recently brought a 97 audi A3 black 3 door. had 2 buy the 1.6 for insurance as im 22. have completly upgraded the sound system with the following components and the prices for them in case anyone wants to buy similar parts:
Kenwood PSW9521 mp3/wmp head unit £379
2x Alpine 12" R Type subs around £200 each
2x Kenwood amps to power the subs around £190 each
Kenwood 6x9's fitted on the parcel shelf £100
Diamond Audio M651 13cm component speakers for the front, £370
Phoenix gold 250.2 tantrum amp to power the front components £349
Kenwood 10 disc changer around £100
over £200 worth of cabling/connectors 2 hook everything up.
obviously, this is a top of the range install in regards 2 the components used. im into my ice big time, the 1st thing i do when i buy a new car is rip out all the standard stuff and replace it. i always do it myself as well, looks perfect, u can't c any cabling or anything looks professional. sounds awesome, when i first hooked it up in my a3 the other day, the rear view mirror fell off from the bass! anyway, basically (im not boasting) i know a-z about car audio stuff/products, and about how they all fit together, which speakers are best, which subs r best etc etc, so if anyone got any questions or wants 2 know anything just ask me, one thing i noticed on this site is that there is a tad lack of knowledge when it comes to mid-high end ice setups, alot of ppl go and spend silly money on a head unit 4 example when they could get a much better one 4 the money. thats all!!
