    Id just like to thank Andy Mac for putting together the stealth sub for me.
    Took me all morning to get it all sorted, had some rewiring to do but it is WELL worth doing, the sound is excellent with the stock speakers, the BASS is more than enough for what I wannt, and I still have all of my boot :arco:

    If anyone else is considering this for their A3 (8L) then I would highly recomend it.
    I wanted to build a box as a project and keep costs down, but im sooo glad I didnt go down that route, the cost is reasonable and well worth getting if you want a sub/amp upgrade.

    Thanks again :salute:

    I second that, plus I can still get the clubs in the boot minus the driver.

    Doesn't take too long and well worth the effort + you get an empty boot.

    Read the instructions before starting. I have done 2 now and the hardest bit the was cutting a ground nut thread off. The first time I did it with a hacksaw. The 2nd time the company bought a Dremel.

    Any help just ask Andy or here.

    He will reply give him time.

    I think it is about ~£300 for the package. He is down south west from you on the coast and can do the fitting for a bit more. He does include very good instructions and I have done 2 now.

    This is a sub in an MDF box made to the same pattern as the OE one isn't it?

    I'm looking at some Focals for the front of my BM, they look pretty good.
    How are the Rainbows?
