    I'm curious to see what other B5 Avant owners has done with their standard sub set and how they fitted any after market stuff.

    Post your pics and specs.


    Mine is 100% standard apart from the head unit.

    I dont have any pics of my front end, as i've still not bothered to buy a properly fitting set of the fascia adaptors, so theres a huge gaping hole around the head unit.

    Head unit is a Pioneer DEH-P3630MP:

    This provides two line outs which run to a pair of amps mounted to the rear of the back seats:

    The JBL GTO 4000 runs the four door speakers (4x50w RMS), and the Sony XM-2100GTX drives the sub (250w RMS)

    The sub itself is a Pioneer TS-W305C, in a custom moulded fibreglass and MDF enclosure:

    Its neat and tidy, doesnt take up much room, but sounds great.

    Amps are wired up with a length of 25mm^2 welding cable, small distribution block and 8AWG wiring to each amp. Each amp has a 40A fuse, and theres a 80A fuse at the battery.

    I have a JVC AVX2 dvd headunit, currently purchasing some Hertz 130 comps for front to replace standard, have an Alpine 12" sub for boot and will be run off an Alpine MRV F407 amp.

    Currently installing so will have pics later.

    Alpine CDR ipod ready head unit, Pioneer co-axial door speakers, uprated upper front door tweeters, rear door speakers removed, Alpine Active 12'' sub in boot. Sounds ok, but ideally would have better door speakers (components, maybe rainbows) and have a seperate amp running them. Not a massive ice nut though so cant be bothered.

    I have a £45 head unit out of aldi. it plays everything off my phone via bluetooth, the most functional and subtle looking head unit ive ever owned. only drawback is the lighting is a bit bright, I need to remember to play about with resistirs to dull it a bit

    Im my old Avant I had a Kenwood PS1070R and 6 disc changer running a pair of cheap XS Liberator amps, Kenwood components in the front doors and a custom box in the boot with Infinity 6x9's anda Kicker 12" sub

    [​IMG]

    For a cheap and cheerful system it sounded ok and was thrown together with kit I had lying around

    Some A3 guys have done it, i think theres a thread in the Ice forum.

    You may struggle to get enough volume for a decent sized sub though, and you'd have to be careful to ensure you left enough access for the bulbs.

    Thats the main problem.
    JL 6W3 might be an idea.

    I doubt theres much point in a diddy little 6" sub.

    You can probably fit a 10" in there if you try!

    may be, I dont need any of the space used for the changer any more.
    So can expand it all out to that.
    I can move my 12v and 240v supply.

    When I get my new boot pannels i'll strip it all out and attempt a build.

    yeh, i think with the speaker mounted more or less at the hatch opening, and the box following the original lines of the OEM sub enclosure, and adding in the cd changer area you should be fine.

    You could even use the original box as a starting point. Block off the bass port, and the original sub hole, and cut the side out and expand it using fibreglass into the area the original cdchanger used up.

    Thats what i'm thinking.
    Could then try and mould the fiber glass so I still got access to the bulbs.

    I just need some new planels, fiber glass and time. :)
