    Hello. I have a sub with amp screwed to it in my old car, which I'm thinking of transferring to my B5 avant but would like it to be removable because the dog lives in the back sometimes. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about it? I'm thinking of wiring the two power leads up with a 2-pole speakon joint and the remaining phono and remote lead with a 3-pole XLR. All routed through the cd changer hatch to the front of the car.

    Or do I make the amp permanent somewhere and just run a speakon lead to the boot for the sub. Any thoughts?

    Fast plug for the amp wiring: Vibe FastPlug

    You could hide the fast plug under the boot lining or try plush fit it to the boot side wall or have the amp exposed to said dog.

    Sub removal is often easy if you have a sub box.

    Or... my uncles avant... mounted the amp under the driver seat... and ran two speaker wires to the boot to a connection post - and then connected to that whenever needed.

    I'd say consider a false floor

    Thanks G, amp under the seat / socket in the boot sounds like the best way.
