    AndyMac Sub Upgrade

    [ QUOTE ] Hi Adam, Good to hear the Sub upgrade is going well! Just wanted to ask you a quick question about your infinity Kappas. How easy was it to install them in your A3? Do you have the model 8P A3? How good do they sound? Do they handle high volumes well? Did you need a speaker adapter...

    Please Help: Bose + Alpine 9835 Setup Issues

    [ QUOTE ] In my experience running RCA's down the other side of the car (from power) has never cured an interference problem, it may improve the problem very slightly but is only masking the real cause of the problem. Good RCA's should not need to be decoupled from the power cable. Running them...

    Please Help: Bose + Alpine 9835 Setup Issues

    [ QUOTE ] Those specs are spot on, the F405 is: 60w x 4 (4 ohm) 180w x 2 bridged (4 ohm) all RMS @ 14v but the birth certificate with the amp is showing 30% more power (as is normally the case with Alpine). [/ QUOTE ] Cool...will keep the RF then. Cheers, Adam

    Please Help: Bose + Alpine 9835 Setup Issues

    [ QUOTE ] Hi Adam It's the MRV-F405, but I don't have an infinite supply (only have one at the moment). They're quite hard to find, as most people are selling F300 series (4x30w) which aren't powerful enough). I just keep a look out on ebay, see one that's either described badly or ends at a...

    Please Help: Bose + Alpine 9835 Setup Issues

    1 more thing ... the 9835 has a very trick time delay feature built in which is great if you do plan to run 4 speakers, and even works very well with 2. You measure the distance from each speaker to your listening position then you input the values into the Alpine IPersonalize website and you...

    Please Help: Bose + Alpine 9835 Setup Issues

    [ QUOTE ] Thanks for your help guys. To be honest if I'd knew all this before replacing the concert head unit I wouldn't have bothered, as I was quite impressed with the BOSE sound quality. OK, so if I'm going to ditch the BOSE system completely, firstly what do I need i order for the system...

    Please Help: Bose + Alpine 9835 Setup Issues

    What Andy said ..the 9835 is far too good a HU to be wasted on naff bose speakers and sub. I run the 9835 with Infinity comps, RF 500X 4 channel amp and an Andymac sub - sounds amazing! If they haven't run RCAs from the alpine specific to the sub you will find it impossible to control the...

    American and English ICE.....

    I run a US spec Alpine 9835 in my car, the only differences are: 1) Tuner doesn't support RDS/EON so you wont get station names or traffic info interrupts 2) They dont ship with an ISO loom, separate wires 1 isn't an issue for me, hardly ever listen to the radio. You will need to change the...

    Alpine HU finally installed ... couple of quick qs

    [ QUOTE ] simfin said: I have the same problem on my Golf mk5 install. I think the issue with using the cigarette lighter as a light source is that, as you dim the dash lights, using the dimmer,then this also dimms light on the 'lighter' - this will take it below 12volt, at which some point the...

    [ QUOTE ] AndyMac said: Hi Adam There was a post on here a while back somewhere stating that Audi would no longer provide codes FOC and that it did take 20 mins to type it all in to their magic system to retrieve the code. Anyway I thought you had the Alpine installed now? [/ QUOTE ] I...

    Radio codes

    Anyone else had to get one from Audi before? The Radio code card that came with the car was never completed by the dealer that originally sold the car (despite that dealer just telling me that was impossible and they'd have to see it). On the back of the card it clearly states that if lost...

    [ QUOTE ] AndyMac said: The dimmer feed should be the wire going to the pin denoted as a circle with little legs coming off it (like a sun), next to the ground pin IIRC. Caraudiodirect have the antenna amps antenna amp [/ QUOTE ] Thanks Andy, that was the pin I tested. Red/white iirc -...
