    Remove double din for touchscreen

    a 6.5" screen will fit nicely, you can fit in a 7" screen but you will most likely have to create your own surround or take a look at www.bybyte.com I did have a 7" screen installed in a custom surround in my A3 hooked up to a carputer running Free Ice. Kept it for a while but had on going...

    6 inch subs??

    Where abouts are you located? The plus side of using fiberglass is that it can be moulded to the shape of the car so basically making better use of the space! I don't mind the enclosure protruding in to the boot space a bit, I just don't want it to impede on it to much. Somethink like this...

    6 inch subs??

    6 inch subs??

    Yeah I need to measure it but that is just a rough idea, that is pretty much the depth of the baffle I would use, I know I have an extra 3" between the two door skins but I need to see if the window glass gets in the way, if not then I have plenty of depth. Will the door have enough volume to...

    6 inch subs??

    Sound deadining is easy enough, tweeters have already been removed. the standard speakers are 6.5" in the rear so plenty big enough, only problem maybe the depth! I have already ran wiring from the boot (amp) to the rear doors. Nice to know it will work, saves taking up my boot witha bulky...

    6 inch subs??

    I'm looking at something similar, but instead of putting the subs in the parcel shelf I was considering putting a sub in each rear door, i have a A3 sportback, would the rear doors work as an enclosure of sorts?

    Parcel Shelf - Arrghh!!

    Mine has balls but I also have the perfect solution. See that knob on your radio, turn it clockwise until the rattle/knocking can no longer be heard But yes it is annoying
