  1. Golf/GTI VIII
    Looking for any information regarding audio signal source for an LOC for an aftermarket amp/sub instal package. In many of the previous models (MK 5, 6, 7) I would just tap in right behind the discovery media box in the glove compartment. On the MK8 S model there is NO DISCOVERY BOX in the glove...

    I’m having trouble removing the rear side panels, I have the two door model (not sure if there is a 4 door option) of the 02 Cabrio, specifically GLX . I know there’s the three plugs under the seat, the two screws behind the speaker grill and two hex screws towards the doors, but the panel seems...

  5. Golf/GTI VII
    Hello all, I'm wanting to do a bit of an audio upgrade on my mk7 GTI. I currently have the fender system and it's honestly just lacking everywhere. I was wondering if anyone has the Focal IS VW 180 - 2-way component kit | Focal installed? How do you like it? I was also planning on putting in...

    I searched a lot before posting this and didn't really see it. I've added an aftermarket JL Audio 12W0-4 sub. I'm trying to get the crossover right with the Beats Audio system that came with the car. Has anyone seen a frequency response curve for the stock system? I can't seem to find anything...
  8. Tiguan (MQB)
    Never done an aftermarket audio upgrade this big and I'm unsure of what a standard price would be. Any help? 3.5K is what I was first offered - labor/install/deadening included. Does not include rear speakers (just front pairs, sub, and amp). Here's some audio work from the company's...

    I recently purchased a 2021 VW Tiguan SE R-Line. I love this car in every way except the audio sound quality. I have been looking into adding a sub to accommodate for the bass. I am a little overwhelmed as of which direction to go. Does anyone have any advice, suggestions, or recommendations...
  10. Golf/GTI VII
    As the title suggests, I’m looking to add a powered subwoofer to liven up the bass response in the car. I already have one from my previous car. It’s a 500W 12” Rockford Fosgate. My main concern is: would I be pulling too much off the battery? Is it as simple as installing a powered sub on any...

    For those who have installed it, what is your opinion on the helix sub? Would you suggest it to others? Does it make a significant difference for the price? Thanks

But I am looking to do an aftermarket speaker setup, but I am having trouble locating the actual size of the speaker sizes to replace in my car. Does anyone have any idea...
