    Re: Audio install

    Doesn't it still require a tech 2 though?

    sorry i know this is an old thread but i have the aux option but not the cable in the arm rest console. lookin at the original and the cheaper otion, the original has the proper female clip connector to fit in the console whereas the other non genuine version has just the male aux connection.

    If you purchase the genuine one you can't go wrong, oldbonesmcgee had reported poor sound through the cheaper cable.

    I'd go with the genuine one, no idea what was wrong with the one I got but it was poo, you could hear the sound (just) but it was definately not listenable to.

    I did the genuine aux in upgrade today and it was simple, managed to get 10% discount and got it for £46. Fitted it myself in the dealer's car park (taking 5 mins as I had removed the panels, the climate control unit and freed up the head unit at home before going) and then twisted their arm for a techy to come and set it up for me on their plug in computer thing. It is great, now need to sort out the speakers. I have already upgraded to 6x9 Alpines in the rear and some JL 3 inch 2 ways in the dash. Am going to go to my car music man and see what he suggests which I am sure will be cheaper than using the original 7 speaker amp1 upgrade. He has suggested an amp under the passenger seat and 9's in the doors, will let you know what I do

    Re: Audio install

    The amp will be a tight fit under passenger seat and most likely your rear passengers will kick the connections, you can route the cables to the boot to avoid this or buy a very small amp - Vibe Litebox is tiny and is the only one I know off the top of my head.

    9's in the door? They will not fit without grinding part of the door off, the factory size is 6.5".

    Pictures of where to get remote on for amps here
    The kinda power you'll be running will require a separate feed from the front so there's no need to use amp2 connector
    As you have wiring for amp 2 I'm guessing you have amp1 fitted (under passenger seat) if so I would use the output of amp1 into a speaker - line converter (low - high impedance converter) for the audio

    Re: Audio install

    HELP! I cannot find anywhere to ask a question, but this thread might be able to direct me. My SAAB radio died and I replaced it with a Pioneer unit, installed by a specialist. All of the audio warning sounds do not now work. Is there any fix to this?
