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

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

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?
