|Aftermarket Amp and Speaker Install- Audi TT Roadster|
|Print Page||Close Window|
Here is the whole set-up.
It is a dual amp configuration of a Philips TDA8563Q 2x40W amp chip. There are two of these "chips inch on this board. One amp runs the sub-woof, in a dual voice-coil mode, the other, runs the two cheap-o rear speakers. These guys.
Here is the OEM Sub-woof, a real cheap 8 inch basic speaker.
I had bought a pair of MB Quart PKC-116 6.5 inch speakers, with an integrated 1 inch tweeter. These are supposed to fit the TT, but they did not tell me it was for the coupe. I had to do some fancy modifications to make them fit the roadster rear area. First I had to fabricate some brackets, to mount the speakers in the same area as the OEM's. I used an aluminum strip I found at Home Depot, and cut and bent it to make the speakers fit. Look closely here at the left and right speakers, and you can see how they are installed.
Once I got the speakers installed, and the wires routed in the back, I went to work on the grilles.
Here is a shot of the new sub-woof, a Fosgate 8 inch model.

I wired into the OEM Head Unit harness at these points. I added in RCA jacks to the connector that represents the line-level outs from the Head Unit.
What good is having a better input system, PhatBox or iPod, if the amp and speakers are not improved.
