I am going to take off the door cars in order to sound deaden them ( surplus dodo mats)..
I was wondering if there are any "cheap" speaker upgrades.. I've seen some speakers but they are too expensive ATM.
Has anyone attempted putting a speaker in the sliding door (T6)? There is a 6 pin contact strip which may enable a speaker to work when the door is shut but looking at the wiring diagrams all the pins are already in use even on a standard, non-motorised door. Is that correct?
I’m hoping for inspiration and help please,
The vehicle in question is a 2019 SE Shuttle SWB
I’m soon to upgrade my basic head unit to Halo 9, have new Alpine speakers fitted upfront and an underseat subwoofer.
My plan is to keep the old door speakers and pillar tweeters...
Having picked up my van I’ve only got sound coming from the passenger side. Balance is set to the middle on the standard head unit but drivers side is totally dead. I can see that there is a wiring loom under the passenger seat for a Kenwood subwoofer which I believe was installed by VW but now...
I have some Audison Voce 6.5” speakers to fit in front doors and realise I’m going to need some adapter rings. I’ve deadened the door (outer, inner and card); do I just stick with some plastic rings I have kicking around, or is it worth getting some MDF rings and if so any recommendations on...
At the start of our journey the stereo (VW kit, no car play or sat nav) worked fine, but now the audio is only coming from the tweeters. I had thought this was a setting issue in the head unit, I’ve set all the audio back to factory settings. Still no sound from the door speakers. I thought it...
I plan on upgrading the speakers in my T6.1 to the Focal ones. At the same time I'll add some sound deadening.
Is there any thing else I should do whilst the door cards are off?
I planned on buying:
Silent Coat 2mm
Focal IS VW 165
I was going to fit the silent coat to the inside of...
Is water ingress in the door speakers a common problem in the T6?
The factory speakers coil complete seized after just a few years.
Replaced them with a factory kit last year and now the left door speaker has become all scratchy and bad. Took the new speakers out and found rust on the backside...
Hi, I'm considering mounting speakers to the rear of my Kombi, just in front of the Motexion bulkhead in the ceiling. These are just to add a bit of fill for the rear passengers so don't need to be fab, but any recommendations, and what depth can I go up to?
EDIT: Marking this as a GUIDE but you'll need to refer to Thread '[GUIDE] Head unit removal and rear speaker wiring' [GUIDE] Head unit removal and rear speaker wiring for how to enable rear speakers on the head unit and wire them in.
Until this week I had temporarily fitted my old front...
Hi all. After replacing my battery I noticed the stereo has gone tinny. All speakers work but lost main sound. Scanned full system but not error codes. Done a 15 min battery disconnect. Removed the stereo and refitted it after 15 mins but still the same. Reset to factory settings. Tried all the...
I was apprehensive about posting about my fitting experience to this Forum. What I see members doing is phenomenal. I am totally in awe. But there have been a couple of very small bits of advice that I've picked up that's been super-handy. If this post helps someone like me - a total rookie - to...
Just bought a T6.1 multivan and I want to tap into the front right door speaker to run a sub wire to the boot. Can someone please confirm the colour of the front right speaker wires please. I have read a few threads and there is varying comments.
My plan is is use the 12v in the boot...
I've just installed a Focal amplifier and the 200mm Focal speakers with T6 mounting kit into my van.
1. The tweeters are pretty nice. Much less fatiguing than the OEM ones.
1. The woofers are pretty poor. Very boomy and lose composure when turned up loud (I've used the...
Saw a reference to these on the 'What have you been doing' thread. They look awesome. Anyone tried them yet ?
Looking to be about £400 for the kit.
There's a smaller 165mm door speak option available too.
