Fitting an Amplifier and speakers
I have just upgraded the ICE On my Type R as the original system left a lot to be desired as I appreciate clarity when listening to music. I have fitted 6" JL speakers model TR6550, put dynamat in the doors and also fitted an Amp in-between the outer and inner skin at the rear behind the interior card (what would be the rear door card if it was a 5 door). I was going to replace the radio with a Sony DVD double din touch screen, but was put of as the original radio would need to be repositioned and £200 spent on a new radio fascia. I did try the speakers with out the amp, but the sound quality was poor as the radio has little power. I also fitted a line level converter which I was very dubious of, but there is no hum or hiss and must say sounds as good as a line level out put on a after market head unit, so no need to buy a clean sweep. I am now very very happy with the sound quality and have plenty of Mid bass, so much clearer when comparing it to the Bass works. in case some one want to know how i ran the power cable from the battery, there is a plate behind the glove box which is where the wirring loom would be if the car was left hand drive.
