    2005 Audi A4 B6 Euro Spec Avant carpc

    Greeting friends,

    I am a new member from Taiwan. I been doing some reading off mp3car forum in the past few weeks with the idea of implementing carpc into my own car. I still have much more to learn but I think I will give it a shot and hopefully don't break too much stuff. Before I go any further here is my car.

    10/30

    Time for upate... been busy with work and all...

    I have received the fully loaded Bloat from Hippohifi. Let's open it up and see what it is all about.


    The legendary small Package with big sound



    Small scratch on the casing... I don't think it will pass ISO9001 anytime soon



    Let's get naked



    Burr Brown PCM1794...needless to say this is the good stuff



    After firing up Bloat and hooking it up to my old YAMAHA DSP-1000. I am happy to report it worked fine so far. Further testing is needed in term of sound quality improvement.

    My motherboard, CPU, RAM, worked fine too. It's time to find the right solid-state drive for it. I am thinking of the new Intel X25-M 80GB SSD. We will see, for now I will just use an old 120GB HD I have laying around. My ideal boot time is 11sec or under...

    I will also start dynamat work this weekend. 40+lbs of isolation material should help to keep some noises down ^^ hopefully~

    Removing the door

    Ok, lets remove the front driver side door panel... hopefully nothing breaks

    last time the panel stays in one piece


    Ok here is the starting point, there is no going back


    Remove the four screws here


    Two more screws underneath here


    Last one at the bottom of the door panel


    Ta da!


    speaker removed


    Oh crap, it's pretty dirty inside and sucks for me because I don't have any cleaning agent on hand before dynamat extreme is to be installed.

    To be continued...

    SR6500 6 3/4 inch Speaker

    Got to work on the project a bit today. According to Crutchfield and other online vendors, SR6500 does not fit B6 Audi A4.

    Here is the information about the speaker
    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-jBvCwhc...00&cc=01&wm=cl

    Well, I bought a pair against their recommendation and set out to modify the factory fitting to make this work (going for OEM look). Anyway, we will let the pictures do the talk.

    Cut off the paper speaker cone




    Proceed to cut off the supporting points indicated in blue


    Here is the result




    Next, the tweeters....

    tweeter

    In continuation of the OEM look, things will stay behind the factory tweeter grill so no hint of modified speakers are given out.

    Factory housing


    Audi OEM tweeter removed


    SR6500 tweeter prior to installation


    Test fit and to my surprise, a direct fit! I added a double side tape to secure it further..and finito ^^

    Hi wasabi_rice, greetz from Barcelona, Spain! Very interesting what you have done so far, specially for A4 B7 owners!

    Any progress with your install? Any pictures of the acoustic insulation?
