    Best audio upgrade for Mk6

    Hi All,
    I'm interested in upgrading the sound system (mine is just standard), and wondering if anyone has a good and relatively easy upgrade for the audio system in my Mk6R? Was thinking front splits amp and small sub?
    Also recommended audio shops in Sydney city or northern beaches would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Anthony

    Hey Anthony

    I have:
    Focal splits at the front ( http://www.focalaustralia.com.au/pro...vw-golf-6-kit/) the tweeters are really easy to install, they pretty much just click in. The bigger speakers were a bit harder because they didn't match the holes from the original speakers.

    Got a 10' Kicker sub back in the boot. The sub was a ready to install unit (came with box and everything) from JB Hi Fi. It does take a bit of space from the boot but can easily be disconnected and taken out of the car if needed.

    They are connected to a mid to high range JL amp

    I prefer good quality sound over loud and show off so my set up suits my need.

    Overall the whole pack sounds pretty good and I'm happy with the investment.

    Good luck
    Ken

    This is my system.

    Little bit more then a simple one but gives you idea's. The reason i went with this boot setup as i like clear defined sound, not after just doof doof.
    Full flat boot install, sub box itself is removable as i do take the car racing as much as i can. The amp rack stays in place all the time

    I couldn't mount amps under seats as i have heated leather and there is no room


    Headunit: Alpine IVA double din
    Front speakers: Audio Development 6.5"
    Amps: Mosconi 100.4 + 200.2
    Subs: Arc Audio Black 10's



    Amp rack in boot


    For a simple system i would always advise upgrading the headunit.
    A 4ch amp will suit to run both a 10" sub and also the front speakers.

    Great looking kit.. does the alpine integrate with steering controls, blue tooth and climate control? Thanks

    Thanks for the comments guys, will be alot better then i save and put in the mosconi 6to8 Aerospace and full Dynaudio 3ways.

    The alpine fully integrates into the MK6

    Ill be putting one of these in myself or something similar. Can go 7 or 8" screen just depends how much you want to spend

    I would suggest going and seeing FHRX as i know they do good work in NSW

    Here is a photo of my (humble) sub.

    It'll give you an idea of how much space a 10' sub occupies

    My 4 channels amp is installed underneath the passenger's seat
