Rear Speakers And Installing Sub

11 posts in this topic

Ive decided to add a sub an amp to my mk7.But from searches it is not mentioned what colour the rear speker wires are.

i have the base model mk7 with only 4 speakers and have from searching the forum,think i have found the rear speaker block.I located this in the B pillar at the bottom next to the seatbelt it was wrapped up in some thin padded foam glued there doing nothing.I have attached pictures so those that have done the install no exactly if it is for the rear speaker passenger side.

Cheers.

Just regarding doing this install on my car.

After taking my stereo out useing titaniumsteves removal guide which is a pain in the bum

and is not easy to say the least,after getting the circuit tester on my wires i found my remote wire and it is not blue and is nowhere near as thick as his,mine is blue and purple and the same thickness as the speaker wires but is in exactly the same place as steves blue wire and every other wire is exactly the same other than this remote wire.I wouldnt have a clue why this is but my stereo is the basic model with no bluetooth or any other futuristic rocket propelled gadgets.Thought i would mention this just incase some of you do this mod and find out there is no blue wire there but a different colour.

So the install is done and now its a matter of ford to activate my speakers or some kind person with the hardware and software to do it.(Dont fancy flying to Aus do you nath for a day ;) )

The charge was $75.00 for diagnostic work and they want me to print out the screenshot you posted nath so they no exactly what menu they need to look at.
