I will get amplifier which I was using in my old car. I have still not got the delivery so I can let you know completely once I spend some good time with it. Requested delivery on 28th October. Also, getting it for 45k with reverse camera included.

Have you changed the speakers in Skoda Rapid ?
I wanted to change to 6.5inch component speakers
But I am worried about the space in front doors, I dont see any space for tweeters

Anyone here having any experience upgrading HU and speakers to component
I was planning velocity VC 652 along with Philadelphia

I will get my car delivered today. I will explore options to upgrade speakers and install an amp. Yes, even I am wondering where and how to install tweeters as I am so used to components now.

Lot many people have replaced HU
But there is no clear mentioning about compatible speaker size.
No mention abt where the tweeters were incorporated.
Wanted to make use of ongoing diwali sale but stuck without help, local technitians who promote their sale of stuffs are of no help
And they are more used to drilling and fixing on door pads , A pillars and dash boards
Stuck

Hello All,

I got the Blaupunkt Philadelphia 845 installed on my Polo Highline TDI 1.5

Somehow both me and the wife are not happy with the Sound output for both the USB and Radio. The stock system sounded better we feel. It cost me 55k and I am now thinking my earlier system sounded better.

Could the Blaupunkt guys help or is it just that much there it is?

Regards
Bharath

Have you changed the speakers? The stock speakers are optimized to work with the stock system's weaknesses. I have the 835 with Focal speakers and it sounds awesome.

As far as the radio is concerned, the connector needs to be twisted a little to make a firm connection. The poor radio quality happened with me as well until the installers figured out what the problem was. No problem since then -

Thanks for that,

There is no change in speakers. The wife could clearly make out the difference and the old stock just sounded that tad bit better.

I am not sure if i want to buy new speakers but let me check if I could play around with the equalizers and make it any better.

Thanks again
Regards

Are you referring to the focal specially for vw? If so I to have this set but not really liking the sound. The bass vibrates my dash as soon as i increase the volume.

I don't have the specific VW model but the speakers I have and the VW ones are based on the same design, I think.

See the video above, I have no rattles. I also cannot understand how speakers in the door can make the dash rattle -- something must be lose. If you want to reduce the base, there are two things to check -- one is the equalizer and second is the bass boost level in settings.
