  1. Hello, I am looking to upgrade the head unit in a vw lupo so that it has aux input and Bluetooth connectivity to play music. I have absolutely no knowledge at all in this area and was wondering if somebody could provide some suggestions/recommendations on head units that are good quality. Many Thanks
  2. Hello everyone. I will share to everyone my simple experience with vw lupo and crossovers for speakers. \\ Total work for me - about 4 hours, I guess it is possible to install crossovers within 2 hours if you know where to put them. I have very poorly equipped vw lupo, with just 4 speakers - two mid range speakers in doors and two tweeters in front panel. I use a radio with pioneer mosfet 50w x4 head unit. All the time tweeters tries to sound as loud as possible and mid range spekers starts to work only after the tweeters reach their limits already. For this reason I was shure I need to install crossovers. I found the left door and left tweeter wires slpitting in air vent, however I needed to disassemble half of the front panel, you can try to do all the wiring just by gently pulling out the left air vent, by just taking off the thick insulating tape from the wires. As you can see in picture with wires, speaker wiring in vw lupo is very simple, they just made an u-turn in mid range speaker wire for tweeter and added tweeter wire in the end, this results in the effect, that tweeters and mid range speakers gets the same intensity of music output power from the radio. The left side is actually more easy, you can just cut the wires, clean a bit of insulation material from the ends of all 6 wires, and just connect the crossover. I simply screwed the crossover in the blank space in the bottom of the picture, the left air vent goes above, however I removed top covers to both of these crossovers because of limited space. I can add photo of results if anyone will be interested. The right crossover was more complicated, first you need to remove the headlight switch (turn switch to off possition, press the switch in and turn it clockwise), then you will be able to unscrew a hex bolt, after that just gently pull out the right vent hose. I also removed instrument cluster to make acess to wires more easy, because in the right side you will need to solder some extensions to wires. I screwed the tweeter as you can see in picture, as I said - didnt use the top cover of the crossover because of limited space. Everything goes in the place without any extra transfromations. OEM speakers are not high end, and radio needs to be turned louder after this modification, but the speakers sounds briliantly and thats fine for this car.

  6. Hi guys I'm a complete audio novice so go easy please. I want to upgrade my sound system in my Lupo 1.0. I'm looking at replacing the front speakers for Rainbow DL-X6s. I'm aware I need to get the adapter ring for them to fit. http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/rainbow-dl-x6-6-5-coaxial-speakers I'm wanting to put the following sub in the boot- Hertz Energy ES 250D.5. http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/hertz-energy-es250d-5 Does anybody have any experience with these? Would you recommend them? If not is there something better out there for similar money? And will this amp be powerful enough to run them? It states it can be ran as a 3 channel system. Hertz HCP 4D http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/hertz-hcp-4d Thanks in advance for in input and advice
  7. Just a quick post.... I was having lots of trouble with water getting in my passenger footwell for ages until I realised the problem... This is a post for everyone else to consider when they are searching for a water leak problem! Basicaly, When the door speakers were mounted to the cars from new, they used rivets and the back of the mooting plates were SEALED to the inside of the door. This prevents the water that is designed to get into the door, coming in the car and simply drains out the holes in the bottom of the door. So when you get your lovely Lupo and someone (the previous owner to mine) has decided to put some s**t aftermarket c**py speakers in instead, make sure you check they're nicely fitted and sealed in some form... Its also not good to use MDF for adaptor plates, as they love water and then your car will be damp... use plastic. Or just get some of the original speakers and fit them, which is what I intend to do! The other benefit of the originals is they had some protection on the back to stop the rear connections going rusty and corroded. Makes me sad that the previous owner also used wood screws to fit his speakers whats wrong with people like that! Hope this helps.
  8. Can the speaker and plastic adapter/ring be split or are they as a whole? Thanks!
  9. What are the best quality speakers to get that will fit in a VW Lupo (that are quite cheap)?
  10. Ok, so I want to replace the standard front door speakers on my 1.4 Lupo and I have a few questions.... 1. What size speakers can I fit in there? 2. Can anyone suggest some speakers from experience? 3. How difficult are they to replace? Thanks from Lewis

  12. hi guys, just bought a lupo a few months back and im in the process of mending everything that is wrong with it before i get it back on the road, im just after abit of advice really, ive rewired the rear speakers as the sound quality was terrible due to frayed cables and bad connections. i didnt find this too difficult but behind the head unit was a mass of connectors, taped connections, just a general mess really, after ive worked through the mess and figured out what he had done with the rats nest thats behind my head unit i turned the ignition on and my battery was totally flat and then when i turned the key back the off position the dials started to shake for a couple of seconds wondered if anybody has heard or seen this happen before? any help would be greatly appreciated cheers
