Did you get the Tarraco as a family car? I just got one because I like the look of itdanny_kay1710 said:Hi all,
Took delivery just before lockdown of my new Indium Grey Tarraco. Came from a Golf R so quite a big jump.
Looking for some tips on improving sound system if anyone has any... And any other smaller cosmetic changes I might be able to make
I like you have come from big installs and know what good car audio is. I used to compete in late eighties in sound offs with installs costing as much as 1/2 a brand new golf GTi in its day. I competed in the sound quality group not SPL comps so balance and staging was the main goal, not vibrating all my hairs off! During the 90's and 00's I did custom installs as part of my job.danny_kay1710 said:I'm just used to something a bit better than stock. In my Golf I got the plug and play subwoofer added as I couldn't spec the dynaudio.
The above was the thing I had installed. The specs say it fits the Tiguan you think that also means would work in the Tarraco if I was to buy it again?
In the car before that I had the Harman Kardon system in the BMW. Before that I was a lot younger and did full blown car audio.
I'm not looking to vibrate my car to bits but I do prefer the system to have a low end. And so far I just don't really feel it has one. The sound overall is a bit flat no matter how muchI play with the EQ, not to mention quieter than expected. Over half volume to really drown out background noise.
Maybe I've just been spoilt in previous cars
I just saw this, it doesn't have a sub but its plug and play DSP with amp.danny_kay1710 said:I had VW install that plug and play system as it needs coding. I'm not scared of the plug and play wiring but didn't have a coding device - installation by garage was actually less than buying such a device.
Wish the VAG EQ was a bit better. Low,med,hi just isn't enough flexibility.
I don't mind spending money, just as long as I can spread it out. Its been a while since I've done any complex installs so would like to ease in a bit before going too mad!
All of the car audio stuff seems to assume you've went to the hassle of running your own dedicated power, I've no idea how easy/difficult getting a cable into the cabin from battery would be. I should really look to see if there is any easy candidates once I get out of work
