Re: Blaupunkt Active Sub

I still think this blaupunkt sub would be the easiest way to install a sub. It just crimps into the speaker wires on the back of the headunit from my understanding, and also takes the power and ground from the headunit. Just pop it under one of the seats as it's really thin and should be a good setup.

Think I'm going to order one so will let you know how I get on and what it's like!

Alex

Can you give me a bit more info on it's exact location please mate. What exactly am I looking for? I have ordered a sub and need to locate this so I can fit the sub to it. I am going to put the sub under one of the seats so shouldn't need to run cables to the rear.

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

Fitted it the other day, what a difference. It's under the passenger seat, doesn't take much fitting, and really impressive results from a small box. Highly recomended!

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

Hi,

Just bought a Sporting, should be here early March, can't wait. I have ordered mine with sub fitted as a factory option. Does anyone else have this?

Does it sound good? Also, where is it fitted? Is it in the boot or in the car somewhere.

Any Sporting owners got any tips for a new Fiat/Sporting owner?

Cheers

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

hi guys -thought i wuld give you my feedback. I have an aftermarket sub with separate amp wired from the head unit. It took about three hours to sort out from my local stereo store in Canterbury. Now they said there was no RCA output from the mp3 head unit, however they soldered the lead to power the amp wen the head unit turns on and then got the sound from the back speakers. I have to say with what they had avaliable it sounds excellent - and alot better than the Fiat Sub. My advice - Buy aftermarket sub speaker, and amp and if you are not sure get a local stereo dealer to fit it - it is worth it.

Hope that helps.

I have a 1.9 Sporting Grande Punto 56 plate so fairly new model with the USB socket and Blue&Me. - I would imagine this mod can be done on any Grande Punto.

Hi there, took your advice and bought myself exactly the same sub as you alex. The only problem is it doesn't seem to fit under the passenger seat! Do you think you could give me a fitting guide and a wiring guide please!? any help would be much appreciated as i am not familiar with this kind of stuff but the sub does look good! just want to get it up and running!
Cheers
