Re: GP sub woofer HELP

I asked the same question at my local fiat dealers and they were about to order the sub for me when one of the technicians cames out and told me it couldnt be retro fitted as there is no wiring for it and the speakers in the car are also wired differently. (I guessed he meant low pass for sub and high pass frequencies for other speakers).
But if you find out different then tell us on here as I was real dissapointed when I found I couldnt have it so if it turns out I can then nice one!

Also be aware of any extra costs for plugs and wiring and screws and maybe even a bracket to hold the sub in place. When told i couldnt hacve the sub I ordered the armrest instead which was £60 odd +vat for the armrest alone but with all the extra bits required for it to fit it came to £140!!!

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

There is a great thread about retro fitting the sub here. It's in Italian but you can use altavista to translate it. As far as I understand it depends on the version of the Blaupunkt radio you got. The newer version doesn't have the wire in the boot (newer I guess means the one with mp3). I haven't had a chance to read trough all the 26 pages. Also has some pictures so you can recognize the wire you should have.

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

I stripped my panel on right handside today, and could not find any wiring in there. It was only two wires, which goes to taillights.
I still waiting for my dealer.

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

I got free instalation with it cus i know a garage but im sure it wouldnt cost over 30 quid. Boot space aint really an issue the grande has a big boot compared to the older models and i can still fit alot of stuff in the boot. Having it Just makes it sound alot better

Re: GP sub woofer HELP

Blaupunkt tend to use modular cabling. The sub lead will probably fit with a block conector on the back of the radio and then on to the sub. The wiring should be simple, was on my old mk2 and its the same kind of set up, cannot see any reason why it wont be any different now. If the cable comes with the sub, then you will be laughing, if not www.bluespot.co.uk should be able to help with a cable. Whip the radio out and see ifr you can see the conectors, (wont be labeled, but will have lots of pins) if you want to compare wiring with mine (factory fitted sub) PM me.
