Thats a long way from me.
I dont think that the punto's had the wiring loom installed unless the sub was fitted to the car.
Have you looked at the guide because it really is easy to fit a sub and amp in the punto. The hardest thing that i found was running the RCA connectors to the headunit but im sure that some genius on the forum has found an easy way through.
The problem that you have with distorting standard speakers running off the headunit will always be there because you have nothing to tell the speakers not to play top end bass that they cant handle. Even if you put an active sub you would probably have to set the bass on the headunit to get the best sound.
ok since i wrk in ripspeed/halfords, the charge is usually a flat £65, i have heard other stores chargind £40 per hour, generaly the staff are dead on and you can pull a few strings
ive installed a few sound systems and the theory behind it is simple, so is attaching everything, the onli real difficulty is in making it all concealed. if your unit has a pre-out, attach the remote wire to the amp, a live feed coming from the battery (its a good idea to use an in-line fuse) and earth on something decent, then run auxilary connections from your headunit to the sub/amp and ur srtd
since ur unsure wat 2 do just get an ACTIVE sub and amp, saves you a lot of hassle
no, you will always need to amp a sub, if you still get the same quality of amp and sub as an active pair the sound will be the same, but when you buy an active sub there already is am amp with it and its perfectly matched for it. since youre not too sure what youre doing its easier to just connect the wires to the in-built amp and the sub will work without having to figure out wiring between the sub and amp as well
lol, ok in passive systems you will have to buy an amp, sub, wiring kit and an enclosure which is a lot more expensive and difficult to do, you can get small active fli or fusion subs in small enclosure with wiring kit and enclosure included plus wiring kit for bout 100
btw "active" is sub and amp built into one
"passive" is where you do it all seperatly
Not necessarily. If you did it all separately then there's only 2 more wires you'd have to wire in - the remote and the speaker wire. If you bought a prefab box then the sub would only need screwing in - it's only an extra 5 minutes work if that.
