Thread: The Baby Boomer Project

  1. #1

    Cool The Baby Boom Box Project

    Okay folks, going back to my 90s experiences here. Got the car (A2 TDI with Red Leather, and a few other extras, mega mileage, but cleaner than it by rights deserves to be).

    Plans as follows:


    • New wheels - Nothelle Classics - Done by Me!
    • Upgrade head unit to something a bit more interesting - Changed ideas on head unit
    • Upgrade speakers to something special - Cancelled, adding Bose instead.
    • Add Denon DCA800 Amplifier (6-channel, 100w per channel) - Cancelled, as above
    • Add bass bin - Cancelled, as above
    • Upgrade to Double Din - Done by Timmus
    • Upgrade to Bose - Done by Timmus
    • Cruise Control - Done by Timmus
    • Upgrade head unit to something more modern - Fitted a Symphony III with 6 CD Changer from A3. Coded and pushed into slot by Timmus - Needs a good few hours of dremmel work to fit flush with dash
    • Add some sort of SatNav device - Done by me (10" Android Tablet with 4G)
    • Clean up the paintwork
    • Remap - Although it has got 194k miles on the engine, so is it worth it? - Done by Yorkshire Remaps, subsequently found a tuning box fitted, which makes for some interesting readings...
    • Colour DIS - need to work with Tom
    • Rear cup holders (lol - I can't afford them!)
    • Fit proper TDi front undertray
    • Fit fog lights - Done by Timmus
    • Red Leather Dashboard - Bit of a dream this one, to match the red interior
    • TT Red Leather Front Seats - Trying to find a set of Basketball Stitch red leather seats...
    • Audi Legends Begonia MF Steering wheel (from A1) - Ordered
    • Audi Legends Begonia gear gaiter (again from A1) - Ordered

    How about these wheels?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aloy-Whell...3D302236175672

    They should bolt straight on (depending on if the ET is around 35) and virtually no rubbing especially with some minor inner arch trimming (if you want to remove all of the rubbing)

    One question - What sized speakers will fit? I assume 6" main drivers, but what size are the tweeters, and any room for a third (4" drivers) anywhere?

    Great!

    I wasn't sure how "special" you meant.

    Looking forward to seeing this project develop.

    Best wishes

    nothing without adapters or taking an existing one and then butchering. With effort you can fit a real 170mm driver in place, but it's not easy. And there's no space for a mid, either.
    27TFFNs fit if I remember correctly, I think it's a 50mm dia hole.

    Do not expect spoonfeeding, you will be disappointed.

    That's a bummer I'll have a look around, see what I can get. What adapters are needed, and if so - what size are you looking at then?

    I'll be dropping 170mm drivers in, probably 2.5" mids... let's see. Have to get the new garage clear first before I can think about the A2 much.

    Hmm - sounds interesting, where are you putting the 2.5" mids?
