Audio Install Progress

January 10th, 2010 at 12:30 pm

I got the headunit (Pioneer DEH-P6900UB) installed yesterday along with the amp (JL Audio 500/1).

I thought the install was going to be simple since the Tiguan is based on the MK5 platform.  I thought wrong.  It took about an hour and a half just to get the power wire through the firewall.

I still need to install the subs (Two 12 inch JL Audio W3V2′s in a sealed box), but that won’t take more than ten minutes.  I ran out of time as I had other plans later in the day.

I should be able to get the subs in sometime this week.  I will post photos after the install is complete.

    Where were you able to run the power wire through the fire wall? Behind the battery? Any picts on the install

    Yeah, I was able to get the power wire ran through the firewall. I had to remove the battery to do so.

    Once the battery is removed, you will see an “accordion” type wiring harness that runs through the firewall. I ran the power wire through that.

    You can see what I am talking about if you look under the drivers side foot well.

    I did not take any photos during the install unfortunately. However, I will get photos once the install is complete.
