    Jetta / Bora MK6 / 2011 and up
    I’ve looked through the manuals and all I can find about the subwoofer is how to uninstall and reinstall. I thought in the supplemental audio manual it said you could find the subwoofer setting in the stereo someplace. I can only find volume, fader, bass, treble, etc. I opened the trunk to make...
  2. VW Premium Eight Question

    Passat B7 Forums
    Hi All, So in my short time with my new VW, I have noticed how underwhelming the sound system is. I understand it came with a Fender system with the more upmarket models, but it almost seems like I turn it up and the amp automatically lowers the Bass. I assume this is to protect the speakers...

    Hello all. First post for me. I have a new 2013 Jetta TDI with the Nav system including the upgraded Fender sound system. The speaker in the driver's door causes annoying vibrations within the door when the sound reaches certain pitches or sound wavelengths. It is especially bad during talk...

    VW CC Technical Forum
    Has anyone added a powered sub? I have a 2012 Lux Plus with RNS510. The sound is nice but I feel it lacks bass. Last car had a powered Bazooka in the trunk, so maybe it is what I am used to.

    Private Party 'For Sale' Classifieds
    I have for sale a slimline kicker 10 '' (kicker tc10) and a kenwood amp. The sub is for keeping a lot of room still and not blocking all the room in your trunk or hatch. It does not put out alot of bass but does sound very crisp and thumps for being only one ten. It s ideal for a rabbit, golf...
