After Tango had his Spaceroof fitted, I needed to find somewhere new for the rear speakers to go. Having discounted anywhere within the roof, I elected to go under the seat squab facing forward. That ought to fill the whole cabin nicely with sound.

Where to run the cabling of course was the question. So I decided to go underneath the BraziBay! Fortunately there is a rubber grommet dead centre, just under where the rear seat is located. Using that as the entry point, I fitted the speaker wires into their own plastic loom, which I then chased along the same route as the main VW loom, all the way up to the front, and up through behind the front panel.

I went for Alpine speakers and they don’t intrude much behind the fascia under the seat.

Audio testing takes place today!!

A few extra shots and the all important dimensions.

The speakers I used are Alpine SPG-17C2 - superb sound for £40.

Fabulous sound inside Tango now and Aircooled purrrfection to those we pass by!

Btw to prevent anyone catching themselves or anything on the screws holding the speakers in place, I covered them with the little rubber 'witches hat' style black grommets that would normally fit in the body panels of a classic Beetle. Popped some blutack inside them and then pushed them on. Job done. Basketball

Quite the opposite, very busy also at lunch!

I know you're into your music so knew the choices would be interesting - love that Swales track, it samples one of my all time favourite disco tunes

Haha - yep the original is great - but I prefer the rehash from Cherie Amour in 2000!
