  2. Subwoofer Wiring Help!?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have installed a subwoofer and amplifier in the trunk of the car.

  7. Audio system

    Hey guys I have a 06 9-3 and I need your opinion. I'm going to switch out the stock radio for an aftermarket one. I noticed the stock unit is shaped kind of odd. Does the after market radio look good with a indash radio kit? and are there certain brands of indash kits you guys reccommend?
