    I have had the amp running for about 3 weeks now and have been checking the fuse and connection for any heat build up and it's all been fine.

    I had to have the rear near side inner trim out when I was fitting my towbar wiring , and it was a bugger to get back without marking so didnt want to go ripping out more interior trim ..

    Like I said , the main wiring going to this fuse panel is really heavy duty . And the Bose amp is fed from fuse 2 , so I figured I would use the same location Attachment 37005
    Has this approach of wiring the amp to the fuse box been holding up? Did you still have to run wire up the passenger side anyways to get the sub to communicate with the main interface, or run up a small dial to control the sub? Thanks for your insight!!

Also I wired the amp from the fuse box in the boot on the left hand side panel . Fuse no 2 on the red row is the fuse that the Bose upgrade would have used anyway . I also made a connector to the sub 4 ohm feed using cut down space terminals and heatshrink . This has been cable tied in , but the beauty is that i can revert this whole system back to stock in about 15 mins including de wiring it
    Is it safe to connect it to the fuse ?

    Hello folks,

    I have a 2018 Audi Q7 4M with Audi Sound System, of course the stock system is rubbish so I want to upgrade it.

    What do you think about this configuration

    1. Center Speaker - Audison AV 3.0
    2. Front Doors - Audison AV K6
    3. Rear Doors - Audison AV K6A
    4. MOST Data Bus - Audison bit DMI
    5. Amp and DSP - Audison AP F8.9 bit

    I've chosen to use the MOST data-bus since the MIB2 infotainment unit has support for this and the only thing that I need is a MOST Y splitter behind the Instrument Cluster and a MOST line to the boot, where I plan to locate the Audison bit DMI and Audison AP F8.9 bit. O f course I will also have to code CAN Gateway(19) and MIB2(5F) and a new module will appear in the installation list, module `Digital Sound System Control Module J525`(47).

    What do you think about this configuration, will it be better than Bose sound system?

    Thanks to all who added detail to this thread. Was useful putting together my sub upgrade in my 4M Q7.

    Just finished fitting Kicker downfiring 10" shallow mount subs and a monoblock amp to my basic Audi system. So much better, but makes me want to upgrade the door speakers as well.

    Hi all,
    Many thanks for those who contributed to this great post so far.

    Anameth, are you still happy with your focal speakers (ISU 200 / 165) ?
    I am considering the exact same project and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
