Philips Car Active Subwoofer

Underseat Car Active Subwoofer Installation on Toyota Vios 2010

Recently I’ve earned some extra bucks and I decided to reward myself with a new toy, a Philips underseat car active subwoofer that cost me RM730 with the RCA cables. I’ve installed the car active subwoofer  into my GT Street Toyota Vios.

Initially I would like to do it myself to install this Philips Car Active Subwoofer, but I realized the installation process is quite complex and time consuming. If I am to install it myself, it would take me one whole day. So I decided to let the car accessories shop worker do the installation for me instead. I’ve captured the photos of the installation steps.

There are 2 major items required to be removed :
a) USB/CD player from the Toyota Vios dashboard
b) Driver seat

Good effect! The bass effect is strong and exceed my expectation. The whole Toyota Vios is ‘shaking’ when the bass sound is playing. Now I love my car even more!
