500 Interscope Speakers
« on: September 11, 2009, 11:43:36 am »
I have seen a few pictures that say the audio system has a sub under the seat and a 130w amp.

Is this standard with the interscope system in the 500 or extra? ???

    There is a sub under the seat but there seems to be a couple of versions of the system and I'm not wholly sure which is which, the UK get one as standard which if you believe the blurb is slightly less powerful than the EU one which they pay for. tbh its a good sounding system for a 'freebie'. I'll dig round and see if I can find the post with the specs in.

    Thanks for that.  I'm not very good with the whole stereo stuff.  I'm better with computers. :)

    So is the sub just got the amp on it or do all the speakers get amped?  Is it just under the drivers seat or the passenger too?  Having the leather option wont mean there isn't room for the sub will it?

    It is standard no matter which seats you have, and it just under the drivers seat. The point of an amp is it boosts the output of the stereo to all speakers. Although to be honest I'm in the same boat computers are more my thang.

    So is the amp built into the sub, as aren't they normally seperate boxes 'rude boys' put in the boot of their Saxo's?   ;D

    iirc the amp is in the boot, it is a seperate unit. Its a tiny car and the system appears to be tuned more for clarity rther than outright eardrum bursting bass. Its a good system I would prob pay for it if was an option (we have its non-branded sister in our panda so I had a preview) although you obviously could get better by purchasing speakers, head units etc. but its good enough not to bother if its not what you are seriously into.

    Ah they hide it in the boot do they!

    Thanks for the help! :)

    Overall I'm pleased with the stereo.  I've inherited a bit of audiophilia from my dad so am easily irritated by crap stereo and find it hard to realistically expect too much in a car when first you must drown out the wind/engine/tyre noise.

    On very loud, I get a disturbing harsh clicking from the pillar speakers as they distort.  But that is pretty loud (CD at 26, 27 or so).
