    General Van Chat
    Hi, I am installing a mini 12v projector in my camper van and would like to run the audio output (35mm headphone jack) so that the sound comes out of the vans inbuilt speakers. Can anyone advise if this is possible and how to go about it? Thanks Jimnibob
  2. Kenwood DNX525DAB vs VW RNS 510 DAB

    Help... I would like to upgrade the T5.1 Factory RCD 310 to double DIN DAB with NAV and Bluetooth Audio. But confess to being a bit bemused. :confused: I have narrowed the choices down to the Kenwood DNX525 but have seen that the Factory RNS510 offers similar spec and also displays NAV info...

  4. T4 Rear bumper vents... can I cover/ remove?

    T4 Conversions
    Hi, I recently took the lining off the side of my van to run some speaker wiring through and found the insulation was naff. I've made a speaker box that fits over the rear wheel arch and so I removed this and the panels to start with some silent coat. But I found there is a vent that goes...

  6. What else is on entertainment circuit?

    I've had an annoying power drain for ages now. Seems like this has destroyed my second battery now so I've got back to investigating it. I finally sat in the cab long enough for things to shutdown and then started pulling fuses. Finally found a big drop in current draw from 250mA to <20mA with...
  7. Audio Quadlock to ISO adapter: Confused/idiot/both?

    I have a 2013 T5, I'm trying to replace the standard radio with a double-din Pioneer. The Halfords guy looked up my reg and sold me a quadlock->ISO harness adapter (PC2-75-4). But it doesn't work! Looking at the pins, it seems the ISO 12V switched line pin (yellow) connects to nothing on the...

    I am trying to decide on a decent audio system for my T4 but immediately came face to face with a wealth of decisions. What Amp, what speakers, what sub, what power management etc etc. What am I looking for? - Sub in separate box under the rock n roll. - Decent front speakers (4") - Decent rear...
  9. To all you audiophiles out there ....... is this possible

    Hi all, I've had an idea in my head for quiet a while now on how I want my audio system set up. Firstly, I don't want to rush out and buy a whole pile of new kit. I have a decent Pioneer head unit, mediocre dash speakers and door speakers in padded door pockets ....... currently it sounds...
  10. Best DAB AV Unit for T5?

    Hi all, The original radio/CD in our 2008 camper is playing up and rather than just replace we're looking to upgrade. Were initially thinking of a single-din unit and a pocket to get a decent choice of DAB units but now thinking that a double-DIN A-V unit might be a more sensible move in the...

  12. How loud is your van??!!

    General T4 Chat
    After never owning a transporter before and having watched mine be lovingly transformed from a 2.4 panel van to a 1.9tdi full camper conversion where it is today I can say that the level of road noise is really starting to bug me. After having a golf engine put in, the back ply lined, insulated...
  13. Speakers popping

    Hopefully someone can help me out. Every time I start the engine my speakers pop quite loudly (hopefully not damaging them). I'm running two amps - one for my front components via crossovers and the other to run my sub and 6x9s in the rear. The only way I can stop the pop is to have the...
