VW T5 and T6 Audio Upgrades.
T5 and T6 Premium Audio Upgrade.
We have developed a great sounding audio system for the T5 and T6 with minimal impact to the vehicle interior. The system is simple but using hi-quality components and the right install methods it's extremely effective.
The VW T5 and T6 Premium Audio Upgrade consists of Audison Voce K6 front components, some of our absolute favourite speakers. These not only sound amazing but are very sensitive and handle plenty of power, making them extremely dynamic.
As always, the components are installed using a large quantity of Dynamat Extreme to improve the acoustics of the inner door as well as help reduce road noise and eliminate any vibrations. Dynamat is applied to the inside of the outer skin of the door, the inner skin of the door frame and the back of the door panel itself. This is very time consuming but as important as the speaker choice itself. In the T5 and T6 we install the new Audison tweeter flush into the top of the door panel rather than into the factory dash locations for smoother audio integration.

The system is powered by a JL Audio XD500/3 Mk2 amplifier; this amplifier is perfectly matched to the speaker system, it’s Class D so very efficient. It’s compact, powerful and the sound quality is second to none. We install the amp neatly under the passenger seat, once its set up there is no need to access it in the future.
The amplifier is wired using high grade, solid copper, power and speaker cables; this is again important in terms of performance and reliability.

We have spent some time choosing the best sub solution for the T5 and T6. Whilst the vehicle itself is very spacious there aren’t many places to situate a subwoofer without impacting on the load space. If your vehicle is fitted with individual captain chairs then we would recommend the JL W3 6” subwoofer in our trick enclosure, note the JL logo subtly set into the top of the box.
Above: The Sub-Bass is provided by a down-firing JL Audio 6W3 subwoofer, we then fabricate a custom top panel with the JL logo inset to make the installation unique.
If you VW is equipped with the captain chairs as above, then the fully fitted system cost is £1699. This includes the trim panel with the JL logo.
If the vehicle is equipped with the bench seat we are able to hide the subwoofer under the seat and vent it into the cabin area so the subwoofer is completely hidden, the total fitted cost of this system is £1599.
A step up from the T5 and T6 Premium Audio Upgrade would be the introduction of a digital processor, for this we use the Audison BIT 10 D, this is a truly amazing piece of electronics. It allows us to fully tune the system to the vehicle and time-align the sound to create an unbelievable sound stage with breathtaking imaging capabilities; instruments and vocals are projected up and forwards with pinpoint accuracy, this is an effect that has to be heard to be believed.
We have several demo cars, two of which are equipped with Audison BIT processors allowing for the demonstration of this incredible piece of equipment. The additional cost of the processor is £499 fitted, we call this our “Plus” option.
We also offer Sat-Nav solutions for the T5 and T6 - see the “Navigation Solutions” Section of our web site for further details.
We also offer Lazer auxiliary full beam lighting for the T5, this solution incorporates a set of Lazer ST4 hi-power LED spotlights mounted in a stainless steel grill, please contact us for further details.
The audio systems take a little over a day to complete and tune, we have several courtesy cars available for your convenience.
All of our audio upgrades include a full three-year warranty, terms and conditions apply.
