Another beats question... for owners with beats

Does having the dsp processor give any extra control or setting in audio setup?.

Also my salesman has confirmed, all uk cars should have a cd player,,,, he thinks.

Has anyone got the Beats inside a spare wheel? I stupidly haven’t specified a spare having mistakenly read in the brochure that I was getting a weight and space saver with the Beats option. And is it possible to buy an aftermarket spare wheel from VW and have the subwoofer resited inside it? I am more concerned about sound characteristics of the subwoofer not being damped inside that rubber than having a spare or adjustable boot floor.

have a look at iwra’s post on the first page , the sub is the box on the side.... iirc either or both the polo and golf have a spare wheel sub.
Not an option on the t cross unfortunatley. May be possible to order one if them and make fit. Loom/connector may not even need to be modified.

I did look at IWRA’s photo and wondered how that shape of subwoofer would fit inside the optional spare wheel. The configurator allows me to add a spare even after selecting Beats. Which is why I was hoping for a picture including spare.
It is moot anyway as build week has now been confirmed and no further changes will be tolerated.

I believe you can have a spare, you just need to disconnect and remove the sub each time.

My dealer faffed around so much with my sale i forgot to order a spare so i intend to order from the parts dept after delivery.

Or research exactly what specs are and buy from ebay. Only has to be correct size and jack/wrench..... vw spare wheels are pretty standard.

Found this photo on a Portuguese site. Makes sense for me of IWRA’s mounting.

The Beats sub-woofer is 560 deep x 220 wide x 100 deep, connection details as photo. It's bolted down to the floor plan. There is room for the spare in the well alongside the sub-woofer, but you won't be able to drop the floor. My last car a Mazda had circular B & O sub-woofer that sat in the middle of the wheel well.
