View Full Version : Cupra ICE
I've got a Ibiza 20VT and am aware that its a total disaster when it comes to adding your own ICE. Just now I've had a custom made parcel shelf kitted out with a set of Kenwood HQ 7x10's. Doesn't sound too shabby but I still want to fit my amp and subs. Has any of you got sounds in your Ibiza's. The only way I can see getting round it is running the amp throught the rear speakers and connecting the remote wire through ignition. Is this how you got round it. Any advice will be appreciated.
FLAPPER, Help this man out.
Flapper will sort you Malky
yeah unfortunately you may be suck with the low level input option :( unless you use an RCA converter , as for remote , check out on the site the beeza radio guide , and the bottom of the 3 sockets is for all the power etc , i think its the TOP right as you look at it PIN 7 is a remote wire , SAUL is around somewhere he's bang in the middle of doing his ill ask him to post up any help
try this if it helps http://www.seatcupra.net/bezrad.shtm
Cheers for that. I'll give it a go. Just a shame that its not possible to fit another head unit. Would make it a hell of a lot easier.
ALPINE do a head only unit that fits too the bottom of the dash if it helps , and there is a spanish company offering a dash facia to convert to STD DIN units , though i cant seem to get through to em :(:(:(:(
Well, im here nursing sore fingers.
Ive bought some Kenny Dual Mags (6.5")
You need to remove the door trim (get the door trim tool from halfords) be careful, less haste more speed etc.
3 CLips on the bottom, 2 on the left, and 3 on the right.
and dont forget to remove the 2 screws.
When this is off u will laugh, swear and cry at the cr*p in front of u.
Disconnect the wiring to the mid and undo the 3 screws, take off the basket/bucket with the speaker in and marvel at its crapness.
Now u need something to mount the new speakers in.
I drew round the old basket onto some mdf and cut out a crude bracket which i can screw into the 3 pre tapped holes that held the basket originally.
And thats as far as i got, allow yourself a full day for the whole job as you will be sanding/filing and fiddlin all day to get em in.
Im finishing them this week, but im also goin to run some RCA convertors and suppressors to try (?) and run an amp for my new speakers and a sub.
Will let u know, i'll try and get some pics to help aswell.
Flapper, are th tweeters in the Ibiza moulded into that plastic on the back of the door mirror, cos i cant seem to shift em.
Wish me luck all
Good Luck mate. That sounds like you'll have your work cut out. I've got a set of Dual Mags that I took out my Pug when I traded it in and haven't even looked behind the grilles of my Ibiza to see if they'll fit.
Thanks for the info about the Alpine head unit Flapper. That might be worth finding out about. Do you know how it gets wired up?
as far as i could see , it was a seperate base unit hidden under the dash wired independently with a small BUS lead to the back of just a face , not much bigger than a standard pop off face . as for fitting , could be a bit of a sparky job , not too bd to be honest , just standard stuff , in non standard holes , not cheap ill bet though
I think you are referring to my car ?
I will put some pics up soon .
fire the pic on to me mate. Cheers
and me please email@example.com

could well be my man , ive only seen one and it was in our workshop, neat job from what i saw :) muocho dosho ££ ????
If your interested in the radio mod for the Ibiza / Cordoba thats been floating about then check this....
Might be worth trying to get in contact with kpsport?
They also sell white dial kits for new and the older style SEATs. Only in KPH tho.
The pic that I sent 2 Malky was the ad 4 the spanish radio face.
have you rang them in spain? or can someone over here get it done?
I know its not cheap, but looks good!
Martyn got there b4 me!! :)
I've seen the site b4.
If you are going to get in touch with kpsport, I would be intrested in the radio mod, only thing is, does anyone know anyone thats had it done? How good a job do they do? how long?
I don't fully understand the pictures of the stereo mod! does anyone else understand how this mod actually works? Please excuse my stupidity!
For all those interested.
I have managed to change the front speakers on the NewShape
With a lot of help From Zboyd and his wire toothed bro in law tricky. :cheers:
As long as you buy an interior removal tool and follow the guides, you cant go far wrong.
I would strongly reccomend the speaker adaptors that flapper has posted about in anopther topic.
If you try to fit the apeakers without these, beware of clearance as the window comes straight down behind the mounting position.
I opted for Kenny Dual Mags (KFC-PSR70P) which fitted straight into the adaptors no probs.
The tweeters were mounted next to the grille on the back of the door mirrors.
Sound is wel improved, altho the std head unit, distorts the signal over 30.
Will be improved soon when my amps and sub arrive.
Once again thanks to Zboyd and tricky.
Pics to follow soon.
No problem Saul, it was fun to spend the afternoon at Saul's Autos ;)
