T2/T3 Dynaudio Amp Location

Anyone know where the factory amplifier is for the Dynaudio system?


I pulled the interior panels at the right rear wheel well and found only the radio tuner connected via optic cable and power.


The plastic rack over the wheel well is populated with my trailer hitch bumper module and the emergency brake module. The second rack slightly aft of the wheel well is empty.


Is there any other place the amplifier could be? Perhaps under the passenger or driver seat next to the battery?

Should be the spot, unless you don't have the Dynaudio system?

I am not sure why I’m thinking this....but aren’t the amps under the front passenger seat?

Give me an hour, I’ll drive over and help look. Am in Allentown. 🤪

According to a diagram I found they are on the driver side rear fender area. Opposite the area I posted above. http://images.wrenchead.com/Smartpag...OC/9242440.jpg


Unless this diagram is for some other Touareg looking vehicle (perhaps a minivan??)

Dynaudio amp is in the luggage compartment, rear left wheel well.

from the manual:
"The central element of the DynAudio sound system is an amplifier delivering 620 watts with surround control
(digital sound package control unit J525).
It is fitted in the luggage compartment near the left-hand wheel housing and has 10 output stages for connecting a
maximum of 12 loudspeakers. The amplifier communicates with the infotainment system via the MOST data bus."

Dynaudio Amp location

This PDF might help with any other questions.
Note: This is for the 2011 Exec but I don’t think yours will be too different.

Ok I found it tucked almost against the outer sheet metal above the left (drive side in the US) rear fender.


There are three screws (torqx + 10mm hex head). Remove theses three and the tray slide out. Getting to everything isn't the easiest. There are a bunch of the pull fasteners that make you cringe when you use the pry tool. There is a screw at the top of the cargo shade track (almost near the ceiling) it is a torx. There is also a hidden torx at the hidden coat hanger holder. There are 2 plastic hex head push rivets (use an allen wrench to unscrew them and then pull the screw part from the base of the rivet. Then the rivet from the part).


One area that hung me up is the trim around the seat belt. Don't pry at the top, pry in the middle (half way up the door pillar) the Top has hook latches that require rotating the part out of the way to unhook. But you need to undo the bottom first.


Now for the amp pinout.... anyone?

The amp is this:


7P6035466




It has a nice long connector with a latch style mechanism (like many ECUs have). It also has what I think is a CAN + power connector and then the MOST two port optic fiber connector. Remove this carefully without breaking it.

Hi,

I can't find the amp... I have a 2011 V8 TDI Exec with Dynaudio Confidence. It seems that behind the left rear panel, it's only HVAC stuff...

Or is the amp there somewhere?
