upgrade to the 2015 LUX speakers/audio

Hi,
I just purchased a 2015 TDI. Beautiful SUV. I smile every time I am behind the wheels. My only issue is the audio system is not that great compared to the executive model.
Has anybody tried upgrading the audio system without compromising the rest of the system like navigation etc.

Hi,
I think you should reference the thread: To Those Looking For A Plug & Play Audio Upgrade (Base Audio Only).

To activates the dynaudio profile for non dynaudio sound systems, try this.

1. Select the " 56 - Radio" unit.
2. Enter the section " 07 - Encoding " and press " Long encoding "
3. Byte 4 - replace the value 01 with the value 00
4. Save and exit

I did the recode on my 2016 and very impressed with the change in sound quality!

Do the Vagcom mod. If still not happy look at this thread:

I did the PP62 and could not be happier. It sounds better then the Dynaudio in the Exec.

Wow, I'm not sure how I've never come across this before, but yes indeed a huge improvement! My biggest complaint about my 2013 was the poor sound quality, and this more than makes me happy. no need for additional hardware here. I'm not an audiophile by any means but I do appreciate good quality sound, and this is so much better than stock settings. I had been planning to eventually buy one of those $1000 Match Processors, but not anymore.

Amen i couldnt believe the difference...the stock system was clearly held back on purpose, as some of us feel to up sell dynaudio. I was going to spend big money for a match as well so glad i dont need to. The stock speakers have built in resistors so we dont need to worry that this effects the tweeters.

Really i love the stereo now, i may add a low power sub just to add a bit more bass, ive always had a good stereo but i think just a bit more bass would finish it off

For those that did the VAGCOM and have the PP52/62, what how was the improvement from the VAGCOM fix to the PP52/62?

The vagcom change really opens up the possibilities with the dsp (I have a 52). The bass was not adequate and mid was held back as well prior to the change. I had been thinking I’d wasted my money on the dsp / cable/ install until opting for the final step and investing in the vagcom. This was expensive but the sound is better than the Dynaudio in my ‘12 Touareg (which I never thought much of). I haven’t tried the vagcom alone since the dsp was already installed but will suggest that alteration first to a friend who also has a new ‘16. We’ll see if he chooses to go the dsp route.
