Stereo & Electronics - Long legs
08-03-2008, 03:05 PM
I'm 6'8" and my left leg blocks alot of the sound coming out of the door speakers, when my foot is rested on the foot rest (A4). My component speakers allow me to add 3db to the tweater if I choose, would this help. Also, do the M6 cars have the foot rest?

There is more leg room in the A4's then the M6's.... I'm 6'4" and I have driven both...A4 deff has more comfort room.

I wanted a M6 but couldn't fit my size 16 4E down there with 3 pedals. Oh well, I'll try adding 3db and see how that sounds.

I have a system from CDT that is called the Upstage System. It is an extra set of imaging tweeters that brings your sound stage up from the floor boards and puts it up toward the dash area. Here's a writeup on it to give you a better idea of what it does:
At the bottom of the page it gives you some ideas for mounting. I have the best all around unit, the UP-222 availble for $79.00. Normally $159.00

Yes, the M6 has the same dead pedal.

You can easily modify the driver's seat to go back about another 1.5" for added leg room. I'm 6'4" and found that extra leg room made all the difference in driving comfort.

How did you modify the seat? Any pics

I don't have any pictures but it's pretty easy. Remove the driver's seat by unbolting the tracks and disconnecting the wiring. Turn the seat upside down and look at the front edge of the seat track. You will see that the end of the track has a lip that is bent over the leading edge so as to block movement beyond that point. Bend that lip so that it is straight with the rest of the track or just cut it off, then reinstall the seat. This will allow the seat an extra 1.5 inches of backwards travel. Don't worry about it coming out of the track without that lip to stop it because there is a similar stop at the back end of the track that will prevent it.
This only works with the power driver's seat. The passenger's seat or a manual driver's seat can only be moved by making offset mounting brackets to mount the tracks farther back.

Whitebird00, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
Not only did this help with the sound of the stereo, it also made the car much more comfortable. I have leg room now, who would of thought.
