By the wat the RF amp does have high level input

it has a plug that you put a head into that ends with 2 rcs plugs. If you want low level, plug in rca's, if you want high level, cut the ends off and wire into speaker wire. There is a switch to set it to low or hi level input.

if you are using high level input, it also has auto on, so you dont have to run a remote wire

Just used this DIY to install the same amp in the same location and tapping behind the stereo. Just a warning to others, the wire for REAR LEFT + was a different color for me (2010 GTI) thankfully I had this post and the wiring diagram pulled up on my Iphone during install.

Also I have a 6SP manual and ended up having to remove the battery to pass my power wire through the firewall, I used one of the nipples in the same grommet I had used for my AWE boost gauge. Overall this DIY was super helpful thanks!

Doing this tomorrow and I'm a 2010 6mt also; was the wiring diagram on your iphone correct?
If so, what was the correct color combo for rear left +?

Pretty sure all negative wires are brown or brown w/ color stripe. So the positive would be the other wire. I think mine (+) was Red w/blue stripe.

For my amp under the driver's seat, I'll order the same foam box as the one used for the bluetooth module under the passenger driver's seat.

It fits perfect even if it's not under the same side's seat.

anyone have issues with this setup and rattling under the car? I'm getting a metal rattle right over my muffler in the back when the sub pounds. I have not looked yet, but I'm assuming a heat shield is hiding under there and needs tightening or to be bent away from something making it rattle. Anyone else have this issue?

I'm also getting the same rattle so anyone with a solution on how to solve this. At first I tnought it was the number plate holder then I put some double sided tape to isolate it from the body, but now the rattle is still there...
