      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

I will try to put all in pictures and some comments:

New speakers: Hertz Dieci series DSK 165 (sounds perfect from original Stream MP3)
Used vibration isolation for external panels and a little for internal.
Used noise isolation for all 4 doors and some in back. For Trunk isolation used a little bit different noise isolation.

Sounds much better and less noise from outside.

Excellent job there and great piccies to boot!

Could I ask? How would you rate the Hertz DSK speakers? I'm really drawn to them after reading quite a lot of positives. Would you choose them again? Have you put an amp in to drive them or is the head unit fine?

What sound deadening material did you use? How much did you need for the doors? and was it worth doing?

I'm very close to carrying out the same job (same speakers!) on my car and thought I'd ask you thoughts :) Thanks Rukas

PS Sorry for so many questions, I just thought I'd check with a real person rather than a sales guy/ advertising blurb. Edited by RedBlueGreen

This is already second car where I have installed Hertz. And second time satisfaction. The price and quality is the best what I have found and tried in this price category.
For sound deadening I have used material from store which use it for air conditioner in buildings. Used something about 1,5 -2 m2 for 4 doors.
I paid for all material used for installation 50EUR. This is really small amount of money and quality what I get.

If we are talking about front drivers doors.
At first you have to remove dash with knobs. It is simple pushing up. Better to be warm, because plastic is very sensitive in Skoda. Under you will find screws.
Not for sure but as remember there are screw under the hight frequency speaker. Grill is removed simply taking it out with plastic remover or knife of simple screwdriver.
After that you will have to take the trim out. Trim holds only on plastic holders. (I have broken couple).

Hope this helps.
