I am thinking about removing the subwoofer when I get the EV6. I do not care about the music much anyway and rather want the boot space. Hopefully this will not trigger a bunch of error alarms...
Cabels, varoius other stoffer which always is in the car...All my cars until now have had this lower boot space and I love it, as the "normal" boot is then clean and empty without stuff flying around when driving 👍Up-plug it and see what happens before you remove it. I guess it depends on what you need the space for.
I already asked for this option, but it is not possible to order it without in the GT Line, so it will be something to fix afterwards.In many cars with an upgraded Soundsystem, the subwoofer in the trunk works as a "re amp", meaning, it has a amplifier in it more powerful than the amplifier ind the dashboard, witch means, it amplifies all the speakers in the car, so it could mean, you would not have any sound in the car at all.
You can Google this by googleling "re amp" and/or "retro fit subwoofers"
Maybe it would just be easier and more "safe" to try and order the car without the upgraded sound system?
see other thread; the amp and sub are working fine. The sub is just godawful underdesigned.Great pictures etc, I am sure it will assist others.
If it makes no difference with it plugged in or not I wonder if the amplifier is faulty as you should be able to tell the difference, question is where is this located?
How do you get the plastic cover off that's between the cargo area and the sub?I can confirm that you can just unplug the sub and nothing happens. It's for sure a fully passive woofer in a big plastic enclosure - it's even quite light, so you know there's not much magnet there. The connector has 4 wires, but I'm guessing they're just two and two for extra current handling, rather than using heaver gauge = more expensive/bulky connector.
The woofer box sits about 5 3/8" off the ground, the tub itself is 6 5/8" deep from the lip that the cover rests on, and the tub is about 9" long in the short direction (didn't think to measure the width, sorry).
I tried A/B testing with the sub unplugged and plugged in, and even with the load floor AND cover panel both open, I absolutely could not tell the difference.

There are two grab-holes about 2ft apart centered on the far-from-you edge. Lift up on those to free the front-edge snaps. Then try best you can to lift the cover out vertically, rather than tilting it up towards you. There are more alignment tabs on the back side towards the bumper. They aren't snaps, but if you tilt it towards you, they'll bend.How do you get the plastic cover off that's between the cargo area and the sub?
Both door speakers go out on my car after playing for about 5 seconds or so when i turn the car on. dealer kept it for a week and ended up ordering a new part. Amps are currently on backorder so I cant even get an eta. No door sounds mean no warning noise either for lane assist.First Post - I was supposed to pick my EV6 last Wednesday. When the dealer attempted to do the software update they came up with error message, and apparently they were directed to "replace with known good part". Now the audio system does not work period. They cannot tell me if it worked prior to the update. So I am still waiting for my car.
It took a week before my dealer could even come up with plan to get another part. I know there are supply chain issues, but it seems short sighted to sell cars that you have very limited means to repair. Anyway currently hoping to have my car in about 3 weeks, and is if a replacement amp fixes the issue, which is what the dealer is telling me should happen.
Woooooooof. Sorry, that stinks.Both door speakers go out on my car after playing for about 5 seconds or so when i turn the car on. dealer kept it for a week and ended up ordering a new part.
