    Yeah, Bose is pretty hopeless especially in the A3. And to retrofit one would be more complicated than installing an entire aftermarket system as all the wiring is different, it uses a 4ch amp, seperate sub & amp and all the speakers would have to be changed.
    Ideally go aftermarket, but if you stick to the Concert then just by adding a sub you can get pretty good results far better than the Bose setup. The sub is the key as even with the Bose setup the OEM sub is housed in a plastic box which gives you that signature woolly/muddy bass that we all aspire to.
    I do a custom stealth sub enclosure using a JL Audio sub which replaces the OEM unit and the transformation is pretty outstanding if I do say so myself.

    How much is one of your custom subs etc to fit a b5 s4 with standard concert. How difficult is is to fit, I guess you need an amp ?. Got any pics of an install on a b5 ?

    A3/S3 only I'm afraid, you can get stealth sub enclosures for the B5 from Auto Acoustics. The only reason I did the A3 was that the exisiting sub was abysmal (Bose & non Bose) and no one did an off the shelf unit.
