    2007 A3 with Concert III

    Hi - some advice if anyone has a spare 5mins.

    I will be purhcasing a car with the above stereo system - no Bose.

    The no Bose bit pains me, having had two previous A3s with the Bose system. However, my plans are to upgrade the system -

    1) How far can I go with the Concert III stock unit - i'd like to improve the speakers and bass without havign to change the stock headunit to maintain the original look of the car.

    2) Re. the above, I want to install an RNS-E system, how would this affect being able to upgrade the speakers and bass.

    Please treat me with kid gloves I am a novice-!!

    Thanks in advance

    The Concert III has front and rear pre-outs so you can pretty much do anything you want. The only limitation is it only has an internal amp for the front speakers, and doesn't have a non fading sub pre-out, so no independent control of a sub.

    Andy, thanks - but in laymans terms........

    i.e. "pre-outs"

    Would I be able to replicate or surpass the clarity and bass of the Bose system and retain the Cocert III head unit?

    Sorry I'm struggling with "clarity and bass of the Bose system", isn't that a contradiction in terms?
    Yes of course you can if you're aiming that low!
