I'm about to order my new company car, an Audi S3 5dr, and am in the process of deciding what options to go for. I'm hoping you guys could give me some advice.
It seems that many of you are talking about replacing the Bose sound system. Therefore am I correct in assuming that it does not improve the sound quality significantly over the standard speakers. Or is it an improvment and worth buying, as my retrofit options are pretty limited as it is a lease hire car.
Its a lease car so any modifications that will require permanent changes are out of the question (eg custom sub enclosures unless they can be removed at a later date without damage to the car, or they sont take up any room in the boot).
If I dont get the Bose system, what are my options?
Does the standard setup have an external amp that I could use some aftermarket speakers with?
Can I swap out the speakers for aftermarket ones (particularly the sub) if I do choose the Bose system, or will any speaker changes make the Bose amp redundant. I've seen Andys sub enclosure and that seems like a brilliant solution, but can a new sub be run from the Bose amp?
Sorry for the list of questions but I'm a little confused about the options to improve the sound as it seems from reading 12 + pages of the fiorums here that the standard set up has some strange wiring particularly for the sub and rears, whilst the Bose uses lower voltages.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
