    you wont be able to replace it with any sub as it is in a very small enclosure... i would recommend a direct replacement part or going for something like the Andy Mac sub

    Is it possible to replace standard Blaupunkt sub woofer with Bose sub woofer in A3/S3 8P? Is connector the same? Amplifier is also in the box? I'm satisfied with sound, especially after fitting RSN-e, just that sub woofer is not up to job, it makes annoying noises, I dampened it somehow but still it's **** compared to the rest of the system.

    You can buy your own enclosures of ebay for around £80 similar to Andy's and do your own system if you want...
    However i will be keeping an eye on this as im in the same situation

    Wouldn't bother, the bose one is still ****, sounds ok inside but crackles and farts from listening outside.

    I'm sure it's a 6.5" sub. My blaupunkt one is. I ended up sacking it off totally and fitting a full system in and wiring the rear speakers directly to the head unit
