    I've got the standard audi speaker system. If I manage to get my hands on some genuine B&O v8 speakers will it be a straight swap? Do I need rewiring / new amp?

    To make proper use you would need the amp etc as it produces the power

    Does anyone know the audi product codes for B & O system and audi SS? There should be a sticker in the manual of the car with codes in it?
    Would anyone be able to take a look in their manual and see what codes they have please?

    I have the ASS, and the Sub-Woofer has "D&M Premium Sound Solutions" moulded into the plastic housing.

    Further googling reveals:

    D+M Premium Sound Solutions


    If I were a betting man, I would say that D&M have supplied and tuned the ASS in the A3 8V. I think it outperforms the Bose system in the A3 8P in many ways.

    According to ETKA the codes are: 9VD = ASS and 9VS = B+O. I don't have either so I cannot check if they are listed in the Service Manual but not all codes are listed.

    I think ASS is very good, but it seems to be lacking slightly in the treble department.

    I wonder how easy it is to replace the tweeters.
