    [h=2]hello all, [/h]

    I have read a lot of threads regarding the installation of parrots, but I'm getting more and more confused.

    I have a 2006 A3 2.0T Q S-line. It has a double din symphony 2, its a 6 disc changer as well, all the speakers are Bose...but there is no sub/amp in the boot? is this normal, and my question is , if i fit a Parrot MK 9100 will i need any other cables/mods to get it working through the Bose side of things as I've read about it using just the parrot amp and not the audi/bose stuff when streaming music...

    sorry if this doesn't make sense, any help would be appreciated.

    thanks ben​

    It must have an amp, all Audi HU's have either a 2 channel amp (non bose) or 4 channel for BOSE. It's just built into the sub in an A3.

    It's hidden, no access compartments. Just checked, the A3 non BOSE it's in the SUB, but the BOSE does have a seperate BOSE amp.

    Yes you probably will... I had a Parrot MK9200i fitted to my A3 and without the additional lead (a matchmute from Autoleads - around £60) you will only get the parrot through the front two speakers and it wont mute the bose speakers and sub in the rear of the car...
    Fine at first i thought... but after a while it really annoyed me! I bought the matchmute connection loom and it worked a treat. Bit of a job to install but worth it... my A3 has now gone unfortunately, so i have this loom as spare if ur interested?? ;-)
