I'm hoping the Audi Sound System will be ok. It has been great in my B8.
Did anyone have an opportunity to listen to Audi Sound System 10 Speaker in B9 A4 yet? Wanted to see if anyone has any opinions on it.
B&O is not available as a stand alone option in Canada and requires a $4,000 upgrade to Technik package. I know B&O is good, but hoping that Audi Sound System will not disappoint.
good idea!Well I really hope it's not as bad as the sound system in my B8 as it was great!!!
When I cranked up the B&O in a B9, the bass was incredible. The whole car was shaking! As for music quality, I couldn't tell the difference.
I don't tend to have the bass cranked right up.
I think we need to have a B9 meet soon and check out each other's cars.
Then we can all give a balanced view of all the different options available for the B9.
this i can agree on! very annoying!I just want to add that on top of everything, with certain sounds I get a very annoying buzzing of the interior in the car (mostly the inner plastics of the doors). Of course I can turn the bass down to half and it disappears but if I buy a premium car with a premium sound system I expect no buzzing or rattling when I listen to music...
Small and sub woofers don't really go together, they are bass speakers and nothing else. A proper sub woofer would blow off the door trim. Any speaker, even tweeters, can produce vibrations...I'm afraid that there are too many plastic elements in the door that are supposed to look good, make everything more fancy but it just can't handle the amount of base from the speakers. The two low-tone speakers in the front doors are actually small subwoofers so they do produce vibrations. You may notice that if you press the door a bit (above armrest) the buzzing goes away to certain degree.
I don't think that Audi service can do anything about it - it's just how the car is built. In that aspect it's much inferior to my old A6 (C7).

Having listened to the B&O in the new A4 yesterday, I was very underwhelmed. I played around with the settings and whilst it got better, it really doesn't compete with the B&O in my B8 A4.
I then tried to see if any of the other 'Premium' sound systems were better. Tried Bose in the A6 for the first time and was quite impressed - so much so that I've been put off the A4 and am now considering getting the A6.
