    willnabby RS-one day soon!!

    I have a 2006 A3 8p with the standard single din concert 2 HU with Bose and I am trying to buy the correct SOT lead to fit a parrot hands free kit, connects2 do two for A3's with Bose, one or a half amplified system (CTTAU001) the other for a fully amplified system (CTTAU002), how do I found out which amplification mine is?

    thanks in advance for any help.

    The way I did it was pulling the head out and look for the 2 8 pin iOS plugs one will have different size cables which is the power side, the other 8 pin one is your speakers, if the inner 4 pins have wires it's rear amped which was most common when I was doing them, if the plug empty or not there its fully amped.

    All Bose systems are fully amplified, there is no such thing as a Bose half amplified system on an Audi.
    The Bose system won't have the brown ISO plug for the front speakers
    A lot of these aftermarket adapter vendors incorrectly refer to the stock non Bose system (rear amped) as Bose half amped
