Hello there, i Have a 54 plate A3 sport with the horrible Bose system in it. It still has the original concert radio/cd unit in, which I’m looking to upgrade to an aftermarket head unit. Here’s where I’m suffering a little... Currently you can only really hear anything out of the speakers by the windscreen - the front and rear door ones work but they are beyond pathetic. This makes the whole sound of the radio horrendous to listen to, other than talking. Music just sounds... *****. I don’t know much about wiring/speakers etc, so I took it to an audio shop near me today to ask for advice/quote. Now he said that the problem is basically the Bose system amp(?) being a terrible set up. However completely ripping out the Bose system and installing a decent head unit, speakers etc is a big **** job and looking at around £1000 with fitting. Not really worthwhile I’m sure you’ll agree. His cheaper alternative would be to put a small sub in the boot to give bass which would atleast help with giving a more suitable ‘all round’ sound. But again, looking at the cost of the HU, sub, fitting etc (including the steering wheel kit) it’s still a rather meaty £450ish. Ouch. Anyone else been in this boat? Are there alternatives that are financially suitable/worthwhile? Would a new HU help manipulate the sound etc? E I really don’t want to have to put up with the terrible sound, but also can’t really justify/afford over £400 right now. If anyone can help I will love you forever! Thanks.
