Bose Wire Removal

I've read few posts about disconnecting the bose wire from the back of the headunit but wasnt sure of the outcome. I thought id give it a go this morning and all i can say is the difference is brilliant! The system is actually loud and punchy now. The bass/mid and treble adjusters work perfectly also. Took me all of 10 minutes to remove the unit and disconnect the cable and secure it. Id recommend this to anyone whos after a better sounding bose system.

It tells the bose amp to run with a set EQ and this being very flat and not punchy. Cutting it removes the restrictions and lets the amp'd speakers and sub free or as it should be. It genuinly sounds alot different.

This doesn't work on all OEM head units. On my old version Concert head unit cutting the Bose wire made no difference.

Using Vag-Com to disable Bose mode did the trick though. This seems to be the case on many head units that have the Bose pin labeled as 'Gala' instead of Bose.
