    I've had mine fitted for over a month and I'm loving it. Just a couple of questions:

    On Dynamic/Individual (set up as dynamic) it sounds exactly the same.

    However, on starting up it 'pops' going through the entire rev-range if it's in dynamic but it doesn't do this in individual.

    1. Is there any way to get it to behave like dynamic? It sounds incredible on start up, would love to have the same effect on individual.

    2. Has anyone hooked it up to a computer and played around with the sounds/settings?

    Thanks guys

    I bought mine for £210 from Germany when the 20%off ebay promo was running. Will give you a nudge next time I see it.

    Does the box have to be connected to the car to start making profiles as my PC is detecting it but not in the app?

    I've ready through it but I've missed any details of it being connected to the car to detect the box?

    What car have you got it fitted to? I'm after the sound booster kit for my 2.0TDI.

    I've had one fitted for a while now, didn't know it did it differently in dynamic mode on startup? I'll give it a try later! lol

    I so want one but can't justify the outlay at the moment. If anyone is selling one please let me know

    Worth it just for the roar on startup. Smile - every single time.

    What did you think to it? :racer:

    You download software from kufatecs site and follow the instructions. Been meaning to do it for ages!

    I bought a new one a few months ago with the remote to switch between 6 different preset sounds.

    I love it, especially the cold start on start up in dynamic, makes me smile everytime. It makes my wife cringe

    I have mine set on number 4 as 5/6 are just to loud for day in day out driving.

    I've never had pops or bangs thou, just cold start sound on start up which lasts about 5 seconds then goes into preset sound level

    I have drive set to dynamic and exhaust sound set to dynamic. How do you get more sounds? Do I plug my kufatec sound module into my computer and download different sounds? Will it over right my standard preloaded settings??

    Hi all, can I ask, are these purely a sound generator internal to the car? Or is there some form of speaker system, exhaust mod externally also? Can't really find any info online

    These sound booster chip boxes are used to amplify the existing sound which comes from a speaker system (Sound generator) attached to the back box(es) externally on the exhaust.The original system is standard to the 3.0 BiTDI engines,Sq5/SQ7 & Maserati Ghibli,if your car doesn’t already have the sound generator from factory this box is useless.

    This is the system which comes factory installed but you can retrofit it

    Had mine a few days now.
    The default profiles, while good really need to be adapted to my Bitdi. The rpm translation isn’t setup correctly for a 5000 rpm redline.
    I have customised profile 2 to sound like a true V8, with proper rev matching, it sounds a tad more realistic.
    Enjoying it so far.
    If anyone wants to try my custom profile2, send me a message.

    Hi all.
    I’m looking at joining the BiTDi club in the next month or two and was wondering if this system was on the Allroad version?
    Many thanks.

    Hi there.
    It sure is.
    You can upgrade the sound module to Kufatec and get a louder customisable sound.
