Hi, i was wondering if it´s possible to buy a bose system for my audi that doesn´t have bose installed originally. Does the speakers fit, and the cover for them (the "grill" that covers the speakers.) Thanks in advance for answers.
A 2 or 4 channel line level converter will allow the OP to run aftermarket amps with the factory head unit, using the speaker cables
Rear door speakers IMO are a waste of time as they muddle the sound so never bothered with them in previous installs I had in my cars.
Good point, I always tended to default to aftermarket HU to get BT streaming and handsfree built-in, so never had to look at the converter.
I am a fan of having the speakers in the back though. Mostly for the benefit of passengers, but also like the extra sound stage flexibility it allows.
All this ICE talk is getting me thinking about doing away with my existing Bose speakers and replacing them with the Focal components I bought a while back with the intention of putting them into the old A4. Still have AndyMac's MDF speaker door adapters from before he passed away, which fit 8P rather well (he made awesome kits for 8L). All I really need is a direct replacement for the stock Sub to give myself a new project.
