    // Audi TT Bose replacement //

    Hello,
    I have a Bose sound system on my 2002 Audi TT and would like to change the radio consol along with the amp with a unit that supports mp3 / USB / ipod and AUX.

    My question is, if I change the consol and amp and keep the speakers will I lose the sound quality and distribution of my current Bose system? The sound quality will be determined by the new sound system?

    Also, will the bose speakers work well with say an Alpine or Pioneer system or do I have to also change the speakers / sub-woofer?

    Thanks in advance.

    you might be better off asking that on a vehicle specific forum that is more familiar with your car.

    Would you need to change the Bose amp as well, or is it built into the head unit of the car? If you have access to the Bose amp, then check to see what kind of input it takes. If its normal RCA inputs, then keep the Bose amp, and interface the new unit straight into that.

    If its proprietary (It might very well be, I think the Mazda Bose units were all wierd proprietary interfaces), then yes, you might have to remove the amp, but that would definitely be a case of speaking to someone who is more familiar with the car.

    i can guarantee that the amp does not have rca-style inputs. but it might accept a low-level input signal, and is capable of running with aftermarket radios/carpc's, but there isn't many here that can help check that..

    The dash stereo wiring should connect to the amp. If you decide to keep the amp then you would need to get a harness adapter, or cut into your wiring. If you swap the amp, you'll need to tap into the factory speaker wiring anyway. Something to consider.

    Start by finding wiring diagrams and see if Metra makes a harness adapter for your vehicle.

    It is not built into the head unit, they are separate. The amp (and the head unit) do not take RCA inputs of any kind.
