    B5 S4 head unit

    So Iím a fairly new owner here. Iíve searched the forum with no luck on this.
    So Iím ready to replace my Audi symphony unit to a nice screen thatís compatible with my iPhone. I stopped at a local shop for advice and options, and they told me this. ď in order to install any new head unit, I have to replace the bose amp, and all speakers.Ē
    That sounds crazy to me. Is this guy full of shit and trying to drum up sales?
    What have you guys done in your B5ís?
    I usually listen to my phone while driving, and I hate wearing my headphones! Lol
    Thanks in advance

    You should post this in the sticky thread at the top of the forum page. Include the model year and any pertinent information about your current setup. Christian at Enfig Stereo can help you with any specific questions about your vehicle. If your head unit includes a nav system then I'm not sure what you can use. I have a 2014 B8.5 A4 and replaced my head unit with the Alpine X701D-A4, which is made specifically for my car and integrates with the rest of the car's systems. I had the Audi Concert system so it didn't have navigation.

    The guy that said you need to replace the Bose amp and speakers wasn't bullshitting you. Audis don't lend themselves to simple upgrades with the sound systems since so many of the car's features are controlled via the head unit.

    FYI - Last time I heard, driving with headphones is illegal so watch yourself.

    Thanks Captain!

    I just updated the site so all you have to do is insert the radio you are installing and it tells you all the parts needed. Let me know if you have any question.
