Ok here we go!! I have recently brought a new Audi A4 sport and the first thing I have to do is upgrade the sound system, it is shocking. I am by no means an expert when it comes to car sound systems so I thought I better seek some help. I have done some research, and I have read some of the recommended audio sites for advice. However I am still unsure and I thought I would ask some experts, so here I am.
Ok let me tell you what I am after. The first thing I need is a head unit. I am after one that is good quality but at the same time it must look the business. I appreciate that some of the old alpine units are excellent but I find them too boring and ugly. I was checking out some of the photos you guys uploaded and azbass unit looked awesome. You get the idea. (Oh and I want it to play mp3 cds, I am not bothered about dvd or sat nav)
I have to change the speakers. Here is my first dilemma, do a fork out and buy both front and rear speakers, or do I just go for one or the other. Looking at my car I would prefer just to change the front speakers as it would be easier, plus in my audi, correct me if I am wrong it looks like there is just one big central rear speaker in the parcel shelf. Will I still get good quality sound if I only change the front speakers? (Not bothered about passengers in the back)
I do not want a sub. Is it worth me buying an amp? Some head units do have a built in amp, I guess it depends on whether it is powerful enough to power the new speakers?
Ok sorry for the long post but if you could help me it would be appreciated. So I am after some recommendations on:
1) Head Unit
2) Front Speakers
3) Amp and rear speakers if required?
Looking to spend around £300 ($600) but I would rather pay that bit extra if required.
