    2006 Audi A4 Install Help

    Hello everyone.

    I have a 2006 Audi A4 without Bose and without Nav. I wanted to go about changing my head unit first because the stock unit is awful. I have heard that wiring these cars is a PITA so I have a few questions.

    1. How easy will it be to bypass my stock amp?
    2. I also want to retain my Sirius Sat radio. I know I will have to buy an aftermarket tuner that goes with the HU I choose. My question is whether or not I can use my stock Sat Antenna. I don't want to add a second antenna because I already have one in my stock sharkfin. Basically I want to know if the stock antenna wiring will fit an aftermarket tuner.
    3. I plan on eventually adding a 4 channel amp to the system and running my front speakers off that and a sub off the rear channels. I will run the stock speakers or replacement coax in the rear off the HU amp. Is there a decent component set that I can get for the front doors that will sound ok running off just a HU until I can get around to amping the system?

    Thanks again!

    i would suggest a jl audio cleansweep, mtx req5 or some kind of processor.
    maybe that new jbl audio ms-8 that just came out..

    i added a processor in my lexus, so that i wouldnt have to take out the factory head unit (though i wish i could just do that, but its too complicated) and it sounds great.

    unless you want to completely get a new head unit, then look into dash kits for your car. metra usually has just about any car.

    a sound processor would just take signal through your factory amp or speakers and send it out via rcas to the aftermarket amps taht you would run your speakers off of.
