it's quite a long read...but it really is a great read for anyone who already knows BOSE blows and hopefully will open the eyes of many people who actually think bose makes a good product

what the hell are you guys talking about? My dad's Cayenne has a Bose system, which totally kicks .! Compared to a Bang & Olufsen in a A8 we tried out (don't worry, his company rents the cars for him ;)), the Bose had WAY better sound! I don't see why people would be talking . about a company that makes great products and probably haven't even used one of them!

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

you obviously didn't read the article. It makes some very good points about their in store demo's

what the hell are you guys talking about? My dad's Cayenne has a Bose system, which totally kicks .! Compared to a Bang & Olufsen in a A8 we tried out (don't worry, his company rents the cars for him ;)), the Bose had WAY better sound!

I find it INCREDIBLY hard to believe that the Bose system sounds better than the B&O system in the Audi which has been getting rave reviews by everyone in the audio industry who has reviewed it. But you must be an audio engineer who obviously knows better :rolleyes:

http://www.autoexpre...15/audi_a8.html

so after reading all those links (which i'm sure you did) please tell me again that the bose was better

And as far as me not using bose products. I used to sell them. Wanna know what i learned?

hei man, I didn't say the Bang system was bad, far from that! But I found that the Bose sounded better. Maybe my ears are screwed, call me retarded, but thats my opinion!

sadly your ears may in fact be screwed or you actually don't know what "good sound" sounds like.

That B&O system (like the mark levinson system from lexus) is getting rave reviews (as all of those links have told you)

Bose sounds better than what, farting? :lol: Bose systems used in cars are never actually made by them, they have a look at the basic system and recommend some changes, that's about it.
