Just had my buddy put in the replacement sub in place of the factory B&O sub. He put in a Kicker 10" and it sounds awesome. Also had him dynamat the rear deck and it helps alot with any rattling of the rear deck. I was going to go with the JL audio 10"w1, but the kicker was enough for what i was doing without going with a separate amp. Also put a thin piece of rubber along the rear brake/stoplight to stop any vibrations from the sub. Found out that it was hitting the rear window when the bass hit.

How much further does the magnet stick down compared to the B&O sub?
One of the reasons I order the A5 was because it had enough trunk space for 2 golf bags and pull carts. I may need to go with a Neo magneted speaker to cut down on size.

it comes down about 6-7 inches...I put two golf bags back there also..could fit a pull cart, havent tried it yet. Doesn't really get in the way of anything.If anything you can put down the rear seats, that would definitely fit everything you have.

I found some posts on audiworld.com about how to remove the sub...i will try and find it again and post the link for you here. Somebody on there posted a pdf. file to download and i just printed it off and followed instructions. It is fairly easy, just have to be careful not to break and plastics or tabs.

Listened to my S5 and another S5, both with B&O and using the same CD: wow, what a difference, in the other car the sound was really good (similar as the Bose setup in older Audis)! This was clear proof that the subwoofer and/or amplifier is the problem (in many cars?) and my dealer ordered replacement parts. Let's wait and see, uh, hear if this is really the solution and a new (type/brand of) sub is not needed.

Would appreciate this link if you can find it.

Thanks, that's great info.

Your Kicker sub, is it made for infinite baffle (free-air)? Or just a regular sub that you're running without the box? And what impedence do you have it wired for? 2-4-8 ohm?

Would the JL AUDIO 13W6V2 require a seperate amp to power it or would the B&O amp be sufficient. I am getting this sub at a very good price and after reading reviews on it, seems like the perfect sub for S5.

Please Advise..Thanks
