How respectively where get the Sound Booster installed?
The sound generator is installed at the underbody of the car. If there isn't enough space, it can be installed inside the spare wheel recess. The Modules are assembled in the inside and get connected.

The spheric sound generator has a perimeter about 64 cm, a diameter of around 20 cm and a height of ca. 16 cm.
Will the sound generator get installed into the exhaust?
No, the Sound Booster is not integrated into the exhaust. This makes the Active Sound System easy to remove again.
Am I able to install the Sound Booster by myself or do I need to visit a specialist workshop?
This depends on the kit you want to install. The vehicle specific kit can be installed by you. The universal kit needs to be welded, so it might be secure to let it be installed by a specialist workshop.

I retrofitted the universal kit on my Audi and do not have any sound now. Why?
If you installed the system on a Audi A8 4H, A6 4G, A7 4G you have to encode this:
Address 09 Byte 11: Set Bit 6 to 1.
After successful encoding the Sound Boost while motor starting in dynamic mode is activated or can be activated in the individual mode, if the settings for Motor/Gear and motor sound are set to dynamic.
The retrofit kit by Audi for the A4/A5 is not getting louder with the KUFATEC module. Why?

We can cancel the reduction. Get the following update (complete update) in our shop and send in the control unit to us.

Is there a TÜV (Technical Supervisory Association) assessment for the registration?
No, but we know several customers, which got an entry via individual acceptance.
Are there any problems at my next TÜV (Technical Supervisory Association) date, when the system is installed?
The use of a Sound Booster is not permitted without an entry in the vehicle documents in the area of the Road Traffic Licensing Regulation (German StVZO). The noise emission of the vehicle is increased after retrofitting the system. The regulations of the StVZO must be observed. It is therefore recommended to ask for a specific entry option at the relevant TÜV (Technical Supervisory Association) / DEKRA (another German technical inspection agency) office before retrofitting. Outside of Germany, please observe the applicable laws for vehicle registration in your country.
