      I just purchased a used 2010 VW CC Luxury. It has the standard 8 speaker stereo system. Is there a kit that can upgrade to the Dynaudio 10 amplified speaker audio system? I am pretty good at DIY installs, but would need the parts and a good set of instructions. Can anyone comment?

      The question is not how to retrofit the Dynaudio sound system, but why? You will have a much easier installation, less cost, and a much better sound system customizable to your liking by choosing specific aftermarket speakers, amps and processors (with the right OEM connectors and parts you don't even have to cut a single OEM wire) than rewiring your car with OEM harnesses and adding the OEM amp and speakers.

      Thanks M3. Yup I am coming to that same conclusion. My original thinking was that I do not want to cut into the existing wiring hareness. Assumed that just maybe the existing harness would be "Dynaudio Ready". Not the case as I am finding out.

      Do you have any specific recco's on after market upgrades that have worked on a CC? Just trying to figure out best approaches.

      There's enough space under the driver's seat for an Alpine PDX or a JL Audio XD amp that can power all your speakers. And there is an aftermarket Quadralock harness (the main audio connector in the back of your radio) that can be modified to interface with the OEM wiring so no OEM wires needs to be cut to add the amps and/or processors.

      For speakers, thare are plenty of Rainbow, Morel or Focal component speakers that can fit depending on your budget.
