mercedes audio systems

i work at an audio shop and in last few weeks i ve seen about 5-10 mercedeses here in the shop mostly for audio.

and there were no identical sound systems on any 2 of them.

can someone help me identify the audio systems on different year model cars?

and explain what the acronyms mean.

That's quite a big task. Mercedes radios and tape decks were originally Becker and Blaupunkt built; in the late 1980's they also used Alpine built decks and then they jumped onto the Bose amplified speaker bandwagon as optional equipment in the 90's.

The integrated sat nav COMAND system is Bosch/Blaupunkt.

people that can afford a mercedes must be listening to self improvement audio tapes. or books on tape because they spend their whole time improving themselves and driving to important meetings. thats why you have a tape player.
