I am upgrading to the RNS-E, and have the terrible sounding Bose symphony 1. I think the rating is 200W on my radio. I also own a Touareg, and it is rated at 350W. It sounds AMAZING. How does the RNS-E compare to the Symphony? Should I disconnect the Bose system altogether? Do I need another amp?

A lot of questions :D

If you have BOSE then all 4 speaker channels (FL, FR, RL, RR) are amplified using the BOSE amplifier. Changing from Symphony to RNS-E does not change that.

Use the existing BOSE amplifier.

The new BOSE amp is rated at 350W. Is it possible to replace my current amp with that one? it seems like a more expensive alternative than aftermarket units though.

The Bose amp has a build-in equalizer programmed for a certain model only. A B6 amp won't sound acceptable in a B5 or any other model.
