Nope - this site isn't a sales site, it's just a tech advice site on how to fix problems. Your best bet for buying a speaker would be eBay, a salvage yard like www.shokan.com, or the classifieds sections on www.audiforums.com or www.audizine.com.

So, I dealt with this problem on my own. It would have cost me over $350 to change a stinking bose speaker in my A4, instead, it cost my $62.50 and a saturday afternoon.

Here were my symptoms:
On really cold mornings or days, my passenger side front door speaker would crackle, not exactly blown per se, but it was really annoying, making me adjust my balance 100% to the right side. But, when it warmed up a little later in the day, the crackling would go away. I'm guessing this had something to do with expansion and contraction due to heat, or lack thereof.

Here's what I did:
I called around and found out that you can buy replacement speakers from the audi parts shop at your local dealer... they said it would cost $178.00 for one speaker! I understand it's Bose, but come on, it went defective on me. So, just like you said, I checked ebay. I was able to get, not one, but two used replacement speakers for 60.00. But I was concerned about dismantling my door panel. I've been in a lot of cars where the interiors rattles because of custom or even professional installation jobs. I didn't want to lose my wonderfully noise free interior in my car. I figured I need some directions: I checked the internet and found this site: carstereoremoval.com. What do you know? They give you simple step by step instruction on how to remove a door panel on a 2001 A4. It cost me $2.50 through paypal. So total, (besides the torque wrench), 60.00 + 2.50 = 62.50 vs. 350.00. That's a lot of beer money! Hope this helps someone else out.

Be forewarned: To replace the bose speaker you need a T20 torque wrench. I didn't have this and was caught having o drive to home depot without a door panel.

I have an 01 audi a4, and i wanted to change the rear speakers. i remove the right one and its simple, two wires, but when i remove the left rear speaker there's 8 wires and was wondering if 2 of the wires...


as long as it is audio out then you cant go wrong. same power from your stereo on you deck you get and will be dividing all the power like sharing each other. parallel connection is the best one . but not much as when you hooked it to an amplifier. auxiliary is different which is another option like adding more components to your car.

Rear speakers in audi 1999 audi a4


You don't want to fit that - it's the factory amplifier for the rear speakers (the rears are amped, the fronts are not). You need to run new wires from the head unit back to the new rear speakers so that the speaker-level outputs from the new head unit are used to drive the new speakers.

1998 Audi A4 Quattro rear speaker wiring


You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).

You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.
