Any recommendations for front door speakers for an '87 5ktqw?  Will 6 1/2"
fit?   I'm installing an Alpine head unit and amp so need speakers which
provide decent bass at high power levels.  I bought a SAS Bazooka 10"
sub but may not install it due to space.  Anyone interested in trading the sub
 for quality door speakers or buying it outright?

Fellow Audi fanatic,
	I own a 1987 5000 CD Quattro and a couple years ago, I installed a 3 way set 
from MB Quart (6.5's, 4's, and .75 tweets).  I made 2 boards of .75" MDF and 
wrapped them with black vinyl (one for each door).  I mounted one 6.5" and one 
4" per board.  I had to cut holes in the door panel to accomodate the speaker 
magnets.  I mounted the tweeters in the factory dash locations.  These speaker 
came with their own crossovers.  I powered them with an Alpine  V12 MRV 400 
60Wx4 rms.  I also have 2 JL 12" subs in the trunk to provide low end bass.  
These  are powered by an Alpine V12 MRV 1000 150Wx2, 300Wx1 rms.  I find that 
the quarts are a very clear sounding speaker and they can also handle alot of 
power.  I have a set of quarts 6.5 coaxials for which I will be making a 
custom package tray for to use as rear fill, these will be powered by the 
remaining 2 channels of the MRV 400.  Hope you find this information helpful.
