Subject: Speaker swap/sub available
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.
