Front Door Speakers? Was RE: [200q20v] another question

It appears that the door speakers were only present in the sedans,
as you are the third Avant owner to mention this to me. Weird- I don't
understand the reasoning behind this at all.

  Front Door Speakers? Huh? There are none in my Avant.

   Is this standard on sedans, or part of the Bose system? I'd love to get
some gray door panels from junkyard if I could have a factory-like front
door speakers

    The front speakers, I can give you some info on:
    The dash speakers are approx. 3.5", although you will only have
    one in the passenger side if you have the factory phone installed.

    The front door speakers are 4".

    If you get a/d/s speakers, make sure you get the 4" component
    set. I recommend against mounting the tweeters in the dash locations,
    as you will end up with too much treble boost from reflecting off of
    the windshield. Yes, even with those sweet soft dome tweeters in the
    a/d/s line.

    Sorry, I can't help with the rear speakers. Someone recently spoke of
    putting a custom enclosure in one of the rear wheel well areas, if you
    can do this. I think you can put the spare under the cargo floor (IIRC,
    a full size spare will fit there) and then use the space where the
    spare usually resides to build a custom enclosure. You will have to have
    a custom glassed exterior to match the contours, though, which will be
    very expensive.

    I just went through a complete gutting of my factory Audi/Bose stereo
    and am wondering what setup you're considering.

      Can anybody tell me what size speakers fit in an Audi 200 quattro
wagon (1991); non bose stereo.  I would like to upgrade to ADS component
speakers and would appreciate any information on the topic.   Anybody have
any suggestions as to the best place to mount a sub unobtrusively?
