Yes, it's a blown speaker ... actually it's a blown
amp, but they exchange as a unit for under $100 (or at
least they did ~3 years ago via Carlsen when I had to
do so.  ' same passenger door speaker.) 

Be very careful removing the door panel.  Use a proper
tool to release the ~9 fasteners around the lower half
of the panel.  Don't just pull with your finger tips
or you'll break the thin plastic panel like I did. 

I documented this in the archives of that era. 
Whatever happened to the plan to get that archive
combined with the current one? 

Good luck, 



Bose speakers have built-in amps, so just any old
speaker won't do.  Strangely, though, this is one of
the few items that Audi *doesn't" (or didn't) charge a
ridiculous amount for.  Last I checked, a rebuilt unit
was $75 or so.

replace the speaker, if it is shot. Have any of you 
installed other speakers in the front door panel
without cutting the panel, or compromising the quality
of sound?
