It could be the speaker common wire. IIRC the front and rear have a common
The doors have a 4" mounted in a large enclosure. I actually wired in a
small amp in the non-working side. It took a couple tries with the level
adjustment. It was a small 4 or 8 watt unit.
I replaced the original rear speakers with Sony 6x9 which worked out nicely.
If the amps do work you can run them with pre amp outputs on the head unit.
You can check them with any small input hooked up to the speaker amp.

had the Bose recall done. two new amps. still only one rear speaker works
(why - isn't the amp integral with the speaker?). and the left front side
doesn't work. when i hit the fader on the deck, the sound sort of move
towards the working right side, but the rears get muffled and boomy.
probably bad electrolytics in the tone control circuit on the head unit.

amusingly enough, the CD changer works PERFECTLY! LOL!

eh, I'm a home audiophile anyway (vintage tube McIntosh amps, etc.) - Bose
sucks ;-)

from what i heard of the speakers that do work, it's that typical Bose
bloated tubby bass sound. I'm not much of a car audiophile though, but i
will need a decently functioning stereo.

so, i do have a nice $300 Clarion head unit from my old Taurus SHO. I'll
throw that in and run the rest of the system off it as well.

what size speakers do i get for the rears, the door panels and the dash?

the stereo is not top priority as it seems UPS lost my good used H&R/Koni
set-up from force5. that's the first time stuff got lost in shipping for me.
Chris is on top of it though.

just gonna drive my Nissan sentra and put the Audi in the garage. it's not
super fun floating around with 280HP and shot suspension :-)
