fwiw,  i sold + installed high end home and car audio for a few years so i
aint totally innerant on the subject...

 id see what ohm rating they are and if they're close to 4ohms, get yourself
a set of car audio tweeters from madisound or some other car audio speaker
supply house. the stock audi speakers are total garbage from what ive seen.
and despite an aftermarket speaker not being specifically designed for the
location, amp, etc in the audi bose system, it *is* a car and 9/10 times
will work great.

andrew [on this list] just replaced his bose rear woofers after like the 8th
blowout in 5 years with a nice aftermarket car woofer on my recc. i think he
got them from madisound for like $60/ea and they worked out great. vs like
160/ea from the stealer.
