... thanks Rich!  Yes, I know ... that is why I used the word
"investigate" ... 

Since both of my cars are '91s it isn't an issue for me, but I know that
if I owned a 1990 model I would be raising the issue with the NHTSA.  As
far as I know the 1990 Audi V8 Quattros used exactly the same stereo as
the 1991, with the same Audi part number for the rear deck speakers.  As
I have stated before, it seems to me that anyone who is concerned that
this problem may affect them as well ought to contact the NHTSA and
submit a problem report.  I just checked the site and see that there
were two people who submitted reports back in 2001 ... perhaps a few
more reports might get some action ... here's a link:


... the campaign ID number for the 1991 models is: 01V324000

... it turns out that I've had a couple of front speakers lose amps
lately ... in one case I suspect that a catastrophic failure might well
have occurred if I had left the unit installed and powered up ...
