Re: Higher idle (And other stuff...)

	       Also, the front speakers are hardly audible when the rear
	       speakers are on. I know that the rear speakers are amplified,
	       but it seems like they drown out the front speakers. I have to
	       use the fader sometimes just to make sure the front speakers
	       are working! :-)

	The car has 6 speakers, 2x5.25" bass and 2x2" tweeters in the rear,
	and 2x3.5" "general purpose" in the front dash. Naturally, the front
	speakers are no match for the rear's combination.  Since there will
	not be much of a difference in replacing the 3.5" speakers, the only
	thing you could do is install 2 bigger speakers (in the front doors),
	or replace the entire system.  While I'm not an audio fanactic, I'm
	happy with the system.

I also have a '91 Coupe Quattro, and I find that the stereo sound in this car
is terrible, compared to my old '88 Audi 80.  The radio unit is the same, as
are the sizes of the front speakers.  It appears the lossage is attributable
to the rear speakers.  I plan on replacing them at some point in the near
future with some really hot ones.
