    I dont think you will see much improvement to be honest. Do you have the BOSE setup in yours? I must admit, i thought the standard setup was pretty damn good in the audi compared to previous cars ive owned

    S3 speakers are exactly the same as 1.8T speakers, i.e. shockingly bad. The only difference would be between a Bose & non-Bose system, in which case you can't just swap the speakers. You'd need to get the Bose amp, wiring & sub, and experience that classic muffled Bose sound.
    The standard Concert setup in an A3T is one of the worst I have come across in a modern car. My old MkIII GTi had a much better setup, and even the Astra I had (as a Co. car) was significantly better.
    You can retro fit Kenwood speakers in any A3 for about 130 (fronts & rears) and get a significant improvement.
    Also Dynamatting the doors and rear quarters will improve the tightness of the sound at the same time.

    These are the standard non-Bose speakers from a A3T.

    Funnily enough, they look like the speakers that came out of my S3.

    Take Andy's advice and change'em. I spent more on the front (MB Quart component) than the back (Alpines), since I sit in the front [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Bobb, Andy has demonstrated you can put an amp in the rear quarter panel, out the way. I wouldn't use something like MBs with a std. head unit. Not enough to drive them properly.

    MB Quart are FANTASTIC speakers! They cost me 120 fro the fronts alone. a fair amount, but well worth the money!
