    most likely 10cm (4inch). due to lack of space behind the door card it's hard to find replacement aftermarket ones that are slim enough to fit.

    I run Focal 5" components on an adapter ring in the front of my A4, tight fit but do work well. The quality of adapter rings seems to vary wildly as some I've seen are completely gash!

    have you modified your door card in any way?

    i've got a facelift A4 and it's a mission trying to find some after market speakers that will fit without modifying the door card.

    Nope, the adapter mounts to the original speaker position on teh card and the new speaker screws to that. Refitting the door card can be a little awkward with bigger magnets but not too shocking.

    are you looking at putting the front door speakers throught an amp? if not IMHO i wouldnt bother as when i did they sounded worse as Oranoco said some adapter rings are cr*p i bought the the Autoleads brand...
    You can make up some of your own if you have the time out of MDF as AndyMac did.

    i wouldnt bother with a BOSE system, as you will have to re-wire the entire system, quite a bit of work

    How about running the Bose speakers, but driving them via the aftermarket amp?

    Are the speakers themselves half decent?
