    13cm Vibe components for A4(B5)

    I'm about to get these http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/product_...7a717393a4dc213 or anything in the price range (budget Ł50) for the front doors for my A4 Avant 96 P reg. My worry is if they fit with only using adaptors and no modding? The mounting depth of the above is 64mm. These will be powered by my Alpine head unit so not going to be amped. Thanks.

    they SHOULD fit. im not too sure of the A4's mounting depth limits. however if you do have any problems mike at CAD will sort it out no problems. the vibe components are a okay choice. have you looked at a sub yet? what head unit is it?

    I doubt they'll fit as the Rainbow components I installed in my B5 (SLX230) were a real squeeze and they are only 54mm deep. It also depends on the size of the magnet as well as the depth

    I mounted Infinity comps on the spacers, they are around 56mm, if you need to reduce the fitting height, you will need to make MDF rings as stated already

    Easytease I chose the Vibes over the Alpines coz of their lower frequency 60-20kHz as opposed to the Alpines
    80-22kHz. If the Alpines are better overall then I'll get them instead.
    There will be no sub and the head unit is this http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/product_...94fa9e4546f8af9 , nothing special but alright since I can control the bass.

    Ummm I doubt very much the cardboard door cards are really gonna be able to take advantage of the 60Hz, you really do need a sub to get anything decent out of the Audi system.
