    You'll have quite a job on your hands, the rear deck is fairly heavy guage steel. I don't see how it can be done without major cutting. You won't get a huge benefit over aftermarket 6.5's. You'll also need to fit an amp for them as the rears run off their own amp bolted to the left rear speaker. I wou;dn't bother, fitting a dedicated sub & sub amp will give a far better increase in bass & sound quality with less effort and more stealthiness.

    personally im completely against 6x9s [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    they will attract thieves if not properly stealthed

    they drag the sound stage too far back, sound should come from the front [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    and if you have a sub in the boot you will get bass cancellation, as well as possibly damaged 6x9s if your sub moves a lot of air

    apologies for preaching [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    but back to the question at hand, as Andy says fit a sub and amp, results will be much better and the stage will remain in the front [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: 6x9 fitment

    i understand what your saying as going back to my mini days with tin snips.
    i have a pair of jbl 6x9s and a 800 watt 4 channel amp and sub from my last install.
    the amp has 2 channel full range and 2 channel bridged sub.
    to me the standard rear has nothing in them.
    ant other suggestions
    thanks.

    You'll need more than tin snips. It's heavy gauge steel and is double skinned. I wouldn't even think about trying to cut into it. Unlike a mini, Audi's aren't made out of recycled coke cans.
    The left rear speaker should have a metal cover partly obscuring the magnet so that it looks very different to the right one. This metal thing is the amp for the rears.
    I think there may have been a few A4's that were powered from the head unit but I could be wrong.
    I would get some half decent 6.5" replacement rears (not worth spending too much money here, 70 is more than enough) and power them off the amp, and use the bridged channel for a decent sub.
    Ideally you want to upgrade the fronts as this is where the quality will be apparent, and again these would benefit from a separate amp.

    Just some lowly Pioneer custom fit jobbies.
    forgot to mention you have to disconnect the rear cyclops brake light before you can slide the shelf out.

    I bought Focal 165 from e-bay for 60, but for this option you need Autoleads speaker adaptors, Halfords is the cheapest. (3/4 days del - 8.99) They also have some really good offers on speakers there is a pair of Pioneers at 69.99 should have been 89.99 - the sound pretty damn good.
