    S3 8L Speaker Sizes Please

    Hi guys,

    Sick of searching through treads full of non related stuff, please can someone tell me what the speaker sizes are including the sub and maybe suggestions on what you are using.

    Thanks

    Bose all the speakers are 4", with 1" tweeters in the front doors. Non Bose the fronts are 4" and the rears and sub are 6.5". Best upgrade you can do is add a proper sub or stealth sub. Quality from the cabin speakers is severely compromised by the flimsy door cards the speakers mount to.

    Edit: no idea why they are showing as temporary URLs but those are links direct from http://www.rainbow-audio.de/ the kit in question is SLX 365.20 Deluxe.

    No ideally you need proper 2 way components up front, and most people go with 5.25" as you'll need adapter rings anyway. Try the 230slx deluxe. No point wasting Rainbows in the rear, just some cheaper 6.5" coxials will do as the flimsy doorcard they are screwed to will put paid to any bass you might be hoping to get from them.
    If you want decent sounds in the A3 you need to install a sub, doesn't matter what you fit in the cabin.
