    Hello

    Im new to the forum and have wanted to ask this for a while now..

    My A3 8L's audio only comes out of the right side speakers (front and rear), not the left?
    I can also hear a whining whizzing noise as I rev the engine from the working speakers :/

    I have an aftermarket stereo (I tried 2 stereos) and it has the BOSE sub in the rear.

    Any ideas? I could not see a fuse or anything for it and the sub itself looks and works OK?

    Cheers

    The whining is because they have used the speaker input adapter from the aftermarket HU into the Bose loom. You need to use the RCA input adapter which will probably cure the left channel issue as well.
