    Yes, see this thread:
    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a4-a4-cabriolet-s4-forum-b6-chassis/92187-sub-issues.html

    The enclosure is 18mm MDF, and would take an 8" sub. Transforms the sound but does need about 250wrms to drive it. The amp can be installed where the old tupperware sub used to live. All the connections are already in the boot, you just need to run a power cable to the battery.
    You can't just change the speaker as it's the tupperware box it sits in that is the main problem, plus the feeble 1 x 50w amp that drives it.

    I'd love to but the buggy and all the shopping would ruin it in no time, i've already got a load of sony gear, amps crossovers and 10" sub from my other b5 saloon.

    Cheers

    No all Audi HU's have front and rear pre-outs. The stock sub amp runs off the rear pre-outs already in the boot so you can use these to drive an aftermarket sub amp. You will need a 4channel amp as you need to drive the rears as well, or get a small 2ch just for the rears
