    I noticed today that I've got no audio coming through the right speakers, neither front nor rear. I have searched the forum and noticed Andy's tip to re solder the potential dry joints in the Bose amp. I will have a go at this, but are there other recommendations?

    car is an 2002 8l S3.

    Thanks! :sm4:

    you need to find whats failed first and foremost

    it could be the headunit itself
    the connection from the headunit to the amplifier
    the amplifier itself
    or the speakers which its connected to

    go through them one by one from the top and see which has failed

    Thanks Dualmono, I have diagnosed it to be the amp. Seeing as it's Bose, it's unlikely to be the RNS-E, as it's only a data wire between head unit & amp. Speakers rarely fail, and the sound is erratic. Just wondered if anyone with a similar setup found a fix.
