    Sadly my front bose speakers are crackling and I rang TPS to order a set but they aren't available anymore :(
    Does anyone know of a direct plug and play replacement for the front speakers?

    Thanks

    That was me and here is the link:

    JAM :: Pack of 2 JAM Replacement Speaker Driver for Bose 802 MkII & MkIII

    They fit the front and also the drivers in the sub. Bargain at £21 each posted.

    Crackling may not be the speakers, it could be dodgy transistors in your amp.

    Strange...

    I called TPS myself just the other day and they said they didn't have any on the shelf, but could order them in for me :confused:

    That's news to me...

    Bose have discontinued the speakers and have no stock themselves, so either Audi have residual stock or are now sourcing them from else where.

    The ones I posted in the link above are every bit as good as the original Bose items though.

    As above, try swapping the front speakers over to confirm it is the speakers not the amp at fault. I bought one from Audi about a month ago so they were still available.

    I can still pull up a price from audi's system, so I'd say on that basis they are still available, although it's not always right! but @£38+vat from audi buying the ones in the link jim posted you'd be getting 2 for 1 :)

    I have the standard system in my car. My fronts are crackling too. Would these be a straight replacement?

    No they are for Bose systems and are lower impedance, non bose ones from Audi are cheaper £12+vat ish iirc. :)
