    Hi, Ras. Long time, no speak. B5 A4 saloon has no wiring to rear doors for speakers. I wanted to install rear door speakers on my old 2.8Q but no joy.

    Take care, old buddy.

    Audi HU can't drive rear speakers. It only has an internal amp for the fronts. You'll need to either take a feed from the rears in the back shelf or install a small amp to drive them.

    Have a look for one with a wireless remote control, otherwise you're looking at quite a bit of rewiring

    No definately not. It's only 2 x 20w and the size of a matchbox, you'd need to hook up the door speakers in series with the rear deck speakers otherwise you'll be halving the impedance which will kill the stock amp.
    If you're installing a sub I'd disconnect the rear deck speakers and just rewire the amp to the rear doors. The deck speakers sound awful and will sound even worse with a sub thumping up behind them.
    I'm sure I saw some amps that had wireless remotes, but can't see any on the net now. There are a few with wired bass controllers, this Kenwood is a bargain at £120 for 500wrms bridged.
