    Hi,

    Lots of discussions regarding bose setups on this forum but not much related to the non-bose (presumably ****ty Blaupunkt?). I have a front speaker thats nearly blown and am looking at replacing the front 6.5". Is this a direct replacement, can I just plug and play or is there more work involved and will they run off the amp/sub currently in the car?

    The fronts run off the HU, you will need fitting adapters for aftermarket speakers (search ebay for Audi MDF)
    Guide to fitting is here:

    You are better off getting 6.5" components without an active crossover otherwise they are a ballache to fit as the tweeters aren't in the doors. The JL Audio TR650csi's are a good option for sensible money

    So just two 6.5" speakers, no tweeters? Will this work with the standard Concert HU? I don't really want to have to start replacing other items if I can help it.

    Components have separate tweeters

    Yes I know, and I know they are in the pillar by the airbag but do you think I'd be alright just replacing the doorcard speakers? Will it sound ok?
