    Decided to go with Andymacs suggestion on the Blaukpunt DAB.
    What speakers would you reccommend?
    I have seen these at a resonable price, are they any good or what would you reccommend for front and rear doors?
    Alpine SXS-1757 Components cost around £59.00
    BTW I have an RF 301 amp that should be getting fitted as well.
    Thanks

    Can't really go wrong with Alpine, I've got a set in the front doors of our A4 B6 Avant.
    A good reasonably priced speaker and whatever you fit will be infinately better than the garbage Audi seem to think is OK to fit to a prestige brand.
    Not sure what the fitting is like on the A6, but on the B6 A4 the speakers are mounted to the door, rather than the door card giving an infinately better sound as they're bolted to something solid. I had to fabricate a couple of 18mm MDF spacer rings per speaker to give you the required depth. The OEM speakers standoff the door by about 40mm. You then need some 6mm MDF screwed to the back of the rings to provide the flange that ultimately screws to the door.
