    The speakers are Bose, just not the tweeters as already said.
    Yes, Bose actually complicates the upgrade process, so by speccing it you need to ensure you're happy with it, which many strange people seem to be.
    With non Bose you can upgrade different bits at different times, so alot easier all round.
    You can use the stock speaker wiring but you'd need to locate any crossovers in the door panels and bypass the wiring to the tweeters. Rewiring the doors is a massive PITA, so I'd use the stock wiring especially if you're running it from an amp already in the boot.
    Sorry I didn't realise Audi have switched back to Grundig as an OEM supplier (didn't even know Grundig still existed!)

    Well my 2005 HU has a Grundig warranty sticker on it - so I guess they must still exist (or have existed in 2005).

    Andymac...Where is the BOSE amp located in the car exactly?
    After properly looking into it, i wouldn't touch BOSE and i've previously defended it! Wouldn't actually bother with any of the standard Audi set up long term to be honest and that includes RNS-E.
    There's just so much better kit at cheaper prices. Sure some of it might not look totally OEM but lets be honest.... Do you listen to music or look at it?

    If you look at Pauls pic of the boot it's in the rear right hand side as your looking into the boot.! Opposite side to the sub
