Front: 4"
Rear: 6.5"
Rear Deck: 6.5"

'96 seems to have smaller speakers in the rear doors if you even have that

Really? I could have sworn they were bigger than that.

edit: Apparently 6.5" non bose and 5.25" if you have bose.

There is if it has bose, which I actually never heard of a '96 with bose, but it wouldn't be the first time I was surprised about options that B5s had.


its year dependant as well.

the non-bose stereo has 1" dome tweeters in the front doors, 4" mid-bass in the front doors and 6 1/2" coaxials in the rear deck.

bose stereo in early models were the same as above, except the rear deck had 6 1/2" subwoofers and the rear doors had 3 1/2" midbass.

bose in later models was the same as above, but the rear door speakers are also 6 1/2"

Each version used slightly different speakers as well.

In the post you quoted, 96 only came with the first set of options. It wasn't until sometime in 97 that Bose made an appearance in NA.

All 96 should have the factory symphony installed with speakers only in the front doors and rear deck. I didn't know the rear deck was coaxial though

I got the idea '96 had bose from this guy


my 96 has 4" front doors, 3.5" rear doors and 6.5" rear deck subwoofers. (bose stereo)

my 01 has 4" front doors, 6.5" rear doors and 6.5" rear deck subwoofers (bose as well)
both cars are sedans. Seperate 1" dome tweeters are mounted higher in the front doors of both cars.

The avant has a single rear subwoofer in the bose system, not sure exactly where it is.

Non-bose doesn't have speakers in the rear doors, just the front doors and rear deck

Yes, for sedans that is the case. Not for Avants though.

Well just so we go for completeness,

99.5 Avant non-Bose
Front doors 4" mid-woofers and 1" tweeters
Rear doors 6.5" coax located in the lower door
Cargo area DVC subwoofer (~6") located behind the left trim panel above and behind the rear wheel

Front speakers are driven from the head unit at 2x20W
The rear and sub are driven from a 4x20W (likely rating). The sub itself is a 3 ohm DVC driver so the actual power is likely around 2x25-30W.

Well, looks like I'll have to take my rear door cards off to have a look. That must be a 96.5 thing then.

My facelift A4 sedan has 6.5" rear door speakers. It came with Bose from factory.
I worked on a S4 Avant (with Bose) that had 5.25" rear door speakers.

Front door speakers can be 5.25" plug-and-play if you buy Autoleads SAK-1104 adapters. They're usually like $15-20 shipped from the UK.

My 98 Prefacelift originally had non-bose system with 4" at front doors and 5.25" on rear deck.

I have now 5.25" at front using SAK adapter and 6.25" on rear deck using another adapter. [:)]

6.25 Speakers came with an adapter, so I just used that one. See below;

Do the rear speakers have stock amplifier?
