I'm not a guy stereo at all. I just bought a crashed '13 Eco with the Bose stereo. Besides the fact that Bose stereo makes the dash harder to find and more expensive (passenger bag deployed), the rear speakers seem to be blown. The trunk had 2" of water in it when I bought the car, so moisture may have caused some of the issue. It's not moldy at all, so I believe the water was the trunk being open during recent heavy rains. I've read on Audi forums that Bose speakers come unglued prematurely, and that flexible craft glue makes a quality fix. The speakers are only about $35 ea from the dealer. Is there a proper way to troubleshoot if the issue lie in the speakers? Are there a better quality drop in replacement for $100/pr or less? Thanks

That's Nice to know that the build sheet states that but we would need to see a copy of that Sir.

You more than likely have other problems to go along with the Audio issues besides the factory installed speakers..

I would think that if water was present in the trunk then there is definitely a contamination to many electronic components and the wring harness.

I pulled the deck cover, and neither speaker appears to have any tears. What I did notice is that the speaker's movement is rough as I push down on the cone. I'd assume that means the speaker has some issues with the winding or magnet. I can get factory replacements for about $40/ea, so if someone has a recommendation on aftermarket replacements, I'm willing to give them a shot up to $150.

Research Ohms Law .. It is a Mathematical equation utilizing Ohms Law .
Ohms is a given resistance to the signal introduced .
Resistance will create heat and temperature extremes .
E=IR I'm familiar with Ohm's law. I don't really need to use it here, since I'm only changing parts not designing a system.
