Does anyone know the wattage and number of speakers of the standard sound system?

8 in the standard just in the front?? No way! I think you're counting plastic covers!

From memory I'm guessing 4 in the front and 4 in the back?

No idea about watts I'm afraid.

From what I gathered from our car there are 2 in the back, two in the front (doors) plus 2 tweeters in the pillars. Thats it. There are however as you say a lot of covers but speakers are only fitted behind them all if you opt for Bose.

No if you look carefully there are two in the front pillars as well - and pretty sure there was another one I found on the door! I'll check again tomorrow

(And the ones I found were definitely speakers not covers as I could feel them vibrating)

According to the brochure we have a total of 6 speakers and 2 tweeters in the car... Maybe my first guess was right with 4 front (inc. Tweeters) and 4 rear?

No mention of wattage however the upgraded system is 180 watts and that has an extra amp soooo significantly less than that...?

According to the brochure:
Standard sound system with Chorus (not sure if you have it in the UK): 4 passive speakers total 40 watts
Standard sound system with Concert/Symphony: 8 passive speakers total 80 watts
Audi Sound System: 10 loud speakers + sub + 6-channel amp total 180 watts
BOSE: 14 loudspeakers + sub + 10-channel amp total 465 watts

Hi,

I have the sport edition, it has 2 speakers in each door, tweakers on the pillars with another at the front by the window.

I have removed the back seats, and there seems to be a speaker underneath. Can anyone confirm this, or would it be a sub.

Cheers

If you have a centre speaker by the front window then you must have upgraded the stereo which means you will also have a sub, I believe it's in the boot though and not under the back seats?

If not then you're imagining things and the 'speaker' at the front by the window is just a plastic cover I'm afraid.

My car in the front has only 2 speakers in the door and 2 tweeters in the pillars. By the door handles it has plastic covers and in the front centre it has a plastic cover. This is the standard basic crappy stereo in the uk. :)

I'm confused which sound system I have now - Does the Sport come with an upgraded stereo? As the speakers in my door pillars definitely work and are not just covers

No sport is standard. The ones in the pillars work, they're the tweeters, however the ones by the door handles don't and neither does the centre one. :)

Can some lift there back seat out (very easy by the way) and tell me what that is on the left. It has cables going to it??

cheers
Yeah I've got this thing, it's probably just a distribution from the battery as that's in the boot. It's certainly not a speaker or amp of any sort.
