Center speaker rattle ? Bose
 
guys i have a rattle coming from front center speaker on my new to me 2011 audi a8l with factory bose audio... my friend who has a same year same option car has the same issue, is it the speaker thats blown or is it the grill rattle ? some songs its perfectly fine some its horrible and its bad on phone calls and navigation commands if the volume is up ?

how does one remove the speaker grill on that dash to figure if its the grill or speaker itself?

thank you

i have a similar issue... it appears mostly while on bluetooth phone calls, it distorts on the last syllable spoken by the caller...

i thought the speaker might be blown or something... i've been trying to find the right test tone, so I can reproduce it for a service advisor.

So far I have not found anything consistent.

Just picked my car up from its 35k service and I told the service advisor about the speaker distortion when I dropped it off... There was a TSB and they updated the Bluetooth firmware. TSB 2033032/2 and TSB 2030465/10 is what it says on the repair order. Haven't had any distortion yet, but I've only placed one call and had the car in my possession for 1 hour.

Remember, if your vents are pointed anywhere near where the microphone is, you're callers will hear what sounds like static. It doesn't affect what you hear, though.

This is my version i believe its lower then yours, could you play around with it and give us an update to confirm if its a software fix or if need new speaker

Software Update didn't fix it... it sounds like the center speaker is where phone calls come out... so I'll have them check that next time I take it in.

If it is similar to the A6, the grill is easy to pry off (start at corner closest to passenger seat), and you will need a 5.5 mm socket. Not being able to control the overwhelming output of this speaker, I disconnected it.
