Default Audi A8 D3 sound system


I have a very simple questions for You audiophiles. Why Audi A8 model D3 with Bose sound system doesn't have tweeters in the front but has three midrange speakers in the dash?

Typically tweeters are above the midrange but close to it. In this case tweeters are mounted in the rear doors?

Is it something to do with that human voice and most of the instruments sound in the area of midrange?

This questions pumped in to my mind when I looked at different Audi sound systems and one of them was old Audi Coupe from 1991 where midrange speakers were located in the dash, midbass behind the front seats and tweeters in the rear "dashboard". What was the point of this sound system?

Thx guys!

Is a some type of FAST (I'm not aware of the system) with a low crossover point to the front doors, 20-cm Nd woofers. You can post that question to the guys in the car systems forums, if you aren't happy with the answers here.

The back seats have tweeters for the 2-ways with the back doors (higher crossover frequency), 16,8-cm low-mid-range speakers.
Have fun.
