How many speakers come in a 2014 R8?

I just got my 2014 R8 and I realized, the two spots behind both seats where I think should be speakers are empty, there are no speakers in them. I can't even find a wire, although it could be tucked somewhere.

I also realized the two tweeters were missing, these were clearly removed since there was glue and the wiring, so I bought a pair to replace those. But were there speakers in the back from stock or have these also been removed?

If it has the B&O system then it has 12 loudspeakers, 10 amplifier channels with a total output power of 465 watts. There's 2 tweeters on the rear from stock.

Can't see anything on that photo it's so blurry. How do I know if it came with the B&O system, I am assuming that is an option?

My 2013 Plus has no rear speakers either. I think my none B&O 2008 V8 did have some sort of rear speakers.

My 2014 A pillars don't even have a chrome/silver ring on the A pillar, it's just a bunch of holes. I'm guessing I don't have the option, or perhaps they changed the design for the 2014 facelift?

"Just a bunch of holes" sounds like someone really messed with the audio system - you didn't notice this when buying it? If it had B&O, the speaker trim would say it (as shown above) - looks the same on the facelift years (2014/15). You can also run a VIN decoder if you don't have the window sticker.

If the car was a V10 (and in the US) then B&O was standard. If it was a V8, then B&O was an option.

It sounds like somebody stole the B&O sound before selling the car…

They probably had a aftermarket setup and removed the nice speakers from the car when it was sold. You can usually find these on eBay pretty cheap

Bunch of holes, meaning the design by audi... drilled holes fading out, I don't want to find a picture, but its a different design from the chrome ring design. Bought 2 20 dollar audi tweeters, worked great. Don't see wires for the rear ones though.
