So, standard speakers not quite good enough for you? <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" /> <br />

Absolutely brilliant guide cheers mate! I terminal blocked the old to new wire together for an easier swap/removal/re-installation in case of sale/upgrade!

Thanks again!

I can't drill the rivets out! I've got the first part of them off with the 5mm drill bit but the part that requires 3mm isn't working help

I also found the rivets hellishly difficult today - having drilled off the head, I had to bash around with a pin punch to eventually get the centre bit out of the door metalwork.

I notice the doors have large openings in the metalwork, so mounting the speaker onto the door (not sealed against the door trim) won't sound very good. It will probably need to have all the holes sealed with bitumen sheet as shown in post #27 by Konrad.

Hi guys,

New to this only had my 56 Grande Punto a few months and the speakers have to go. I have ordered a set of Co-axial speakers to go with my SONY Bluetooth DSX-A60BT head unit but I am looking at the section where you wire new speaker wire into the existing cable on the car. But because my new speakers are co-axials I have been told I can use the existing wire already in the car? Is this true. I have speaker cable from my dads amps and home cinema system so I can put it in but just wondering if I really need to, thanks.

I used the standard wire, you can remove the spade connectors from the standard speaker plug if you're careful using a tiny screw driver. I simply plugged those onto my new speakers and it works great.
