speaker sizes

I think we can all agree the speakers are........well naff!

Can anyone recommend or has fitted a aftermarket set of better quality. No wanting to spend mega-bucks but need a 'decent' set

Ebays the way
I brought a set of Sony 6x9's less than 20 deliverd!
Made some new covers for the back out of mdf and coverd in black fabric,made a hell of a differance.
Then just bodged some Alfa 156 door speakers behind the dash for a temp solution to the proppa naff fronts!!
But i will make some pods for the front doors in time as the rears ...well theyre far better than the front.

hope this helps

Richie

Re: speaker sizes

With regards to three sizes, are there any depth restrictions?

IE, will any of the above 3 sizes fit or can the only be 2 inches deep for example? In the same way is there a restriction between the mounting plate and the door panel / rear side panel etc?

I don't want to have to cut any holes in the panels you see.

thanks!!

Re: speaker sizes

Warning Warning, the door speakers are mounted in a steel frame which you could shave with, its that sharp.

I did the lot with standard size speakers, sony 10 cm in dash, sony 165 in doors and the JBL GTO fits fine as a straight swap in back. Makes a big difference.

Re: speaker sizes

Thanks for that.

I'm looking at FLI 4 for the dash, FLI 6 for the doors and PYLE Blue for the back pair as I don't have a huge amount to spend.

FLI seem to get good reviews but unsure about the PYLE blue?

Re: speaker sizes

I was toying with an under the passenger seat active sub actually but they don't seem to get so good reviews. I need the boot space for carrying stuff.

Plus there's the wiring issues. Not sure I have the patience at the moment!

Re: speaker sizes

I keep thinking about putting in a separate power amp thats a good way of getting bass as it would really keep a tighter reign on the speakers. Trouble is its a dash out procedure so cba lol.
