Hello Ozzie1989,
If still wish for the sub in doblo, this perhaps solution for you:






The Doblo has the worst sound in all of my cars, this is why I worked him a little, put new speakers ahead end behind, two amplifires, every under own front seat and the sub that me doesn't hinder at transport of larger things.
And the sound is now.........

Cool Re: Replacing the radio..... JEEEZZ !!!!!!

Cheers for that I've now fitted my FLI sub and here it is complete with my well researched connectors so that I can easily pull it out when I need to

Cool Re: Replacing the radio..... JEEEZZ !!!!!!

Sound is sweet even with the standard speakers which I've filtered to take anything over 100hz (or Mhz can't remember which) on my head unit, so they have no trouble handling the mids and highs. Really loud too, have trouble seeing out of the mirrors sometimes they vibrate so much. The amp is 200w RMS (even though the speaker can do 300) and 1000w Max, and the amp is built in. Easy to take out now too, so I'm really pleased

Cool Re: Replacing the radio..... JEEEZZ !!!!!!

Yeah, it was between Alpine and Pioneer for me, but luckily I tried my Dads Pioneer first and I thought well it's got to be Pioneer Great sound even with standard speakers, so they'll be staying put for now, it's something I can replace in the future when I have more money

Donít forget to eject your CD from the existing radio before starting!!! Hard to eject with no power

Remove existing radio using release pins.

Remove 4 cross head screws from lower side of steering column shroud. Donít need to remove shroud just need to be able to move it away from central area a couple of centimetres.

Open glove box.

Remove 4 torx head screws Ė 2 on either side of lower central dash and pull lower central dash back slightly.

Pull up on gearstick gaiter and unclip from dash.

Remove 2 cross head and 2 torx head screws now visible through the hole normally covered by gaiter.

Prise out the central air vents. BE VERY CAREFUL. The front flaps and ring may come off first but stop pulling on them. You want the complete unit Ė a tube about 6 inches long.

Remove 2 cross head screws through vacant air vent holes.

Pull upper central dash back.

Remove 2 screws securing front of binnacle to dash.

Remove 2 screws securing back of binnacle to dash.

EASY PEASY WHEN YOU KNOW HOW.

Tip for reassembly:

The air vent tubes will only fit back in the correct orientation. There is a tag running down the side of each tube which must line up with a cut out in the dash hole.


Niall

.
Or..... you could bodge it in.

Re: Replacing the radio..... JEEEZZ !!!!!!

I fitted a new Sony Radio/CD/MP3 thing today in the way Niall described.

Niall, if the Krypton Factor ever comes back on TV you should enter! Many thanks for the post.

I would back up what others have said, the sound quality is better now and I don't have to fill the car with CD's.

Re: Replacing the radio..... JEEEZZ !!!!!!

Midweek I bought a ripspeed cmr2000 for £90. It has an SD slot as well as USB port & the front turns down to insert CDs.
It's the same size as the pioneer cd player that came out, although I had to mod the back of the pod to get the space.

With the radio out, insert a long crosshead to undo the two screws at the back, lift the back of the pod enough to gain access with stanley & slice off the plastic support bracket to gain an extra inch.

The ripspeed comes with an adapter to plug the dobbie's wiring loom into the back, an aerial adaptor is the only extra expense.
After this, the dobbies wiring loom & socket needs to be carefully pushed back under the dash (through the large hole it comes out of) and the new unit just squeezes in.
Sound quality is far better than the pioneer, much louder.
I now have umpteen albums dropped onto a 4 gig SD card and at power on, the unit plays at the point it was at when it was turned off (like having a cassette player). You also get the artist & song title scrolling across the screen (if you save it to the card).

Best of all, the main display is blue but all the buttons are red - so matches dobbie's display.
You also get a remote control pad and where the front drops forward (slowly) to access the cd player, it also allows you to remove the faceplate.

The quality is better than the pioneer unit that I took out, I can crank up the volume way more than the pioneer could give out & the standard speakers seem to be able to take the extra. It's certainly loud enough to hear the music above any road noise & I've had the windows down all the time so far.

And I like the way the front slowly flips down to access the CD / remove the faceplate.

A pity the unit wasn't black/grey to blend in - although the buttons light up red like the dash so that's a bonus.
I also appreciate the way it starts at the same point you left it when you switch off, handy as I have a 4 gig SD card in there with 20 albums loaded on.

Re: Replacing the radio..... JEEEZZ !!!!!!

My first post so hello to all of you.

Since you are able to take pictures, can you please post one of the front dash board speakers? In mine I have only two holes to attach the speaker to and I was wondering if I am not missing some type of adapter since the car came without speakers.
