Upgrading the 500 sound system

Hi guys, I am wanting to upgrade my Fiat 500 sound system by adding new speakers and an under the seat subwoofer. I was going to go with the optional upgrade before the car was built but the dealers really messed me around on it all so I thought it would be easier to go without.

I was impressed with the standard sound system as it was, but after hearing samples of Pendulums new album I realize it's time for an upgrade!

I would prefer to keep the standard head unit but it I need to upgrade then I guess it can't be avoided....

So yeah, I would love to hear about anyone who has done this to their 500 and what equipment they used. Also for anything I need to look out for while installing the new speakers/sub.

Re: Upgrading the 500 sound system

Hi welcome to the forum. There was a thread very similar to this so i will dig it out for you in a bit.
You can keep the standard head unit, it will never send a great quality signal to your amps in comparison to an aftermarket unit but there are things like the Audison bit one which do a pretty good job at hiding it.
Expensive i know but they can be had a lot cheaper second hand and there are other cheaper products on the market. That was just an example.

So what sort of budget do you have?
Car Audio Goodness at its best for sale.
