How much you willing to spend?

Do you have a 3 or a 5 door?

how much mechanical/ car savvy do you have?

First thing i would be doing is ripping out the OEM speakers ive done mine the other week in my GP evo (and did my last GP as well) The speakers are naff. Paper cones with the worlds smallest magnets (my rear drivers side one had failed completely (no sound) so needed doing....

I installed a full set of these: not the best but do sound surprisingly good

http://www.fliaudio.co.uk/fu-coax-speakers/

fu6 and fu5 (front and back)

Some aditional sound proofing in the rear panels is a must too imo whilst you in there it makes sense to do it

http://www.wilcodirect.co.uk/tetrosy...d-200mm-x-50mm

i used 4 a side

at this time of year a heat gun is needed to soften the pads and warm the body work to ensure good adhesion


Will move this to the ICE section where the car audio nerds hide

I suppose it depends if you want a kick up the arse or a thump in the back. Lol.
