Re: Speakers upgrade Panda 319.

Yes, the ones fitted to my cross were not pleasing.

I found the biggest issue with fitting new ones, is the clearance to the window when winded down. There is approx. 46mm clearance from window to front of door baffle (where you mount the speaker). This makes the available choices of speaker upgrades rather few.

Gladen SQX 165 slim will work in the door (just an example). You have to make your own baffle (which you should anyway!).

By doing the regular "seal and dampen" the door, you would gain an acceptable level from 60 Hz and up. You would have issues with the door card rattling (mine still does after massive damping). Bass guitar notes seems to rattle the worst (Mark Knopfler - Sailing to Philadelphia).

As for the tweeters, I have just disconnected them, and mounted a set of 3,5" widebands in the mirror sail panels.
Thanks MickG thanked for this post

THX, Gladen would also my make of choice for the up-grade speakers.
Baffle's will be MDF.
