Switch it over and fit it in my 208 when I get it or is it just a massive hassle?

How easy is it getting to the front speakers to change them standard door speakers fit ok??

Sounds like the rears will be a job to get to!

Was it difficult wiring your sub in and connecting it up to the multimedia unit?

Its on the menu but I don't see why whichever person in the back who is weighing my car down, not paying fuel and spilling crisp crumbs all over my seats should get the privilege of good sounding music at my expense. Hahaha. The fronts are good enough for now. When I turn it right up the back fade out and start crackling and I think the overall sound will be better with new ones in the back two. Im maybes going with the same brand but a lower range. There is no point splashing out mega bucks on a good sound system when its getting ran off a standard head unit.

Just love a bit of extra base! :)

The front speakers are 6.5 inch in size. Not sure how deep you can go but these are 2.56 inch deep. Getting to them is easy. Obviously youll need to make an adapter to the fitting of the new speaker but other than that, straight in, wire up, turn up and spend the next month tracking down your new rattles.

And erm...... my rears are easy peasy. 5 door ftw

Well of course. Your in the front so its the front that counts. Tbh with you just upgrading the fronts makes a hell of a difference. Mgauky will back me up on that one.

Well seen as though Mgauky copied I may aswel allow you too. Just this once though. Everything else on my car is patented and I will take legal action.

They are Hertz ESK165L 300w. The kit includes the speakers, tweeters, splitters and fixings. One of the best mods ive done so far. Ample bass, clarity is brilliant and you can actually turn your volume level past 16 and it wont start crackling! Mind you lvl 23-25 is loud enough haha. On full whack the bass does start to distort but that is down the the standard HU.

I've been looking at the Hertz ESK165L 300w that you mentioned. Where do you find a home for the little amps with them?

I left those out. No point in fitting with a standard head unit really. But at least they are in incase of a later update
