Speaker Upgrade

Hi, i would like to do a speaker upgrade, the factory speakers don"t satisfy my expectations so i wanted to ask if there is, who did this already and what is available on the market.

what do you find lacking of the OE speakers?
having the GT with premium audio, i felt it just lacked bass, so added a slim 10" sub.

i added a LOC to 'extract' a signal for sub amp from the normal speaker wires.
far cheaper and quicker than pulling door cards off and replacing speakers.


i see your belgium, so LHD card... afaik amp power wire can be ran through the firewall grommet near the brake pedal (RHD UK cars is up the back of heater unit, accessed from below).

Hi, i used the connectors from the original speakers, cut it out with pincers tool and leave the copper wires on and then connect them with the new speakers put them in and thats it, it took me about 2 hours to do this job but its so much more fun to listen to music while driving.
