What are the speakers like in the type-r.?
Was just wondering as i do like my music.Has anyone upgrgraded theres.
When i get mine i will be considering changing the speakers for direct replacement/component ones.I dont want to rip the car appart,just enhance whats already there and maybe a small amp under my seat...
Also just realised this is in the wrong place.Sorry

What are your opinions?

Cheers

ian

To be 100% honest, i dont think the speakers in the type r are that good. If you want any "bass" get a sub / amp or what ever. I dont generally blast my music, so i just make do. But that was one thing that surprised me with this car was that the speakers in my fiesta were better then in the type r. But hey, thats just my opinion, im sure someone out there will say the exact opposite.

They are pitiful, truth be told. The magnets are weasly and the range is poor.

I would strongly advise that IF you do upgrade the speakers - also consider upgrading the head unit, you will not see a great difference if you upgrade the speakers alone.

Did you get this installed in Bristol or was it a DIY job???

Is it easy enough to wire an amp to the headunit???
