    Default Upgrading speakers

    I have the CD70 navi headunit in my car and was thinking of upgrading speakers. Before i possibly waste money is it even worth upgrading speakers on a standard headunit. Not wanting to spend massive amounts of money, just want to improve sound quality.

    Well I upgrade everything, but I fitted a pair of JBL components to my dads on the standard CD30 and he was over the moon!!

    Just don't expect it to go twice as loud instantly. You will likely get a good increase in quality, and a little more bass. The vauxhall speakers are not bad for what they are, but they are cheap.

    There are loads of ICE enthusiasts on here, so why not post up your price range and people can make recomendations.

    This would be my recomendation; http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/180W-2WAY-6-5-...f#ht_565wt_905

    You will need these as well or make your own from wood; http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...ht_1608wt_1199

    Those adapters say vectra's up to 02 but they can be made to fit. I can't find any for the c.

    As I said, definately worth changing on the CD30, but I do not know about the CD70? Stick to the big names; Alpine, JBL, Fusion, MTX, Mutant, Kenwood, Focal etc...
