    Well it is there to bring the sound further forward in the car. It does only do the higher frequencies but is not a tweeter it goes much lower than that.

    Mine was fine but I took mine out within weeks of getting the car and thought it much better than with it. I just chucked mine. (It was a new car so it was not broken)

    If I were you I would just remove it and put a bit of tape over the connector, however just check everything works fine after, because I believe it may do the Sat nav or bluetooth voice if you have that fitted????? But you need to confirm this as mine never had these features....

    If you want it there it could be uprated. I looked into it before and I believe it is 2". However the factory one has a built in crossover to remove the bass to stop distortion on the small speaker and you would need to integrate this into any replacement speaker.

    A final consideration before you replace it (whether with a vauxhall one or not!) is that there are two types. They look the same but one has four wires because it is driven off the front speakers outputs and the other (the later radios I believe) has only two wires going to it because it is driven of a dedicated channel on the stereo. If you have the two wire one it will not work anyway if you have an after market stereo....

    Hope that helps! If not let me know....
