    Default Vectra C 2008 SRI Speaker Upgrade?

    Hi All,

    I have a 2008 SRI With standard cd player installed and wondered whether it would be worth upgrading the speakers to better ones like infinity?

    Or would it not improve much unless i changed the head unit?

    thanks,

    It would be better to change the Head unit, the amplifiers in the standard vx units aren't that powerful compared to aftermarket head units. Plus with the aftermarket head units you can set the frequency range. But choosing the brand of the aftermarket head units is also important to get the best sound from your standard speakers.

    You'll notice a big difference with uprated speakers over standard....although as hothatch says, a headunit upgrade will also work wonders, but with just a head unit change, your limited the the sound produced by the standard speakers.

    Plus standard speakers possibly wont take the power of many of todays head units.

    I'm looking at changing factory door speakers also. However so far the custom fit choice is a bit limited, and big money. There's plenty of standard fits around, but apparently an adaptor ring is needed and has to be fairly specific. I'm just wondering though, is it possible to perhaPs pull off the mounting ring from the factory speakers? Anyone shed any light on that?

    Also I'm led to believe 6.5" can also be fitted into rear doors with a little fiddling. Is that right?

    Takes 6.5 inch speakers as standard in all the doors anyway if I remember right.

    Pioneer make an upgrade kit for the Vectra C and a fair few members on here have fitted them. Might be worth putting up another question asking what people think of them. As far as I know they're a pretty good upgrade. You'll end up with rear tweeters too I think if you don't have them yet.

    No fiddling required, all four doors are 6.5" as standard in the Vec C
