    Default Upgrading speakers?????

    Time to upgrade my speakers. I have orginal SXi speakers which were fitted with the CD30 which is now changed to a JVC head unit. I have access to a trade breakers and would like to know which Vectra model has the best speakers to strip out. I am assuming that there are better speakers in the higher models? Or can anyone recommend replacement speakers that will fit straight in?

    I think you will find that they all use the same speakers. The only difference being the extra tweeters in the rear doors on some models to make it a 9 speaker system.

    When I changed the headunit to a Sony one, I was really impressed how good the original ones were.

    Another good option is to get a sub fitted into the boot, really makes a difference

    Can't say for definite with the Sat Nav screen, but on my SRi with the standard 3 line info screen, I keep date/time, and trip computer which works with the steering wheel controls.

    Only real hassle is changing the clock twice a year when you have to take out the HU, replace the Vx one, adjust the clock then rebuild it all!
