    Default vectra vxr subwoofer

    Does the vectra vxr have the above, I thought the audio in the GSi was good but the vxr is night and day compared to it.

    AFAIK none of the models have anything other than bog standard speakers.

    No difference as I looked into it, they all use the same speakers.

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default

    I stripped out two vectras and found different speakers in both. The standard as in mine and improved ones in the Design I think or could be the Elite. Even the tweeters were better (still got them so I suppose I could check the part no's). So there is two types of speaker systems available and one is better than the other.

    I'm not at all impressed with the sound quality of the CD 70 in my vxr: it really winds me up that I could EITHER have decent sound quality (CDC 40) OR SatNav, which I do need sometimes (CD 70).

    It's not as if I wouldn't been prepared to pay a few extra £££ for the privilege, but the net result is that the standard sound system in my old Volvo S60 makes vxr tunes sound a bit sad.

    It's the only thing I miss about the Volvo.

    When I was working for Vauxhall kept playing with EPC but it didn't list any variants, they may have changed part number over the years though.

    Cheers guys,

    The reason i'm askin is that the gsi had good sound but when it came to playing deep bass it sounded flat, but the vxr in contrast sounds nice and deep.

    Defo a sound you wouldn't expect from the standard speakers.

    Would have to agree Voxer, well impressed with the sound quality, especially considering the rear speakers are in the doors and not the rear shelf like the Cav's used to have. Now they had a decent sound for a standard system.


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    I thought a Sub was supposed to be fitted in middle of the dash - Not that I've ever noticed one in mine
