    Default CDR2005 - Is it worth upgrading the speakers?

    Just wondered what upgrades people have done while sticking with the CDR2005?

    Are the upgrades worth while?

    Is the poor sound quality more down to the CDR2005 or the speakers?

    What output is the CDR2005?

    Or should i just bite the bullet and upgrade the stereo? (Didnt want to do this as i always end up going OTT and before i know it ill have a carpc again like in my Saab).


    All advice opinions welcome.

    Thank you

    Stephen

    Alot of the time the limiting factor can be cheap speaker cable, but if I was going to replace the cable then I'd do the speakers whilst I was at it as you can get pretty good speakers for not alot of money these days.

    From what other people have said it's the CDR2005 that is the main culprit for the sound quality - the speakers are actually half-decent. They've said that when they upgraded to an after-market HU, or even one like the CCR2006, the sound was a lot better.

    All of the 5 Vauxhalls I've had, I've replaced the HU and the speakers have been fine. It's always the factory fit radio that's been the weak link.

    Both will give you a sound upgrade, but I always think that the speakers make a lot of difference. I would say definately worth it...
