    Default Pioneer Speakers as replacements.

    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone had fitted PIONEER TS-Q172C speakers as replacements for the standard setup.

    I have a 2007 elite with the CD70 navi and I'm thinking about changing the speakers front and back for these, wondered if anyone had an opinion.
    I like the idea that they are standard fit replacements.

    It's having a Parrot MKi9200 fitted Tuesday so hopefully it will sound pretty good the the ipod!

    Cheers
    Ian

    Hi mate,

    I asked the exact same question last week. I'm running with more or less the same set-up ( CD30 with Parrot MKi9200 ).

    Seemingly the sound quality will improve by changing them to the Pioneer speakers, but probably not significantly.
    I was told that you'd really need to upgrade the Headunit.

    The question is whether its worth the £200 upgrade for a small to medium improvement in the sound quality.

    IMO there is a good enough and loud enough sound from the speakers using the Parrot.

    Cheers Mate,

    You kind of confirmed my thoughts, i'm going to hold off on the speakers until after the Parrot is installed and see what the ipod sounds like, i know the Parrot has a seperate amp for the ipod.

    I'll keep you posted!

    cheers
    Ian

    I dont know about that model but I have some 5.25 speakers fitted to mine which are Pioneer front and back and although smaller than the original speakers, the quality is superb even with the bass.

    Don't hold off too long... its definately worth the work.
