    Default Have I done the right thing with my speakers...

    Well.. I've had some pioneer 5.5 inch speakers lying around from christmas that i got for my ford cougar but never fitted. So mrs was pestering about fitting them to the Signum.

    The How 2 is great, I didn't take the card right off the door, just pushed it open and did the job. Well after buying new M5 screws for the autoleads adaptors as the standard ones were to small.

    Now.. the backs done and awaiting the fronts for tomorrow.. and the quality does seem better when playing REM.. however its so much quieter on each setting. I did turn it up and it does go very loud.. but the standard ones although not so good up loud are a little bassier etc.

    I'm a little worried im going to lose the bassy audio I had before. Well.. wont know until I fit the fronts tomorrow, and fiddle around with the bass and treble etc. The quality is definately better as they are pioneers. Hopefully when all 4 are fitted its the works

    Well i can safetly say after fitting the fronts today that I have lost my hearing.. however the last moments I could hear were the best quality music moments of my life

    Well I had some Pioneer 13cm (5.5inch) speakers from the mrs that were good quality for cheap price. (You can fit bigger ones in the Vectra 6 inch, but these were bought for my old car originally).

    http://www.caraudio4less.co.uk/images/TS-E1302I.jpg

    Got those.. and the adapters from ebay which cost me 27 quid with all 4 plates, plus smaller ones to fit the 5 inch speakers, the cable adapters and posting to Germany...

    Well worth it. Great mod for 100 quid!

    I haven't amped mine and they go really really loud! So god knows how loud they would go if amped. Its an easy job.. just a little fiddly. And u need to buy some M5x13mm mini screws as the standard ones are to wide at the head for the adapters
