Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.
Suppliers/Dealers or anyone selling with a commercial view in mind CANNOT post here unless responding to a specific request of a member in a "wanted" post.
Suppliers include people "breaking for spares" on a regular basis, when purchasing spares members should ask a supplier what they contribute to the running of the forum particularly if contacted by a Private Message
Suppliers or Members who have contributed to the forum can be identifed by the
Speakers,Subs and Stereos
Any help greatly appreciated
What is common across all ages is the poor standard speakers. Uk only gets front speakers, but the factory location for both front and rears speakers limits the size you can fit. If you want the best sound reproduction relocation of the speakers to door cards etc may allow better sizes to be fitted. From memory if you are lucky 5" is as big as you can go in the standard locations, more likely 4inch. The good news is that even though the rear speakers are not fitted they are cabled from the head unit.
If you stick to standard speaker locations your are going to need some form of base unit in my opinion, as you say maybe under seat.
I cant offer any suggestions on this but will read any offered with interest.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Hello said Florence (silver gv 2.4 2013)
All original stuff must go. First a 2Din Pioneer AVH 3700 something DAB.
then changed the front set to two way with small tweeters on the dash top, Later changed the bass elements to JBL 5 or 6" mid bass down front.
I cut holes in the kick plates.
Rear sides i bought some cheap but almost OK 4" off ebay.
You should get 5" inside with some work.
And I have a way too cheap ~40£ bass box under the passenger seat.
All helps, but i regret buying all the cheap stuff. Typically me trying to save money but end up throwing it away after a while just to buy better stuff
Only thing I am pleased with is the JBL's and the Pioneer head unit.
2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 235 BFG MT, 2" Trailmaster, 17%/87% high/low gears.
I’ve wired up 2 cameras to it too, one into the high level brake light that looks at my trailer and one at the number plate as a proper backup camera
Front speakers I left as 10cm and fitted vibe speakers and the rear I fitted 16cm jbl 2 ways. I had to trim the opening a bit to get them to fit but they work well
As for the slim subs I don’t know, I put in an alpine type r twin voicecoil 10inch boxed sub that I had from a previous car. It sounds great at low as well as high volume.
The CarPlay unit is great but no DAB, the newer sph da230dab might be of interest. But I’m not sure the newer radio can run pioneers app radio functions, I’ve got a obd2 WiFi dongle and via the DashCmd app on my phone I can display live engine info on the pioneer screen. It’s just a funky gadget.
If I can help you out with facia part numbers etc just let me know. Here’s an inks pic of my radio install. I really like how neat the pioneer can be fitted.
I put Halfords Edge speakers of standard size in the standard location and they were crap. So I upgraded to Pioneer 3 ways but they too are crap.
I had Alphasonics in my old Jimny and for their size and location they were ok. With rears I think they would have been good.
Given it's been a rough and ready off roader with a whining Rocklobster and Humming Malatesta Kaiman tyres it's not been worth investing in but I've spent more time in it this year. I've been looking at quieter tyres and transfer box, so would then want to resolve the stereo situation.
I therefore read this with interest.
