Gadget, your a bad influence on me mate, but i thank you for it anyway ;-)

Ok, ive taken a shine to your new sound system install. But i have to ask, how does the overall sound compare, now you have both front and rear speakers set up, compared to stock?

Is it mega better, a bit better, or some other description other than mine lol.

The rears made a big difference, but that was because I'm carting my son around in the back and he wanted to listen to some phat choons or experience Maya Jama's bangers or something ;) so it meant I didn't need to have the stereo at ear bleeding volume for front occupants. Seemed to make the sounds as a whole feel richer in the car, so I'd definitely recommend adding rear speakers.

The fronts are less noticeable and probably only worth it to scratch any completionist itch you might have. Slightly fuller sound, but not a huge difference - although I don't tend to have my volume at window rattling levels, so it might benefit things more at higher volume. For £45-ish it seemed a fun way to spend an hour.

Sorry to bother you yet again Gadget. Ive been looking for 13cm speakers, and I found these:

But will they fit, as they dont have screw holes in like your ones.

Sorry no idea, have only seen the Pioneer ones used. Whatever you go for, I can recommend Caraudiodirect.co.uk as a supplier, have used them loads over the years, but double check their eBay listings, as they're often priced lower than their website and have free p&p.

Nice1 Gadget. Ill stick with poineer then i think. Also may go for the under seat bass speaker for a bit of low end vibe.

That's essentially what my system is but with a hefty hu. It doesn't disappoint unlike the factory kit.

Will do the front doors and panels behind the rear speakers as well, possibly the floor under the rear bench.

I have lots of holes where insulation can be mounted, but no, just the painted surface.
Am I missing something? No kit listed in the Accessories list, UK or AUS. :(

Edit: Someone will ask the "Why" question, they always do. Well, I do a battery resting voltage check each Saturday at 11:00 and have this big naked painted surface in my face!




Non on the underside of the bonnet, George.

I am sure I have seen some Gen 3 with a clip on panel of thick "felt" material, perhaps even mine when I got it??

I have thought about adding something like a felt insulating mat to mine but honestly it runs that quiet that noise isn't an issue, not like if it were a diesel. After that it just traps heat under the bonnet and adds unnecessary weight, so why bother?
