I have just fitted a JVC3101 into to replace the Ford6000 stereo, now I have the better quality sound I want to replace the rear speakers as they have obviously had better days as the crackle if I use them.

Is this a big job as I was quoted £30 a speaker to be fitted, and I could probably do it myself.

Should I attempt it??

Incidentally I was told that the standard Ford speakers are only 25w each is this right??? The stereo recomends at least 75w per speaker so should I replace the front as well???

To change speakers is not that hard thing to do. Try yourself first and if no success...

But, front speakers are the most important parts of the sound system in your car. So why to change rear speakers first? How about if you change front speakers to decent 6.5" component system and leave rear speakers as they are. Or have you already done this?

This don't matter, since you wont get over 25W from head unit amplifier. But as I already stated, I recomment to buy a component system to front and live with originals at back.

Change the fronts to better stuff and then put the front speakers into the back. If you check out the member services section you'll find my how-to. It's as easy as it looks, really! :)



Edit - cos I'm nice, here's the direct link:

I followed Oz's guide and replaced all four speakers this weekend - took me around 1.5 hours (spent time giving the various bits of the door a good clean as well!)

Cheers for the How-to! :) Very easy to do.

Glad I could help ::

I was daunted first time cos I didn't want to break anything but having done it the first time, it gets much easier - I can now have the door apart in no time at all
