    New Front Speakers for MK3 Astra? Which ones?

    I seriously need some new front speakers for my MK3, they are starting to distort

    What should I get for around £50-60 and will they go into the MK4 when I get one? (13cm btw)

    I have some JBL's for sale £40 for the pair. Came out of my MK3, with adaptors etc.

    Not going to put them in the Mk4, as the standard speakers are damn good.

    What model number are they?

    Are they coax?

    How old?

    A bit wary of buying second hand speakers :?

    All boxed?

    mattyp, they are

    JBL GT6.0c MKII

    I've had them for around 2 years. They are a very punchy speaker. Fit stright into your front door.

    Still think i've got the boxes

    Are they coax? :?:

    Coax is the type of connection, I thought that was what was in the mk3's?

    Also ive been looking around and JBL's seem to be around £37 brand new with the adapter costing around a tenner.

    So I might as well buy new

    Thanks

    re: New Front Speakers for MK3 Astra? Which ones?

    Fair play to you m8, if you can get them for that price. I don't blame you.

    Just to clarify yes, they are coax.

    I've had a look myself and the equivalent componant seems to be priced at around the £70-£80 mark.

    Oh sorry I didnt realise yours were components ops:

    I really wasnt looking to get components as you really need an amp to get the best out of it.

    Also yesterday I realised I had knocked the connection off the rear left speakers, which caused an imbalance in the system and caused the front left speaker to distort. Now its all hooked up again, its back to my high standards

    Cheers though
