    You'll need somthing like this:

    get them HERE for £11 (its an autoleads part, so you could get these in halfords too).

    However, you will need to sort out the wiring too... two options really, depending on whether or not you want to use new wiring:
    >New wiring: If you are running these from an amp, then ofcourse you will need to sort out wiring the amp to the corssover box, and that box to the tweeter and the woofer. (Fair bit of work involved in that! Ask if you need more info). Same sort of thing applies if you want to use new wiring and your headunit amp... wire the headunit speaker outputs to the cross over.
    >Standard wiring: If you want to run them off your existing headunit directly, then you can use the standard wiring, but will still need some adaptation. You will need to add spade terminals to the wires comming from the tweeter, as it will come with bare wires. Also, you will need to cut the terminal off the standard astra wiring for the woofer and put a new pair of female spades on there, as the layout of the terminals on the back of the new speaker will not accept the fixed block on the end of the standard wire. You will also lose the use of your cross over if you use the standard wiring.

    I've done a fair bit of in car hifi work over the last couple of years, so I think all that advice is ok. But I welcome corrections!

    Let us kno how u get on, and give us a shout if u need anymore info
