    Question Is it worth it???

    Hey Guys,

    I have been thinking about replacing all 4 speakers in my coupe with Kenwood speakers. Not decided which Kenwood speakers yet. However the standard ones sound quite good. I really can't make up my mind if its worth replacing them or not. Have many of you guys replaced them or just left them?

    Replace - yes. Kenwood - No. You can do loads better without spending a fortune! Don't forget the tweeters too, so more thanjust 4.

    I went for a set of JBL components up front, cost me £55 from Motor World, reduced from a ton.

    they're shite. imo

    They make Head Units (and toasters) speakers arent what they're good at. JBL however, dont make Head Units, they make speakers. All about specialising IMO. But the real truth is in the pudding, have a listen to a set of Kenny's against a set of gerbils (JBL), or any other decent speaker for that matter you'll hear for your self what is best.

    Voted No, Just coz IMO they are perfectly good speakers

    But if your going to do it i would recommend Vibe speakers, had vibe componants in my old corsaa c and thought they were top notch!
