    Exclamation Standard Vauxhall speakers

    I have recently upgraded to a decent head unit in my vehicle with a higher watt output than the standard system. Can anyone tell me how many watts the standard Vauxhall Astra G speakers put out please.

    Thanks

    Are you frightened that if you turn up your new stereo that you will blow your standard speakers? Don't worry Vauxhall speakers do take quite a thrashing before they will blow, However I will estimate they have at 20watts RMS power handling maybe more
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!

    Standard ones arent too bad for general in-car listening and as said, can take a fair bit of hammering to blow.

    Mite want to upgrade if you're planning on impressing friends in a car park though

    as above - std issue speakers are actually quite good

    they are just let down by the attrocious head units (and internal amps) fitted as standard

    as Reece says above though, if u wanna crank up the bass or impress some chavs innit then dont expect any miracles lol

    What ive done, ive turned down the Bass coming from the speakers, this allows me to turn the terble and mid tones up higher so i can turn the music up louder without blowing the speakers..... i also have a sub for my bass =)

    yeh I've always rated standard astra speakers very highly, sound much better than alot of other marques efforts IMO.

    I have them really loud powered by an Alpine head unit, but I have the bass turned down quite alot because I have a small sub in the car as well, and they sound fine

    Still, 3rd party speakers will sound better, even without an amp...I know going from OEM to £50 Pioneer components 6.5 years ago made a big difference to the sound quality...

    That's exactly what I've done with my standards (Blaupunkt aren't they?) - It sounds pretty good IMO! Just don't go mad with raising the top end frequencies ....
