    New Components £100 Budget

    Hey

    One of my speakers has started distorting and cutting in and out, no interest in fixing it as this gives me an excuse to upgrade

    Have a budget of about £100 for the speakers and adapters etc, just looking to upgrade the front component speakers so any recommendations would be great, mainly for sound quality and they wont be amped, just ran off my pioneer DEH-P65BT head unit.

    How easy are they to fit, im sure it will all be pretty straight forward when i get the door cards off (can do that no problem) but anything specific i should know would be great.

    Sound deadening, i dont want to go over the top and spend loads of money or spend loads of time doing it, but i would like to do some, how much would i need to spend to get a noticable difference and where should i put it.

    Also where should i order from, only place i really know of is car audio direct and ebay.

    Cheers.

    the minimum sound deadening you could get away with for any noticeable difference is a decent sized square around where your speaker mounts to ON THE FRONT AND BACK of the metal. And possibly one piece of sound wave diffuser behind each speaker
    Coupe now being broken for parts
    You know the one

    Enquire within

    Cheers for the replies, ill have a look about for alpine and see what i can get, ideally i would want to order them this weekend so i would get them early next week so i may have to buy new and those speakers are about £150 new which i don't really want to have to spend.

    Dave which sound deadening should i go for as i know certain types have different properties.

    Cheers.

    Cheers, not a bad price either. I know they should be straight forward to fit but i have seen some tweeters that need(?) to be mounted and some dremeling is required or is this just what some people do for better imaging and the tweeters will be just fine set in the oe position.

    Cheers.

    If you were looking at more specialist stuff I'd be looking at DLS components like the B6A's, Rainbows like the SL's but people argue that they are very bright sounding
