    speakers in convertible

    i was wondering if anyone could recommed some good speakers to replace the ones i have up front because they are starting to crackle. i have a pair of FLI integrators in another car would they be any good?

    also, i may replace the rears too for better quality. i have some oxygen free cable to use so may route that while i have the speakers out.

    also, i have a 12 inch sub with an amp(sorta pointless in a convertible, eh) but i was thinking of amping the front and rear speakers. has anyone done this in a convertible? how did they run the cable so it wouldnt catch on the roof mechanism? any help would be appreciated as im an absolute noob with astras and ive never had a convertible before this.

    I already had the wiring in my astra cab when i bought it but its defo worth having a sub as once you get it sounding right its worth it as i love the bass lol. Also let me know how you get on replacing the rear speakers as its a right arse getting the rear quarters out.

    If you're going to pvs you're more than welcome to see my setup if it helps you at all.

    I haven't got any of my boot install as its not very impressive to look at. I have 2 bass boxes that i made myself and 2 10" subs running a 1000w amp. All the speakers inside the car are standard and it sounds great.

    photos of what mate?

    i was thinking of just removing the rear speakers, putting in 6x9's by changing the place for them, get my FLI's hooked up in the front, oxygen free cable all round and then amp the lot.
