I think you have a rather larger problem to sort before even considering speakers Stan

Nothing wrong with that mate, at 131dB I need some decent speakers to be able to enjoy both my music and the music made by the engine. LOL

That must be absolutely unbearable.

I was a chav when I was 19 and had a 4" Magnex on mine. Bought one last year with a 4" magnex on it and just idling it did my f**king head in. How I lived with it I will never know.

How do you get on with track days?

    Alpine SXE-1725S fits your criteria. They are a decent upgrade for a very reasonable price. There are other options that fit, but the mounting depth is a limitation.

    I've got them front and rear. Initially I hesitated as I thought that decent speakers should cost more, and was looking for more expensive options, but I'm glad I went with these. For my experience fitting them and a review from an audio website see post no 34 on the link below:

    No they are not £60 per pair except at Halfords. Most other places they are £30 a pair.

    Mik, do the SXE-1725S fit in the parcel shelf baskets? I've got a set of Type S fitted but had to chuck the baskets due to the depth of the speakers.

    They were definitely a drop-in fit, no mods necessary. Parcel shelf baskets are intact.

    SXE1725S mounting depth is 46.5mm according to: http://www.talkaudio.co.uk/index.php/index.html/_/reviews/speakers/alpine-sxe-1725s-r788/

    Nice one. Think I Type S I have are slightly too heavy for the parcel shelf anyway.

    Ive got Focal 165VBs up front and 165A1s in the back and it sounds great. Fronts need 10mm spacer rings (CAS sell them for £13) and its a fantastic setup. Recommend sound deadening the doors though because they are bassy unless you have a sub and can turn down the bass on your HU. Really do need to be amped though to get the best out of them.

    These are different, Alpine SPG-17C2 with 60w RMS compared to 40w RMS of the SXE1725S, but they also have a 61mm mounting depth which is probably too deep to mount without mods to the factory speaker locations in a 306. Would sound good though.

    Is the SXE1725S the same speaker for both the parcel shelf and the doors?

    So along those lines I would need 4 identical speakers? I though they were a different size for the doors. Dunno

    Not different sizes on my P2.5 Rallye.

    I have got 4 identical Alpine SXE1725S speakers in my car, no mods required to speaker enclosures.

    They use the same screw holes as the factory speakers both front and back.

    One mod I did make though is to drill an additional screw hole in the door skin, as the front factory speakers are held in with 3 screws, but not evenly around the edge (see photo below), leaving the 6 o'clock position out (although the factory speakers have a hole there, but there is not one in the door skin). The extra hole (30 seconds work per side) means the speaker is secured evenly around its circumference at the 12 - 3 - 6 - 9 o'clock locations, which will improve the sound for even flexing of the speaker and remove the likelihood of buzzing from the unsecured bit vibrating against the skin.
