I installed my new alpine speakers tonight, must say they were just what I was looking for and a straight forward fit onto the connecters and screw holes. The old original ones were a bit fragile so I thought I'd treat myselfBig grin

£31 of eGay. I'm now looking into some rears and just bought some alpine tweeters with crossovers. I'm not really into sound systems but just want some good sound quality (the originals are good enough) and thought you can't go wrong with alpine really.

Can anyone recommend some good rear speakers- not 6 x 9'sNo and preferably alpine? Will be looking for a decent head unit at some point aswell.

Here's what I have put in mine. Alpine type E in the doors, a pair of type S speakers and tweeters in the shelf and a set of tweeters in the mirror pods. An alpine Vpower amp and an alpine type r sub woofer. It's sounds brilliant and does not weigh as much as other more typical set ups.

These are the ones in my picture above no? Wink

Aaron6, that is the sort of set up I'm going for but a bit more stealth I think. Just installed some tweeters up front on the mirror covers but am now thinking they would have been better on the A pillar Dunno

I'm also not sure weather to keep the original head unit or go for an aftermarket alpine one. I'm doing some body work prepping at the mo so won't be back on the stereo for a bit yet. All fun and games....

I got an alpine but I replaced it for a Sony as the alpine was a bas**rd to get sounding right. The alpine has all that time delay for each speaker nonsense. A pillar is slightly better bit if your after stealth it ain't gonna look right.
I can't recommend the sub enough though, it punches like my mates 15" kenwood and takes up less than half the room.

FWIW you don't really need rear speakers. Sub yes. Good fronts and sub and you're done.

I've got a pair of great JBLs but the magnet was too deep. They might go in the back, I haven't looked at that yet.

Speakers on the parcel shelf with a sub will distort. The air movement/pressure from the sub/subs will push up the rear speakers forcing them to stay extended for longer.
You are better off getting some flat rear quarter cards from earlier models and putting speakers there.

The alpine type s components aaron has come with 5mm spacers when you buy them new. You can open up the door and door card ( ten mins per side ) and fit them to the front as that is what i did with mine.
I had these bi-amped from my profile 4.

For those of you that dont know what bi-amp is....
Ditch the crossovers that come with the speakers. Using a 4 channel amp put the 2 mids on front left and right and the 2 tweeters on rear left and right. You can really fine tune a system this way.

Then i ditched the alpines and went with some rainbow components powered from a genesis profile 4 amp.
I have 2x 12" pioneer subs in custom 1.5" thick pine boxes running from a vibe monoblock.

I use a alpine CDA-9855 which has every bit of correction you would ever need.
