As I cant hack the parcel shelf to bits in my company MY00 saloon without getting demoted to tea boy, I need some direct replacement front and rear speakers which will fit exactly into the existing spaces. I can then swop them out when I change for a MY03 Corolla!!!

I've got a Pioneer head unit and cd changer, so quite like the Pioneer range, which are pretty resonable at Looking at something like the TS-H1702s 160w for 55.

Can anyone confirm the size/shape of the front/rears and whether stuff can be fitted without having to hack the car to bits.

Don' know if this helps, but I had some Infinity Reference components fitted in my WRX ( a direct replacement in the doors plus tweetwers stuck on the dash ) I also had the rear shelf hacked and some MB Quart 6x9's fitted. This setup sounds really nice with my pioneer head unit and cd changer. You could refit your front speakers when you get rid and put some cheap 6x9's in the holes in the back. I'm sure no-one would notice! Leicester Car Electronics did the work for me and were pretty reasonable. The whole lot including the pioneer stuff cost under 600 fitted.

I have a pair of JBL GTO603s (65 quid) for some cheap and cheerful rear fill. They slot in v. v. snugly indeed.

In the door panels I've got MB Quart DSC216's - They're a little bigger (had to drill a few extra holes behind the door inserts)

hope this helps

I've installed JBL GT6.0c Mk2 in a few cars (2 MY99 and 1 MY00 GT's), direct fit, great bang for the buck.

It's a 2-way component system that fits directly, no drilling needed.

Thumbs up

I liked the Pioneer speakers as well, and opted for the TS-C1620 which are 16cm components. Sound is really good and they are around 120 from Edworthys (watch though - they have the wrong graphic against them - the speaker cone material is metallic silver with 5-blips on it).

They fitted straight in with only some trimming of the plastic shield to get the magnets past them (oh, and somewhere nearby to mount the crossover units), and the tweeters can be mounted behind the door handles where the empty 'tweeter' grills are.
