what you wana do is get some Infinity Refrence speakers, and Dynamat inside your drivers doors. whack a small sub in the boot, and you can crank it up to 40, and its still crystal clear, sounds awesome.

only cost me about £300 as well, fitted. i duno how that compares price wise to bass works, but it certainly sounds a lot better.

I'd be interested in a reply on this too.

I had a three day test drive of the FN2 [and am now about 3-4 weeks from delivery] and one of the things that stood out was how poor the standard CD player/Speakers were.

I'm a total audiophile really, so it's very important to me that things sound right and good in my car. The stock set-up had a really fizzzy thin trebly sound and seemed devoid of low-mids and bass.

Now, I'm not one for huge bass, and certainly will not be getting any kind of woofer, but I'd be interested to hear opinions on how much of an improvement can be made just by replacing stock speakers rather than fitting a whole new system?

Has anyone done this?

yeah, that would be me again.

Literally just a replacement on the two front door speakers, same size, but spend a bit of money to get good quality ones, and new front tweeters, your pretty much set, i reckon.

Im no expert, and dont know the differences offered by different speakers, but i have had some Infinity Refrence speakers fitted in my 3 previous cars, and each time been very happy.

I did also go for some dynamat soundproofing inside the door panel, and altho this isnt necessary, it certainly made a difference.

I personally like a good thump from a Sub, so i later added a lil 10" Sub, nothing ridiculous but does make the sound nice and full. (although it was still a huge improvement over standard with just the door speakers and tweeter)

You should be able to pick up a set off e-bay, otherwise theres probably somewhere nearby you could get a buy and fit done. theres about 5 places within 5 miles of where i am, so im guessing theyre popular enough.
