Gonna have a look at speakers for the car tomorrow. Wanting to get a set of components :

http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/product/products_id/4697.html

What size are the standard door speakers and tweeters?
How easy is it to replace speakers?
How easy is it to replace tweeters?

Also thinking about putting a set of speakers on parcel shelf (not 6x9's) - is this a good idea and if so what size would you recommend?

There will be a sub in boot eventually so don't want anything thats gonna interfere with that.

I'm not that clued up on ice but I can offer advice on fitting the speakers. Once you get your doorcards off it's literally a case of just unscrewing the screws, unplugging the speaker and fitting the new one in IIRC.

I dont know what components are, but if its splits that you are talking about, for the front door, the corsa takes 4" - 5". You can increase that size with spacers. Plastic works best.

I used to have a sub in mine, but i blew it

If u are going to put a sub, make sure u upgrade the big three
batery to chasis
alternator to battery positive
alternator to battery negative

or else u will find that the battery will get drained more when the engines off and the lights dim more on low bass notes

I think it depends what you want them for, I've got 6X9's in my parcel shelf, admittedly they don't sound as good as my Infinity components up front, but they are only used for "rear fill" so theres a bit more than just bass coming from the back of the car. I've stopped the deeper frequencies going to the 6X9's by selecting one of the filters (low pass or high pass I can't remember lol) on the amp. I've also got them set so you hear virtually all the mid range and treble coming from the components up front, but if you're in the back you get more than just the sub blasting you in the back lol. I've heard people say that 6X9's interfere with subs, but I can't say I've noticed any conflicts, even at high volumes with deep bass.

If you want excellent speakers, get a set of these and fix them into your parcel shelf lol
