Its a pretty easy job, the speaker mounts took me a bit of time and i had an issue where the speaker connections were close to the door metal (the hole is small), also one issue where the connection got a bit corroded so they are now soldered and covered in shrink wrap.

i posted some pics on here.

never added an amp, i dont need it. i guess it would just need ignition power and maybe you then dont use an active sub? Dunno..

Like you I was on a mission for a cheap and cheerful install which I plan to upgrade over time. I already had an alpine deck which integrates with the steering controls and pumps out 50w/channel, so I was quite lucky in that respect.

I have opted for some 13cm coaxial speakers, they were £50 reduced to £10 because they were ex display! I have also fitted a Kenwood under seat sub in the passenger side, which fits perfectly. I have it turned up about 2/3rds of the way in terms of gain and set the crossover freq. to 110hz. I have also just put deadening in the doors.

So for £120 plus some speaker cable I had knocking around, I got a monster upgrade from stock! Makes a massive improvement. The best bang for buck has definitely been the deadening - made a massive difference.

Good mid range configuration thanks LG with one of the CD head units and the eBay wiring comes to £495 so 1% under budget Halfords locally were not much use, some Kenwood, Pioneer head units and lots of Sony was all

Just to top up the thread rather than start a new one, my DIY MDF speaker rings got damp despite sealing with many layers of PvA and I've been looking for a replacement. Just ordered an H-D polyurethane set from Modifry that they've based on their discontinued MDF ones. They look like a much better option than the Autoleads SAK-1211 that seem the only other option.
