What size are they? Have you measured them?

Probs need one of these

Looks like they're 13cm. I'd grab a pair of 2 ways. Actually if it were me I'd grab some 2 part components and stick the tweeter in an appropriate place, but that's probably not for you.

Alpine are nice...components here

For a simple solution:

JBL (cheap)

Alpine cheap


Alpine less cheap

Halfords is always a nice place to go and listen to some and see what you think :)

Those adaptors are for front and rear so both are 13cm.

I assume you could cut and shut existing wires, grab some blades and spades and solder them on to the existing ones.

Either that or buy an adaptor but I really see no point.

I'd grab a couple of those Alpine 2 ways. Nice sound at a fairly reasonable pricepoint and not much work. They won't crackle unless you do something stupid like crank them to full volume on the first play.

And no problems, by the way ;)

so the alpine wud fit straight into where the current speakers fit without no problem? just want to make sure before i buy anythink lol

Try it, it's easy.

With the adaptor I would think so yes, although you will have to check mounting depth as some speakers need more than car manufacturers provide.

I'd get the more expensive Alpine's, but I'm fairly fussy and any of those will be a step up I would imagine.

They shouldn't crackle, but remember they are only 13cm speakers, not subs.

yeah obv they aint gunna be able to be bassy very bassy but uno i want decent sound so hopefully some speakers will give me some lol

Hi, I have a Ford Focus 04 reg too, and upgraded my speakers all round. The speaker size in the focus are 6x8's or 5x7 which they are known by, they are a rare size, but Alpine and Infintiy do a them in that size. You would have to buy the adaptor to connect them up or just cut and shut the wire.

Ah that would make sense. The adaptor plates should change the size speakers plates in the Ford to normal 13cm, but those will most likely be much easier :p

Infinity are pretty decent speakers too

I don't think you'll need an adaptor with those mate...
