    Hi everyone,

    Just got a new Sony CD/MP3 head unit for my car and want to replace the old speakers. I've a small car so so I would like just to change the two existing speakers, more for just background rather than audiophile. Not looking to spend more that £50 (it is January after all!) and totally new to the ICE stuff.

    Any recomendations for what to go for and where to buy them?

    your bass normally vanishes with speaker upgrades.
    id save and get decent speakers with adapters so when you change car the speakers come with you.

    Thanks for the replies - I've got a mate who's going to help me as he's much better at this than me. Would consider taking the speakers and head unit with me as when I sell it - juts put the old ones back in as I won't get a great deal of cash for the car!

    I've got a 96 Citroen just need enough power from the speakers to drown out the (considerable!) engine noise when on the motorway. Decent bass is something that is probably a long way down the road!

    might sound daft but why not remove panel and fit sound dynamat to the panels and kill some of the noise. Look round the front panels and see if there are any holes grommet missing.

    Thanks for that, would love to sound proof - I take it that the front panel shields the engine from pedals etc. I can then put soemthing there to help reduce the engine noise. Excuse my ignorance!

    The cheapest form of sound deadening in a car is to take up the carpets, put some ordinary carpet underlay in, and stick the carpets back - you'll be surprised at the difference.
