Upgrading speakers in a Mercedes ML


Standard Member
I have a 2001 Mercedes ML320 which had the base stereo installed (Audio 10 radio/ cassette and 4 speakers). I assume it's the same system on most Mercs of the same vintage... I have upgraded the head unit to a Kenwood KDC-BT61U, and am still dissappointed with the sound. I'm keen to upgrade the speakers, and there are a few ways to go:
  • Drop in new speakers into the existing holes - any suggestions/ how easy is it to get to them?
  • Add a subwoofer - my head unit has an out for a sub, but wiring will obviously be tricky
  • Add new front speakers/ and seperate tweeters into the front - is it easy to find space in the door panel/ get it off?
  • Do both of the last 2
Does anyone have any suggestions as to speakers I copuld use? Looking for a project over Xmas on a tight budget - may scour ebay for speakers!

Thanks for any help!
