    You'll need adapters to fit after market speakers.

    Original speaker can be modified to fit 3rd party speakers :D

    Ok. I bought the adaptors & speakers for the front. Then I realised that the cone can be pushed out so you can use the original adaptors.

    i just loosened the cone a little. put the speaket face down then pushed the magnet. it came off easily as it was just glued on.

    The component speakers & tweeters are too big to fit the adapters I bought so I will just buy some coaxial speakers now.

    Then I will try to fit the speakers using just the original/modified speaker adaptor.

    can put up pics if anyone interested.

    (now i have to find buyers for the adapters & speakers I bought)

    You will need speaker adapter plates from a company called Autoleads, you can get them online from places like caraudiosecurity.co.uk or your local car audio specialist.

    Hi,

    Did you do a how to guide? I am going to replace the speakers in my car and would be very much interested in seeing a guide.

    I did take some pictures but dont know which computer/drive its on. the speaker does seperate from the bracket though. I will try to find it & put up. The speakers are basically glued onto the bracket. If you prize it open from the bracket then you can screw new speakers onto the original bracket. I did the rear speakers & will possible be changing the front ones tomorrow
