    Hi all. I have a 98 clk comp and have changed my head unit and the speakers cannot handle the stereo. Can the speakers be upgraded and how big a job is it to remove old speakers / door cards etc..... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Anything can be done, hopefully easier in your car than it is in a W204!

    Adaptors for the front will allow you to fit any 165mm aftermarket speakers.

    clk speaker adaptors | eBay UK

    For the rear you can propably make some yourself from 19mm MDF (I did for my 202).

    But have you thought about fitting a sub? Without having to handle all the bass the existing speakers MAY sound a lot better, and the bass certainly will.
