Can anyone confirm the speaker sizes in the W245?
I think they are 16.5cm in the front doors
Either 10cm or 13cm in the rear doors.
Not sure about the central dash mounted speaker?

Front mid range speaker is 6.5", tweeter about 1" (components)
rear door is 5.25" co axial

Unless you have HK there isnt a centre channel speaker fitted.

Have a look at these kits;

Stunning results and we make sure you get the right speakers for the car, dynamat and instructions on how to install them. My A class is fitted with morels if you want to come and have a listen to them.

Haha maybe I don't have HK then.... not too sure unless I get my ear up close or pop that top grill off ;p


Front 16.5cm
rears 13cm


Got it thanks.


Thanks for the help, the front speakers are components also called 2-way is that correct, with a built in tweeter?


Those Morels are too pricey for what I'm after thanks.

What's the best way to tackle getting the grills off the front and rear door speakers?

So I found some tools, managed to get the front speaker cover off, but it's not straight forward to easily un screw the speaker to remove it.

Component speakers have seperate tweeters. Decent coax speakers have a tweeter but it is mounted in the middle of the main speaker - i.e both are 2-way. Cheap (old) speakers just have a single speaker and are thus rubbish at high frequencies as no separate tweeter.

You have to take the door-card off, not the speaker grill.


Cheers

Thanks Richard and Alfie, I just attempted getting the door card off... Little tricky but I reckon with some more time I can do it cheers.

Just ordered some new JBL front speakers and Kenwood rears speakers.

Front Speakers - One clip on the door edge, two torq screws behind the grab handle panel and lots of little tab clips all round the door.
Rear Speakers - same as above but without the door edge clip.

I'll post some photos up once I do it properly to help others in the future.

I had to admit defeat and pay a specialist to change over my speakers... it's pretty hard to get the door cards off without the proper tools.. I only had a cheap set of trim tools from Ebay which weren't up to the job... the tools the shop used were pretty heavy duty in comparison.... and mainly comprised of a grip tool that when squeezed by hand opened the other end... would've been impossible without this tool.

Also... the stock speakers are riveted in place.... so they can't be unscrewed as I would've thought with a screwwdriver... they need drilling out which just adds an extra layer to the job.
All 4 speakers took 2 and half hours.... which equates to an all day job for me no doubt.
The new speakers give a huge improvement in sound all running off the standard Audio 20 CD Headunit
Here's the pictures of the job

Door card off, just disconnect the door handle cable and electric window connection

Here's the 3 rivets holding each speaker in place, these need drilling out
