    Hi All,

    So I fitted my old Pioneer stereo this weekend and it's much better than the previous Clarion unit, but the speakers in the Copen aren't great so i'm looking to replace them. It looks pretty easy to do, but wondering if there are any recommendations on speakers out there? Before I take half my door off, does anyone know the size/tools i'll need?

    Thanks in advance :),
    Lauren

    Hi, here some photos of my copen when i replace the old speakers with new,plus twiters(i made new holes for the twiters),you can't put bigger speakers because the window can't close,so be careful with that....

    The standard speakers are 16cm mounted by three screws.
    You can fit 16.5cm, but you'll need to make a spacer to pack out the speaker a few mm.

    Do you have a picture of your cars door, maybe open, which shows the speaker and twiter?
    BTW, they are called tweeters?:)
    Having said that your English is far better than my none existent Greek.:D

    That was a good link Adam. Even without a translation the pictures tell you a lot.

    I don't have the picture now but in the future i upload a full picture,sorry for my english...Remember that the size of the magnet speaker it matters because the window of the car can't close,i saw a lot of speakers but 2 or 3 was good for the car because the size of the magnet was to big or to small.So go to an expert if you are not soor for the result.I ve put a Kenwood source 4 x 50, 2 speakers 200 watt, twitters, crossovers, 800watt amplifier 4 channels, system protection buttery, hand made sub 400watt to fit perfect in my trunk.I ve the perfect sound(rms) so don't look the sites because they wont to sell and everybody in this world is expert....Do the most things yourself and if you have a friend work in a garage its OK and if you dont have make one.......:D:D:D

    Thanks all. Im not great at DIY let alone in a Tiny car so i may get the other half to have a look when he's there sorting the squeaky brake pedal.

    The sound is tolerable, but I'm a bit picky on how good Freddie Mercury sounds on the way to work! It does look fairly easy, did anyone need to drill new holes for the speaker mounting?

    Try to get a pair of 16cm speakers.
    If any bigger, you will find it hard to fit.
    I was lucky to buy a pair of 16cm in Japan.
