    I'd like to fit some new speakers.
    I've searched all over the place & can't fi d a definative answer to what size I need to be. It's either 16 or 16.5cm's.
    Can anyone help?

    I've fitted 17cm 3 way Sony. Yes, they are really a little too big, but using SoundX strips around the existing hole to seal it.

    The ideal was copied from smx. See this thread for more info.

    Then I installed high level tweeters on the door (£10 from Maplin!), and more recently the 8" sub in the back wall. So thats 9 cones in total :)

    Hope this help.

    Hi Adam,

    Did you ever find out the Definitive Size of Speaker?

    Not really no.
    However I bought some 16.5cm which were multi-fitment, so they had lots of hole options.
    The hole size aperture in the door was too small for the speaker to fit flush though. I had to make spacers to lift the speaker about 10mm. I also had to drill an extra hole in the speaker. Even with all the multi-fit hole options I couldn't get three to line up with the existing holes.
    Plus I used longer mounting screws.

    So I would say, to not need a spacer go for 16mm speakers with some sort of multi-fitment, but be prepared to drill holes.

    The speakers are 16cm and i couldnt find one in London.
    I bought mine in Japan last week.
    They just fit with larger washers.
