I just ordered a CDA-9855R, focal 130V slims, and have a K2 5 inch sub that i am going mount under the drivers seat for a little more bass, and a small Alpine 4 x 50 amp for under the passenger seat.
Like you i need the boot an dont want to go to crazy on the stereo.
The Alpine unit looks hot ! ..very nice
... Hi Richard. Im struggling with the stereo upgrade... My 225 (uk spec) came with the 6cd changer + 1 set up. and the sound is positively crap! I really want to upgrade but without changing the head unit (forbidden by wife!) Already bought a set of Alpine E-Series (the cheapo direct OEM replacement line). Only managed to change the front door speakers (not tweeters nor rear door units yet) In your opinion, the crappy OEM sound is the HU fault or the speakers?David Shearer said:
I thought so.... But promised wife I would not change the HU. She loves the "way it looks on the dash" ?!?!?! (how crazy is that!) Anyway... My plan is to change the rear speakers for the Alpine co-axials I bought already, install the tweeters, how? Dunno (they're tiny compared to the OEM´s - they just fall thru the whole) and then buy a sub... And see what happens... if sound is still crap... Ill guess Ill have another board meeting with wife...denty225 said:I swapped the headunit and kept the speakers and the sound is better, so I'd say the standard head aint upto much. Just need a sub..
