Re: alfa has spoiled it!
I too think that the 147 standard head unit sounds poor. Allthough, have you tried using the "JAZZ" setting in the equalisation? This definately improved the sound produced. I don't think i'll replace the speakers, they seem good to me. I intend to replace my head unit with the Pioneer DEH-P77MP, a very good unit, with understated looks but stacks of features. For years now Pioneer have made the best tuners, fantastic reception from even weak signals and poor aerials. A company called Maystar make a set of adaptor leads so the Pioneer unit will work with the Alfa steering wheel controls, however i will loose the dash display of radio station/cd track etc.
Due to time constraints it's going to take me a long time to fit, but as soon as it's done i thought i'd post some pics of the install here.
Let us all know what you decide and maybe post some pics too.
All the best, Perc.
