Alfa 147 speaker upgrade

Hi, i have recently purchased a 2002 alfa 147and i want to upgarde the front and rear speakers. My question is if i buy a set of componet speakers will the new tweeters fit where the old ones were, providing they are the same size.

If the answer is yes, does anyone know what size tweeters i should be looking for?

Also could anyone recommend a good set of component speakers?

Re: Alfa 147 speaker upgrade

No tweeters will fit without modification of the trim. It involves some plastic cutting. Depends on how does your new tweeter look like and what instalation options does it have. For my front tweeters I just cut off the plastic where the original tweeter is installed and fitted the grill of the new one and pushed the tweeter in from behind. See the first picture. I dont have a shot from behind.
For the rear I bougt different speakers. They were slightly larger so I had to install them in thier trays. I had to cut the hole in the trim as well.

No matter what your new tweeters look like, you will have to modify the trim. There si no exact way, depends on your speakers design.

Dont forget you need some 4cm thick spacers for the woofers too. At least you can use any 16,5cm woofer.
