Re: Factory fitted sound system
When I started with my sound upgrade, I changed my front speakers for Focal Polyglas nitruguy has recommended. Later I switched my HU for Blaupunkt Los Angeles MP74, But I can say changing the speakers was more noticeable step forward than changing the headunit. The new headunit works much better at higher volume levels, but listening with lower volume, you couldn’t tell big difference.
The sound much improved when I calibrated my new blaupunkt with the included microphone. This was probably the biggest change in sound quality as the HU adjusted the equalizer according to car interior acoustics. This feature really works.
For the beginning I would recommend you changing your front speakers and applying some good quality sound damping in the front doors. You will see later If you still want something more.
