Rear Speakers.... again probably

Sorry if this has been asked before but I have searched around past forums on here and other GTV site.

The rear speakers in my 99 GTV sound like they have been blown... basically, anything with a bit of bass in it sets of some sort of vibration noise!!!

So I have found out what size (6.5 inch round) they are etc, and that you just use a screwdriver to prise off cover whilst in back of car, then they should unscrew...correct?

Not sure what to buy, or what wattage I need though.... and I don't want to spend too much as I will be changing the car soon.

I have the standard Alfa head unit and Clarion CD changer... what wattage should I go for, and can anyone recommend some good value speakers? I live in Bristol.

Halfords used to do replacement Sony speakers (which are listed against car type)which are better than the ones the car comes with. The old speaker should have a wattage and an impedence marked on it(in ohms). The most important thing is to get the impedence right. If the wattage is too low you'll blow the speakers, if the impedance is too high you'll blow the amp!
On the 145, the cover prises off, and then the speakers are held with screws. Is it definitely the speakers that are blown (kind of flappy sound?) or is there something else loose in there?) Good luck

Will have a look. Thanks for info. But generally the speakers don't seem powerful enough. I get a sort of buzz whenever there is any hardish bass sound, so have now turned the bass control down very low.

It has only started recently, so this is why I thought it was the speakers.... don't necessarily think the cardboard has blown.... but they just sound like something has had it.

Seen the kenwood KFC1768s.... they seem to be what everyone is talking about for good value - between 30 - 40.
