Re: anyone recommend good speakers?

I replaced my front 5x7 with Infinity speakers (also 5x7) however they are not 5x7 ! They have a larger outer casing and some slight mods of the original housing was necessary, also the magnets on the original is miniscule any replacements will be a tight fit, I would recommend to remove one to ensure replacement are as near as possible to the correct size to avoid aggro.

Rears are 6.5 and an easy replacement, size problems are easy to fix, you may need however to space them up as the magnet again on the originals are tiny so replacements are often deeper.

I bought a small 1' tweeters and simply replaced the casing with the original Alfa ones so all looks stock.

You can try these :-

and of course ebay.

Re: anyone recommend good speakers?

For the front, I use a pair of Infinity 5012i:

... in a pair of these:

Perfect fit, and excellent sounding. I'd avoid any 5x7" speakers, as there just isn't enough room in the standard cutout to fit them in without some modifications.

Rear speakers aren't too important, as all you really hear is the reflected sound off the window, which makes them all sound pretty much the same by the time it gets to your ears. It's not a good location for speakers, so they don't have to be too fancy. Any 6.5" speaker should fit, e.g. the Infinity 6512i:

I use Alpine's SPS-17C2 in mine:

... although the Infinity ones would have done just as well.

Defo use some focal polyglass v2 components,they make a slim version (VSLIM) . Awesome quality and will fit in the doors no problem with some adaptors. use some dynamat also to get the best performance. These speakers sound better then some sets costing twice as much.

Can I take it that the front speakers in a Spider are the same as a GTV?
