Just got one of the Pyle speakers from the States too for £16.45.

Will probably fit it next weekend.

Amazon will not let me ship it to the UK, anyone had this problem? I see it has magically appeared on the UK site at £88! Could someone else see if they can past the address stage.

Had to trawl through a few sellers before I ordered 4... just had a conformation of £22 each delivered as long as the duty doesn't smack me.
I will have 2 spares if anyone wants them? £22 + delivery at cost.

Hi gt paddy. I also had the same problem as the linked seller on Amazon.com didn't ship to uk, but just do a fresh search on there and it brings up a few other sellers and I think it's either the first or second seller on the list has cheap shipping, I think it was about $14 and the speaker was about the same as the shipping, So works out at the £16.75 total. I received mine last week, not installed yet though. But yeah that confused me too

Fitted it today, and yes a definite improvement on the original!

The fitting was a bit more involved on my car, as I have roll-over hoops fitted. They prevented the removal of the speaker cover as the angle piece over hangs it, so had to remove them first which was a bit of a PITA!

Other than that though, a pretty easy job.I prised the spade connectors out of the OE block piece so I could then plug the leads straight onto the speaker.

Thanks for the head-up Leeoh!

I got mine straight through Amazon.com without a problem. Strange...

folks,

to those of you who are having issues getting it direct from amazon.com themselves, do you have an amazon.co.uk account ?

If no, thats almost 100% certain I'd bet the reason why. If yes, can't explain it.

88GBP on amazon.co.uk someone is taking the perverbial there thats for sure ! nice speaker though it is not worth paying that for sure

I have a UK account and some of the sellers won't ship to the UK or they will at expensive dosh! At £22 a punt I happy to take a risk on the four, fit two in the Spiders and if no one wants the spares I will make a sub for the Cup ;-)

Please can someone put an updated link for it. All the ones I keep trying have massive shipping rates. Many thanks!

I am not sure if they have cottoned on to this but to P&P has now got silly. I even setup a new Amazon.com account and the P&P is still $48 even from JB Tools Sales. Anyone got any other ideas?

Amazon.com : Pyle PLPW6D 6-Inch 600 Watt Dual 4 Ohm Subwoofer : Vehicle Subwoofer Systems : Car Electronics

Where i ordered mine, under £17 inc p+p. Only a few left

And apart from the wiring connectors it really is a straight swap with the old one.

Thanks for this link, it just worked for me at £16.45! The link on page one wouldn't ship to the UK. Very odd!

I just ordered mine and this was the price I paid too.

Anyone that has already fitted it got any thoughts on the sound quality etc?

Can confirm these are still available as I just ordered one this morning at £16.84 total. I had an existing Amazon account and just searched for 'Pyle 6 inch dual coil'.

+1, ordered mine yesterday, and received despatch confirmation yesterday evening!

BTW I had to log onto Amazon.com, rather than Amazon.co.uk

Fitted mine today into the spider. Took about 20 mins all in to fit (including making wiring adaptors)

I must say along with the Fli 5x7s I fitted to the front earlier in the year the sound system is a massive improvement.

btw the Fli speakers are on special at Halfords just now.
Halfords | FLI Integrator Coaxial 5x7" Car Speakers

So for a touch over 40 quid you can upgrade your cars crappy audio system.

Was playing some ACDC and it actually sounded proper loud.

I removed my old speaker today. Just waiting for some connectors in the post. Does it matter which side the yellow and blue wires go in?

Just to agree with everyone on the Pyle speaker as a replacement for the Alfa OEM fit part in the Spider.

Fitted today took about 30 minutes, it took longer to find the correct size Allen key!

Good service from USA, 6 days from placing order on Amazon, cost was ~£16.20. The sound quality is very good for the price even from the original Clarion HU.

Thanks for the heads up on this

P.S. Will also check out the front speakers as mentioned by Jazzy Scott to finish the job.
