916 Spider rear speaker size / Upgrade Options

Hello All,
I'm wanting to change the rear speaker in my 1999 Spider, it's just not very good and has little or no bass. Has anyone upgraded it already or know the spec/size of it?

I could possibly put an amp in there as its right next to the battery and then a nice subwoofer but am not sure of how the existing standard wiring is set up and what I would need to do to adapt the existing setup, and theres not a great deal of space in there. Anyone already upgraded this speaker in the cubby-hole behind the seats??

Cheers! : )

The rear speaker is a dual cone, with inputs from the head unit rear L&R channels and the std speaker is not a subwoofer

Do a search on this forum for "rear speaker" or "subwoofer" that will provide the info you want with some options

After recommendations on here, I replaced mine with a speaker from US Amazon.com $18 delivered to UK but that was a couple of years ago. A recent thread talked about this speaker. Edit: the speaker is in link on previous post

Sorry can't easily find the posts & links on my iPhone

Thanks guys that's awesome. Some good options there, it seems the rear speaker is an odd size so I might try and squeeze a larger one in there with an amp.. Seems strange that a such a nice car has a really poor sound system as standard..Especially in a soft top where the system needs to be better for those roof-down days : )
