  3. Head Unit & Speaker Ohms

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've recently "acquired" a slightly more featured H/U which is the same brand as the aftermarket one already in my Spider. I'm hoping for it to be a straight swap type job but I'd like to test it on the bench before finding it may have an issue. It powers up and scrolls through the menus okay...
  4. Rattling Speaker

    Alfa Giulia
    Two month in and I must say that upgrading to the Harman Kardon was the right thing to do. So much clearer than the 11 speaker system I had in the Speciale. Anyway, today my front driver door speaker started to vibrate when the radio was on. You know that kind of noise you’d get in Ann old...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know this will have been asked before, but what are the front and rear speaker sizes in the brera? (Non Bose system) I’ve read a few different threads and Have seen people say that they are either 16cm or 16.5cm in the front, but I haven’t come across anyone quoting the rear speaker size...
  9. Speaker problem

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I just purchased an 09 159 2.4 TI sportwagon and am loving it. Just going through the little problems. It has the full Bose sound system with Bose logos on the front tweeters.

  10. Possessed rear speaker

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    When I brake and turn right the passenger door speaker let's out a loud screeching/ static sound like an animal is trapped in the door. Happens when the stereo is on or off. I suspect that a wire is shorting somehow, but that's only a guess. That is unless a neighbour is missing a hamster...
  11. Rear speaker not working on my spider

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all 🙂 I recently bought a spider and the rear speaker has never worked. Finally got round to having a look today and there are 2 wires with yellow connectors that aren't connected to anything. After an hour of looking I still can't find anywhere for them to go. Does anyone have any pictures...

Do you need to take the whole rear panel off or is there an easier way? Also do I need to use collars for 6.5 speakers in the front as well as the rear as...

    ICE & Blue&Me
    I have a pair of component speakers....I am thinking of replacing the midbass in doors and just leaving the existing tweeter and hi-pass filter as-is rather than fit the xover and replace tweeter also, or to use the xover to feed the existing tweeter (with hi-pass filter i expect)...I don't...

    Hi all, I'm currently looking to buy a MiTo Cloverleaf - I have my eye on a couple of them but I'd really like to get one with a Bose system in it, currently those I've found are out of my price range. Other option is of course to have the Bose system fitted after buying the car however I...
