  • VXR Install

    Ok boys and girls have done a speaker upgrade to the front doors
    focal polyglass 165V2 were chosen after lots of reseach into size of the door and so on.

    sound deading was also used about 7 sq.ft per door can get a kit with 12 sq.ft in it for about £70, tip sound dead both skins of the door.

    tweeters and crossovers just fixed them on loads of room behind door card for crossover and the tweeters unclip the old and fix in the new one.

    put card back on and no one will know, as for the sound bloody hell theres some real good bass there now

    next thing is to make a enclosure for the spare wheel will keep ya all update with the latest.

    anyone wants pics?????? look at www.myspace.com/napa1985 or http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2551276 oremail me and i will forward them on to ya

    Cheers All John

      I always thought it was pointless using component speakers if your not amping them. (Or are they)


      Looks good though. Makes allot of difference?

            Well I've always had the practical communter car 1.6 stuff.

            Then got a 1.6sxi astra, which lasted less than a month due to problems with the car, saw the VXR and me and hubbie decided to get that instead. The prev plan was he had a veccie super touring 2.5 v6, I was gonna get a new 1.6 sxi and we were getting a veccie vxr.... but the astra is better for running everyday than the veccie, also smaller so more practical.

            so far she has been staged 3, also changed the radio surround to carbon fibre effect. Oh and added a vxr badge to the front grill!

              How much for the speakers and did you power them up or from the std head.

              I have a CDC40 and want better sound but dont want to change the head.

              What about the rears.

                hi napa
                looks great,do you feel it has made a big difference?
                i was thinking of using something like that to use in the boot so i could convince the bird to get an exhaust.

                      i'm the same i like people to look in and see the std unit and think nothing of it plus does fit in with the dash

                      the speakers i got at trade and they are running off std unit
                      got the speaker though my work i do this for a living

                      rears are the next think will be a set of 165mm coxials in the rears will post when they are done!!!!

                      Cheers John

                        How much did they cost? I love my music but really cant be doing the boot install thing.
