Fairly easy, you will need new speaker pods which you can get from Autoleads for about ?10/15. Yeah Car Audio Security[8D], I know the owner and he will probably tell you how often I can my stereos/A/V units[;)]. Never satisfied[:I] always won't to change my equipment as soon as something new comes out. Been debating what to get from him next.[:p]

I could right or give you a whole book explaining ohms/wattage, etc. Best think to remember is that just because a speakers has more wattage than another doesn't mean it is better. Speakers play with different efficency, etc. Just remember if you by a 4ohm 80 watt rms speaker, than in theory it is better to match it to an amp with 80 watts at 4 ohms. Another point to rememeber a speaker that is quoted in RMS will be a more accurate fiqure that the speaker will play at continuously, where as a Max/Peak wattages is what the speaker can play at if you had a constant 14.4v of power powering the source.

I sure someone would/could add more to what I said, I came out of the Car Audio/Alarm installation many years ago, but I suppose the theory is still the same.

You will need the pods, because the original speakers are bond to the existing pod and then the pod is rivetted to the inner door panel.

?109 for uprated VW speakers, probably made by Nokia or Motorola (Yes they make speakers for the german car market) or MB Quarts for ?100? You decided?
