First stereo fitted in 1999 was a bit of a chuck in job but sounded good.

Have you noticed much of a decline in proper performance (i.e. at normal listening levels) since the change?

There is quite a change in the quailty of sound and performance.

The mid range sound is still good as it has got 1 set of 6x9's and components in the doors and another set of 6x9's in the rear pods

The low range bass is so different going from 2 x 12" subs and 2 x 10" subs just to 1.

Still setting the sound up though as i only finnished it the other night.

But now i have the space for the baby seat in the back.

Cab must be a goodun otherwise it would have shaken to bits by now. :biggrin::tongue:

It has been in so many bits over the years i have had it always doing someting up as its rattled loose.

Its a C Reg like yours, Its only been welded 3 times mk3's always seem to be built with more underseal :convertible:

Even though it looks like a mk4 its still mk3 underneath :biggrin:

6x9's in the wobbly rear pods? That can't have sounded too great surely. :blush:

 

edit - Sorry, just had another look at the photos and seen how they were mounted.

Well the Sony sub took a turn for the worse today coil melted at full volume oops .

Had a look in my loft and found a choice of replacement :-

10" kicker square

15" kicker comp

or 12" infinity perfect with changeable port

just got to decide :-/

you using those door cards?

 

yes sorry they are adapted mk3 door cards took me a long time to find them instead of the grey with blue piping .

90 spec turbo seats looked funny with them.

Even though it looks like a mk4 it still is a mk3.

I will be sorry to see the back of it really i have invested a lot of time and money over the years .. Not sure really what to buy i think it will have to be a cheap run about for now. But will always keep my eye out for another escort so easy to work on them :steeringwheel:
