PostSubject: Crap Sound   Crap Sound EmptyMon 23 Jul - 18:09

I've finally had enough of the crap oem speakers fitted to my hawk Sti do I've ordered new front and back speakers and adapter kit for the fronts, how easy is it to remove the front and back door cards to fit these, so I can here some quality sounding chooooons instead of the fuzzy distorted crap I here now.

Thanks

Piece of cake mate. If i can do it you can do it, mine have been on and off loads of times now. Pop round and grab a few sheets of second skin too. Worth it.

I'm sure I'll manage Keith, I've had the door cards off loads of other cars before, just never had them off my scoob before, I've ordered some sound deadening sheets with my speakers if that's what you mean by second skin

Yep. My doors are covered in the stuff but you only really need it on the flappy bits. But I could hear the difference with one door done and one door bare. Plenty more mid and bass came over. Still need to do the boot and will get round to it at some point.

Not sure if Hawk doors are the same as Blob ones, but dont forget to lever off the little suround moulding that goes round the door lever. I smashed mine the first time i took the cards off as I didnt realise it was attached to something behind the card Rolling Eyes . Apart from that its pretty plain sailing once youve got the controls unclipped.

Daz, its dead easy if you are just going to replace the stock items with some improved aftermarket and use the loom that Subaru fitted. Its a bit more of a task if you want to replace the wiring (which is actually advisable) or start running amps etc like Ive got in mine.

Depending on how fussy you are, the OEM head unit will actually sound much improved with a change of speakers. Changing speakers and the HU will improve things again. Add an amp and a sub to the system is a massive improve, but its horses for courses and whether you care about sound and whether youve got the lolly to throw at this instead of perfromance/styling mods, which is where most people would prefer to invest.

Well got all my kit today, so started to remove the drivers door card, which revealed a quite large crossover inside the door panel, so someone has obviously changed the speakers before I got the car, but they must be fucked as they sound crap, only problem is I can't get the door card right off because can't see how the electric window and morrow switches disconnect, I have removed the switch h panel from the door card but can't disconnect the wires to allow me to remove the door card fully. Evil or Very Mad

Still can't get door card right off out of the way, but pulled it back and took this picture, the wires going to all of these bullet connectors from the window and mirror switches don't look standard to me can anyone else please comment if this does not look how it should be.

Fook. Mine looks not like that. If I'd seen that I'd have probably called the bomb squad. We can rip mine off on Sunday and I'll give you a butchas.

Will have another look at it tomorrow, but looks like whoever has been there before me has well and truly butchered something.

Cheers Keith

Well I still haven't got round to getting these speakers fitted to my car yet, as they have now just been in their boxes for the last 2 months I would like these to be in the car, who on here would be able to fit these for me as I don't really fancy tackling all them wires again when I try to take my door card off.
