05 Elise OEM Speakers

Hello guys,

I know there is a lot of talk about upgrading the speakers in the Elise/Exige. My car has a JVC head unit and Focal speakers. The other Lotii I have seen from the same time period have had Blaupunkt equipment. Was this some type of option? Or did the previous owner "upgrade" to this? The sound quality is awful anyway (no mid's OR low's) so I want to upgrade the speaker size in an attempt to get some type of fidelity (at least mids). OEM is 4" dash and 5.25" rears, correct? But you can easily stuff 5.25" in the dash and 6.5" in the rear without much trouble? If that's the case I may just go that route. It won't really add weight, and won't cost much.

Thanks,

Keith

I think you need adapter rings to get the 5.25 speakers to fit up front, but 6.5 rears will drop into the back with minimal modification necessary, if any.

And yeah, the cars originally came with Blaujunk so whatever you have has been 'upgraded'
