Re: How important is it to have music in your car?
For a grand you can get a good setup.
Go have a look at Alpine's components for the front.
And some some decent mid range drivers for the rear.
Infinity do some quality mid range speakers as well as some quality subs.
If I was you though i'd find a decent sub and amp package. www.bassjunkies.com or www.caraudiocentre.co.uk are good places to look and have some great sub an amp packages. Go for a package with a Class D amp.
What head unit you got mate?
I'd only put components in the front though as the tweeters are very very clear and loud and if you have 4 tweeters in a small car like yours you'll find it hard for the bass to keep up.
Yeah it is, I was thinking of a single amp to save space, I was going to go for the "mount them under the seat" option but there isn't room, I thought about mounting them under the rear bench seat and I thought that would make the passengers uncomfortable, the boot is a decent size on the 306 but I would like to keep it that way
I like the set up that I have now not because of how it sounds, but because of its ease of removal, I can un plug my sub (it's a fusion sub and amp together got it off my mate for a fraction of the retail cost) and the rear shelf does have speakers in it (came like that from the factory) but it has a conviniant plug so I haven't got to mess with screw drivers,
I'm a musician by the way (i play the guitar) and my equipment take a lot of space (more than the boot can handle) so being able to either install the stuff out of the way or being able to remove it easily is a big advantage to me.
You could get a connector for the wires and make it easily removable thats not a problem.
Depending on if you go for a set of components and power them with an amp you'll need a decent power sub to be able to keep up with them so I would def get a separate amp for that.
An don't worry bout Loz he's being grumpy cause I nicked his sweets.:amuse:
