    Centre speaker & Amp upgrade

    I have recently got my hands on a center speaker assembly, but without its loom...

    Does anyone have a pinout of the plug that fits this ??



    or any advice on what fits ???



    So far I have fitted a separate DAB unit that feeds the original stereo via the FM cable... the DAB unit also has AUX in and iPod control..



    To boost the volume I have spliced in some simple ebay amplifier circuit boards... amplifies the noise as well as signal but in the Beat not an issue, means I can listen to music above the engine on the motorway (if I want to)
    like these (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC-12V-26V...algo=undefined)

    good luck on finding a 4" Bass speaker....assuming the paper cone is worse for wear


    few pics of wiring that was in mine before i stripped it out




    the wiring for the 120w system is complicated, look through the audio threads.
    the dash speakers are split but not L /R....i 'think' that 1 speaker & tweeter from one side and 1 speaker from the other are linked and vice versa for Spatial sounds?
    there also appears to be a lot of wires going to the Amp but not too sure what goes on with that.

    If you can fit a 4.5" speaker in there, Tang Band makes a subwoofer that's supposed to be good down to 35hz.

    And if you don't need that bottom octave.

    These Daytons looks like they would do the trick as well

    The hard part is not getting shafted by the postage.
