Which speakers should I get?
 
I've got a mk1 03 focus and have fitted a kenwood stereo with USB (about a year ago). My speakers have started cracklings and as wondering what speakers to replace the originals with as they look oval shaped?

I think they are 5x7" on all models, not sure about EU sizes though.

I've always had very good luck with Pioneer speakers. I had them in my Mustang and never had a problem. I've got some non-pioneer speakers in the Focus as they were a gift and I'm not "unhappy" with them, but I'm not completely satisfied with them.

Be sure to install them with baffles to prevent panel vibration and to get the clearest sound from whatever speakers you buy.

Rockford fosgate R1682, period. They are a 6x8. Got to sonicelectronix or Crutchfield, read the reviews and then go to eBay and buy them. They are around $41 a pair on eBay.

Ditto on Pioneers and the speaker size for American Foci are 6"x8". Should be the same for Euro models as well.

Weird, mine are 5x7. Did they change them between model years?

5x7 and 6x8 fit the same opening.

I was thinking this.

But it's most likely just this.

What is your budget Jim?

That is the most important place to start.

Thanks for all the comments guys. My budget is cheapish. I forgot to mention my focus is from England (live in france). I think I need to look on the "bay"
