I have a brand new ZX5 SES with an in-dash 6 CD/MP 3 player. This was standard on the SES. I didn't pay for the optional Audiophile system. I want to change/upgrade the speakers because I don't like their sound. Yet I would like to know the make & model of the HU before I choose the replacement speakers (5x7s).

Any info? or can I be referred to another source?

Thanks, [8D]

Thanks. Also thinking about Polk dB570s or Boston Acoustics S85s. Saw your Gallery - impressive installation, looks quite professional. In the door (front/rear ?) it looks like a 6-1/2" speaker space. Was that the stock space or did you modify? To judge by my front & rear door panel perforations, my speakers are all 5x7s. Is that a fair guess?

Yeah, the stock size is 5x7/6x8 (same mounting holes).

I have a How-To in the FAQ for making baffles to use 6.5" round components, and another How-To to install tweeters in the a-pillars.

I wouldn't do 6.5" components unless you are gonna get an amp.

I only run front speakers, plus a sub in the rear.
