Wifes 1.4 Modus expression recently purchased (05 model) only has speakers installed in the front. How easy is it to fit two more speakers in to the empty speaker slots in the rear door panels?
Will the wiring be there and is it just a case of getting a pair of speakers and fitting in place? If so can I get from Renault dealer or Audio car shop? Any advice appreciated.
I've got a 56 plate Expression (well, an Oasis really but it's the same) and I wanted to improve the dreadful standard sound.
I already had a pair of 13cm sized speaker units from the rear doors of my previous car (05 plate Clio) so I put those in the rear doors of the Modus. It added slightly to the warmth of the overall sound but not really to the clarity.
Use a flat head screw driver to prise off the grill cover and you'll find the wires are sitting there waiting for you. The connectors are a bit like BT spades. Insert the spade connector to your newly aqquired 13cm speakers and use 2 screws to fit them 'tightly' in place. The door already has a bit of white foam sound deadening in place but as you have the grill off it might be a good time to put a bit more in.
Only question is how much are you prepared to spend on the speakers? You might spend as little as £10 or as much as £500.
Also, most car audio specialists will tell you not to fit speakers to the rear doors. It's better to change the fronts for a really good pair.
Hope this helped.
