the stereo isn't great. if you get a good quality new head unit, you will be disappointed in the final result if you don't also change your speakers. it will sound ok, but as soon as you start turning it up louder, the factory speakers will distort like crazy (just my guess...).

I was told by a bloke at audiocom the holden splits in the front were actually better than most.. I bought a pioneer deh-p1y head unit it it goes off.. later I bought x-plod 6x9 350kw in the back - Im not gonna change the other speakers at all..

I just put new speakers in the front doors and it sounds heaps better. The speakers are Pioneer TS-A1671S 220W three ways and they just screwed straight into the existing holes, only thing i had to change was the wiring connectors.

The speakers are absolute crap. Replacing them will help a lot. I replaced mine with some great speakers from Jaycar for about $60 each.

It's a;ways a good idea to disconnect the battery when working on something electrical.

I have a Sony Explode head unit,and a 5 channel amp.I have retained the front factory speakers and incorperated some split's into those.I also have 6,9 speakers in the parcel shelf,and 2 10's in the boot.The 10's have a dedicated channel,the factory front's and rear 6,9's are what takes up the other 4 channel's.So far with the factory front's I have been impressed with their performance and found that they don't distort (any speaker will distort,if driven hard enough) but at a tolerable volume they do behave well for factory.They do respond well to an amp and can tolerate some punishment.Of course you can get better quality,but in the mean time they will be fine.Having said all of that,you must turf the Europox.
