    Just need a few opinions about fusion speakers. I had a set of sony components in my old car but are now out of stock. my budget is only £40 and i liked the sony one's but the fusion one's are the alternative. I know there are splenty on the net but i can't wait that long.

    In a word, I would say NO
    Down to personal taste & budget though.

    You can probably pick up a nice set of Alpine or Pioneer speakers for a few extra beer tokens :smile:
    Or go the extra mile & get yourself a set of Focal's :up:

    ive got focal's theyre the daddy. like the way you built in your crossover! imo fusions are cheap and nasty, havent heard the FLI component speakers, but heard there subs and for the money theyre awesome.

    Try find someone who is good with re-trims, cut a hole in your A-pillar and mount the tweeter there - massive improvement to the "sound stage"

    Just put my pioneer tweeters on the dash, without taking the dash off!! very easy to do, as long as you don't mind using the factory wire, just chop the renault connector off the end (pink -, brown +), add a couple off spade connectors and bingo. I put them on top of the grills. look and so great!!!
    Next is the sub, 6x9's and the amp!!

    Trophy
    I installed Infinitys into my Trophy. Kappa components in the front and Reference 6"x9"s on a stealth shelf, all running off an Alpine 9850Ri (no amps).

    The OE door fixings took the Kappa woofers with slight modifications and the tweeters came with a couple of mounting options. They would have dropped into the place of the originals, but I opted to cut them into the OE tweeter grills and focus them into the car.

    I know people say an amp will make a huge difference but personally I'm going on the premise that if I never try one I won't know what I'm missing.

    I do have to use my boot for carry stuff so a sub isn't an option and the 6" x 9"s on a stealth shelf are A. invisible and B. not too bad to my reasonably discerning ears (a few years working as a sound and lighting engineer....)!

    I did get mine for a very good price, they were in a sale and I saved at least £150 on the speakers. The shelf was £100 and the head unit £200 from Car Audio Direct although it's now dropped to £160.

    I also threw in some Dynamat Xtreme behind the door cards and under the dash in an attempt to reduce some of the squeaks and rattles. I got that off ebay....
