    realising my old alpine 6255 components are coming to the end of their lives now so need something to update them with.

    i have 5.25in on the doors and the tweeters live in the dash speaker locations, dont judge me they have been there since i bought the car in 2000 and always sounded reasonably good

    not looking to go McD car park specials, just something decent quality and sound. Currently there is a Blaupunkt head unit in situ, likely to update that too at some point with dab and bluetooth connectivity, a Skagen or Stockholm as they look angular enough to fir the age of the car too imo.

    looking at Focals or maybe mb quarts but anything better/cheaper etc?

    I have Rainbows in the stock locations. Not the cheapest; I was recommended them by an audio geek and they do sound nice.
    I keep meaning to get around to amplifying them properly. Somehow that day never comes

      I was going to say Focal but you have that covered already. Believe there is a chap here who gets good deals.
