Qashqai Speakers

on Sat Mar 25, 2017 8:21 pm
Looks like the Qashqai will be staying for a while now (unless it blows up)

So....

The Mrs has asked up upgrading the speakers after a trip out in da TT... Good job Spot!

Any good websites where I can find simple to fit replacement speakers without too much re-wiring?

It's entirely possible the current speakers are fine, but the radio could be a bit meh!

What about installing a flat panel bass speaker and a decent head unit which has bass output phono's?

I have a SONY head unit and it's awesome! It has DAB, Bluetooth, audio in and USB. It's a single din unit.

I'm guessing this is the next gen, but it's similar https://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-sony-cdx-dab500u_p-31263.htm?gclid=Cj0KEQjwqtjGBRD8yfi9h42H9YUBEiQAmki5OschYmwQNLaCsQyu9Tt5X9ng-XI9k8ullB7ibNsFeL8aAsaF8P8HAQ#


or there's double din Pioneer

I upgraded the BMW speakers to Focal ones, and it made a big difference ....

However, the difference for me was mostly gained by adding front tweeters.

The biggest difference for me, and even the Zafira sounds good this way, is to upgrade the amp.

Quickest way to upgrade the amp ... run Spotify through your iPhone, and the aux lead in the car.

Changing speakers alone (unless you are adding) won't make a massive difference.

The current head unit is double height, has sat nab, Bluetooth, integrated with steering controls etc. Quite possible the output is shit though however to replace like for like with upgraded output would be 400-500?

I'll have to see if there's a connection for the underseat bass option.

The later QQ's had Bose upgrades, can't find what the 2009 Tekna had

This might end up in the too difficult pile where a DIY attempt ends up leaving things worse

Get up to my patch for a couple of days holiday and I'll tackle it for you Wink

The link to the double din job I put in my previous post is about one fifty. That's cheap enough.

you have Hertz components in the TT.....with the added 12" Hertz sub and amp (which wasnt included Razz ) it sounded farking awesome!

I'm guessing you want to do the QuashGash on a budget, so an upgrade to those focals will be awesome, but don't expect easgasms.

those speakers will be crying out for an amp to power them, not a nissan spec stereo....and if you are going that way, then you need to upgrade the head unit (for aux-outs) to a decent unit.....and as you have a double din bay - it would be rude not to!.

once you've amped the focals and added an amp....go the whole hog and add a little sub (10" will be fine) and that will sound like a nightclub Very Happy


or...you know, just upgrade to the focals and see what its like.

Interestingly the Z has a bose system, two tops, two doors and two subs behind the seats....its fricken awesome

My George came with some ancient radio/cassette cd stacker, so it got whee'd and I stuck in the SONY job.

Already amped and the bass is sufficient, although I do fancy a flat panel job that I could screw onto the back of the back seats to to, ya know, "help" it a tad more Cool
