    Thanks Boydie,

    I should hope they were awesome at that price, I've looked them up to be around the £395 mark. Did you look at much else before deciding on the Focals?
    I currently have the V2's in my BMW but they are only 5.25" so the bigger size alone should be a noticeable improvement? I'm not sure if I can justify nearly £400 for my speakers:faint:

    i got mine for just under £330 - so you can haggle a bit

    i didnt look at any other components - i went with the advice from several owners :D

    Good work mate, I will make a few calls around.I've still got to work out where to put my amps as I have a shallower floor than you with the 4wd.
    I'm not keen on screwing them to the back of the seat backs again!

    make a nice raised platform - just about 10mm higher than the amp

    same sort of idea as mine - wont take up much room and would be neat and tidy :D

    Could do it that way but want to keep as much of the boots as I can, until I get the car it's going to be difficult to work out what's what!
    I take it your rear speakers are just disconnected then are they?

    they are still connected but just for the phone as far as i know - i am going back to the Audio Shop this week for some final touches and a briefing

    what you could do is get the side panels above the rear wheels reinforced and get a custom fibre glass holder for the amp with a perspex cover and some lighting - that would look sweet!

    Nice idea Boydie but to be honest I'm not really into the "show" element, it's more function that I'm bothered about and keeping as much space. I already have to put the multichanger,DAB box, Amps and a sub somewhere.I like the sound that the Sub gives me but the annoying box is always in the way and I feel it will be worse in the S£ as the boot is a bit smaller than my current BMW!

    definately build them into the sides - you will not lose any boot space and plus, it will look neat and tidy so for those moments when someone asks you what system you have you can show them something classy instead of a random box with wires lying about!

    thanks klauster! :D
