Hey guys, pepperjudy here! Just purchased a 2011 SLK 300. Love her, she's white with a cream interior, AMG suspension package with COMAND nav/sat system. LOVE HER!! Her name is EVA after the character on Wall-E.

My main problem is the mid-bass speaker is AWEFUL, drivers side. I want to replace just the speakers. My husband can do it, he wants to know if there is a passive crossover somewhere, or do I have to purchase them new with the speakers. I'm going to replace all six main speakers. I have searched and most folks are going with either Hertz or MB Quarts.

So do I buy just the speakers or do I need the crossovers? Where would you put them?

Thanks, look forward to the input. I'll posts pic's soon.

JP :x

Hi Judy, and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

There are others that are more knowledgeable than I am on this, but depending on what you have, you may need different things. For example, Harman Kardon or not will impact what speakers and amp (or AGW - Audio Gateway) you have. Get the free gift (data card) that Jeff (jbanks15) has offered, and you'll see what you car has:

Even though it has COMAND sat nav, that can still be HK or not, and the datacard will tell you. :D
