Bought this a while ago on here and am just not going to get round to installing them.

I have little time as it is to tinker with the car and so these are just going to continue sitting on the shelf.

http://www.slkworld.com/general-modifications-r171/2118-audio20-system-speakers-upgrade-complete-w-pix.html

Whole system is for sale (totally plug and play) for $800 shipped. You're saving on the install and mounting costs (over $150) since everything is already glued and mounted correctly, just take out the stock speaker assembly and replace. What you get is:

2xHertz Space 8 8" Mid-bass woofer + 2xHertz HL70 3.5" Midrange speakers (both mounted to the stock frames)
2x Eclipse 1" Tweeters (40W RMS) (both mounted to the stock assembly with grille)
2x DynAudio X360 3-way crossovers

Retail for all these separately is easily over $1,000, and with the labor involved to trim the edges of the speaker mounts and to silicone the speakers onto the frame, this is easily a $1,100 value.

I'd prefer paypal gift.

I'd like what I paid for them which is $700.

Are these speakers compatible with Command NTG 2.5 with the harman kardon speaker system?

Yes and no - you'll have to play a bit with the wiring if you want to use the crossovers. I *think* you will find that you don't need to use the crossovers, but wait and ask me again after I get some free time in the UK to play with mine!

Sorry for posting in old thread. But I have questions for 2 experts here (Uk-c200 and adamantium)

1. I have audio20 system and I want to change my speakers to smt like hertz or focal. How many speakers do I have at the moment?

I only know 2 tweeters at the doors and 2 door speakers. ( I believe they consider it as 4 since 2close ones at a side )

do I have one at the center? or back of the seats?

2. How will I know which speaker to buy? I have no information on speakers whatsoever. Can you give me the detailed information about speakers so that I can buy the same size? ( which ones are tweeters, which one is subwoofer )

(I dont even know the difference between subwoofer, speaker or tweeter. seriously :) )

3. How will I know that speakers will fit?

and lastly

4. I have seen that there are different watts for different speakers. Is there any chance that the speakers will damage my electronic system If I dont choose correctly?


thanks mates!

Very seriously, if you don't know the difference between a tweeter a mid and a subwoofer, then there is no way you should be looking at upgrading your system without professional help.

The standard wiring in the SLK is pretty non-conventional, if you add in experience into the mix it will be a recipe for disaster.

Get yourself to a professional audio installer and let us know how you get on.

If you have more questions then, I'm sure we'll be able to help you.

hey,
English is my third language. What I meant was I am not expert on SLK. :)



I have learned that I have 9 speakers at the moment. I miss only 2 middle speakers at the rear since I dont have HK option.

I just need detailed information about SLK speakers. I mean tweeters are direct swap but other than that I should know the size and watt of the each speaker. So that I can be sure that I am going on the right direction.

thanks again mate.

3. How will I know that speakers will fit? (especially for door speakers. There are 2 that are located very close, right?)

and lastly

Traveling at the moment, and my cheat-sheet is at home. I'm hoping to head back on Friday, but will be SheepChasing until Tuesday..
