Hello,

Can anyone suggest an upgrade for my speakers please?

Not sure how to work out which ones will fit, would any of these be any good?

Hi


You picked 3 different size ones? Doesn't make any sense :|

You should pick ones the same size as your existing speakers otherwise you have a lot of work and extra parts to make them fit the hole.

Best to remove the door card and then the speaker to measure the diameter and the depth.

The C3 door can struggle with deep speakers, so the depth is also very important.

Then with your measured speaker, get one that matches the size. Then you only have to worry about getting the right plug adaptor/connector to connect to the existing door speaker wiring.
You can add an avatar to your account - Avatar or change your vehicle details - Car Bio or even add a signature to your posts - Signature. But this is not all you can do in the User Control Panel :)

The later C3 (2016 on) needs a 6.5" custom fit speaker. No generic 6x9 or universal 6" will fit properly.

There are only a few manufacturers that make these custom fit C3 door speakers, but the Focal ICPSA165 (here) is one designed specifically for the 2018 C3 door.

Hi,
Thank you for the reply.
As it happens those choices were made by a Halfords advisor, I questioned the fact they are different sizes and was told the first two would fit, and the third one wouldn't fit. Not sure why they suggested the third one.

Thank you for the advice.
