Rear speakers
#1
Hey guys,

I know that the holes in the rear aren't big enough for the magnets on uprated speakers - but I think I heard that you can cheat this by using longer torx screws? Just wondering if anyone could confirm it and post a link as to where to get some Smile

Cheers!

You can get long screws anywhere, it doesn't matter what heads they have as long as the threads are correct.
So where does this bit go then ?

Yes, it was I who changed mine and used longer screws.

As suggested I just found some longer slotted head screws that matched the thread of the older ones.

It's a tight squeeze and you may have to fiddle with how you tilt them, but mine went in OK.

Or you could always try to get a set of JBL speakers from a Peugeot 406 Executive estate.

I had a really nice set of Alpines in the back of my 406 & the magnet size prevents me from being able to fit them in the Partner, but the Partner/Berlingo rear speakers are identical to the standard ones that I had in the 406 estate. I know from experience that the JBL upgrade speakers are a good quality & if you're feeling flush, they are only £20 each from a main dealer for brand new ones.
2000/X Peugeot 406 110 HDi LX Family 93k to 2000/W BMW 530D SE Auto 84k to 2003/03 Peugeot Partner Escapade 95k

Standard so far

I have same problem with some vibe speakers, if i used longer screws would that mean the speaker cover would no longer fit flush and have a gap around the edge.

If I didn't already have my alpine's I'd be searching on ebay now for some JBL's! Good tip for anyone in future that tho.
