What are the standard speaker sizes in the R56

Hi All,

Bought my first mini today, sound system is poor so I am planning on dropping my spare Alpine amp in there but what size are the speakers in the front doors?

The lower speaker is 6.5" and the higher speaker is 4".

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs

All done now, dropped the 16cm speakers in the front along with the tweeters, did the channel swap, took the clean feed from the rear speaker cables into my Audison HL box and then ran the feed to my 4 channel amp in the rear.

Now running Hertz comps up front and Hertz 6x9s in the rear quarter (but what a PITA job it is to do the rears).

Sounds great now and due to small cabin size, no need for a sub.

Hi,

Can I ask what speakers you used in the front, I'm looking to replace the factory ones (front right sometimes crackles) and I can't seem to find a set that would replace the two at a time.

Regards

Seb
