    Much better than most of the JBLs I have listened to and good if one have no plans for a subwoofer and amp but needs enough punch. Upgrade to components at rear highly recommended.

    65K :eek: - Thinking now how would it sound, I'm really interested hear the co-axials amp'd. Aren't they really sensitive and probably over powering the fronts.

    YUP, u''ll be able to hear the person across rather well :p

    jokes apart
    yes u can change the speakers, as long as u don fiddle with ur head-unit nothings gonna affect ur bluetooth connectivity
  8. @ Jasveen, the service engineer @ Fiat said that by changing the stock speakers would affect blue and me and hence didnt go for any mods.

    Sir the only good a speaker does in a bluetooth connection is produce the required voice, so its lik getting better headphones for ur cell, they sound better but don affect the cell phone in any which way
    all tht the SE said is complete rubbish, he's best left ignored, go ahead upgrade ur speakers and enjoy ur music

    Mate, changing speakers wont void warrenty or cause any trouble with B&M.... Just ensure that there are no wire cut while installing the new ones.
    Sometimes service engineers dole out crap and should be ignored :)
