Hi all, I'm looking for some guidance regarding an audio upgrade for my new shape BRZ. I'm currently looking into a Kenwood head unit from the UK and a 2 din OEM trim and plug and play harness from Australia made by a company called carboncarsystems which will allow me to keep my steering controls and give an OEM look but want to see what's around speaker wise to improve the sound quality. If anyone knows of something in the UK that will allow me to keep the steering controls please let me know, carboncarsystems are being a bit funny about shipping to the UK. I've seen there's a plug and play kit made by Focal https://www.bassjunkies.com/is165toy.html which looks to be good but wondered if anyone has fitted it and can give me their opinion if it's a good option to go for? While the tweeters would be out I've seen there's space for a mid tone speaker in there which comes with a JDL kit? Is it worth finding a mid tone to go in with the tweeter? I'm also interested in changing my rear speakers, I know their 4" and there are lots of options on the market but wondered what people can recommend that are yet again plug and play. I've also seen people buying an amp to go behind the head unit, whats this all about? I'm not keen on putting any speakers in the boot or covering the car in sound proofing materials, I'm simply after a good quality system which is noticeably better than the stock system. Budget wise I would spend £500 max but would like to spend less however I understand you obviously get what you pay for!! Please any advise or reviews welcome, sorry to create another audio related thread but the answer I wanted wasn't on the existing ones.
As I've been unable to find this anywhere else I've created a printable template for cutting your own front door speaker baffles. The preferable way to do this is to print the PDF with no scaling, it should print to the correct dimensions on A4 but check the measurement guides against a ruler before you start work to make sure they are correct. The guides should be accurate to within less than 1mm, if they are out then the template has been scaled by your printer or application and you need to try again. The second option is to use the attached PNG file and insert it into a document yourself in something like word or publisher and play around with scaling until it prints perfectly (you will probably waste a lot of paper). You will need margins set very small to fit this on the page at full size. I haven't tested these myself yet but I have sized them against existing adaptors and they look perfect. I don't believe the GT86/BRZ needs the outer corner thickness reducing so the baffles can be a single thickness with a hole in the centre. For the last time: DO NOT waste time and materials cutting against this template if the scales don't match perfectly against a ruler or tape measure etc. If you've stumbled in here searching for baffles for a different model of Toyota then these might do the trick as well, this layout is used in multiple models.
