Hi Folks I was wondering if I want to upgrade speakers in my B4 2004 to say pioneer how many speakers would I need and what sizes I have an alpine 305s head unit at the moment but find the sound a bit tinny cheers.

Notice the way there is no Pioneer or Clarion or Alpine or the likes listed, good reason for that!

From my bit of reading today, ill go for:

Polk DB6501 component front speakers

Focal SOLID4 4 channel amplifier, to power front 2 and bridge other two channels for 8" Polk Audio MM840DVC subwoofer on rear parcel shelf

Standard rear speakers will be left powered off Headunit.

Apply sound deadening to most of the rear parcel shelf and areas of the front and rear doors
