Evening all,

Got a really quick question for you...

What size speakers do the VW Polo & Lupo take up front??

The Girlfriend is currently looking for her first car & she likes the look of both the Polo & the Lupo so I wanted to start planning the system for her ready for when she passes her test & we buy her car.

I already have an Amp & Sub that I'll hand down to her which will be...

Eclipse 3640 4 channel
Eclipse 8610 10" sub in 1cuft Sealed enclosure

The amp will run the comps & sub till such time as we want to add a monoblock & then run the front comps off the amp in bridged 2 channel mode.

H/you will be an Alpine with Ipod adaptor which will be chosen at a later date.

She mainly listens to Dance & Hip-Hop so they will need to be good for that style of music & budget will be upto £100.

So with that in mind what size speakers should I be looking for??

Ta muchly

Neil

IIRC the lupo has 165mm up front and nothing in the back. I had just under 40mm dia tweeters in mine, too, but that's loong ago and things may have changed. It was also a German one....
