Hallo, I am new at this forum, From Sweden aswell, s sorry for the bad english.

Anyway, I am driving a Opel Cabriolet at the moment, Think Opel is called Vauxhall in USA? if its excist at all in the states.

Here is a picture(Not my car, mine isnt modiefied at all,)

So What I have been thinking to do is to get a real stereo in the car. Starting with the front components, ending with some kind of subs...

I am not only poor but I am lazy t so I am using the original speaker holes in the door. so in the front I am looking for a 6.5" component system. I have been lookin alot at two different systems: Infinity Perfect 6.1 or the DLS DLS Iridium 6.2

The thing is that the infinitys system only cost 200$ on ebay new. and the DLS cost 470$ and that is a little to much for me, so of you have any suggestions on what I should by for around 200-300 dollar or if I should get the infinity or the DLS????????????????

RE and Rainbows are highly recommended. Check on their home sites. Just remember not to skimp on the fronts as they are extremely important.

Try looking at MB Quart's on Ebay, pretty sure they are German made. They make plent of 6.5 models, DSE, RSE, QSE off the top of my head. Good quality there.

lol that car is coooool as hell. i would look into a horn set up or the dls series. i just suggest horns because you like heavy metal and nothing brings out the heavy like horns. full in your face energy. you either love them or hate them (those that hate dont know how to tune) but if you like "warm" sound id stick with the dls

Hallo metal friend. The hd62 seems really nice, they even have a swedish guy review on their website :)

So now its between the DLS system and the CDT HD62 then i guess....but they are both in the same to-high price range :)

Will look in on some horn speakers aswell.

hehe no defentitly not a wolkswagen, does exist here in sweden too :) They have models called Omega, Vectra, Corsa and Astra....I actually dont think you have them in the USA


I was looking in to the HD62 and saaw that you can get them for 300 buck, but the hd624 for 330 buck, the different is that you get a pair of 4" med speaker, better investment then the ordinary system?

Opel/Vauxhaul,made by GM in Europe. GM owns them if im not mistaken
They are not sold in the U.S.
Not enough HP for the american market
P.S
DLS Iridums get my vote

Infinity does not sell a product worth my hard earned money.....Johan184 you have access to awesome speaker makers in Europe (Rainbow, Focal, DLS....) stick to those, trust me

EDIT: HAHA didnt saw the HP comment :) very true! hehe mine is a strong 115hp car :)

yup that is correct I got some nice GM parts in my Opel actually :) think the speakers are made by GM :)

And to beezlebub: I am a huge Immortal fan(RIP) also Satyricon, gorgoroth, Grave, darkthrone...mostly the more well produced black metal band, if you get me :).
