How to install front speakers.

Your front speakers are in the left and right corner of your dashboard, right under the front window.

You can take the speaker cover away from the dashboard, you can use a little screw driver or just your nails. You place them in the corner and can just take out the cover very easy.

If you have no pre-installed speakers you will see this. The white connector is the one you need to look for. It's taped to a bunch of other cables.

You can just pull them out. If you are lucky the connector fits right into your new speakers.

If not you have to replace the connector with new ones. Blue connector is -, Red connector +. but please double check. Pink wire is - Dark Purple wire is +. The right side, was: green wire - and blue wire +Links = Left / Rechts = Right / Hinten = Back / Vorn = Front
Schwarz = Black / WeiB = White / Blau = Blue / Grun = Green / Violett = Violet / Rosa = Pink / Rot/Schwarz = Red Black / Rot = Red


Connect the + to the + and the - to the - of the speaker.

There are only two corner screws you have to use, I had to bend the other corners of the speaker that are not used to make the speaker fit in the hole. I used a flexible screwdriver because the front window is in the way.

Here is the finished result. Front right.

Front left.
Cover back on. Done!!!

A lot of people have been asking about the grill witch wont fit back on sometimes. Underneath the speaker grill is a round holding, the plastic is soft enough to be cut with ordinary house-hold scissors/ hobby knife. Trim this and it will fit in nicely!

Thanks Trys for the speaker grill tip

    I just cut the original connector off and replaced it with my own connectors that fitted on the speakers.

    Picture 4 is the original connector
    Picture 5 are the two nes ones, red and blue.

    (I hope that's what you mean, if not let me know)

    You say red is + and blue is - ,but the original wires appear purple and dark purple which one is plus ? thanks
    Guido said...
    I didn't know what + or - was so I looked into the original connector (the white one) where you can see that one metal tab is wider then the other. If you look on the speaker your have the same and so I figured out which wire goes where.
    Dark Purple is - Pink is +

    Seeing that you`ve put Pioneer TS- E1396`s in the rear why didnt you put ts-e1076`s in the front ? no reason or dont they fit ? i`m asking this because i already have some ts-e1076`s and want to know if they will fit ? dont have the car yet. thanks
    Guido said...
    I am not sure those fit, I just checked the Pioneer catalog and looked what they recommended. That was some time ago so maybe the TS-E1076 weren't for sale yet.

    Just a simple question about front speakers.
    Is it possible to install front speakers larger than 100mm in diameter? such as 130mm? or they won't fit without some major work?
    Guido said...
    I don't think that will fit, the hole is really small and my 13 cm speakers don't fit for sure. the magnet is also too big for the hole.

    Hi, I've just fitted some InPhase XT42 speakers in the front. They are a 4" (10cm) speaker - the same size diameter as the factory fitted ones - but they have a good sized magnet on the back and are fairly hefty. I've had to cut away at the underside of the 107 speaker grills and had to cut away the inside of the dash. Beware, there's not a lot of room in there!

    Where can i get a flexible screw driver from?!
    Guido said...
    Check your local hardware store.
    But I am sure you thought of that :-)

    Hi, I was just wondering whether the imporvement in sound quality is notable? and Do I need to purchase anything apart from the speakers themselves (e.g. wires or connectors of any kind)?
    Guido said...
    yes the sound is better, depending on your speakers you need connectors. their is a connector in the current wires but that might not fit on any speakers, not on my Pioneer.

    I've just installed new speakers in my 107, but now i get a rattling noise from the front left on certain frequencies, anybody have the same thing?
    Guido said...
    could be two things.
    1 the speaker is broken
    2 speaker is not fitted tightly enough.

    Hi! General question probably an obviosu answer. I ahve just bought the same speakers as are in the pictures by chance for my toyota aygo, did you have to change your connectors or did they just fit straight in to the new speakers. Thanks :)
    Guido said...
    the original connector did not fit.
    I changed them with new ones. see the 5th picture. you can see the new red and blue connectors.
    Bpoxi said...
    Hi I just soldered the original spade connectors off. That ruins the original speakers but, what the hey, I am not going to use them again anyways. Be careful the connectors are glued down by the way, you may need to slowly pry them away !
    Bpoxi said...
    Great site by the way.. Thanx

    Hiya, my boyfriend fitted some new speakers in my c1, they were exactly the same size as the standard 1s but the left hand side of the cover wont clip back down. Any suggestions or would i have 2 get smaller speakers again?? Cheers
    Guido said...
    The speakers might be too high or they are not fitted correctly, I never heard this problem before.

    hay man. reli good post:D helped me fit some fli intergrator 4's in the dash. only 1 small problem with the extra munts u get on the speakers but simply grinded them off n smoothed it out n all gd so thanks 4 the wkd post:)
    Trys said...
    cheers for you help Guido, sound system is a LOT better now got some MTX's at the front and some Fli at the back, the overall quality is awesome. Also i've installed a underseat 100w sub (or bass-enhancer, LOL). That was a lot of trouble installing...ended up taking the headlight off to pull the wire through on my right-hand drive C1.

    Just a tip (trying to give something back to the community) a lot of people have been asking about the grill with wont fit back on soemtimes. This can easily rectified...underneath the speaker grill is a round holding, the plastic is soft enough to be cut with ordinary house-hold scissors. Trim this all the way round and it will fit in nicely!

    Thanks again mate

    Thanks for the good info just fitted alpine 4inch from halfords £30 . You can use a halfords 10mm rachet spanner to get the speakers out . A little bit of trimming on the grill . Sound much better still really need rear parcel shelf speakers . Thats the next project .

    I'm thinking of getting better speakers for my 107.Nothing fancy i just want better quality of sound.I have the pre installed radio-cd player and I'm not very keen on changing it.The thing is i can't find any information on the pre installed sound system in order to learn what kind of speakers i can install without having to change the cd-player.Any ideas?
    Guido said...
    any 10 cm speaker will fit.
    Anonymous said...
    thanks,so i shouldn't concern about whether the speakers would be too strong for the amplifier in the pre installed cd player?Thanks again for the help
    Guido said...
    yep correct.
    Anonymous said...
    just one last thing.Out of curiosity,would the peugeot pre installed cd player i got, work if i put the front speakers i already got in the rear after i've replaced them with new ones in front?Thanks again in advance
    Guido said...
    I would do that as those original speakers are not that good.
    Go for a 13cm set (will fit on the original parcel shelf)

    Hey Guido! This is an awesome site! Your step-by-step guides with photos are just great.
    The one thing that I keep coming back to all the time, is that my Pug 107 is a 2010 model, which has a different front, different housing on fog lights etc etc... this leads me to the subject for this thread - front speaker question: Do you know (by any chance) if the front speaker housing is different too? It´s hard to find information about the 2010 on the net...

    I have a Sony Xplod MP3 stereo, Sony Xplod 6x9 rear speakers and thinking of getting http://www.brc.se/sortiment/artikel.asp?AHANR=13F1026&VGR=U2200 for front speakers. (match your Pioneer specs). What do you think?

    Thanks in advance for any answer!
    Rebecka
    Guido said...
    Front speakers are the same, it's all very thight and you might need to remove two corners from the aftermarket speakers (which it super easy). The connectors might not fit so you might need to replace those, again very easy job.

    good luck

    Quality blog.
    I have a c1, would just blocking the back of the speakers improve sound quality? I wonder if it might work as less sound waves are wasted out the back then.
    What do you reckon?
    Andrea Degiovannini said...
    In my C1 I've put 2 MOREL DOTECH 4" midwoofer that fits in the OEM speakers position, plus Technology LS29 tweeters with hand made supports.
    Amplifier Genesis profile four with Calcell CP103 for active frequency and level regulation.
    The boot has a shallow mount Pioneer TSW12 sub amplified by Genesis Profile sub.
    If someone is intrested in this configuration I can give some photos.
    The "radio" is an Alpine CRA1656SP with MP3 cd-charger 624s under the seat.
    The OEM radio is still in position, just for the clock....

    Thanks for this blog, it's really helped me replace the original speakers. I bought Vibe Slick 4inch from Halfords and they sound so much better. Had to snip off two corner mountings and have only used one screw to secure the speaker as the other mounting hole is not in line with the pre set hole. I then trimmed the front of the grill panel to get it to fit back on perfectly!

    Hi, I having difficulties with the connectors at swapping dash-speakers. I bought 4" speakers and I bought connectors too for it from eBay,but this ones looks differently. I noticed the original connector has 4 pin point with 4 wire. When I take the speakers out from the dash there's no signal at door speakers too. I think the signal is going from dash speaker to door speaker,so I don't want to cut it. Can you recommend connector for me please. I really don't want cutting ,drilling , hammering... :)
    Very good site by the way.
