2005 MG TF 115 door speakers 1 month 1 week ago #197399

Hi guys, I've just bought an MG TF and would like to upgrade the door speakers.

I've removed the old unit that houses the speaker but the one I have you can't appear to remove the old speaker from the housing, It looks like a sealed unit. I've prized back the foam and there aren't any rivets holding it in like I've seen on various other posts.

I'm guessing I'll have to mount the speaker straight onto the door?

Any recommendations to size etc are greatly appreciated, also is there some sort of lead you can buy to connect the existing speaker connection to the new speaker?

Hi and welcome to the forum

I think the speaker is screwed to the door in standard set up.

Have a look in the how to guides for instructions on removing the door card.

I put 6.5" Alpine speakers in my TF. I cut the connectors from the loom in half with a stanley knife and just connected them to the tangs on the speaker.

The TF 115 doesn't have the door tweeters or the rear speakers in the T bar as standard like the 135 or 160.

Adding the tweeters and rear speakers is a cheap improvement for a lot less than decent aftermarket speakers. This also raises the sound stage for a much clearer and brighter sound.

Obviously aftermarket speakers are ultimately better, but the standard speakers are not that bad with a decent head unit.
