If you just want deeper bass, then consider adding a subwoofer as that would be adequate for your needs. New Speakers will probably not give you that bass that you are looking for. There are different types of subwoofer and reading up about them might help you narrow your choices.

Have a look at my thread for info.

I have added aftermarket sub turned the Base right down on the radio but there is still plenty of bass comming from the sub without the door cards vibrating.

Underseat powered subwoofer would be the best bet I think without breaking the bank. At a later stage, you can always get a coaxial set of Speakers to have clearer mids and high frequency.

Any photos of this set up please? As me being a fan of Trance/Funky House... I do like some base. But dislike the rattling door cards! :D

I used to have a JBL sub/amp installed in the boot of my previous Clio. With a alpine head unit the sound was fantastic, but I lost half of the boot space because of the sub/amp. Don't really want to have this in the Fiesta, and I like to have ample boot space.

this is the sub i got unfortunately it does take up half the boot and is a bit ott.

this one would probably do the job and give you more boot space

mine isn't an under seat sub it goes in the boot. its 2 12" subs in one enclosure with built in amp. i may well have gone for an under seat sub if i didn't already have this one from last car

then you can have the Speakers of your choice and keep the original wiring intact

speaker sizes are same front and rear not sure on tweeters

Best thing would be to get some decent components are replace the tweeters, Alpine ones aren't too badly priced tbh about £140 a pair for decent lines.

the rattles you'll never stop, I remember mine wasn't the door cars or trims that rattled it was the switch for the mirror adjustment that always rattled, the rest of the car was spot on for this. just touching the sliver switched and it stopped. quite annoying.
