Whilst the Wagon’s natty roof-mounted rear speaker setup held it’s own during some post-installation testing of the double DIN stereo there were some very odd noises emanating from the speakers in the front…

That’ll explain that then…

Although the Wagon’s speakers have only two mounting tabs they’re positioned opposite each other as you’d find on regular aftermarket items, meaning I could pick up a common pair of 10cm speakers (in my case Pioneer TS-G1031i)  and remove the two extra tabs with some snips. Adapting the aftermarket speaker wiring to the standard loom was as simple as crimping on spade terminals to slot into the existing Suzuki connectors.

Whilst I still wouldn’t call it a benchmark for the discerning audiophile I can at least say that music sounds like music again 🙂
