Does anyone have a diagram of all the screws I should take out and what I should pop out to take off the plastic cover of the door for access to the speakers?

If your going to replace speakers, match high-end with high-end. SLK deserves better. A/D/S, MB quart, Focal...You WILL be much happier with a high-end set. Do it right.

the cover screen for the speakers are i think screwed from the inside.. you have to remove the door panel to get to it. here's a litle help:

While I appreciate you input, you must understand living in South Africa names like that are either a bit harder to come by or extremely more expensive. I chose this brand for mulitple reasons. Besides I've heard some Rockford sound systems that sound great. I've heard some STARSOUND that even sound great even Calibra that sound great. They were all deemed "shitty" brands, but still the sound that came out was great. It's all about the setup. [:D]


Speaking of sound systems, what sound do you have running? I'm curious to know how everyone else's setups are.

I currently have an OmniFi which I am in the process of installing. I am currently leaning towards an Eclipse HU, speakers and amps are up in the air.

Mike619, I thought you had given up on the SLK and were looking for a Boxster of something?

I see your situation. In my previous vehicle I had A/D/S speakers which won me competions. In my current vehicle, SLK, I have stock, which sound better than my A/D/S.

I wanted a all Alpine system, but when i started calulating prices i realised i'd be paying a WHOLE lot more. So hopefully we'll do that to my girlfriends car (whatever month she decides to buy one [:(])

In the states yuo can get Alpine stuff pretty cheap. I am not sure how good their speakers are. Their HU's are nice and integrate well with the amps. Although for the money you can buy better amps than Alpine.
