Looking to upgrade just the speakers on my ride, if possible. The CD changer and radio/cassette unit work just fine, just looking for suggested speaker only replacements. Called the folks at Crutchfield and there are no "direct fit" replacements and they were not much help. Anyone else go down this path and can share thier input. Thanks.

Take a few minutes and visit the audio section in the main forum selections. You'll find loads and loads of information about speaker replacement. You are limited however in sizes that will fit. Without doing a bunch of cutting, you're at 4.25" in the dash and 5.5" in the rear deck.

Good Luck and welcome to the forum

Rainbow speakers (German) make direct-fit replacement for the W124. They aren't cheap, but the sound is greatly improved with the factory head unit.

I have these installed in my 1995 E320 Wagon.

There is a recent thread that mentions 4" Alpine SPS-400 speakers that fit just fine after cutting away some insulation to clear the deeper magnet.

I've installed 13cm DLS speakers both in front and rear. Had to chop one side from front speakers to fit perfectly. There is enough place in front to install some of 13cm speakers with small modifications of them (not damaging dashboard) and put back original cover.
