Can anyone tell me what sizes the speakers are in the front and rear of the GT2?

6x4's.

Alpines do some nice replacements that fit in with no modifications for approx £25-£30.

Check the back of the factory grill doesn't rub the outer suspension of the speakers - there's a little "sticky out bit" (obvious when you look!) on the back of the grill that fouls on some speakers.

Rad. Err.. do you have the model no. For those Alpines ? I'm about to replace the (still standard) fronts and rears on my Storm.

Don't know the delivery charge but similar prices..

Alpine SXE-4625S

For some reason the ones I bought didn't fit in the front but no one else seemed to have this problem, maybe slightly thicker rim of material on the ones I got :dunno:

Yes, I had the same problem with the raised rim around the speaker face; it's cardboard, so I stuck a Stanley knife in mid-way through it and the top layer peeled off easily. The grille cleared it ok afterwards.
