After my memorable trip to my dear old favourite country China last December 2006, I came back home to my beloved ER34 only to destroy the front speakers. Sigh.....

With budget constraints and the lack of proper resource and knowledge on In-Car Entertainment (ICE) systems, I went ahead and got a Pioneer TS-A1680S Coaxial 4 Way Speaker as a replacement for my Eclipse 8052 speakers. It came with the below specifications:-
- 220W Max. Power Handling
- 16cm woofer / 40mm dome midrange / 10mm dome tweeter
- Interlaced KEVLAR® Brand Fiber Reinforced IMPP cone woofer
- Butyl rubber surround for smoother response
- Long voice coil design
- Glass-imide voil
After installing the speakers it is apparent that cheap things are rarely good. The speakers are kinda 'noisy', an attribute that I was told was due to it being 4 ways.
Anyway, it will do for now, afterall I'm not too much of an ICE person. As long as I no longer have to listen to music via broken speakers.
