Looks great, fast mover on changing the head unit! Also I thought that was a very small Cossie wheel on the outside of your garage at first and then noticed it has a hosepipe attached...

There’s a US you tube video about fitting focal speakers to an Evora by all accounts really decent quality 

I like to replace my oem speakers with Focals    
I replaced my HU with pioneer apple play and rear sub and amp

Nice purchase. I went with Focal door speakers and tweeters which fitted well and gave much better sound.

Thanks 

 

What size are the tweeters do you know? 

And which speakers did you fit?

Went for this JVC DAB

Fitted a screen mount aerial but it's pants so ordered a dab splitter see if that's any better

Fitted fine, it had a double din nav unit in so was just swapping them over really

It does but mine didn't have the OEM alpine reverse camera, it has one that just used a av lead so worth checking what your is, the good thing about the aftermarket unit is that the cameras are cheap if you needed to change it anyway

The Focal kit I have is "Performance Expert PS 130/165V1"  It comprises, 2 door speakers, 2 dashboard tweeters and 2 crossovers. The speakers are pretty much a straight swap, but the crossovers are more difficult as you need to take the sill covers off which are held on with weapons grade sticky tape!

Thanks, do you know if the non tech pack cars have crossovers in the sills?

 

Was hoping i could just remove the door cards and swap out the speakers!
