Hi,

I have the HSV VXR OPEL/ Vauxhall turbo.

I want to put in a better sound system but am having trouble finding out what system is compatible.

Has anyone upgraded? And how 'messy' was it.

Local car radio guy is researching and hasn't got back to me yet.

Not sure if that is a good sign or not.
Thanks.

Where do you live, and what is your budget?

Hi Pickles,

No budget as I'm not entirely sure where costs even begin.

I am in Australia, Brisbane

No worries, you're in Brisbane, I don't know anyone up there.
Nearly bought a VXR myself several years ago,...a great little car.

Not sure how active it is any more but back in the day the https://www.opelaus.com forum would be the place to find that info - you might be able to dig up a thread or two on it still I'd guess.

What do you want to upgrade? The head unit or just speakers?

I'd probably keep the stock HU and put in a decent processor like an Audison bit One or similar to run the signals to your amps

Chat to some like like Northfields that has been around for ever

I'll be upgrading the lot I think. No point getting something to plug my iPhone into if the speakers aren't all working.

Thank for the pointers. Gives me direction!

Always a good idea to check the home market for ideas. I used to have a 2007 Fraud Fiesta. Much stuff online in the UK for these. It was cheaper to buy kits from the UK than finding stuff here in Oz.
