Does it make a cracking sound whenever there's bass?
yes. full cracking. like the speaker specially the top one is blown.
what I've done is I shut the woofer off and reduced the bass on the equalizer, that way I can use the sound system. just wanted to know if someone can help me open it and check the speaker. this is a normal speaker and I might be able to replace it with a better quality one.

Let us/me know what size they are what kind you replace them with. As I have the same problem too..:wall:

Thanks,

The Ferrari factory speakers are horrid. Any basic aftermarket speaker (e.g. DLS, Rockford...) will outperform those. I opened my factory speakers andwas shocked to see that they are just basic paper type of speaker and the paper has hardened over the years causing the loss of acoustics.

And to add, since you already have the subwoofer box, any audio specialist will be able to throw in new subs and make them fit within the box without altering the factory aesthetics. You might even be able to fit in a decent mini amp.

Yes. True. But I don't want to take it to them as they will not know how to open it and will scratch the leather. All I'm looking for is to get help here openning it without damaging.
The grill doesn't pop out.

Sorry can't help you here (I'm a no-audio guy in my Ferrari ;) ) but as Ed said, the best would be to bring your car to a pro audio installer and upgrade your speakers to some decent brands. F430Addict has done a great upgrade in this domain.

My Goodness!
:wall::wall::wall::wall::wall::wall:
This is the horror movie I've seen when I opened the woofer!



Not only blown! but also the mid curtain is fallen and dancing there freely and making NOISE!
All to do is to remove them and replace them with something better.

tell me guys, you think I should keep the grill or the exposed speaker is better? maybe I should keep it original huh?

That sub in post 12 looks to big in diameter for the recess.
I would not screw it in on the box recess as it does not have sufficient space to secure correctly.
Maybe a size smaller?

that jbl is just a photoshop edit. ofcourse it must be just the same size. no upgrade worth on this case really...
put the grill back on. did it come off as as i said?
yes right. with grill is nicer. grill comes out with it's all plastic surroundings. it has 3 things to consider:
1) the holders are greasy (maybe to avoid vibration noise)
2) it has to be removed from driver's assistant elbow side. it got a pin in there that if you try from top/down/driver side will break easily.
>> use a plastic pvc card (like parking/credit cards) or tinting card.

I'm going now to change the speakers... photos will come along.
