Hi there,
one of the door speakers has gone in my merc.

I thought this was reasonable, but now wondering if i could put an after market one in for the same quality or better?
What are your thouhts?
Many thanks in advance for any advise on my situation

If you are happy with the sound, I'd replacfe like-for-like. Going down the "upgrade" root can be fun, but addictive/expensive :)

And can easily sound worse if the speakers don't match well.

I had Comand UK replace one of mine, matching the original. It works very nicely. Two years later Comand UK replaced the headset. Excellent.
