I would try a fourmasters retailer.
You can always talk to them about an oem as possible audio system. It will be expensive.

@RattyMcClelland or anyone else that can comment, if I decide to fit speakers myself, is the wiring plug and play? As in will the new speakers and tweeters plug straight in? I have never done that sort of thing before :oops:

No. You will have to cut the plug off the stock wiring unless you buy a plug adapter which I'm sure exists.
Pretty sure this will fit the fronts.

Rear speakers are acoustic feedback so best leave those as stock.

@RattyMcClelland I think we have had this conversation before :D and I am not convinced my car has the acoustic feedback system. Or it has been removed by the owner in Japan before I got it. Please see below pics and let me know your thoughts. The rear speakers are Clarion and the fronts are Pioneer. Either way, the system does not sound good haha

Get a photo of the middle section of the parcel shelf. The long rectangular block box is the acoustic feedback....if it's their. The smaller black box with copper coils in it (tdk) is the window Demister.

Those are the OEM connections, sonwhoever did those speakers wired in the original speaker connectors. Looks like it's been done properly
Even the rears look wired in fine. No acoustic feedback but the wiring if it did have it might be wrong.
Do the rear speakers fade front to back and left to right?

Cheers @RattyMcClelland I am going to owe you a beer or 3 after all this :). Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it :thumbup:

So, yes the rears can be balanced from left to right and faded from back to front and vice versa.

Does this mean all is good and I just need to change the speakers? If so, what connectors do I need to buy so whatever speakers I buy can be plugged into those oem connectors?
