Speaker Upgrades...

Has anyone done any speaker upgrades in the SP220?
I'm looking to find a better sounding speaker to replace the factory ones in the ceiling...
Just wondering where to start looking...

No idea what you have but my over the bed speakers sounded horrible.
My geek engineer son said they were blown.
I didn't think so because we'd never turned them up that loud.
I pulled them out of the bottom of the cabinet over the head of our bed
and found them full of construction debris.
They had hole sawed the holes in the bottom of the cabinet and left
all that saw dust up in the false bottom of the cabinet.
Also the speakers caused the bottom of the cabinet to vibrate and the
wires for the speakers and the light were just laying in the false bottom.
This vibration caused the wires to dance on the bottom panel adding to the
horrible sounds.

I cleaned out the cavity as well as possible and stuffed fiber glass insulation
in around the speakers. This insulation keeps more debris from migrating
out of the corners onto the speakers and it stopped the wires from
dancing on the bottom panel.

Result was amazing. Now these speakers sound fine!
Maybe you have something similar.
Check the speaker itself for debris laying inside the speaker frame too.

Take a look, it's not hard to pull them out.
Good luck!

No we are pretty happy with our speakers. Seem to have more issues getting a good clear station. We eventually give up and stick in the iPod.
