thank you very much that is a great help.
The standard sound system on the xk8 doesn't have an amp. It is simply powered by the head unit. The speakers are made by phillips and are paper. You have many options when replacing this system. The speaker openings are 6". The back 'speaker plate' can be cut fairly easily to accomodate whatever size speaker you like. Now the sub has been a source of differing opinions and you'll have to decide for yourself what to do about this.

I used JL Audio seperates in the front because I didn't want to cut the stock opening. I also used JL Audio 2 way's in the rear temporarily . I have yet to install my amp which (when installed) will go direct on top/behind of the cd changer (trunk).

Hope this helps.
