Would new speakers help?

I recently installed a new CD receiver in my 1987 Carrera. It is a Blaupunkt Indianapolis(40 watts). It was cheap and I bought it to play the odd CD. It works well but of course the sound quality isn"t great. Would upgraded speakers(same size) make any significant difference. I am not interested in installing an amp or doing any cutting.

Also can the speakers be installed without taking the door panels off?

Thanks in advance.

Speakers will make an improvement - door speakers are a snap - just remove the door pocket to gain access. The rear shelf is a little tighter. The stock hole is very small by today's standard - Infinity makes a set that go right in the front - for the rear I had to make a riser to compensate for the bigger magnate. I'm sure there's at least one make that will drop in, just do a search. It made a huge difference for me over the stock speakers and I'm only running 45 watts a side.

Yes, they will help immensely. Even if you just put new speakers in the old holes. I went with MB Quart 6 1/2" speakers which required me building a plate to attach to the door and then I attached the speakers to that but there are drop in units that will fit. Do a search and you'll see the suggestions. You can search for Rod Birch at Car Audio Innovations or something like that and see what will fit.
