  1. I believe your Corolla takes 4" in the front and 6.5"s in the rear, the same sizes as my Tercel. I use Kenwood 1079ie's in the front and 1689ie's in the back, and they sound great. They have a good power handling and great frequency response. They retail for about $60 and $100 respectively, but I paid about $90 total shopping around online. ~Jason
  2. 6 1/2's on the rear doors. You have a small clearance on those and may need to make sure you get speakers with a shallow depth.
  3. What you need to do is splice the wires on the back of the receiver to the bare wires of the harness, then just plug the harness into the vehicles matching harness, the ones that came out of your factory unit. The wires may have writing on them to indicate what is what.. if so, just match them up and splice. If not, you may have to do some research to determine what is what. The important wires are the yellow (constant power), red (switched ignition power), and black (ground). That'll get it up and running, then you have to figure out the speaker wires. If you need more help, let me know. ~Jason
  4. The easiest thing if you want to change those speakers is to get an adaptor that connects to the speakers on one end and to the vehicle's wiring harness on the other. They don't cost much, and some places (crutchfield.com in particular, but I don't know if they ship to UK) will give you one for free if you order from them. The harness just plugs right in to the existing one connected to the speaker, so you don't have to cut any wires and can easily put your factory speakers back in if you sell the car and want to keep the speakers. Those speakers are made by Pioneer, correct? I haven't heard those ones specifically, but Pioneer tends to make good sounding products, and the specs on those speakers are good. You won't need to replace anything else if you don't want to, but doing so won't hurt. It depends on what kind of sound quality you want. Ideally if you replace any speakers, you want to replace them all with voice-matched speakers to keep everything sounding best. But again, it all depends on what level of quality you want, and how much you want to spend. Whether to replace the head unit depends on whether you feel a need to do so. If it plays the media you want (cass, cd, mp3, whatever) and sounds decent then it may not be as much of a concern. It won't put out as much power as an aftermarket receiver or amp might, and the speakers you're looking at can definitely handle more power, but it again comes down to what you want out of your stereo and how much you want to spend on it. Feel free to ask you have more questions. ~Jason
