I recommed ditching the ICC's audio features altogether, and installing a aftermarket headunit, new wiring, amps, and speakers.

For a good drop in speaker, I started off with Hertz HCX-570's (but they're not their best until amped).

I'm going to go in a very different direction with my BA. Mine only has the prestige 6 stacker with the small gay LCD screen but will be ditching that for a BA GT or XR colour screen ICC with a touchscreen overlay all connected to a small PC located in the boot. As for speakers, I'm going for amplified 6" splits at the front and 6" 3ways in the rear driven off the factory ICC until funds are better. Here is a youtube link with the car pc, but mine has later model front end software than this one. I've got Centrafuse 2.0 with the latest aussie maps for my sat-nav.
