  1. Hi, I'm exactly coming from the same background, my previous car had a really nice system I put together with a really nice sub. I do like the sound quality in the focus but exactly like you say, above a certain volume it seems the bass actually decreases. I'm guessing this is some sort of method of allowing more volume and limiting distortion. That is why adding a subwoofer is something that probably cannot be added without an RCA output feed or a specific output designed for a subwoofer. I didn't get around to going to the auto store this week but I will probably drop by early next week and see what the options are. If anyone else finds out a Ford part number to add a sub then that would of course be ideal! I'll definitely write an update soon. I appreciate the feedback so far, I'm glad I found this forum. :-) -D
  2. Thanks for the reply. I think I'll take it in to a good car-audio store to have a look at it and give me some advice. I'll write an update here once I have some information so that perhaps others can also benefit. Cheers, -D
  3. Hi Everyone, I just received my new Ford Focus ecoboost 1.6. While I enjoy the sound from my Sony console (9 speaker system), I do wish to add a little more "uumph" to it. In the U.S they sell the Sony system with 10 speakers (and I know it comes with its own amp). Does anyone know if there is an easy way to add a subwoofer to this car on the original console? Does it have some RCA output or is there an amp hiding somewhere that I could use to power a sub? Much appreciated, -D
