  1. Hi i currently have the Pioneer SPH-da120 unit fitted in my 08 focus but this is a predominantly Apple orientated piece of kit. I am about as anti-'crapple' as you can and own nothing 'ipoo' related! I am looking at upgrading my headunit to the 240BT unit which supports android auto. Does anybody fancy a swap plus cash or have any interest in buying my head unit so that i can put it towards upgrading to the Android friendly 240? Apologies if this should be in the for sale thread if so i will create a proper sale thread but at this moment in time i am just looking for interest to see what my options are.
  2. In case anyone doesn't know, Ford offer speaker upgrades which can be fitted at Ford dealers http://www.ford-accessories.co.uk/fiesta/2012/infotainment/audio?intcmp=other:acc:pdp:prod-list-view::select-product-group# I'm just wondering if anyone has had either the sub or speaker upgrade installed in Northern Ireland. If so, which dealer did it and would you mind sharing how much it was in total? I'm interested in having the sub (and potentially speakers) installed in my 2013 Fiesta Zetec S Ecoboost. I previously rang up Boucher road/Mallusk (can't remember which) in Belfast/Newtownabbey. They initially told me they don't offer speaker upgrades, and only checked after I explained that it is advertised on the Ford accessories website. They weren't able to give me an estimate of how much it would cost to install. Presumably they haven't done it before, and in the end I didn't bother as they didn't inspire me with any confidence and were generally unhelpful.
  3. Hi all. Just wanted to document and put a few pictures of the audio upgrade that I am planning for my wife's 2006 Seat Leon 1.6 R (petrol) MK2 audio system. I recently upgraded my own head unit in my Focus to the AVH-X8700BT and the previous unit, Pioneer AVH-X2500BT was not going to be used. Rather than sell it on, I decided to install it in my wife's car as she didn't have bluetooth, aux in etc. She's not overly concerned with sound quality unlike myself and would need more the functionality of handsfree bluetooth calling and music streaming. I plan on doing the upgrades step wise like I did in my own car. Phase one: Head unit upgrade with all wiring, fascia, adaptor, mic etc wires in. I think this will make the most noticeable impact in functionality and sound improvement. I have acquired most of the parts and only one needed to be picked up later on is a 3.5mm 1.8m Aux cable, just in case it's required down the line. 1. Fascia, ISO loom and stereo removal keys bought from Ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171470784318?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT 2. Headunit, wiring, USB extender, Mic, fascia surround, cage and stereo removal keys.
  4. Hi, I got an '07 Ford Fiesta Zetec with the 6000CD. I have bought an pioneer SPH-DA120 head unit along with fascia, adapters, etc. But how can I pass my iPhone USB cable from the rear of the head unit around to the front. Also the headunit comes with a wired Mic which I would like to have on the drivers side of the dash. And a GPS antenna needs to go on the top of the dashboard to work 'properly'. Basically, how can I get all these wires out from behind the headunit? Thanks
  5. I have a Ford Focus Zetec 2008 with the Sat Nav radio upgrade in it and I'm looking to swap it out for the Pioneer SPH-DA120 (but am open to options). Just looking for some tips on the things I may need to get this fitted, I know this is a double DIN aftermarket radio so I'm assuming I will need to buy a new fascia panel as well as a new cage(?). Does anyone know the type/how to find the type of kit that would make the current steering wheel stalk controls compatible with these aftermarket radios? I see Halford's offer a couple but are simply labelled "ford", are they compatible with all/most models or will I have to find a specific version for my car? Any tips on what to look for here? The current fascia panel I'm looking at is this but I'm going to check to see if the current cage is compatible that houses the Ford one at the moment to see if I can just get the plastic font part instead of the entire cage. Long shot: The sat nav directions from the current Ford radio come up on the centre of my dashboard (a distance to the next turn, an arrow and a road name) as well as on the screen itself, is there anyway I can get this back with an aftermarket system? (I'm assuming not). Thank for your help! Aaron

  9. This Guide is now available in PDF format to download and print if desired: Aftermarket Headunit Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5.pdf There are various types of aftermarket adaptor kits available on the market, Some are not that great and look quite bad when installed such as the kits in these two images: In my opinion neither of those installs look like a seamless upgrade , However Dynamic Sounds UK have came up trumps with this complete Mk2 & Mk2.5 Double Din Aftermarket Headunit fitting kit; The silver dash plate supplied in this kit is not identical to a standard Mk2 dash panel, Although it looks similar in picture its got the exact double din aftermarket sized cut out square in the centre for a seamless finish no additional frame, See link: http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/ford-focus-2006-double-din-car-stereo-fitting-kit-fascia-steering-control.html?search=focus%20double%20din The kit also comes with a patch lead of your choice allowing the factory steering stalk control to operate seamlessly with your aftermarket headunit. If your aftermarket headunit supports a reverse camera then you may also like this one from Dynamic Sounds replaces the boot handle incorporating the camera in to the handle. See link: http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/beat-cam-fd1-ford-mondeo-focus-cmos-number-plate-car-reverse-rear-view-camera.html Now at this point id like to mention; If you're like me and live in Ireland, your probably facing a hefty shipping charge to purchase these items from the UK, Not anymore :) Log on to Parcel Motel see link: http://www.parcelmotel.com/ Sign up for free, They give you an address in Antrim to have your parcels delivered to resulting in you getting free shipping from uk to Antrim, You only pay 3-15EUR shipping from Antrim to your local parcel collection point depending on parcel size, Id like to point out just how much stock items can be removed (if fitted) as you wont need them again. Particularly if you have factory fitted Bluetooth module and voice control, Remove stock face plate and unscrew the 4 Philips head M6 screws holding the headunit in place. Lift out headunit and unplug the aerial aswell as the ISO cable. If you have factory fitted Bluetooth you can remove the glovebox to access the module, they sell for around 80GBP on eBay ;) Helps recuperate the money spent on the bare essentials for aftermarket install. The Bluetooth module loom cant be removed its part of the main loom when factory fitted, however if your a member whom loves all the stock extras seeking to retrofit stock Bluetooth, your going to need to purchase the Bluetooth loom available as aftermarket part from ford, ford didn't fit to all models, The stock microphone also sells on eBay for 15GBP Remove interior light surround spread clips and lift it out: If you had factory fitted Bluetooth then you have voice control button on the steering stalk: They sell for 15-20GBP on eBay and you can pick up one without the voice button for 1-10GBP won't ever need the voice button again no point carrying it. Picked this one up on eBay auction for 2 GBP Win/Win Now that's all the stock components removed and discussed Back to aftermarket fitting: With stereo removed i plugged in the ISO conversion loom aerial adaptor and steering stalk patch lead that came supplied with the kit: The iso conversion loom that comes with the kit is fantastic, each cable has been printed on the cables to say what exactly it does, ideal for splicing in to cables. Now for the replacement dash panel fitting, Removed the two black side strips that the stock headunit screwed in to, They pull out Remove white clip aswell Supplied with the kit is: two M6 bolts four washers and two serrated nuts, Fitted the bolts with attached washer facing toward the rear of the car, Next part is to fit the fascia plate with bolts going through fascia plate tightening the dash surround to the main skeleton of the dash. Once the fascia plate has been bolted tight, The double din aftermarket sized stereo cage needs to be fitted, Here's whats in the box but no instructions i was completely like WTF!! This part is universal not model specific although it comes with the kit, The best video I've found that explains the building of the double din cage is below where a guy is fitting an aftermarket double din headunit to his Audi A4 most of the video is irrelevant to for but the building of the cage is 100% See video: Minutes 03:50 - 05:15 explains the double din aftermarket cage perfectly.
  10. UPDATE 19/01/2015 - I started this thread specifically for my sub enclosure. From there it grew into a general ICE thread. It's now turning into a general thread about mods/maintenance to/on my car. I also have topics on; Fiesta mk6 HID Retrofit - This topic shows how to fit Facelift head/tailights to a pre-facelift Fiesta mk6. It also explains how to install Bi-xenon projectors and HIDs without hurting the bank. I hope you enjoy reading, and subscribe to stay up to date! _______________________________________________________________________________ Few images of my custom sub box build... Just want to note now that I'm not building this box with competition specs in mind.. It's simply built to 1.) take up as little boot space as possible whilst 2.) providing more bass than the stock speakers. I'll be upgrading the rest of the audio in the car in due time! Just want to show off my amazing test of the box with a 6.5" "sub" although my box was designed for a 10" :) I'm using 12mm MDF and some strips of Ply to build my box. I'm also gluing all the joints with No Nails & Screws to make it as solid & airtight as possible. More pictures to follow once my sub, amp & carpet arrives! Fire away with any questions
