This could be really useful mate, as I was thinking about doing this also. Don't know about the Ghia, but the stock speakers on the zetec are actually pretty good sound wise.

Sounds pretty badass! I like subs (have a massive one for the PC), but I have always been against adding them in cars, as they add weight. I have a proper steel spare wheel in the back, and I would hate to add anymore weight than what is there. Thought about removing the spare and the jack, but on the welsh roads round here, you daren't. You get a flat, your screwed!

As for removing the stereo, is it a pain in the backside with the ford units? I was going to swap the ford unit over to my kenwood stereo, but it seemed more trouble than it was worth.

Which upgrade have you gone for? I had mine upgraded last year to the Vibe Slicks, much better than the standard ones! Wouldn't mind a Bose upgrade though but ! :(

They don't seem bad at all, especially at £25 and a two year warranty. I got my Vibe ones for £45 a pair!
Fortunately I had mine fitted for me, but i think they did go in no bother (apart from taking most of the trim off to get to the speakers! ^_^)

Should be pretty straight forward to fit though. Hope they are as good as they sound to be!
