It would be nice to catalog some aftermarket headunit pics so if anyone is thinking of upgrading a headunit they will know how it looks in the focus!

Please include
1. Headunit model
2. Facia adaptor info
3. Wiring loom adaptor info
4. Headunit features

picked up my new 2 din tonight from TNT.

but i have a problem allready, the unit is 100x182 mm and the surround inside edge is 118x193mm so i have a nice big gap all round.

looks like i am going to need a cage to help me out.

 

here is a list of items i have so far-

 

unit

http://b2b.eonon.com...duct_no=G2103VE

 

 

surround

http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649

 

wiring harness

http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1423.l2649

 

cage

http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1423.l2648

 

 

and last but not least to improve radio signal ( poor due to smartcam )

 

radio booster

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item5aeac14430

 

if any one of you kind chaps can think of any thing else i need please let me know.

 

with a bit of luck i can get it fitted this weekend as long as the parts are all here.

then in a couple of weeks carbon fibre the puppy.

That unit looks realy nice billybob66 cant wait to see it in dash! have you got the adaptor for steering wheel controls? Hope you get the fitment sorted!

 

I take it you have the silver interior? im thinking carbon wrap is the only real way of tieing in the black unit with the rest of the interior?

hi focus jonny,

 

not got the steering wheel control adapter, having a look on friday morning around a few car shops at what conectors i can find.

 

as for the interior well mine is like a dark red wood effect, got a feeling the unit and the red will clash a bit.

 

going to do the black carbon and also change the three heater controls at the same time, might go for the silver with the black ring around them.

 

gonna try and take photos as i go along when i swap them over the weekend, cage arriving permitting. :)

hi jacksargent93

 

there are a few prices dependent on who you get it of and if you get the maps,

 

here is a link to a few sellers,

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...cat=0&_from=R40

 

or just search Eonon on ebay and you get quite a lot to choose from,

FYI, I have put together a guide on fitting an aftermarket head unit in a focus. A link to it can be found in my signature.

Have a mooch if its of any use

I have also put together a guide on creating a very convicing dummy head unit

Let us know how you get on with the headunit, as when I was asking for advice I was told to steer clear of these type, and put the few extra quid towards a named one, which I did in the end. Which would then have also enabled you to buy the cage/surround/fascia/wiring harness and patch lead in one package for around 60 notes. Why not fit a reverse camera while you now have the ability too,,,,,,, go on, you know you want too lol. 

 

Here is one of mine fitted JVC something or other, bluetooth (with seperate mic) reverse camera, patch lead for stalk controls, rear usb, fitted into glovebox out the way. Also has a removable face plate to deter those with itchy fingers lol. DVD player, ability to load my own photos to use as backgrounds, great sound quality, overall very pleased with it  :D

Thats a lot of head unit changes Stoney! But i think everyone will agree with every change your dash has got far nicer looking! I really like the OEM look i think it suits the focus the best but why did ford not release an ipod/usb stick friendly unit?

I like to keep my radios OEM but it doesn't mean I have to stick with the original boring thing.

I couldn't justify to myself buying an aftermarket radio when I find the OEM ones produce adequate enough sound quality for me.

Fitting the last one also opened up the opportunity to do a full RS carbon dash effect (apart from the centre console that is but that may be the next project).

 

 

 

Radio trim, garage door and switch panel (going from asphalt grey buttons to silver ones)

Hi!

 

Replaced the Ford 6000CD with a Pioneer DEH-80PRS

 

Features:

 

3-Way active Network

Auto Time Alignment and Eq

 

I also replaced woofers an tweeters in the front doors and put a 2x12" subwoofer box in the back. And disconnected the speakers in rear doors.

 

Found fascia and wiring loom on Ebay.co.uk.

Here are some schematics showing the stereo installation:

I also reinforced the electrical installation:

And did some other work to increase the sound quality:

Sorry for my bad english - but I am Norwegian :)

 

Edit: I have plenty more pics showing everything on how to replace speakers in front doors etc.
