I upgraded my fiesta 1.4 zetec 2003 standard stereo to a SONY BT4000U :)

however the bass needs a bit of a kick

Any one got any good ideas of subwoofers around £120 range (preferably twin subs)

i was considering Bassface 12" twin subs ( http://tinyurl.com/mt2uvxm ). are these any good?

im new to the car sub and stereo world! (my first car!!)

 

thanks :)  :)

I've had Fusion encounter range fitted before and found them easy to fit aswell as top quality

12" fusion encounter sub with built in amp on the side
Two component 6.5" in custom box's
Parcel shelf fitted with two fusion reactor 6x9's with half inch plywood spacers to prevent scuffing the sub
Front then
Two 4" fusion encounter with JVC tweeters mounted in the doors.

That setup looks great! do you think 1 or 2 subwoofers would be better. and have you heard anything or reviews about bassface twin 12" subs? i want to get them but im not 100% sure on sound quality as it is a less known brand

i sold mine not so long ago. i had a kappa 122.7 in a home made box to the correct spec, sub was switchable form 1 ohm independance to 4 ohm independance. i kept it on 1 ohm stable as i was running it of a 2 ohm (1 stable) single chanel sony xm-1s mono block amp which is 500w rms and i had the amp shipped in from america....... iot sounded brilliant, but my set up in my old scoob was better tho.... i had to shrink down (misses moaning) and car changing

un less they think that bridging a stereo amplifier will work... a monoblock is a single chanel amp that is specificaly made for subs.....

 

What i have now is a 10" dimond audio sub again in a home made sealed box with  my other sony xm-1s amp...

Small turbo means less lag and more instant power,
The starlet was faster than my now remapped focus,ha
I do dearly miss that little car, I still shed a tear :(
I sold it in 2007 for 1,100
