Ford focus sony 9 speaker sound system

Recommended Posts

Hi guys (and ladies).

I'm expecting my new ford focus in about two weeks and it comes with 9 sony Speakers.
After a few hours on the Web I found out that there is no sub.
Sounds strange why have 9 mids/tweeters and no sub, so I would like to ask you if you have any experience of how it sounds.
Also found out that ford sells an amplified sub (pioneer ts-wx110a) for about 220€
Worth the money?
How do the 9 sony sound?

There might be  a thread about this but unfortunately I can't do any searches in the forum from my tablet.

If so is, please be so kind and take me there.

Thanks in advance  :)

I believe the sub was an option when you ordered the car or might be only available on the Titanium X. I have the sub in my car.

I don't think the sub makes a great deal of difference as long as you have the premium Speakers and Hu.

I had the 9 speaker setup in my mk3 and it sounded better than my mk3.5 with sub until they fixed it with a software update. Even now I wouldn't say it sounds any better than the mk3 without sub.

I haven't heard the 9 speaker setup in the mk3.5 but can't imagine it's any different unless Ford have artificially made it sound worse to make the sub system sound more like an upgrade....

How does it sound Andy?

What do you mean with premium Speakers Alex? I've been trying to find info about them but it's almost impossible. 

The only thing I know is that they are sony and they are optional only for the titanium (we don't have any X here, plain titanium).

The ST and RS are offered with 10 sony Speakers as optional where I would think the 10th one is the sub.

So they've made an upgrade to downgrade the sound? Lol

What a fraud...

Common place for most, if not all manufacturers.  You think Mazda are fitting "real" Bose Speakers in a cheapo little Mazda 1?

Well yes, why wouldn't they? I would imagine that they would cost them next to nothing or nothing, as bose gets their brand advertised.

But the contrary doesn't surprise me either.

Lmao Jamie!

Dan Alex. I was hoping the money I spent was worth it :D

It didn't cost me much, about 200€ but if I'll have to spend another, let's say a 1000 then...

Should have asked before.

Anyways, I'm not an audiophile, so it might sound OK to me, let's hope so.

I’m not even sure you need a sub. Are you driving around the hud, chicken winging it with rap blasting?

 

ive the Sony 9 speaker set up and plenty of base

I had a mk3 titanium x focus with tne 9 Speakers and it sou dedicated very good. However I did then introduce an amp to drive infiniti Speakers and a boxed 8" Alpine sub and the difference was very very noticeable.
The sub that Ford fit in the boot is *****. I've tested it in a ST I tested.
If you do want a sub then spend £125 on the Alpine SWE 105 8" sub. It's the best by far for the money and even 5 times the money.

Quick correction. Alpine SWE 815 brilliant sub and still leaves room in the boot for a pram, a large suitcase and a couple of holdalls. I know coz I've had it all in my last focus.

Well I'm driving from point a to b with closed windows but playing loud. Most of the times heavy metal so I don't really need sub kick. Just wanna enjoy my sound.

I wish I could afford some 2-3k to better it but it's out of my budget.

125 for the alpine? That's less than the pioneer they fit at ford!

What about the dashboard tweeter, the 9th one? Some people have been disconnecting it.

The dash speaker is a well placed one. Do go for the Alpine sub. I'm into metal and have been since it all started and the Alpine compliments metal to a T and it props up the cars standard Speakers too. The Alpine has its own remote control so you can adjust the level of bass and it's frequency.
My system including its installation cost less than a grand. Feck paying anything more than that.

Found it for even less here, 110€ + shipping.  The only thing is that it's kinda big compared to the pioneer one
