In Topic: Ford Fiesta Trend Radio Lacks Fader Function

13 September 2012 - 02:24 PM

Trend(s) with only the front speakes don´t have the fader function.

But it can be enabled through an update by your ford dealer.
(I know several people who have done it!)


I'm very interested in this. I asked my local dealer. They wanted to put a tester on it, but wouldn't guarantee that they could enable it - Of course they want to charge me even if they can't. Morons.

In Topic: Replacing Mk7 Speakers

11 August 2012 - 11:48 PM

I bought two pairs of JL Audio C3-650. They have a very nice sound. I bought these because I wanted speakers in both front and rear doors and have it installed seamless. This kit allows me to use the speakers as components in front and coaxials in rear, because you can mount the tweeter in the center of the speaker.

I haven't gotten around to install them in the rear doors yet, but piece of advice - DO buy some Dynamat or StP to to deaden the doors and panels. I didn't do it yet, and it completely ruins the bass response if you don't. Actually, this investment is probably the best upgrade you can do to your speakers without even upgrading them in the first place.

Another note about this kit - If you want to mount the tweeter in the original place (like I did), you need to heavily modify it with a Dremel or something else for chopping up plastics :)

They are the ones that dim slowly, "Theatre lights" are what Ford call the interior lights that dim.

Oh, so that's what I have in mine :)

Could you post a picture of the new light in operation when you get it fitted? will be interesting to see the difference!


There's a video of that on the dx site.

I'm not familar with those. Do you have a picture of what they look like? (i'm curious).

Technically LED's cannot be dimmed, but my Fiesta fades out the roof light slowly and that actually seem to work somewhat nicely anyway. You can see that it's not made for it, since it's not as "smooth" as it is with a regular bulb, but you probably won't really notice it.

I've heard that it shortens the lifetime of the LED's to dim them, so maybe they will wear out rather quickly in my Fiesta - Time will tell :)
