Did you not buy it directly from superchips like?

 

No, through work for cost price.

 

Was uncrackable* ;)

 

Lol, very true. It was only a matter of time, shame Mountune gave it up to work on the ST.

In Topic: Fiesta Mk 7 With Puddle Lights In Door Mirrors

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows if puddle lights (approach lights) in the power fold door mirrors were ever available as standard in the mark 7 2008-2012 Fiesta? Cheers :)

Nope, its a new gadget on the mk7.5 to make us mk7'ers fill with hate.

Old amp out, 4-channel in. The RCA converter was removed as the amp had a high level input and there was no room for an extra converter behind the Sony. Fronts had a channel each and the rear (running the sub) was bridged across the last 2. This enables me to control the sub level through the Sony, turning down when I have small guests and up when the mood takes me. While running the cables, I had a mad 5 minutes and removed all the rear interior. I sound deadened the rear quarters and boot floor, and stuffed with acoustic foam and felt, all of which will prevent road noise and bass vibrations.  

 

Time for the box. I wanted to still be able to use the boot so I went for a side mount. The side of the mk7 boot is flat so there was no need for a custom fibreglass box, an MDF structure cut to fit the depth of the boot would do the trick.

The inside was filled with foam to increase the volume and made airtight with bathroom sealant. Acoustic cloth ordered for trimming to match the boot, should be here next week.

 

The amp powered up with no issues and because it only has basic settings (hi/low/full crossover ranges and bass boost) it didn't take much fiddling to have the fronts and sub working together. The Sony was set to full front/half rear which gives me the option of more or less bass, or sub off just by adjusting the balance. Across all types of music the system performed very well giving its limits, the only vibrations were from the actual door trims. I would imagine I need something between the trim and inner panel to stop movement, or turn the stereo up louder lol!

Busy busy! A small lottery win helped finance my next steps, purchases first.

 

Small 4 channel amp so I can add a sub to the system.

New number plates.

Sound proofing materials (foil backed sound deadener, 20mm felt, acoustic foam)

18mm MDF

First job was to change the plastic speaker mounts to MDF rings and deaden the doors, one got done today between showers (no photos I'm afraid). After putting the door back together, a test between front speakers (bass turned up more than usual) showed the 'deadened' door to give tighter bass and no rattle. Can't wait to get the other side done, should take photo's this time.

 

 


In Topic: Just completed customer survey

I had the 'tick all the satisfactory' speech from TCH in Peterborough, I had no issues with the service other than they make the prices up as they go so they got marked down for pressurising me into giving good feedback. Seems the service is all about targets rather than happy customers.
