#430674 "taking Oval To Blue Horizon" Lenny's Build Thread 2010-2015

Posted by Hassen on Yesterday, 11:36 PM

Great read through the progress Lenny. Christmas definitely came early for you :)
That headunit is class. I was just reading through it's specs and it's well worth the money, just for the sound quality. Like you said, it already sounds awesome through the stock speakers. Imagine how they will sound once you get the upgraded ones and a sub to match it. 

 

Must have been good fun today working on the car again. I reckon it was all worth the effort. Looks like your plan is well under way and soon enough it will all be sorted. 

 

Looking forward to the progress and the future updates :)

 

p.s: How did you manage to get the time off from baby duties? :P

Oh yea, I did see your thread. I reckon a dry day and then I will get all the seats cleaned. Had the car for just over 2 years and now it deserves a good deep clean. Cheers for the info :)

Its a credto you keeping it in showroom condition mate,
I dont let my lot eat in the car although it says it on the rear window :lol: vicki ruins it though and lets them do whatever
Spilt a bottle of club orange on front passenger seat today caused ripples in the rock pools off the coast of conamara ;)

 

I try my best but like yourself, I have now a nasty liquid stain on my front passenger seat made by a bottle of juice. I shall not name the culprit :P

My little one knows not to make a mess in the car as he like the Focus I think as much as I do. The other day he goes to me while driving "Dada", pause, "I like your Focus sometimes" Little messer :P

 

I hope you get your club orange disaster sorted. Any ideas on how to remove the stain from my front seat? I was thinking hot soapy water with Fairy Liquid and a soft sponge.

+1 for the Boom Mats. Definitely worth the money just to protect the speakers from water and like you said, they are pricey and prone to not like water. 

 

I second your idea in doing the work in parts. I did the same and at every stage, you get the reward of feeling the difference from the previous step. e.g change the stock speakers to the Focal ones, then adding the sound deadening. 

 

No rush on the link. Anything car related is taking a back seat till at least July next year. The LED is a great idea though.

Oh and the link to the LED strip. That will definitely come in handy as the one pad of LEDs is not enough at the moment to illuminate the whole boot. Where does the LED strip get the power from?

 

Lenny, you are too kind. I try my bed to keep it clean. Hard at times with a 3 year old boy :P

Ah, that amp as you can tell was well loved and looked after. I am still disappointed that I had to sell it :P As I always thought of putting it in my wife's car when I did get the funds to upgrade her sound system. Then again, she probably wouldn't appreciate it as much as you would :P

 

Forgot to say, excellent choice with the Focal speakers mate. I am dying to hear what you think of them as they are the new Flax cone ones and are supposed to have a superior sound. Even better than the ones I have as mine are older. Reckon with that sub and amp, it's going to be a quality system.

 

You still thinking of using sound deadening around the car?

 

Thanks for the link for the 90 degree RCA adapter. I will have to get some for my car as well as they are very neat and tidy.

Loving the install. Very clean and retaining most of the boot space. I like how you managed to show off the amplifier while making clean wiring parts. Best bit for me is the LED strip. I might have to do that to mine as well. It's understated and functional. Great idea. 

 

Lastly, you made that amp look so much better in your install than when I had it. Nicely done Kieran :)

Man, if you lived closer, I would be there in a flash. Sadly, I am in Ireland. Plus, all car funds have been on halt till the summer of next year. I think I might have to have a proper look at a BMW with that colour alloy next time I see one. My car is Panther Black and it might not suit.

Love that colour. Very close to the new ST 18 inch alloys. Saving that code for next year when the alloys get refurbished. Thanks a million :)

Looking better by the day. Liking the colour coded rear diffuser. Different from others.

 

Btw, do you have the colour code for the colour used for your alloy wheels? Thanks :)
