#449933 My Focus 1.6 Tdci Zetec (2010)

Posted by Hassen on Today, 03:18 PM

I know the feeling :)
Had to do it with my own remap, lowering, exhaust and dpf removal, four seperate days

Its a blind faith, some say a cruel waste, but it will always give you that sweet sensation!!

 

Lenny, quoting songs again : Chase & Status Feat Liam Bailey - Blind Faith  :rolleyes:

Maybe try some of the print shops in Dublin who do wraps?

Agreed, Ebay is brilliant for getting random things like that rather than looking around in the shops. Best bit of it all, it's open 24/7! Just don't drink and Ebay  :P

That Red Bull vinyl looks ace. I can so see this with the capacitor installed in your car and people asking "What's that for?" with the wires sticking out  :)

Here's a link mate fast shipping too:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121544675832

The Irish company "Baby elegance" manufacture the "Beep Twist" travel systems fold flat and fit in the boot compartment with around 3" of a gap between the frame and the sub enclosure,
But it would make contact if you enthusiastically took a right turn :)
Here's the website: http://www.babyelega...ages/999-bundle
I was dancing like Moog at the Dyno when collecting the parcels mate was epic.
Was nervous at casting out so much line before i caught the salmon but now he's in the bag I'm feeling pretty Euphoric yo!! :)

I've also sourced a supplier of Bosch S4 007 battery's for 85 inc. VAT ill keep you updated on this if it comes through successfully next month. Halfords were 140

 

I had a look at the Baby Elegance website. Interesting stuff but I think we are covered. This new baby will prob end up using what the old baby had lol.

 

Dancing like Marty and Moog: We were just watching a bit of Kei to The City and they were both dancing in a carpark in Japan. 

 

Keep me posted about the Bosch battery and at that price, it's a great deal!

It's all starting to take shape now. You must have been like a kid on Christmas morning when the deliveries came. I totally agree with you when it comes to JL Audio products. I have the same sub as you and an older model mono amp. Btw, was the sub grill expensive? I might be tempted to get one to protect it as the pram keeps hitting the sub when it's the boot.

Had a good laugh reading the last few posts.
The guy selling the Focal is selling it for €200 but I reckon he would be open to an offer. Think brand new they retail around £200 on Ebay. One guy is selling a used set for £180. I will find some links once I am on the computer and will post it to your thread. Best thing though would be to have the same speakers front and rear.

Congratulations on the new arrival! And don't worry,once he is out of the baby phase, you will be back full on moding the car

Just saw these Lenny and I think they are a bargain at that price. I have the exact same. Not sure if you would be tempted :)

#447172 Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub

Posted by Hassen on 21 January 2015 - 10:41 PM

You know already what I will say to get for the rear speakers :P Maybe consider another set of Focals, but depending on budget, you could get away with just a lower end set, which would still be better than most other manufactures and match the front ones. Or go for broke and get the same for the rears, which would be wicked!

 

Looking forward to the surprise mods. As for lowering, you are probably right about it if the roads are going to wreck it. White alloys are a huge pain to keep clean. I can barely keep my stock silver ones clean  :unsure:

Posted by Hassen on 21 January 2015 - 02:57 PM

Weather has been dreadful here. I am waiting for it to clear up then mini valet time!

 

As for the rear speakers, mine are completely dimmed down as I found out it really muddles the quality coming from the front. I rarely have passengers in the rear as well, but if there are any, I can always bring the level up with the fader. Once you have the sub running off the Mono amp, you could get a better set of coaxials and wire them up to the Blaupunkt amp such that with the double din unit then, you can crossfade, back/front and left/right. 

 

You still thinking of going to the Ford Fair?

Also, any thoughts of lowering the car yet? As I see you got some nice alloys there! I have seen a few Fiesta's with your car colour on white alloys. Tempted?  :)

Messy indeed. You should see the sorry state of my car driving around the midlands here. It badly needs a wash but I am waiting for the weather to clear a bit before sending it over to get a mini valet.

 

How's the sound system keeping you entertained?

One word: WOW! Must have taken you a while to set it all up.

 

And yea, I tend to think the same about ported versus sealed enclosure. I had a 12 inch ported sub as my first ever one. It was loud, shook the car all over but was not defined at all. Then had a sealed 10 inch sub, the Vibe one and realised that it was much musical. The current one fits the bill so much better. It's not loud but very clear and concise. For the money I paid for it, I think it was a great find.

Hope you get sorted with the electrical gremlins man. I know nothing about it and sadly can't help. Only thing I was told for my setup was not to run the audio system without starting the car up first as it would definitely kill my battery. I didn't dare to try otherwise lol

I know what you mean there Lenny. Fair point and I get stopped over enough times as it is around the midlands. Car and driver just look dodgy lol.

 

Btw, in that car setup you posted above, how many subs did you have? I see the box with the Fusion sub but there are 2 more ?speakers on the side? Or small speakers? Plus the 2 on the rear parcel shelf and I am guessing 2 more in the front!
