#407357 Irish Meet August 2014

Posted by Hassen on 08 September 2014 - 05:37 PM

Sounds good mate i wouldn't take it for free though id pay you for it,
Ill be in touch soon but if you get another offer on it in the meantime don't hold out for me mate.

Last thing on my mind :lol: bass first buggy second lol ill have a look at your build thread to see how much the custom fit sub enclosure was aswell looks very tidy mate,
I should have taken a picture of it while you had the boot open at the meet, and the deep base from the system was mental :) 
I started back to work today on light duties only, so I'm not on shift and banned from overtime while on the light duties, end result: i will fit a sub and require your assistance in fitting but it may be January before I'm in a position to piece it all together.

Airside Ford host an RS Owners Club Ireland meet every year in June,
I was thinking perhaps next year i could arrange a FOC meet in the same location across the road from Airside Ford,
Then we could view and chat to the guys at RSOC aswell as each other plenty of pictures to be taken and a lot of ford,
If not an official FOC meet on the day,
Ill be attending the RSOC show in Airside Ford anyways and ill report on here with images from the day, if anyone wants to come with all welcome.

The carpark next to the beach in Malahide was a brilliant location aswell Hassan, plenty of green area for the kids to safely run around aswell and as you said football,
Hopefully gather enough members for a game of five aside next year :)


Definitely have a look at the build thread for ideas. The custom fit sub enclosure is very handy as it keeps weight down and the boot is still very usable. I have managed to fit a few suitcases in it with the new enclosure, which wouldn't be possible with the old subwoofer. The deep bass is due to the enclosure matching the specs for the subwoofer. I had the JL Audio sub in the Vibe enclosure before but the bass was never as clear and deep as it is now. I will keep the Vibe subwoofer on Adverts but so far I am getting just silly offers and to be honest, I have got my moneys worth from it using it everyday for nearly a year. I will not be taking any money from you for it. Not up for discussion. Consider it good karma coming your way for all the help you have given to all of us here on the forums :)


Good to hear you are back at work. Don't overdo it now and before you know it, you will be back in full swing :)


That's a brilliant idea to time the next FOC Ireland meet with the RSOC meet. When is the next one on btw?


The spot in Malahide beach was not bad now. Never been there and had only seen it on Google Street view. Glad we had enough spaces for the car. 5 aside next sound like a hoot.

I actually still have my fitting kit from the previous install at home and it's your too Lenny if you want it. 


Also, found you a decent amp, brand new according to the seller on Adverts. It's 75W RMS @4ohms x 4 channels and 2x200W RMS in bridged mode. Should work well with the subwoofer. Room to build on after. It has the same specs as my amp but newer and more efficient. I reckon the seller will take less for it as there are no offers at all on it.

And you still retain enough boot space for family use. Win win :)

It makes a big difference to the sound. If you want, you can have my old Vibe 10 passive sub for free. It's does decent sound and it's a good starting point. All you would need is a good 4 channel amp that you could further build on and a wiring kit. Use 2 channel in bridged mode to power the sub and in the future use the other 2 channel to power the front speakers when you're ready for an upgrade. All in, less than €200 or even less for a second hand amp. Plenty on Adverts. Would be very happy to help you out if you need to fit it or find parts :)

Like others have said it before, fantastic day out. Great people, flowing conversation and sunny day to put the cherry on top. Sadly had to leave a bit early. 
Thanks a million to everyone for coming and to Lenny for organising the gift to mark the occasion. Already have a spot on the mantle piece for it :)

I am just uploading the pictures of today on the computer. Will have to process them and then upload. Keep an eye out for them.


Also, have to say thanks to the significant others and children for coming along :)


Credit to all of ye for your cars. The stories behind each one was great to hear from the people who went through it. Got some great ideas for mods to do next


Hi all I know it is September but can ye add me to the list for the next meet as I am new to the Forum. I am living Co Limerick but I can travel to Portlaoise or Dublin as it it easy to get to on the motor ways. Chat soon Cheers Ray :)


Welcome to the forums Ray. Will let you know about the next meet for sure :)

Shall i bring the blue overalls?


Think we will get away without them. The blanking plate didn't turn up in time sadly. I will have to fit it in myself but I am sure with your guide it shouldn't be too hard. 


In honour of the meet for tomorrow, I think this is a good tune to get us all in the party mood :)
