Great to hear you enjoying the system man. I know myself what a big difference having a dedicated Mono amp for the sub compared to running it on the bridged channel. The punch from the sub and the mids/highs from the Focals are a potent combination. I liked on the Rather Be song that there is a good range of frenquencies.


When you get it all sorted Kieran and you got 30-60min, you should look into using this test cd that I found to fine tune all the frequencies. I took nearly 1hr for myself but the end result was well worth it.

It's on my dropbox and you should be able to download it. It's recorded at a high quality and helps with sorting out all the crossover points etc. 


Can't wait to hear and see the video  :)

Congratulations are in order and definitely right about your priorities. 


With regards to ideas, may I suggest sound deadening parts or the whole car if you already have a decent sound system in. The effort is definitely worth the end result and the ride is much quieter. If you need any info, give me a shout a I did a lot of research and still trying to find the most efficient and cost effective way to get it done. 


Also, maybe trying to colour code the fog light surrounds if you have paint left over while tackling the current paint issues.

Great to hear you getting stuck into the build there Kieran. Awesome components. Love that amp you planning to buy. Also, the capacitor will help battery drain and headlights dimming. Can't wait to see it all fitted. How's the speakers so far? Broken in yet?

#438688 Got My Focus Remapped Today

Posted by Hassen on 22 December 2014 - 11:04 AM

Great to hear that you got it sorted and that you had a positive experience with the people who did the remap as I was thinking of using them in the new year as well to remap and remove the dpf in my car. My Focus is the same model as yours and reaching about 103,000 miles soon. Like you said, the dpf is well past it's prime and I can definitely feel the car being less powerful. It has had the egr blanked and has a tuning box which has been performing admirably over the last 2 years. The tuning box has paid for itself by saving me fuel and I think next year it's time to get the dpf out to avoid any more problems in the future. 


If you don't mind me asking, how much did the remap cost in the end? In a few months time, I will email them to get a quote for remap+dpf removal. I will take out the tuning box then and probably sell it.

You nailed it there Kieran. The frequency range of the Focal's are pretty impressive but also, when you do tune it once the sub is installed, you will find that it needs very little eq changes as with the eq flat, it still sounds decent. I tend to like the highs a bit more so I set it up that way.


Now you understand why I want to spend my hard earned dosh on a set for the house :P

I been dying to hear where the amp is fully working and how you finding the Focals Kieran. Do share :)

The whole setup looks so sweet. I must say the hydrodipping is really well done and imho looks nicer than the wrap. Good use of the carbon wrap for the amp.
To both Kieran and Lenny, I just got an Ebay alert this morning that the price of the JL Audio Jx500/1 monoblock has been reduced. I have not checked the 250 version. Worth a look on Ebay and I will dig up the link and post it. That one also comes with the optional bass cable. Pretty sweet deal. I am tempted myself to get it and sell my one lol

Oh I really like the usb port. And how does the aux link in to it? It's very neat. My current setup is a wire from the back of my head unit just tucked by the side of the console. How's the USB powered?

Lenny, so sorry to hear about your son. Hope he is being taken care of and looked after well. Like you said, he is in good hands and he seems a strong lad, like his dada. I wish him and your family all the best.


If you need anything medically related or just want to talk, you know where I am. I know all too well how distressing it can be seeing a wee little one with all the tubes etc. With antibiotics and good care he should be better soon. Good prognosis I reckon as it's only in 1 lung.
