#398724 Pictures Rs Owners Club Ireland Meet @ Bolands Ford New Ross Co. Wexford

Posted by Hassen on 17 August 2014 - 08:45 PM

Thanks for the pictures Lenny. Didn't know this was on or else I would have gone for a drive down there :P You got some lovely pictures there. Think my favourite is the Cosworth Escort with the tail in blue. That is a thing of beauty and quite rare. 

 

Next year, I think you should enter your car. Some great modelling there by Vicki :)

Looking very good indeed. Like how you didn't go for black for the wheels. Dark blue? :)




#398382 2014 Upgrades

Posted by Hassen on 16 August 2014 - 10:03 PM

Small update. I have had the new setup for a few weeks now and I think the speakers are well broken in. Still not 100% satisfied as on the motorway, the ambient noise levels are quite annoying. Apart from that, I am very happy with the sound quality in the car. 

 

I have a few questions though:

 

1. My current amp is rated at 70W rms x 4 channels. My Front Speakers are rated at 80W rms (Focal 165KR). Will I notice any improvement by upgrading the amplifier? Reading up online, suggestions was to have an amplifier pushing around 120W rms to extract the most of my speakers. If this was true, any 4 channel amplifiers that you guys could recommend that will not break the budget? 

 

2. Been doing a bit of research online after hearing about the Audison Bit Ten processor. Very tempted to get one. Any thoughts about it? 

 

 

Next planning to try to record the current system in 1080p and also get more Silent Coat to lay on the floor of the car.

So far, haven't decided on a place and will try to find one that would suit most people.

Suggestions for places welcomed. So far we have 4 people interested. Thought there was more of us in Ireland on the forums. Maybe if you know anyone interested to spread the word :)

Cheers

+1 for getting a sub first as you get the most for your money. You will hear a big difference :)

I think once you start getting the sound upgrade, it's an ongoing process then. Myself, I basically did it in steps over the course of 1 year. That way, I heard the difference after a new part was installed. This article, which I found afterwards, is a nice way to think of your upgrade path.

#395969 I Want Subtle Please

Posted by Hassen on 09 August 2014 - 10:16 PM

Nice list of planned mods. If I may suggest along with the lowering springs to get a set of Bilstein dampers if the current ones are on the way out. They come in a pack, EIbach Bilstein B12 for the Focus. I am planning to get them myself sometime next year, fingers crossed :)

Hi guys.

 

Just thinking if anyone living in Ireland (North and Republic) would be interested in a meet somewhere in the Republic of Ireland at the end of August. All members welcome. Would be nice to finally meet other members in person.

 

Thoughts, ideas and recommendations would be appreciated :)

Oh not a bad idea for the MCM decal. Now I have 2 options and one for the Focal one. Sweet! Cheers :)

Really like the colour coded front surrounds and bonnet lip. Added on my to do list next! Think our cars have the same option pack on them. I have the same alloys and tinted rear windows as yours. At least your alloys are not as kerbed as mine are. Lovely looking motor :)

This will definitely add more kilowatts to your car now Lenny. Looks awesome! Gonna stick my kindly gifted sticker on the rear window, same spot as yours. Need to find a spot as well to stick my Focal sticker. Thanks again for the sticker man :)
