St-3 Front Speakers More Detail.

24 September 2014 - 01:54 PM

Ok so I took the door panel off again today to have a better look at the front speakers and also managed to take some better photos so you can see just whats there. 

You can see the distance from the window glass to the speaker bracket is just over 2" (55mm).  I have fitted a speaker adapter which I picked on from Ebay for £7.99 and this then gives just over 3" (80mm) clearance.  The other photos just show the speaker in various angles.


Hope this gives you some ideas.


Some New St-3 Photos

So spent some time today polishing my car and took some new photos, I think they look way better than the previous ones I took.

Suggestions For Front Speakers

16 September 2014 - 10:06 PM

Still trying to work out what speakers to get to replace the standard Sony ones in the front of my ST3.  Looking for a full rich, but not overly bright sound, with good detail and decent bass,


Any ideas?

Gaps In Headlights

14 September 2014 - 10:00 PM

Hi Guys


Ok so I replaced the bulbs the other day and obviously had to remove the lights from the car.  I noticed today however that there are quite big gaps at the front of the lights between the lights and the bodywork.  Not sure if it was like this before I removed them or not.  The thing is they seemed to fit back in pretty easily and all the screw holes matched up easily.


Have I done something wrong?

Changing Speakers On St

09 September 2014 - 07:17 PM

So I've had my ST-3 for a week now and absolutely loving it.  However I am really dissapointed in the sound quality of the Entertainment System.  Its very hollow and dull sounding with very poor bass.  I had a ZS with the standard Ford system and, to me, this sounded far superior, [particularly tonally.


So I think I might change the speakers but have a few questions. 


Firstly am I going to benefit by just changing the front speakers (on the idea that the rears are firing behind the seats so not heard like the fronts). 


How easy are they to change?  I know the fronts require the door cards to come off but what about the rears.  Someone said that the grills just pop out but I can see no way for this to happen as they appear to be part of the whole rear door card and not removable on there own.


What kind of speaker to go for.  I have always used Pioneers when I changed them in previous cars.  I always liked their "warm" bassy sound, any other suggestions though.  I think they are 6.5" so that will be co-axial for the rear and component for the front.


Any suggestions or tips would be really appreciated.
