#443136 Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub

Posted by L666JER on 09 January 2015 - 12:31 PM

As speaker cable for cars goes, you can't beat this, it's incredibly thick.

Only downside is due to thickness, it's very difficult to run it through the car.

That's pretty much how I've got my frequency settings. Are you impressed with the difference the power capacitor has made? I was with mine.

I quite it looking standard. Surprises a few people lol.

 

Had a feeling you would say that.

 

Mine surprises people, looks fast but actually quite slow  :lol:




#442124 Pros And Cons Of Exhaust Trim

Yes it is :D
I was going to get the techs at ford to fit it for me before I collect the car as well as do some other little mods for me ;)


Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

 

Ah I gave up with the clamp things and screwed mine into the exhaust - not going anywhere  :D

Is it one of those clamp/bolt on things?

 

If so make sure you get a VERY good fit when you install it or it will be rattling around everywhere

 

(I know from experience)  :lol:

Have you still got the old Sony headunit Kieran?

 

Could do with it for one of my dad's XR3i's.




#441451 Mk5 Fiesta 1.3 - Looks A Bit Like A Zetec S And Custom Audio

Posted by L666JER on 03 January 2015 - 10:36 AM

For me the false floor was just to hide all of the wiring (of which there is a lot) as I wanted the amps to have as much air around them as possible and like you I needed something decent to screw down into rather than through the boot floor. I quite like to see everything laid out, but for you I can see why it was a problem.

 

The carpet I used was a spare boot carpet for the car that I had in the loft, so I cut it out to fit and then used some spray adhesive (I too was surprised with how strong it was).

 

The quick released connector for the speakers is just a plastic connector with male/female banana plugs within it. (link below)

Unfortunatly I cant get a double din unit in there (not quite big enough). I did have a single din pioneer in my other car but got rid of it after two months as I was so unhappy with the sound quality, so I'm a bit put of by them. ideally I would like another Sony. Perhaps this one.....http://www.halfords....-dab-radio#tab3 I really need one with three rca outputs (front, rear and sub) and this one offers that.

 

I was the same as you at first, just get a sub in there, but then found myself thinking "If I do this next bit then it will be so much better"  :)

My boot space is basically the back seats :D I rarely carry anything big - or have lots of passengers.

 

I did have everything screwed to the boot floor - it looked a mess and then after following yours and Lenny's installations went for a false floor which freed up a bit of room. 

 

The idea is that if I ever need to carry anything, the parcel shelf can be removed, along with the sub ( and the power capacitor can be slotted out (not quite as easy)) leaving the other four speakers in place.

 

Next thing to upgrade is the head unit I think.

 

BTW I haven't said but I've enjoyed reading your audio install thread.

#415142 Tax Disc No More

Posted by L666JER on 30 September 2014 - 08:24 PM

I'm gonna put my 1995 tax disk (first one) in on my mk3 fiesta - that will confuse people, if the car ever comes out of the garage :P

Haven't had much luck lately have you.

 

But it obviously wasn't the corsas fault - they do have steering column issues you know :P




#413540 Mk3 Escort - 5 Door Ghia Build Thread

This is probably one of the most thorough and detailed build threads I've seen. Brilliant read.

Heard that polybushes completely transform the ride. When is this looking to be on the road?

Do what I do.... :). Drop it down and floor it to leave them standing :)

 

So that's how you managed to do over 60 in a 30 zone :P Sorry, couldn't resist.

 

That's what I (try to) do, but they usually catch me up :(
