Underseat Sub Standard Stereo

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have got a Ford Focus MK3.5 ST-1 and was thinking of adding a underseat sub to improve the bass as the standard Speakers don’t have much depth to them. I don’t want something over powering. Can I add a sub to the standard stereo? And has anyone on here done it before?

 

thanks

Aaron

I will google the low level rca. I might just have to take the radio out and have a look on the rear to see if there’s any sockets and buy a sub and look at the wiring. Never done one before but I understand electrics etc just knowing what bits I need.

Best fitting a 4AWG wiring kit 

If the underseat sub doesn't come with wiring; There's good "Vibe 4AWG" kits available from Halfords

Also fit a trip switch style fuse in the correct amp to match the amplifier for example 400w amplifier gets a 40Amp fuse or circuit breaker fit either one of choice; no more than 12" from the battery positive, I've fitted mine on side of the battery box.
