      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi, I'm exactly coming from the same background, my previous car had a really nice system I put together with a really nice sub. I do like the sound quality in the focus but exactly like you say, above a certain volume it seems the bass actually decreases. I'm guessing this is some sort of method of allowing more volume and limiting distortion. That is why adding a subwoofer is something that probably cannot be added without an RCA output feed or a specific output designed for a subwoofer. I didn't get around to going to the auto store this week but I will probably drop by early next week and see what the options are. If anyone else finds out a Ford part number to add a sub then that would of course be ideal! I'll definitely write an update soon. I appreciate the feedback so far, I'm glad I found this forum. :-) -D
  2. Thanks for the reply. I think I'll take it in to a good car-audio store to have a look at it and give me some advice. I'll write an update here once I have some information so that perhaps others can also benefit. Cheers, -D
  3. Hi Everyone, I just received my new Ford Focus ecoboost 1.6. While I enjoy the sound from my Sony console (9 speaker system), I do wish to add a little more "uumph" to it. In the U.S they sell the Sony system with 10 speakers (and I know it comes with its own amp). Does anyone know if there is an easy way to add a subwoofer to this car on the original console? Does it have some RCA output or is there an amp hiding somewhere that I could use to power a sub? Much appreciated, -D
