Time to upgrade the interior sound to something he likes.
We started off this journey with a simple suggestion of an uber deck, the Clarion NX 702, Multimedia DVD player with Navigation, HD Radio, USB, iPod, Bluetooth and much more.
We then added sound deadening to the entire sides of the vehicle to cut down on road noise, keep unwanted heat out, and improve the sound quality of the interior; all done with Stinger's Road Kill brand.
The front sound stage received our Hybrid Audio's Stage 4 Clarus Component Speakers. A 6.5" midbass monster, a 20mm soft-dome tweeter and their competition grade crossovers.
The rear sound stage received our Hybrid Audio's Stage 1 Mirus Coaxial Speakers. These things, rested in their newly sealed and deadened side panels produced the much needed mid-bass this system was designed to produce. That and Hybrid's soft-dome 20mm tweeters front the sound stage up higher in the rear too.
There were no noticeable rattles in this thing that received over 40 sq.ft. of deadening, which is a good thing, as our Arc Audio Mini 4 channel amp pushed these badass speakers with 75 watts of pure RMS power. I placed the amp under the passenger seat with plenty of wire exposed, so that in a few short weeks/months, we can add another mini amp (mono block) for a subwoofer....then this system will be complete.
For now, this is simply the best sounding Ford Focus in the valley, and I'll put my word on that. This is what is to be expected when you know exactly what you want and there are products to fulfill these needs.
Pure headunit with good output, strong amp, quality speakers and reduced interior noise.....that's the recipe for success.
