MKII Audio Upgrade
Hey all, I bought a 2007 MKII Focus Zetec at Christmas time and I had a few questions about upgrading the audio system in it. Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised with the factory stereo in the car, it had good bass for a stock system and generally does the job well, it also has an iPod aux input so itís far from crappy. Itís not exactly exciting though, and I would like to upgrade but I had a few questions.
Firstly, Iíve read that the MK1 Focus that the US gets has roughly a 1.8 DIN space where the factory head unit sits? I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the MKII spot, it looks big, but I donít know, is there a measurement I can use as a reference for Ďdoubleí DIN?
Also, provided I can fit a double DIN unit in, Iím looking at the Alpine IVA W200E screen, it looks brilliant but does anyone know anything about this unit or have any better suggestions? Speakers Iíve decided on MB Quarts and some form of 10Ē sub, maybe Alpine but Iím undecided yet.
Any advice or input is much appreciated, thanks for your help!
