My ZTS came with the premium audio package, although I replaced the headunit with an aftermarket Kenwood one. It sounds awesome for factory speakers.

I'd just buy whatever focus you want and upgrade... its very easy to do and if you have no clue on what you're doing theres good write-ups on it in the "how to" section on this site.

yeah...ive never heard of someone choosing a car around a sound system

its usually you buy the car you like and then spend 400 - 500 hundred bucks to get a very decent sounding system... you could even go cheaper than that if you dont buy an external amp

now if you want to have a rock concert or a "king kong in the trunk" type of deal going on that will take more money and time....but its definetly worth it if thats what youre into


get a good head unit and some good speakers.... youd be surprised how much difference even a "non-top-notch" after market headunit makes over the stock one...even with the factory speakers

thats my $(00.04-00.02)...do the math

Just get a good head unit, replacement speakers for your stock ones, and a single sub with an amp. It'll sound good without getting too complicated
