Does $165 include the subs, box, amp, loc (hi/lo), and wiring kit? If so, then what kind of subs and amp are you getting put in? Can't be anything spectacular for that cheap.

I wired my subs using an LOC from the front speakers and everything sounds pretty great. I don't think the LCQ is really necessary unless you want top of the line audio in your car.

Make sure you tell the guy installing your subs to wire the LOC to the front speakers and not the back, because Ford limits the frequency outputs to the back speakers for some reason and the subs will not play all the bass.

Btw, I have the 6 speaker setup, but the installation should be roughly the same since your using an LOC

WaytoFocused The LCQ also has what they call their "Acubass" feature that completely eliminates the factory bass roll off you hear when the volume is increased. Nothing but a clean unfiltered audio source for your aftermarket amps. I also ordered their remote bass controll that gives you volume controll over your sub channel from wherever you'd like to mount it. Oh and IMHO anyone who says the factory sony sound is some of the best they have ever heard is seriously missing out on what a well designed car stereo should should like.

WaytoFocused Adding a sound processor is the way to go with the MFT/Sony 10 speaker. A JL clean sweep, MS-8 or my personal favorite an Audio Cotrol LCQ-1. Install with the LCQ would go like this:

Splice into the Sonys front, rear and sub output


Wire the outputs to the LCQ witch then filters out all factory EQ and let's you tune each channel to your preference


From the LCQ to your aftermarket amps

Yep, and if it does, I haven't found it yet. Might have gone away in the latest update just like being able to assign the shortcut buttons to something else.
