I've never gone that big, but I had a competition system with 3 10's in a '92 Mustang that was exceptional. Phoenix Gold high current amps (2x22 watt rated, made more like 1000 at 1ohm), 20 band PG EQ, line drivers, all kinds of maniacal stuff for an 18 year old to have. I loved it. Various other setups, single 12w0, dual 10w1s, single shallow 10 in a single cab truck. I don't think I've ever driven a car for more than a short period without some sort of sound upgrade... until 4 years in this Focus. Guess the MFT wasn't a bad purchase after all.


As far as the spare and plans, I am going to keep the carpet at the rubber liner on top of the setup full time. Just throw the spare in there with the stock tooltray in the middle.Very little trunk space lost, and this way nothing will get beat up like exposed amps and subs. At shows, I can pull the carpet, mat, and spare out, and show off my handiwork.

Knock on wood, I'm at 81k miles, and never had a flat. Maybe it won't happen in the future.

Needs more layers to stiffen it up, but it didn't fall apart and came out without major fuss.

Next installation of work: More layers! Then MDF top plate, then a riser box on the MDF plate for the subs to reach mounting depth, then make pretty and reinstall the whole thing.

Well I wish I had a phone smart enough to post a sound clip. It took my wife a little getting used too because I unplugged the fake engine noise, but she loves it now. The car literally sounds nothing like it used to when it was stock.

I also have a brand new Magnaflow to put on my SVT too.

A Focused Family I go with reputation and quality of work not price. This guy does high end cars mostly and has for over 20 years.

Finally got conformation today that my replacement front windshield for the RS will be 100% free w/no deductable. I'll hear back from the tech next to set up appointment.

Then next up is to repair all of the paint damage suffered from driving to Iowa last year lol.

I paid a similar price but sometimes the materials are 2x what we paid if you want tint that's super dark on the outside but practically not there on the inside.

BluePanda Also got to help the neighbors across the street today. Car in their garage on the right was dead. Husband took over the focus to jump it. The guy finally realized the thing that looks like a shit box (PITA) -- well has something hidden under the hood. He was impressed. And then saddened by his un-kept engine bay. lol.

Sleeper win.
