Has anyone thought of just splicing an equalizer/amplifier into the speaker wires, hide the E/A in the glovebox, and call it a day?

I just wanted to say I bought a Koolertron stereo for 450 off amazon, it was compatible in every way and worked smoothly except for one thing. I could not get it to play CD's because its a VCD whitch in the booklet stands for Virtual CD im not sure but it annoyed me so i took it out even though i enjoyed the blue tooth and touch screen

I added a LOC to the stock speaker wires and added a sub and amp. Then called it a day. Only after trying two separate unsuccessful Chinese units. Lol

Hey guys, I'm trying to replace my focus' speakers with new coax speakers. I purchased 1 set of focal pc165 for the front doors and 1 set of JL c2 650's for the rear door. I just finished removing the door panel and moding the bracket but it seems like no matter how much i cut back the bracket the speakers don't seem to fit! Are these speakers 6-3/4"? is that why? Can I buy an aftermarket bracket that will work??

As well I was trying to use 16GA wire to connect the speaker to the bracket connection points and seem to be having a tough time soldering the wire on, should I be using a lower gauge wire??

Anyone tried these so far:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-Android-4-...:X:RTQ:US:1123

I have discussed with seller and this unit is made by Klyde, button backlights are "Ford Focus Blue" and set includes cable harness with connectors so no wire cutting is necessary.

I'm about to order one but I would first like to hear if someone else has bought these here. My main concern is 8" display and if it's bright enough to be used in direct sunlight.

New member here! I'm also interested in this as well. I have an '14 SE and it looks like I can get navigation and SiriusXM? on thing. Might bite the bullet on this too!
