Great new for all the audiophile!

Hi guy's this thread is just to inform everybody here that I changed all my audio setup in my Ford Focus 2012 10 speakers Sony system!

First of all, now my sound system is &?%$/"& AWESOME! I swear to god that the system was so awful. As a audiophile I wanted QUALITY and LOUD system. I had a problem and it was the HEAD UNIT, profesionnal told me that the head unit was the entire problem of the system because of the low and poor signal (0.5V- 1V). The solution was 1. Change the Head unit 2. Get a Audison Bit Ten D audio processor. What is the Bit Ten D? It's a processor that take your signal from the unit and boost it to get the maximum quality. I decided to get the bit ten d and guest what IT'S AWESOME. It's expensive
550$, but I swear you that it's worth it. The sound is amazing and loud.

So here's my new setup :

I buyed one audison bit ten D : 549,99$

2 speakers set of JL-audio C2-650 330$ on ebay

and I had my own clarion amp. My four new speakers are amplified by my Clarion amp and the sony sub is still working by the original amp.

Eventually i'll try to make a video to show you the quality in my car now, you guy will be surprised :P

Ive got a 2012 Focus . I have replaced all speakers with cerwin vega component speakers front and rear plus a single cerwin vega 12" high end subwoofer as well. Tweeters flat mount front and rear as well. All linked with two amplifiers. 4 ch for component spkrs and a mono block amp for thr sub. Sound? Ten times better than stock. I didnt need to add an Audison Bit Ten D. Adding an amp increases the highs and lows using the freq settings of each amp. Anyways....just my thoughts.

Well glad to see your happy with your new speakers. But I think you don't know what good sound is or maybe for you good sound = a lot of shitty bass.

Ask to a professional and tell him that you have the stock unit... He'll tell you the same thing that i'm telling you. I agree changing the speakers with an amp is better and yes your sound is LOUDER because of the amp, but you don't have better quality. Speakers do what your unit want. If your unit have .5v of signal, your speaker will play a .5v of signal. Your amp just take your .5 V of signal and boost it to get a louder sound, that it. The bit ten D BOOST the .5v to get a 6V signal and increase everything. So everything is cleaner, crisper, louder. NOW the amp is boosting the cleaner, louder and crisper sound again and the result of the sound is outstanding.

Well a single component upgrade will not give you audiophile sound, period. I have more than $3000 in audio and I still do not consider it audiophile quality. My home system on the other hand is audiophile quality. There is a lot more to it than just adding one or two pieces to a system to get audiophile sound. You have to plan a system out and calculate all kinds of factors for sound, reflection, imaging, dampening, resonance, etc.

There are much cheaper things than the bit ten d... The audio control LC6i is amazing and dose the same thing boosting your stock signal up to 9v! I have it setup right now with mine and my system sounds amazing. It is only $113(=

I said 6V but maybe it's more i'm not sure that's what the installer told me as an example to explain me the bit ten. Anyways for all the haters, I can't do anything but say that the bit ten is an outstading product. For all that have money, go buy it without a doubt.

Shogun, is there a pre out leading to the Sony amp that you can easily use to drive a real amplifier with?
