Thanks for following. It's been slow because everything's gotta be ordered (well, slow for me because I am very impatient.) But within a week's time It should be good to go.

I installed Type-R Alpine speakers yesterday and they sound a lot better than stock, but with the stock head unit, they just aren't doing justice.





I stopped by the audio shop and they said they don't really make dash kit's yet for this car. The Part number is generated but there is no product yet. Dash kit's are going to be $199+ for these things.

Here are some pics of the speakers. Nothing great:

Type R's Come with these clamps. Simply rip off the ones that stick out the furest and use one original hole and drill a second on the other side. It gives little to no gaps in the door hole:





Stock wiring is too short. had to extend and wire through the door:




In this image I have the cleaned up wire into the clamp hole, but I relocated to behind that black tape, there is a hole, I went through there so it doesn't affect the clamp.






Here is the setup I had in my civic trunk that I may do again in my Focus. Don't worry the wires were cleaned up more after the photo was taken:

Looking good so far, your mods are exactly what I have planned for mine. I'm gonna be following this one.

Cool, thanks Benji. Just found out today the center caps for the wheels need to match the paint after they get them in, so I wont have my wheels for ANOTHER WEEK!!!! buying new sucks haha. Coilovers are sitting in the living room mocking me every time i pass by.

As for pictures / updates I probably wont post anything till next friday, sat, or sunday.

Cheers,
Adam

I might actually have to do the Alpine Type-Rs as well. The stock speakers sound like they're already starting to go out.

I'd wait till you get a new head unit before making the plunge. I got them for $299 out the door for two boxes (4 total) which is crazy cheap but without a head unit they aren't that noticeable unless you listen to some high treble songs. I'd wait till you get a HU and a Dash kit. Speaking of which, My audio guy says they dont stock our dash kits on the west coast so everything's gotta be sent from the east coast and ordered. They start at $199. Ugh

Well, my main thing isn't necessarily the power. As I won't be changing out the head unit, it's just that the bass that is there isn't clean, and the speakers sound like they are starting to rattle.

true. I'd deff recommend some kind of matting once you change the speakers though. I just put these R's in and during bass portions of songs all 4 doors rattle. Just an FYI
