Gave it an 8 due to having to hook up an iPod via the USB and Aux ports with Pioneers special cord instead of just being able to use the normal USB that comes with the iPod.
Mine works just fine with the normal Ipod cord with my Iphone and Ipod.

If your mean Video then yes you need the special cord. (BTW ebay has them for $6)

Just installed a Kenwood ddx419 in my 2012 Focus s. I really hate this car but I have to spend 8-10 hours a day in it might as well enjoy a good system.
I also have a pair of Kenwood 3013 subs, 1000w Kenwood 8105d amp in the trunk. About to order 4 door speakers and a 4 channel amp, all Kenwood.

The unit sounds awesome sauce. I can control the eq for the front, rear, and sub. The frequencies for the front, rear, and sub. Time correction. You can match the lights to your dash. So many controls for everything. My only real complaints are start up time. It takes forever. Touch screen isn't the best, takes a little too much pressure. And the subwoofer level adjustment is a 5 step process instead of 1-2 steps like it should be.

Best new SQ headunit other then the Pionner P99RS for $1,100.00

9 of 10 because the P99RS looks better and I hate how far you have to turn them up (62max volume) and wish it had HD radio.
Ive had many headunits including a double din before getting this one. I love it.

16 band L/R EQ
3 sets of 5 volt outputs
active capable
auto EQ and TA
3-way crossover
Burr-Brown 24-bit D/A Converters
2 rear USB
2 aux inputs
SD card slot

extremeatheist, where did you obtain the new faceplate for the radio install? Crutchfield?

I have the same one. I hate the auto eq but I think it tried to compensate for me not having subs right now

Sony XAV-701HD

Sony XAV-701HD. I can pick one up for about $450 brand new from a stereo shop here in SLC. I noticed crutchfield is saying that the sony deck won't fit but I saw one of you guys had it installed. Did you have to modify your console at all to get it to fit?

I only had to shave off a mm from the top part of the hole where the unit goes into. Easy as cake, and only took a few minutes. Only flaw is that I wasn't able to use the screws on the console again. No big deal though.

Cool. I was wanting the 7 series to replace the 6 I have. I love the cleaner look with the controls at the bottom and 7" screen. But I put it in my truck now since my focus is up for the winter. Also have the backup camera [:D] which is nice for the truck. Do you need the steering wheel controls adapter?

Yep, I got a steering wheel control from an SVT, turns out the it mounts exactly the same on my column as it would on an SVt. Then I got this -->

And it worked perfect!

I have a 2012 Focus Hatchback SE

Sweet! I am looking to buy the same Metra dash kit from Amazon. I had some questions maybe you could answer.

Do the steering wheel controls still work with the dash kit, and what wiring harness did you have to use.

My focus doesn't have the sync/Ford Touch or Premium audio package.

Thanks! Think if I buy it too might replace the orange back lights with blue led's

Headunit is a JVC KD-S48. I ran the rear usb plug to the where the SYNC one was but this hu doesn't have a rear aux to run to the factory location as well.



Wired in with:
PAC C2R-FRD1
Axxess Metra ASWC-1

Metra dash panel


Future plans are to replace the factory screen with some gauges or something

Put in the Sony XAV-602BT. Alright features. I chose it mainly for the touchscreen & 5v Preouts...well...I REALLY chose it because I wanted the OEM h/u OUT already =P



I ran the USB [Rear] down through the center console, and out the bottom of the center arm rest.
