    My 2006 FoFo (Focus) install...budget friendly!

    I had another build log, but was just that of my sound deadening job, so starting a new one of everything. I honestly was trying to get out of the audio game and I just couldn't take stock for more than a month.......or even componets just amped, lol! Also this is very budget as I am still saving for a house next year. Also I change out equipment a lot, so I just put it in there, no fancy work, just simple.

    I spent around 470 bucks on this stuff, minus the box,highs amp and wiring(as I still had that from not selling) so as not to spend much more than the stuff I just sold, lol!

    This system suprised the **** out of me for as cheap as the equipment is. Far better than my 2 type R's or my 1CVX and 1 Fi Q. Maybe it is the install, although I didn't do much more, matter of fact, running smaller wire with no extra batteries, lol! I do get dimming of the lights now, so battery is in the future.

    Equipment list!
    Kenwood Excelon x-492 cd player with iPod direct connet (I rarely use my iPod 4g nano though)
    Pioneer Premier TSD-720c 6 3/4" Componet set
    Pioneer Premier TS-A831 6X8" co-axils in the rear
    2 12" Pioneer Premier TS-W1207-D4'S
    2 12" Sealed box at 1.75cft per chamber
    1 Autotek SM1-1000RMS Streeet Machine sub amp-running 1-ohm stable
    1 Clarion 400watt amp on the highs
    1 3-way Lanzar crossover, which believe it or not works better than the internal amp crossovers as I tried that first, lol!
    All 4g wiring as I got rid of my hyperflex 0/1g wire. So used what I had lying around.
    ZOMG, no batteries as of now, like I said sold most everything here or locally. The buyer of my 2 kinetiks said he would see me them back to me...Humm!

    Pics!

    Re: My 2006 FoFo (Focus) install...budget friendly!

    Also I imagine this is over 140 plus. Sounds as loud as my two 12" type R's off 1200rms that I did on a TL a couple of years ago. This is the same box I had for my T's as well, but I had more power, big 3 and two dry cells, not to mention 0/1g wire in that car and this still sounds as loud and a lot cleaner to boot, plus was very budget. Type R's did 144.2 in a cavalier by the way.

    I am very happy thus far with this setup, just need a dry cell in back and that will about do it.

    Will get a video of it soon, but live in an apartment complex and don't like people knowing what I have.

    Oh yeah reason I put everything in the trunk well (Which I couldn't believe I fit all it in there, lol!) is because I have a little one and need to fit the stroller and **** in there, so I flip the box up to where it is right at the rear deck so I can put the stuff needed there. Is pretty slick as when I move there is a little latch there to where it catches the box. You actually have to finango the box to get to come back down. Worked out really well.

    Thanks for looking!

    I was very skeptical when I bought them. Told myself, I just wanted a little beat in the back, well to my surprise my inital reaction was these sound like ****!

    But after about 10 mins. of tunning, I was like holy **** balls, these are loud! I have quite a bit of sound deadening in my car with fatmat and Second skin and I am getting rattles I didn't get with any of my sub setups in this car from before.

    Believe me, I am surprised. Now how long they last is the next question.

    Looking good specially for that price, can't go wrong with that much gear for under $500.

    Nice to see you went with the pioneer comps, how are you liking them??

    Looks like you got the deadener covered for sure, must feel like a completely different car. Looks like a solid setup for sure, just hope you don't get a flat tire lol.

    Yeah I spent around 500 on the new gear. All and all with deadener and what not I have over 1000 into it from over the years, not bad considering I have been through 3 different setups in this car and so far this is my favorite.

    The 720c's are fantastic. I initally had them off my amp crossover and I liked them, but thought they had more in them. I hooked up the cheap 3-way and OMG! They are so crisp and clean and ranks as my favorite componet set thus far. I will keep these for some time.........unless something happens to them.

    Also thanks bud! Need to check back on your thread.

    Yeah they type R's shine in ported, but didn't sound horrible sealed, I even did decent numbers with them, but I think sealed these sound better and to the ear sound as loud, but that is just guessing. Need to hit up a local tl somewhere.

    Oh, my bad, I thought you were talking ****.

    Also I hope you didn't pay that much for your set, they can be had for 100 bucks on newegg.com.

    I spent 120 on them.

    They do sound fantastic though,

    You must have the old set then. These are the new line of 720c's or least I thought they were. Even stated it on a review on the C&A electronics mag.

    You are deffintley underpowering them for sure. Try saving up to get a decent componet amp and then be ready to have some fun.
