    I used to have a 2000 focus zts and there was an oppening near the left side of the drivers side feet area. I would recommend running your ground back to the battery and that might not have enough room for 0 gauge.

    Does any1 make adapters to put 5" speakers in a 6x8 spot? I've had a set for 6x9s. Also it has a 110 amp alt. My car has nothing electric but the lights. How many amps should I have left to use even if all my lights are on?

    I would run it back to battery bc fords chassy was a unibody and it was not a good ground. It was much better when i actually ran it back to the battery. For the adapters i would recommend just making your own. That is what i did. I actually did not look that far into the electrical system on the car so i don't know how many amps you would have left after what your car uses. It all depends on how many lights you have on, and if your have your headlights and tail lights on also.
