Wish I had some time to take apart the dash & see what the headunit or DSP/amplifier outputs look like. I wouldn't be shocked at all if the subwoofer pre-outs are sitting right there.... disconnected.

You're probably right. Is there a grayed out subwoofer control in the menu system?

Go the the Ford Focus Fanatics forum. There are people that have torn apart the dash and upgraded the speakers. I remember a very long post where a guy went through every single step for each speaker. I'm pretty sure I referenced that post somewhere on this forum. The ICE and FFE are pretty much that same thing head unit-wise. You're only problem is no space in the back for that Sony sub - you kind of have to do something creative like that person you mentioned.

Your other option might be the FFE shop manual that was available here.

Would a 10" Bazooka w/ a 250 watts amp fit? That, and some dynamat in the doors would probably kick the system up a few notches without breaking the bank. Are the stock door speakers worth keeping? Where can we find full specs on the head unit and the speakers? How much power do we have coming off the head unit? Is it enough to power a set of Kicker component speakers?

Someone has to have upgraded the FFE stereo.
I found a youtube video that looks helpful. I'm going to try following it. First I need to order an amp and sub.

FFE install should be a bit easier because there is already a 12V accessory plug in the trunk.

Also, see http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/car- ... ade-6.html

I guess the benefit of using the parrot harness (http://www.installer.com/item/display_i ... QCFOR-11MK) is that you don't need to cut factory wires. Just plug in the parrot t-harness.
