UK Focus - 6000 CD stereo

Just picked up new - to me - Focus at the beginning of the week and am unhappy with the quality of sound from the 6000 CD stereo system.
I was considering adding a CD autochanger and a mobile phone hands free kit,
but wonder if the problem lies with...
the head unit ... or... the speakers
Anyone changed either of the above and noticed better quality sound afterwards?
Any opinions gladly considered - don't want to go spending 's adding to the head unit if that's at fault.
TIA,
John

I doubt it would make a great deal of difference as the amp is in the existing head unit and the speakers would also be the same.

The speakers are by far the worst of the ensemble, get some fairly senstive co-axials in their- i'd reccommend some Infinity reference 5x7's (which is what I started with) for about 70. They fit straight in, although you'll have to chop or mod the ford speaker plugs as they're not compatible with anything aftermarket.
The internal amp within the Headunit is quite mediocre but try it with some decent speakers first.
Personnally I have a Blau London H/U, 4 channel amp, infinity 6.5" components in the front, stock rear speakers, and a 10 inch sub. The quality now is on another planet to what the Ford system was. Its amazing that Ford have the nerve to market such a crap setup.
The only decent sounding Ford system I have heard just lately is the optional Sony equiped Mondeo Ghia, though turn it up to moderate to high volumes and it begins to sound ragged...
