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
Anyone changed either of the above and noticed better quality sound
Any opinions gladly considered - don't want to go spending £'s adding to the
head unit if that's at fault.

Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com ).
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
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...
