Audio upgrade questions - head unit, installers, sub and amp

Post by bytegp » Fri Jan 30, 2015 12:24 am

hi all,

So I took the plunge and ordered the Android Head Unit. Looks good in pictures. The unit should arrive on Monday.

What I would like to know is:

1. Who would you recommend to do the installation?
2. I want to add in a 12" sub and a decent amp, what do you recommend?
3. Warranty - do I lose electrical warranty?
4. Warranty - could I keep my warranty if I ask ford to fit the unit?

PnP in Rietfontein RD Boksburg did a decent installation in my car.
Unsure on Warranty Q?

Ford usually shy away from fitting sound stuff , unless you know the workshop manager , warranty on electrical will be gone , but again nice dealers will still help , PnP is awesome , and look on my pioneer thread if you like there products, but any quality sub and amp will do, its your budget that needs to be matched.

So it's 2 for 2.

Jules or PNP?

What should I expect to spend on a decent 12" sub and amp.

Sub in hopefully a slim box as I still want to get to my spare tire without too much work.

Thanks all

You should try Acoustic Audio, they in Boksburg as well, I can say, that Abrie Rautenbach, the owner is one of the best in the business

Any feedback on the unit and the install? Looking to upgrade my ST head to an android unit as well. Do the steering controls still work?
