    Instead of bon voyage how about "Hope you don't have to sit by a baby"? (That would make a l-o-n-g flight like that much longer.)

    Just got home - very smooth flight in all ways - I was in "Extra Comfort" class - nice dinner on the plane, etc. Just glad to be HOME!! It was a long day.

    Took a few pix out the window as we were heading out - nice shot of Honolulu to the left, Waikiki in the middle, and Diamond Head on the right

    I had a four-day weekend, so I thought I'd go ahead and tackle this job. My Focus ST1 has a no-frills basic system, no amp, no sub; just 4 crappy speakers (one in each door) and two tweeters (front doors).

    I bought 4 Infinity speakers, tweeters and crossovers. I didn't cut any corners so all connections are either stock or were soldered.

    What's pretty cool with these new cars is all the parts simply snap together, like a full-scale model car. The only tools I needed were a T25 Torx and my fingers/fingernails. You still have to use your man-muscle and pop the panels off, and those annoying white plastic thingies are still being used.

    I worked from door to door, installing the new speakers, crossovers and tweeters. The back doors didn't have tweeters, but the hole pattern is there on the inside of the panel for one, so I got out the hole saw. That was a bit unnerving cutting holes in a brand new car, but you'll see it worked out just dandy! ;)

    When I do something like this, the finished job should look like nothing was done; ie no wires hanging out, no hackjobs, no aftermarket speaker grilles. Retain the stock look. The tweeters for the front doors are up in that little forward corner of the window. That's where the stock tweeters were, and now hold the new Infintys. The new speakers are in place, and the crossovers are mounted inbetween the water shield and the inside door panel, so they won't get wet. This was done for each door.

    The only evidence that the upgrade was done, other than the obvious 1000% improvement in sound quality, are the new tweeters in the back doors. The STs with the upgraded Sony system have them in this same spot, so this is acceptable in my book. These Infinitys actually swivel, so I can point them forward towards me just a bit.

    Anyway, now I'm wondering if I should even go forward with the amp/sub that's next. The new speakers have increased the overall bass response so much that I'm going to have to think about that one!

    If I could do that then I wouldn't be making the small bucks at work as a database coder...
