    Ask the dealership if your car has or requires the 3824 update

    Details are:

    3824 – Focus ST/RS poor sound distribution/quiet sound from rear speakers

    If a customer complains that the soud is coming mainly from front speakers and the rear speakers are too quiet, be informed that an improved Audio Control Module software is now released. Note that this update affects Sony Premium Audio System on ST/RS only. Please use SBD for guided diagnostic. Please choose the following symptom. Customer comfort and entertainment -> Audio -> Soundoutput -> speakers -> Poor quality/distorted sound from one or more speakers (not all).

    Yes crunchie, but some people haven’t or just didn’t go and get the upgrade. Second hand cars are now coming onto the market and it’s possible some past owners didn’t bother do anything about it

    Still sounds crap afterwards. So upgrades will still be required by the discerning listener.

    disagree! the sound after the update is night and day better, beforehand there was no sound out of the rear door speakers and the output from  the subwoofer was minimal, after the update you can actually hear the rears working and the sub !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Have agree after the sound upgrade it’s so much better. Even the technician who did the upgrade said he couldn’t believe the difference.

    I didn’t say the service fix wasn’t much better, I said the system is poor sound quality even when updated.  Still one of the worse car audio’s have had or heard.  It’s very hard and brittle sounding, very “digital” sounding in a negative sense. It has little musical virtues or timing, very synthetic sounding.

    The speakers will be made down to a price as many volume manufactures are,  probably about a euro each, shame that even as the optional better system it still sounds poor.
