    The setup i want is 1all new speakers,sub, amps (1 for bass and 1 for to run the speakers) and a sound processor. I hate the way the stereo equalizes the sound that's why I prefer to Bluetooth music because I can let my phone do the equalization and it's much better.

    Upgrading music on my FiST is the last thing on my mind. I bought this car for its race car aspects. All I wanna hear coming out this car is a mean ass growl when I WOT. A fine tuned exhaust will be my music upgrade :)

    Guys, thanks so much for all the input - I'll be checking out the Sony system soon, I'm pretty sure it'll be just what I want!

    Thanks again!

    I really liked the sound from my 2011 Fiesta SE with the Sync radio, non MFT. It was the first vehicle I've owned that I didn't feel that the audio system was severely lacking. I had previously owned older Audi/VWs that for some reason would never have a speaker larger than 4". I always had added a subwoofer to my cars and the SE didn't seem to need one.

    On the SE Sync radio I had it set to driver listening position preset and Rock on the preset EQ. For me that provided the best sound.

    A few things about the ST Sony stereo after a few days of using it.

    Phone / media player integration seems better than my SE. It just seems to work better with my iPhone.

    There are no EQ presets. You need to adjust high/mid/low manually. I find I need to turn the mids/highs down 3 clicks and the bass up 3 to get it to sound close to my old SE.

    I can't get it to sound right with the driver seat listen position preset, I just fade right a few clicks.

    The only real complaint I have about the system is the Sirius audio quality. I didn't realize that the compression Sirius uses is so high. The highs just seem wrong and I can't use it. I won't be renewing the subscription. This isn't a fault of the radio though, just what it is being fed.

    Overall it is a great radio. I think the adjustments will let you dial in the sound the way you like. Short of adding a sub if you want mega bass and I can't see justifying the weight, space, and electrical drain penalty.
