Talk to me about audio guys, I know the standard head unit amp is pants. I don’t want to swap the stereo so need an amp and some front speakers Im guessing?
That was quick to recognise the standard stereo is utter rubbish. And mine’s got the upgraded Arkamys but still like listening to music through a tin can and string.

Had a long drive back from picking it up 😂 I know if you change the standard head unit you can loose functionality so I don't want to do that. Focal are good but maybe a bit too sharp for me maybe get something a bit warmer sounding.

Do I need adapter wiring or speaker brackets etc?

I don’t believe you need speaker brackets but maybe wrong. I had it done for me by Mark at road radio.
You will need a wiring harness. Again they’ll be able to confirm which one.

I got this setup recently and makes a massive difference.

Amp behind glovebox

Fronts inc tweeters

I kept the rears as a lot of faff to change.
More info of common setup using the amp.
This, plus the various wiring adapters for the head unit amp, speaker spacers, wire adapter for the speakers if you dont fancy chopping the standard plugs off.

@FatRS @VXR killer

I have been doing some digging on the audio setup this morning and found that Focal did a plug and play kit for various Renault/Dacia/Nissan. The one I would be interested in is the Focal IFR130-4. I have decided to get the Pioneer amp and the Ford ISO lead adapter so that should take care of the wiring. The Focal kit comes with adapters, brackets, wiring etc so it really should be plug and play. The only problem is the price! Cheapest is around £250, but I have seen the same kit under a different name in the UK, which is ISREN130 and seems to come with all the same stuff. For the money I'm undecided if its worth it or not, you are basically paying for the ease of installation and the name. I'm not sure how good the quality would be. You could probably get better speakers for less and then get some speaker brackets.

Ive heard people have problems with the ford loom, i used the megane 3 one, but be carefull as there earlier and later ones. This is the earlier 250 one...


i think i bought a more expensive one, with extra plugs/loom thats missing out of the above, but it doesnt matter, as i removed them anyway to save space, but if thats the case with the one in the link above, you will have to unclip the two smaller plugs (remote/mic and screen plug/wiring) out of the standard main plug and plug into the new looms main plug. Everything else with the plugs and amp are plug n play.
