Default 2012 Focus Factory Sony Head Unit Amp Install Help Needed

I am looking at purchasing a fuel efficient ride and was looking at an 'F' word, but of course I have to modify the sound system so I am looking around for info.

This 'F' word I am looking at has the factory Sony head unit which is Nav capable (with some software programming I gather), I believe it is Sync2 with Ford Mytouch. I cant find any good info on amplifier upgrade capabilities besides with the lower level factory units so I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with these vehicles/systems....

What is needed? Is there a module, will I need to go full out and wire my own harness, any info is appreciated....

Thx

Look up rockford DSR-1 and see if its compatible with your focus. You can just use a T harness, flash the dsp to the vehicle model and viola 8 channels of rca output, time alignment, active networks 31 band eq, the works. All bluetooth tuned on your phone as well.

A little more than what I would need feature wise, any other options?

Looking like I am gonna pass on the little car, doing research has brought me to a dead end...There is some issue with how the factory alt. Is made so there are no h.o. units available for it and since it has a factory sony unit It is likely going to cost too much to upgrade to just have ok sounds....cant live with it that way... Ford n Sony = poop

Completely understand! I was set on the Explorer, then ended up getting a Grand Cherokee. Cause of the Sync & alternator location.
