Thumbs up Quality stezza in the Falcon

Good to see the Blaupunkt stereo in the new Falc's, hope it retains Fords great reputation for being able to pick up FM radio where ever you are :)
Now we'll have some quality tunes coming from the 'coons.

Thumbs down The end of customisation?

The new BA dash looks like it will have put an end to the ability to replace the factory stereo with something a bit more exotic. The integrated LCD display and control buttons etc.
What do you guys think?

Thumbs up

If the audio system in the BA is anything like the one in the AUII I do not see a need to change it. I have a AUII XR6VCT with the std 6-stack 6 speaker joby. I love it and do not see any need to change it. I expect the BA to be the same... Bring it on...

Good quality sound is great but the sound of a Barra V8 singing to red-line is better!!!!!!!

I don't think it will stop aftermarket stereo systems being installed. Rather, I think it will enhance it! People will get a lot smarter about aftermarket installs - after all, they have a new interface to adapt to. Stereo makers can stop producing flashy head units, and concentrate on quality sound, and leave the display to the in-car unit.

If/when I upgrade my premium system i'm keeping the original head unit, and i'm sure that will be a trend for BA upgrades.

A good stereo supplied with the car makes a difference. My wifes Alfa came with a BOSE system as standard and it is great. The AUXR8 200kw stereo dash stacker was great but I didn't think much of the single CD on the latest AU XR8 220kw.
I replaced the Becker in my car with a good Clarion. E Class stereo wasn't as good as what I thought, but Venom XR is correct to keep the original especially when you go to sell the car!

I have the Ford Premium Stereo in mine, and must say i'm very very happy with it. Perhaps the only thing i'll do is change speakers for that extra clarity and crispness but thats a maybe.

I've listened to stereo's in Berlina's Verada's and mine comes out way ahead in both usage, features and audio quality.

The new sound system also includes a auxillary input cable under the dash so you can hook up extra head units and the like. I found this on newfalcon.com.au in the press releases. As for putting in extra amps and speakers and all that, I have no idea.
