Hi,

The problem with the wiring diagram that I have is it appears to have been based on USA Escape which in some instances has different colour wiring. However it will list which pin on the ACM goes to which speaker. I will have a look as I don't have access to it at present.

What is it you are trying to do.

Nothing's ever simple in the Kuga world is it so i'll take any help that I can get. Thanks for taking the time.
Im upgrading to some component speakers, I'm just doing the front at the moment thats if I dont lose my s**t with installing the tweeter's and throw everything in the skip.

What’s the exact plan? I ask, as components usually incorporate passive crossovers.

The stock tweeters are probably filtered by capacitor.

Banging some aftermarket tweeters in place of the stock tweeters may result in tears.

You mention Sony, and 9 speakers. This seems to be a contradiction in that they do a 9 speaker NON-SONY, and a 10 speaker Sony (defined by the presence of a Sub in the boot it seems). The diagram I supplied would align to the 9 speaker non-Sony (though it’s likely the colours will match). Are you certain you know what your setup is? (Also, I could be talking waffle, I’m not familiar with anything but the MK3 😂 - my point is, triple check everything and go steady)

The 9 speaker Sony config is correct, the Tit X had 9 speakers, minus the sub. The Tit X Sport has 10 with the sub.

Was just going off US chatter, so that’s good to know 👍👌

Ultimately, and I’m sure you’re all over it, just make sure you don’t go blowing the tweeters 👍👌👌

The wire colours are the same like in Focus MK3. According to this instruction I added subwoofer.
(my system was 9 speakers too)
