Moving to Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual :)

I know a few have done this, Dant98 for one (at least on gen 4's), and am sure plenty others have as well. I have left my stock MACH alone, it does pretty well for me :)

I kept my stock H/U and added

4 DB Drive 6X8
250 Watt X-Fire amp

10" Clarion Marine Woofer mounted it in the middle hole in the back deck.
I use my car for my job and I couldn't give up the space.
300 Watt X-fire amp

I really like the sound of my system and have had several compliments on it.

I recently had one of my principles travelling with me and he was amazed at Ford's stock sound quality. I never told him any different.

btw Since it has the factory H/U and the amps are hidden a thief would just keep on walking.

What is your budget for each item?

Who is going to install it?

If you are going to do it, how much work are you willing to put into the system?

Do you want to build a sub box yourself to custom fit the sub?



If you're wanting to go the simpler/cheaper route, I'd suggest a pair of 6x8's for the front (and maybe the rear if you care about that), a 10" sub, and an amp to push it.

If you want to go a little more expensive and creative (not to mention much better sound), I'd suggest a set of 5.25" or 6.5" components in the front with a dedicated amp.

You're going to need a set of LOCs (line output converters) to adapt the factory system to a signal aftermarket amps can accept.

You should get a good set of components for an upgrade. If you don't want to lose to much trunk space to a sub, you could get a 8" or 10".
