speaker advice

Im looking to replace the door speaker on my base 13' gt. Will it make a huge difference? Due to lack of knowlege i would like to keep it simple and just buy the door speaker, plug them in and play.

My 14' Stang's speakers were 5x8 and replaced then with Rockford fosgate 1 series. You shoul consider putting in the 8" round speakers if you don't mind looking at speaker grilles. Those will make a huge difference in sound .

Make sure u buy speaker adapters if u don't want to cut the existing wires. Amazon carries them cheap. Also get a good set of tools to remove the door panels w/out scratching ur doors.

IMHO they maybe too big but u can go with a smaller setup and get the look of the Shaker 1000. The bigger speakers give u more bass. But I opted for Rockford fosgate 5x7 and two 10" subs in the trunk. It sounds amazing...I did replace all four speakers and installed a 3000 watt amp though. :-p

It should be here 3-4 from today, ill do a quick review when its installed. Any aftermarket speakers will be better than base model speakers, go on crutchfield and fill in your car theyll give you a good list of choice to choose from.

My 13 came with components is the door. I think it was like a 5 inch and a 1 inch tweeter. Something along those lines. To instal 6x9s I needed to buy the 2010 adapters from Tousley Ford. They were like $12 each

I was able to install one side today after getting home from work lol ran out of day light. This $50 upgrade is not bad, i wasnt blown away but it did sound much cleaner than stock. I switch audio between left and the right side and its definitly noticeable. Sound quality overall is clearer and more crisp now compared to the muddy stock speakers. After i installed the driver side i will test to see if i still get headachs from listening more than an hour like i do with stock.

Add a four channel amp and it will be night and day. Make sure you upgrade the ones in the back if you do or you'll blow them with >25watts.

Small footprint is good...depends on your budget (sky's the limit). I would get one that has a built in crossover that you can adjust.

On ease of install... No it is very difficult. Go to a stereo shop and save yourself a lot of work. I would recommend you getting satellite tweeters to get 'sound stage' effect. Good luck.
