Simple, low cost audio upgrade

I'm a new Mustang owner, mine is a GT without the shaker. The factory speakers are terrible, much worse than my Charger was.

I'm a 40-yr old Dad who typically drives a minivan, so I only need a modest improvement...not trying to go overboard. (Need my trunk space for the stroller!). From what I read, a small bass tube will give me a boost at low cost and is a simple hookup/install.

Anyone do this, did it make a difference, was it easy to install? Thx!

Yeah I understand because te trunk space is limited and if you want the best bet would probly be to upgrade your side door speakers there not expensive around 50$ a piece and then you just have to find a cheap place to install.

We have and HUGE difference. Kicker Bass Station fits way forward in your trunk and still leaves plenty of trunk space. My son plays D1 golf so always has his sticks in the trunk. The Bass stations are super easy to wire into the stock system. Use your rear deck speaker leads to tap your input audio wires, your power wire goes to your battery and the switch wire taps into the blue wire that goes to your antenna in your trunk. No need to have anyone do it for you, all the wiring came with the Bass Station. Forget replacing your rear deck speakers unless you are ready for some serious work. You have to take so much apart to get to them it is unreal. It didn't even make that big a difference. On the other hand, your door speakers are easy to change and it does make a BIG difference in clarity and sound to replace those. We found the bass station on craigs list for really cheap and saved a bunch, but the smallest one they have will give you all the sound you want.
