Stock Headunit Distortion Volume

I have a 2013 mustang v6 premium with shaker system and I was thinking of adding a sub to add a little more bass. So I just wanted to know whats the distortion volume on our mustangs' headuint? And is it different between the base system and shaker?

If u have the shaker with navigation. It will distort at or before 3/4 volume. Usually around half but some of the head units will distort later. Keep in mind most distortion you won't hear until it's already at damaging levels.

Best thing to do is replace all the speakers but the 8" in the doors. Run an amp to all 6 speakers. Keep the 8"s on there own channel and fine tune everything. These 8"s will handle a good amount of power and actually sound great if there tuned properly. A lot of people say there junk and they r compared to a 2-400$ set up but most people can't tell.

I'm an audiophile and they're 8" rock out when tuned properly

Any ways. Swap out the 5/7 speakers and amp them all. Add a subwoofer and then set the system to your tasting. Wud tune it at 1/2 volume and never go past it. Cleaner power will be louder any day than distorted volume.

I also relocated my rear speakers so make them sound better. The rear deck is terrible for sound quality.

Thanks man, just one last question does the input method affect the sound? I always use Bluetooth, but is aux, usb, or CD clearer ?

That all depends on the car and specific input used. Good quality inputs will all be just as capable as other types. In my mustang there all equal quality just slightly different volumes. I use the bt about 96% of the time for ease of operation.

If u have any other questions or any instal questions let me know. I did car audio professionally for a while so I know my way around it.

Well I was looking for a good sub that does around 1000 WRMS and saw that it looks like you have NXV VCW right? I saw Soundqubed HDS312 which offer a similar power. Form your experince what do you think preform better

I built a custom ported box for this nvx vcw. I contacted their r and d department out In California and spoke with pat. He was more than happy to crunch number in his computer to design a box to suit my need. The box was designed to slam on rap and still sound good with rock and country as I liste. To pretty much everything. Upon building the box and testing it I found out how well he knows his product. This sub absolutely slams and has never fallen on its face once on any note. The nvx in a custom box like this is incredible.
In a normal store bought box it will easily out perform any alpine type r and the soundqubed you mention as I've recently played with both. Hands down I wud go with the nvx bro. Definitely worth the money.

I do have to say though. Nvx amps will only put out there rated power on there lowest impedance. So don't buy a 1ohm capable amp and run it at 2ohms and expect to get rated power.

This is true for about 90% of amps out there. One exception to the rule would be some alpine amps and most Jl audio amps.

Yeah I only intended to run it at 1 ohm. And for the box its not a problem my buddy builds custom boxes for free I would only buy the materials. Would a 1.5 cu ft ported box does it justice ? They would be 12" BTW, does 34hz tune seem good?

What sort of music do you listen to? 1.5cu will be more fire rock beats. Tighter punchy beats but will still do decent on rap. 1.89cu will do better for rap and still sound good with rock. A bass heavy box of pure rap will be around 2.15cu or bigger. The bigger you go the deeper it will hit if tuned properly.

These subs are pretty versatile. I've built a few different bids for them. I'm currently tuned to 32 but I've done 28,32,36,40. They all did good. Just depends on the music you listen to
