Premium door panel swap

Hey guys I was going to buy premium panels for my GT but wanted to know what would be required to get the extra subwoofers at the bottom to work. Is it just a harness or do I need to splice or get a premium stock radio.

You'll need a better amp. Not sure if the base amp will supply enough power to those speakers.

Do you think I would need the shaker radio, amplifier and harnesses as well. I'd like a stock ford setup and I don't want to lose my sync.

You will need at least an Apple IIE processor and Centurylink cable installed with at least 2 pay-per-view packages.

If you want it to sound the best, you're going to need some time and some power tools.



I took my doors off (the entire door, off the hinges), pulled the wiring harness, and drilled a hole into the corner of the harness. Then I fed a speaker wire from the interior through the wiring harnesses, down the flexible tube and into the door cavity. There's no wiring harness to be used if you are swapping up from the base door panels to premium. Link those wires up to the sub in the door and the output of your amp (you'll need to buy this, doesn't need to be ford or kicker or anything special). I don't know about the output of the stock deck but I'm assuming it has subwoofer outputs that aren't being used. Tap into those if you can find them (assuming they exist). If not, you can tap off the front or rear speakers (prefer rear) and just make sure you use a low pass filter on the line or use a crossover to cut the signal down below 100-120hz, or lower depending on the music you listen to.
