I've had my beautiful white v6 mustang fully loaded for just over a week
And I have to say I'm madly in love! I have so many improvements I would love to make
Exhaust, window tinting etc etc however even though I've upgraded the stereo I would love to improve the sound, any thoughts anyone?

Stereo help

Thanks for responding!
I have the shaker stereo and haven't done any improvements to the sound
But would really like too. I was hoping for some suggestions, tips.

I installed 3-way Kenwood's in the rear of my 2012 base model and it really helped a lot.

Pretty sure the factory speakers run 4 ohms.I replaced the rear factory speakers
with 4 ohm and I have no problems.If you have a multimeter with resistance setting
just hook it up to a speaker and it will tell you the exact ohms of the speaker.

I JUST finished installing an aftermarket amp/speakers/sub setup with the factory nav unit, using an audiocontrol LCQ-1. The install was incredibly easy (minus running new speaker wire into the doors) and the sound improvement is insane! The whole setup with new speakers, zenclosures sub box, sub and lcq ran me around $650

So,I assume you the lcq you just hooked that into the factory harness and then used
that to wire into the amps and speakers.?

It was too easy...I went to Best Buy and bought a pair of speaker harness adapters...plugged them into the rears. Since the signals going to the speakers are full range, you can get everything from them. From there I spliced in 4 wires from each speaker, Front/Rear Left +\- and Front/Rear Right +\-. Ran that to the LCQ and then RCA's to the amp. I still have a little bit of fine tuning to do, to get the sound where I want it, but the actually initial tune took about 15 minutes, using an RTA analyzer with my smartphone.

I have a Scosche FD1441B, a Pioneer AVH 8400BH, two sets of Alpine Type S Component Systems, two 12" Alpine Type R Subwoofers in a custom built sealed box, and its all powered by a Hifonics Brutus 1700D and a Hifonics Zeus 80.4 amplifier. Sounds awesome but the bass can shake a lot of things loose on your car. I would recommend less bass and focus more on highs!
