I have had my Mustang for one week, and in that week, well actually within one day, I realized the Shaker is not what I first thought it might be. I'm satisfied with the Head Unit overall for what it is.
But as with most people I find the speakers sucking. I've read here, and all over the internet to the point I may have reached the end of the internet just looking for potential upgrades.
I know many people have just replaced the speakers with drop in 5x7/6x8 replacements and were happy. My question is, would 5.25 components be a better solution.
I am a JBL fan and have been for years, I have them in my Dodge Ram, and in my vette. I have picked out 4 options for myself and I can't decide what I should do.
6x8 Coax in the front and back and call it a day.
My question: will the 6x8 upgrade make me happy for the long haul.
5.25 components for now, then move to the rear with 6x8's, and replace the front subs with powered mid range speakers and lose the stock subs altogether.
My question: Will the 5.25 component upgrade make that much of a difference in the short term before I move on to other upgrades.
6.5 Components and then move to the rear, and replace the front subs with powered mid ranges.
I guess my biggest dilemma, or question is, will 5.25 be adequate up front? I can do a fabrication I found around here and make a 6.5 component work without drilling in my car.
I am not going to put a huge sub in my car as I don't listen to hip hop etc, I listen to country and classic rock. I believe the powered mid range would be adequate, but that's in the future.
I'm doing this a little at time so my checkbook doesn't start fighting with me. But within the next 2 years I want it completed. So I want an instant upgrade for now with the potential to just keep adding without redoing.
For those who know JBL I will be using their Power Series and I found a killer deal on some 5.25 components they are discontinuing, but I'm just not sure they would be that huge of an upgrade over what I have, because I have never had actual component speakers before. I was always happy with high quality coax's.
I hope I'm making sense here.
Thanks in advance
