Have a custom stereo system in your ride? Post it up! I'm shopping around and would love to hear what components people are happy with. Here's what I've decided to go with so far.. Pioneer head unit with the rest JL Audio:
Of hand I don't even remember what I have exactly. I know my door subs are stock powered by a Focal Solid amp. Focal components in the doors. Focal coaxials in the back. speakers are powered by another Focal Solid amp. Pioneer head unit. Passenger side door sub just blew out though so they're gettign replaced with either Kicker or Pioneer because I refuse to build out on the door. Damn things stick out far enough so as it is. My last system in my Expedition was all Memphis. I loved it. Memphis makes great stuff.
Does anyone know the size of the speakers in the front doors and rear deck on the standard 2012s (not the upgraded Shaker system)? I emailed my salesman at Ford and haven't heard back (shocking)... delivery still 5 weeks away. /fingertap
Also updated my shopping list in the first post of this thread, I received a quote today from a local dealer and can't wait to a) get the car! and b) hook it up with a killer system.
they are 6x8s but you will have to get 5x7s. and if you want some hertz i can sell you some cause im an installer at the dealer here in macon, ga. they are worth every penny believe me. i have memphis in my car now but will soon be swapping to hertz.
I guess I will be the first one to post up what I have!
I will be keeping the stock deck, but I did replace the front door and rear deck speakers with Polk dxi570's. Sound great, and got a great deal at Best Buy...$48.
I purchased the AOEM-FRD24 from PAC to make the install of the amp go smoother. I'd highly recommend it!
I installed the Powerbass XA-1500d on an amp rack I made.
Mount for the air compressor
Since I got rid of the styrofoam, The trunk floor wouldn't even support a gallon of milk (great design on Ford's part). So i tore off the old particle board and foam and replaced it with 1/2" board, traced to the shape of the original. Now I can actually use my trunk again!
I purchased the encolsure from Zenclosures online. Small 1.25 cubic foot sealed box. Great product, with awesome fit. My sub is an FI Q12.
Okay well this is my system...
I am going to do this with just pics because I am lazy...
Metra dash kit rocks!

Box? Custom fiberglash foam filled deep recessed in the trunk so i cant see it...
Cost? 5-7k installed
