Default Post your audio systems!

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:

RECEIVER -- Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT Navigation receiver

AMP 1 -- 4 Channel -- JL Audio JX360/4

COMPONENT SPEAKERS -- Front Door & Rear Deck -- 2 sets of JL Audio C5-570x's

AMP 2 -- Mono -- JL Audio JX1000/1D

ENCLOSED SUBWOOFER -- JL Audio CLS110RG-W7 10" 1500W 3-ohm Subwoofer Enclosure

Dealer also doing 20% tint all around, installing a Viper 5902 alarm system, and throwing in a Valentine One radar detector.

Total price tag = $3,604.96 (not including install)

Also deliberating if I want to add the rear reverse cam...

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.

I went with the Shelby Kicker system. Way too easy not to love it. The kicker speakers sound fantastic.

Updated again, received a cheaper quote today with better components. I'm psyched. Now all JL Audio.

If you're interested in JL Audio equipment I have a bunch of stuff sitting in the garage. All of their top end gear.


  • JL Audio ZR570-CSi
  • JL Audio C5-570
  • Sub - JL Audio 10w7 ProWedge
  • JL Audio CleanSweep


Some pictures of the gear can be found here.

Thanks, will keep that in mind.

On a separate note, what's up with the Integration Adaptor? My God.. could it be any cheaper looking? Has anyone found a workaround or figured out a way to improve the look of this thing?

How do you replace the head unit in the car with that huge integrated unit it comes with?

Metra makes a kit for the dash if you want to go with a single or double din headunit. Scosche is making a kit with digital A/C and climate controls, but it will cost like $370-$390 bucks.

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.

I'm happy with the sound.
