I am just in the process of upgrading my 1994 Mustang's Mach460 system. It goes into the shop tomorrow morning, so I am looking forward to it. I opted to go with MB Quart PCE216 speakers in the front and DKE168 speakers in the rear with a Rockford Fosgate T4004 amp to drive them. Apparently 6x9 speakers won't fit Fords. The front speakers are 2 way components and my plan is to put the tweeters in the Mach460 enclosures by the rear view mirrors. The front speakers are also 6.5 inch rounds instead of 6x8 as the folks at the store said I would get better sound that way. The rear are coaxials and mainly used for filler.Originally Posted by geaux
Like you, I am not planning on using a sub at this point, as the trunk space is already too damned small. I may change my mind later as I love some base, especially on my Tchiakovsky 1812 CD (real cannons used for the recording so it can be devastating to some speakers).
I don't think it is the tweeters that vibrate your mirrors as I usually find it is the bass. I listen to all sorts of music including rock, blues, jazz, classical, etc. so I was also looking for good clean sound.
This setup is a lot more expensive than Alpine which I had also considered (about $1600 vs $850 for an Alpine system), but the folks at the sound shop are really sharp and appear to do a much nicer job than Best Buy or Circuit City from what I have seen.
With regards to sound deadening, I think it is worthwhile. It removes vibration on the door panels and keeps the music inside your car.
