Im not sure what thoes speakers are in the door most thoes pics I pulled of cardomain. I have just started on my Audio system a couple weeks ago I added 2-10" JL Audio subs & a JL Audio Amp to the stock system. I got my amp turned down so the bass wont drown out the stock highs but I like the way it sounds.Nice pix. I've only just bought the car, and need some perf. mods before shoring up audio, but preplanning never hurt.
Those Focals in the door sub locations are exactly what I want to do. Are those the 8" mini-subs from Focal?
I can't block off the drop down seats or put amps in the trunk... need room for getting my weapons to martial arts class. But I intend to replace the spare tire with an electronic inflator and a can of fix-a-flat and stow an amp in there.
I've always envisioned the best soundstage for a coupe is to delete the rear fill speakers, throw some Focal 182.3s in the front, possibly some of the 8" subs in the doors and one 10-12" sub in the trunk. 200x2 wrms @ 4ohms to the front components of a bridged 100x4 amp, and a 200x2 amp bridged to mono 400x1 wrms @ 4ohms, maybe drop it to 2 and go with a smaller amp if it's a decent build quality. Haven't considered power to two 8" subs up front though....
I got the hookup in my center consel & I hooked up my MP3 player to it but I must say I am NOT impresed with the way it sounds. Im not sure if its because I got a MP3 & not the iPod or most my music on there comes from LimeWire but it sound kinda shity so Im still playing my CD's for now.I need to get a new deck atleast. Something with an AUX jack so I can hook up my iPod (got my 'stang one model year too soon).
Ive had a lot of Alpine in my past cars I just sold my old school Alpine CVA-1003 I think Im gonna switch brands & try something different this time around. Ive had my eye on this for a while now & I think it might be the next thing I buy for my system, but Im not sure wich brand to go with I have narrowed it down two choicesheres mine n I love it!!!!
I had a d300 n loved it and sold it with the SHO so I had to get another and next step up was the d310!
... have some respect for us daily Mustang drivers sir.I turn my stereo on, oh, never.. seriously. So if I do anything at any point, it will be super subtle as I'll never use it.
Sound on your MP3s depends on how they're encoded - they may sound the same on cheap computer speakers, but on better speakers anything below 256kbps will be pretty ringy and muddy and just generally ugly. Finding anything above 198kbps on the musicsharing services may be difficult....I got the hookup in my center consel & I hooked up my MP3 player to it but I must say I am NOT impresed with the way it sounds.
