i would go with two 10s ported...if u have never seen a mustang conv. trunk, you would know why. there isnt much space. if u do 2 12s sealed you wont have much trunk space left. i have 2 10s ported in a coupe and i have just enough room for a couple bags of grocerys.

thanks for the suggestion, i was thinking of maybe 2 JL 10w7's or somehing along that line.

10w7's will probably be too deep to use the wheel wells, and the 'vert has even less height than my coupe does..... You could do 3 8w7's across the back.... ?

3- 8w7's may not be to bad, I was also thinking of deleting my rear seat hence making room for the 10's

if you really stop and think about it and ask your self, Do we buy a mustang for the trunk space or do we buy a mustang to go fast and look good doing it. Trunk space IMO isn't an issue to most mustang owners, we know what we are getting ourselves into before we buy em. so why not just fill up what we have with subs :)

so just wondering, did you have to replace your stock system amps when you replaced your HU or were you able to leave it stock

still have my stock amps. i have a turn on pop (stock amps coming on) when the cd player turns on. i need to put a resistor in the remote wire leading to the amps remote wire. i think u use a 1k ohm resister. but my stock amps still power the factory speakers.

jalverson

aight cool maybe i will just do that , wasn't looking forward to having to buy two amps just yet

mustangowner
12-14-2005, 03:56 PM
or if u wanted to, you could buy a harness made for our cars, it bypasses the factory amps. i started to but i didnt want my comps running off my hu. do a search on here, i know its been discussed before. cant remember who makes it.

good point, but thats when u slow down, and take a second look, if shes ugly u can use the power under your foot to get the hell outta there without being seen by her.

aint nothin wrong with that. i love goin fast, been at 130mph one time, very scary...110-120 couple times. but i look **** good doin it. lowered 1 1/2", white 2000 gt with factory exterior with wing moved back 2.5". my car looks way longer than a stock stang for some reason. looks sweet though.

How about a single 15? Sounds great, and it comes out easily for spare tire access, track day, or just groceries.
