I currently am rebuilding a 99' Mustang from the ground up and i am now at the interior. The whole thing has been torn apart and every panel has DynaMat Extreme on it. I want to make the best of the dynamat and put some Insanely loud speakers in my car. A friend of mine with a Dodge neon had Sony Xplod Comp speakers and Power Acoustic tweets and it was deafening.... i want better. Im not really concerned with the price. I had a similar mustang before (V6 Version) without the Mach Set. Does the Mach create any problems? here is what was in the V6

Front - JL XR650
Back - JL XR650
SUBS - 3 JL 10W3v2
Amps - Phoenix Gold Titanium 600.2 bridged for subs
Phoenix Gold Tantrum 600.4 for speakers.

I want louder than this. Any suggestions? i was thinking BA Pro's or Kicker SS Comp?

Also, will the amps in the Mach set be strong enough for now to power the speakers?
I still have the tantrum amp to power the highs. should i still use this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Mach460 Specs (http://www.flemworld.com/Mach460/mach.html)

Rip out the mach460 and get some new stuff if money isn't an issue. That is what I am in the process of doing. The mach is crap.

Amp Specs:
Ford Hi/Mid-Pass Amp - 2x60w = 120w Max. 2x30w = 60w Nom.
Ford Mid/Low-Pass Amp - 2x85w = 170w Max. 2x43.5w = 85w Nom.
230w / 13v = 17.7 amps Nom. 4 Ohms at 2% THD
460w / 13v = 35.4 amps Max. 4 Ohms at 2% THD

Did you get rid of all the mach460 wiring, or did you just leave it in?

oh i agree they are worthless, but what speakers to use is my concern. im not sure which route to go. i could just stick with the XR component set

leave it there so if you sell the car you can put it back to stock. I would just pull the plugs on the amps.

nothing has been removed thus far. Im at the purchasing stage. I dont have any problems wiring, i can handle that, but as far as what to buy, there is just too many choices to know what route to go.

I left the wiring in there but the rear 2 amps and the one in the dash are gone. I went with a pair of Boston RC820 components because I wanted the 5x7's in the stock holes.

what about wiring? 0 guage througout?

if you want to keep the factory wiring, then it will be a ***** to add an amp to the speakers. i ripped it all out of the cobra, and went from scratch. also, rip out that whole black amp rack thing in the rear, it will allow much more room for the box. as for the bostons, go with the SL80's.

can i leave the factory wiring in there for the mean time? will the guage of the wiring be enough to support those BA? im not doing the sub right now, just the speakers.
