Has anyone done a setup for componants to the doors or kicks in a new 5 SPEED 05 MUSTANG? I dont care about automatics, thats easy. I need help because mine is a 5 speed.

putting comps in the doors is the same for both auto or 5 speed. Kicks will be different. I know doing kicks in the 04 and earlier you have to bend the clutch pedal to clear kicks.

im not looking to just bolt in componants, thats my problem. And I dont want to run something REAL expensive, because im looking to glass it, but I may have to go with a 5.25 and basic bolt in. *****, but these cars arent really friendly.

Gas issue is a TSB, stop being so rough with your plastic pieces and your tranny whine is prolly the rear end gears.

Had an 05 sixxer that had the whine. Moved to an 05 GT and that car doesn't have it.

how do you know im rough with my plastic pieces LOL. I baby this car really. The air vent came undone when i barely pushed it. The e-brake handle cover snapped when i hardly pulled it up one day, and the seat things snapped when my brother was loading the car for a trip.

I did a focal mid/tweet up high in the door and put the dayton reference 8's in the door/sub enclosure. It all sounds good but holy hell it was a pain. The 8's didn't fit without some surgery (a little heat and remolding of the enclosure). I haven't figured out a grill for the 8's just yet, luckily the dayton 8's don't look bad raw.

Running new speaker wire through the molex gig in the door jamb was an absolute joy as well.

Here is a pic of mine with the summer 20's. They look good but are way too heavy!

Less you count having to wipe all the drool off it as people check it out.... :yumyum:

By the way, as long as we are talking Mustangs... Will Boston Pro60s fit in the 06 Convertible door (replacing Shaker 500)? I sure hope so or the shop that ordered my stuff is gonna get pissy.

Not sure if the convertable door is any different. If its the same as the coupe you will have to take the pod for the stock shaker 500 upper door speakers out and make an mdf plate to mount them too. Should work aslong as depth doesn't get you.

My '98 Stang had lots of plastics break. I would make at least a trip a year to the local Ford salvage yard and pick up replacement stuff. For $15 per trip it is easy to forgive your baby and get back that lovin' feelin'.

Then I went and sold her (with the $6K sound system intact) to a newly licensed 18-yo girl... *sob* It was like taking your dog to the pound to be put down...

Can they put the 6" where the Shaker "subwoofer' is and put the tweets up there?

Just make sure your 6" will be happy with 12 liters sealed space, make an mdf ring and you should be good. I think the depth you can play with is 3.25, but the motor of the speaker can't be very big in diameter.

Check out the pics here:

The first pick on the 2nd page kinda shows where the enclosure makes a big motor'd door speaker a tight fit in the stock sub location. My Daytons were 3.5" deep and they definately didn't fit without modifications that took a few beers to make me comfortable with. I'm guessing with a 6" speaker you can manuever the motor of the speaker to fit alot better.

So the sub enclousure is built into the door panel itself...not the door?

Rochambeau

Kewl... the mounting depth on the Pro60's is listed as 2-3/8". The magic of neodyminium magnets?

And I love that brochure touting how wonderful those doors are when what they are actually saying is... Now the automaker can put in an even CRAPPIER sound system and pass it off as good.

Yup, somehow the door panel vibration isn't horrible, its there, but livable.

Rochambeau - I don't think you should have any issues. Neo is definately where its at.

you could always make a speaker ring, and glass a little cover over it make the speaker stick out slightly farther.

I'm wanting to put some DD 6.5 LT's in my doors and port them through the extra speaker location...then run image dynamics mini horns under the dash....

10-05-2006, 06:25 AM
problem with the doors and all is i dont have leather/vinyl interior. just cloth and plastic. so glassing the doors would result in a terrible looking interior.

10-05-2006, 06:31 AM
personally i would go with the upgraded sound doors, if they looked at all appealing to me, but that big circle sticking out just KILLS the door in my opinion. I may just make pods, but then i have that plastic screen where the stock speaker went.
