Will be starting a SQ audio build on a new 2014 this week. The Taurus will retain the stock Sony
navigation unit to keep a OEM unit look and feel. Will be running fully active 2 way up front and a sing 12" sub in the rear. The trunk area will house the DSP processor, amps and sub in a stealth setup to maximize space for daily use and clean OEM look.

The equipment and products

- Mosconi 4to6 DSP
- Mosconi Gladen one 120.4 amplifier
- JL JX 1000/1.
- PHD FB 6.1 Pros 2 way components
- JL Audio 12w6 v2 in sealed enclosure
- Focal BAM X.X.X.L Sound deadening material
- Black hole sound tiles for door panels
- Stinger 100% copper 14ga speaker wire, 4 gauge power wire
- Stinger RCA cables

Stay tune for updates

Love the new SHO's. Wondering why you went with a JX amp though? The rest of the equipment is in a much higher class than that amp. Just odd to see a Mosconi and a JX series in the same install

That's the amp the customer is supplying me with for the install. It was out of his budget range to add a new Mosconi amp for the sub. If it was up to me it would be all Moasconi AS amps.

so you have the same sony system then? Do you have a system in it? If so did you use a dsp and did you go pre amp signal or post amp?

You are full of ****.. You have a focus. Mommy's car isn't yours.

In short, I agree, however one could argue that the term "mine" could be applied in the situation of it being owned for a family. Such as my house, I don't pay for it, I live in it though. I don't pay for my mom's car, but I ride in it almost everyday.
