Couple quick questions for you. To preface, here is my last SQ build thread: The Build - Car ripped to shreads!
I'm putting a system in my toy car - see below
I have a built motor and a Procharger D1 sitting in the garage, so let me start by saying I'm trying to balance speed and sound (aka keep weight down).
Going in to the vehicle (most from the thread above):
Kicker SS6.5 Components
I don't want to add 100 pounds of weight to the vehicle, so I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. That being said, my questions are:
1) Do any of you have experience with the 05-09 Mustangs? How much to they rattle? Where do I need to put sound deadner? I'm not tearing out the headliner and floor like I did on my last build, but I don't want a **** load of rattling (both inside and out), so would like to know where to look. I have always used Raamat in the past. Anything better value out there nowadays? Where do I need to focus on in the Mustang?
2) I haven't found a definitive answer in all the research I have been doing on whether or not a 6.5" speaker will fit in the stock 6x8 location in the front doors. I want to use my Kicker SS's and will chop the metal on the doors if need be (as well as fabricate rings), but am curious if they will fit with no work.
3) On my last car (similar to the Mustang, 2 door non-hatchback), I didn't run rear speakers as the front fill sounded perfect with the glass work I did to mount my tweeters. Are these Mustangs similar? I don't want to do anything other than mount the SS components in the stock locations and leave it at that. Not the best for imaging I know, but I think the D3 has time alignment and I can cheat and compensate with that.
Thanks for any help you guys can provide.
