I don't think the Ford factory stuff sounds bad by any means. The worst radio in a car made post-2000 is probably better than a lot of the aftermarket stuff available only 10 years prior.

One of the main differences IMHO is the "crispness" - highs sound high as opposed to tinny, lows are tight as opposed to mushy - can't really think of another way to describe it.

Of course, I am half blind, so maybe my hearing is better than some folks? Don't really know, but my rust bucket pickup with a nice eXcelon head unit and 5 1/4" Boston speakers produces "cleaner" sound than the Shaker 1000 I have in the Mustang. Not as much bass by any means, but it sounds superior to my home theater system as far as separation of frequencies. JMHO...


2006 GT - Vortech polished w/ intercooler, Eibach suspension, Hurst short-throw, some other goodies - tuned by Paul's High Performance. It moves...

and it collects dust admirably while parked for repairs in the garage...

SOLD - 1995 Black Mustang GT, AODE. Loved it, but I had to let it go...
