2013 Shaker System Subwoofer Changes (Pics)

Hi Guys,

I just swapped out the door subwoofers in my 2013 Mustang GT Premium with the Shaker System.

I put in the Shelby Kicker Subs and will be running an amp to them. I understand these Kicker subs are 2 ohms.

Ford appears to have changed the subwoofers with the 2013 Shaker system, and this was a surprise to me, I hadn't run across pictures or mentions of the new subs on any of the forums I joined since getting my Mustang.

The subs that came out of my car are similar in appearance to the old ones (same tiny magnet, still dual voice coil)

But they have a new label:

2/2 Ohms 35W/35W Made in China ... DR3T - 18808 BD35B8 GEWAA


Just wanted to share this info that I hadn't read anywhere else in case it might be useful to someone.

It's painfully obvious that the factory amp in the 2013 GT Shaker System is really under powered for the Shelby Kicker Sub upgrades.

Thus I will be amping them and my audio upgrade will be complete.

Focal Integration in the front doors
Focal Polyglass in the rear deck (of a 2006 vintage)
Kicker Shelby 8" Door Subs
Memphis Audio 12" in a sealed box in the spare tire well
Audison Bit 10 for EQ

For Power:
Arc Audio XDI 600.1
Arc Audio XDI 800.5

It's phenomenal and sounds so much better than the factory system!
