Hello folks I'd like to piggy-back onto this thread if you don't mind. I got a 2013 V6 Convertible (MCA Package) a couple of weeks ago. I too would love to upgrade the front speakers as it seems like they can be greatly improved for a little cost and moderate labor.

I've read through a number of threads with people having some issues with getting speakers to fit properly in the 2013 model, and would like to post my plan here in hopes that you folks can set me straight if I'm off track. I don't know anything about audio but I'm willing to take my time and do the job myself - I like to learn and do the upgrades myself wherever I can.

First - according to Ford here's what I have:

The available Shaker Audio System includes an AM/FM stereo, single-disc CD/MP3 player and six speakers and two subwoofers. It comes standard on the 2013 Mustang V6 Premium, GT Premium and Shelby GT500.
This seems different than what I've been reading here. I see two speaker 'vents' in back seat area, and what might be 4 in the front doors. I'm not worried about the rear speaks - as has been discussed here I understand they are very difficult to get to and hardly worth the trouble.

I don't know where the subwoofers are - if they are accessible it would seem beneficial to upgrade these. I'm guessing that the component and tweeter in each front door count as four speakers. These are what I plan to replace now (and like I said the subs too if they happen to be in the front doors).

Without pulling the doors off (yet) what I think I need is:

Polk Audio DB571 5-by-7-Inch Coaxial Speakers (Pair, Black)
Polk Audio DB571 5-by-7-Inch Coaxial Speakers (Pair, Black)

Metra 72-5600 harnesses

2010 Mustang V6 door speaker spacer

Does this seem correct to you folks? Has anyone actually replaced the speakers in a 2013 premium V6 convertible?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
