Disassembling a 2011 Mustang GT for a stereo install

I changed the fronts and rears, added a Stealthbox to the trunk, and added amplification for the whole works.

Stock head unit, you cannot tell anything was changed (until you turn on the stereo, then it's pretty obvious )

You can see the final results of the remaining trunk space here:

Don't lose much mounting the amps like this.

Hey its been a long time since i got on the forum but i recently installed both subs and amp and kept everything else the same. i have one question though how did you hook up everything to your factory stereo. i was unable to find a wire to tap into that i could use as a remote start for my amp so i tapped into the ignition acc which i didnt want to do so any tips or suggestions?

Has anyone tried the new Kicker upgrade that adds on to the factory base system with speaker amps, a sub and sub amps to supposedly tune the entire system?

Curious how good it really is....

I've heard that system in a Shelby American modified GT500, and it sounds great and can make your ears bleed!

I took a different (cheaper) approach. Just changed out the four stock 6 x 8 with Pioneer TS-D6802R. It sounds incredibly better than stock, and the Pioneers could handle extra power if you want to give it to them.

I left the stock door bottom mid subs alone. I pulled a cover off one of them, and they are not built too bad. Much better than the upper door speakers. If I ever change them, I will use a 6.5" with appropriate adapter to fit the hole, or a drop-in 8". DVC 2 ohm speakers are available, so I think a better base response is obtainable if you are willing to spend the $$$.

Wink Base radio upgrade GT 2012

I went back to OEM radio, I was not happy with the Metra dash kit as far as appearance wise. I bought online from e***. It was missing brakets and trim. Plus the dash kit would turnon by it self when the car was off. Other than that it worked fine. I could not get help from Metra to purchase the brakets.
I just installed an AudioControl L6i line converter to OEM radio and it sounds amazing. It beats PAC one I had before the aftermarket radio. The L6i outputs 9.5 volts, I have it about 3/4 to match the 6 volts input on my amp, I ear the difference compare to a 2-3 volts preamp output from the aftermarket radio. I am able to turn the volume all the way and hear clean undistorted sound.
I have MB Quart four channel amp. The L6i has an auto turn on for external amp.
I am in the process of rewiring the speakers, currently only the rear speakers and 10' Bazooka sub connected.

I put most of the Kicker system in my 12 GT. I used these as my main speakers (Infinity Reference 6832cf 6 x 8/5 x 7-Inch, 180-Watt High Performance Two-Way Loudspeaker). Everything else was the Kicker system.
The only problem I have with it is that there is no way to adjust the sub. If you have some bass heavy music you'll kave to turn down the bass from the HU.

I did something very similar to my base 13'. The LCi6 I have is absolutely amazing and if you consider getting one you can purchase the separate bass control knob to install somewhere discreet in the front. Still considering buying one...
