Smile 1969 Mustang in need of a new sound system

So i have had my mustang for a few years, and my old AM radio isnt cutting it anymore. I am looking to get a new radio, speakers, amp (if needed) and i was planning on putting the speakers under the window behind the rear seat. I also would like to put the new receiver in the place of the old one, it has the ac under it, so i know i will have to do some minor modifications. Its a coupe btw. I would greatly appreciate any advise, tips, or anything. Andddd this is also my first post! Glad to be on the team.

I have the same question. I just got my first car and it's a 1965 mustang coupe, so consider me completly ignorant in anything that can't be learned from what I have seen in the Internet. It has an old radio, which I am replacing, and old speakers. I am thinking about putting in speakers on the panel behind the dash, but I don't know if I should then by thicker wood, because I will have to cut holes in it, or if the original wood is fine. I was also thinking about putting in speakers inside the door, but that is mainly skepticism. I was also wondering if I could put one or two subs in the trunk but I would still want enough room for the spare tire etc. if I puts the subs in would I need an amp and where could I put that?
All of these projects if at all able to be done by hand I would like to do so(for $ and the experience)

Not quite true, they list the Retrosound tuners...which are excellent units, the speakers are of a generic spec so if you call them and tell them the type of music you listen to...they will recommend the correct speakers....the size is literally generic.

I noticed that on there website, but i am not looking for a retrosound tuner, sorry i should have made it clearer.
I did talk to a local auto expert, and they recomended putting one in the glove box instead of dash. I think thats what i am going to do. Thanks for everyones imput!

This is what the trunk in my 67 coupe looks like if you need any ideas. I have 2 6X9's in the package tray, 2 6.5" Kickpanel speakers, and 2 10" subs in the truck. Those are very common so you shouldn't have any trouble finding some.
