I'm pretty sure you have to take out the rear deck panel from the inside. The speakers drop in from the top & can't be removed from the bottom (trunk area). At least that's the design on the 07's.

Oops, my mistake. I took a quick look and thought they would drop out but didn't look at it hard at all. I have no plans on changing them.

You don't need to remove the package tray, although it will make it easier. If I recall correctly, you will need a torx bit to get the factory stuff out. This is a bit of a pain because of the rear window. Check around your local hardware store for an appropriate tool. Otherwise, it's straightforward and simple.

Unless you like running wires all throughout your car, I recommend these adapters from crutchfield. Unless you are going for SPL competitions, the factory wiring is fine.

You seem to have some stereo knowledge. Can you answer this question for me?

I would like to use my OEM head unit and use the “500w” OEM amp to power the door and deck speakers and put passive crossovers in so the doors and deck speakers don’t get anything under 80-100mh (still thinking of where to cross it over at). And to finish it off by running a 10” self powered tube in the trunk. Could I set it up like this? Where would I get a signal wire from? Split it off of a deck speaker?

thanks

Here is a writeup from another forum where a guy installed an amp using the Shaker 500. It might be a good foundation for what you want to do.

http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-2010-mustangs/299212-how-to-amp-install-w-pics-56k-warning.html

I believe the stock amps only power the door subs. The head unit powers the other speakers. I guess you could get a standard crossover that would come with a component system or something similar, but wiring it up seems like it might be a bit of a pain.

I ripped my shaker apart about 2 days after I got the car, so I'm not as familiar with it's workings, but I've probably changed my system setup about 5-6 times, so I've scoured the internet for different products and other info. Hope this helps.

Yes you do, In 07 they covered the speakers from the top and you have to remove the back panel.

The current Crutchfield installation guide provides detailed and illustrated instructions. I can't find my copy but I know I've seen it somewhere on this site. '05 and '06 coupes have grilles that come off from the top. '07 to '09 are covered by the rear shelf trim and require a bit more disassembly. Fortunately, my '07 is a convertible which was decidedly easier.
