Stereo's

I would be interested to see if anyone has any pictures, or has done stereo work to there mustang i own a 94 GT conv, and it doesn't give you alot of room to play with, interms of installing subs and amps, withought loosing most of your trunk, one idea i saw was someone you had the subs kinda bulit into the rear seats, with the speaker showing, and having a speedster cover over it, looked good, i needa throw in some bass!.. somewhere 8)

MTX makes a sub enclosure for the 94-00 Mustang trunk that holds a single 10" subwoofer. They make both amplified ($420-$499) and non amplified($300) versions.

I've seen a number of Mustangs with what you were refering to. It's basically a custom build board to mount the subs to and i believe they use the trunk as the "box" with the speakers pointing into the passenger compartment. It looks really awesome if it's done right, with the right carpeting covering the board/box. If you make it right you can even have it so the rear seats are still in place, although you will need to fold them down when you want to use the subs.

On my car i have nothing more than a Pioneer head unit playing through my Mach 460 speakers.

I was looking more closely at that picture and i believe somebody else also used to make an enclosure specifically for the Mustang trunk which fit alot nicer. That one looks a little generic.

yeah your right about that, does'nt look to great, but what you suggested about the speakers in the seats, is what i was thinking, i guess i saw a few pictures on one of the mustang magazines out there, looks very sweet, with some nice custom upolstry would be sharp, and have amps and whatnot in the trunk, all dressed up in a box with some neons perhaps, i'm going to look into this some more, perhaps a future paycheque down the road, this might be a pretty neat investment. 8)

I found a couple a picture of setups like that. These were showcars, so there is alot of "bling", but you get the idea. The first two are pretty cool because of the way the guy changed the rear seats so the speakers could work with the seats in place. Looks weird, but it's a cool idea. Another problem with this design is that it looks like it takes up alot of his trunk space.
The second two pictures are of a different car with a similar design.

I built a custom box for my '96 Convertible. It's pretty standard, but I put an angled 'shelf' on the front of the box where the speakers mount. I pulled out the plastic part in the trunk that runs under the top well and slid the box under it. You have to be careful about clearance so the top, when down, doesn't rest on the woofer surrounds. I've got about an inch of clearance on mine. I put some flames under the carpet and mounted the amp in the center, then put my cap on the side. It still takes up a good bit of the trunk, but i can fit groceries and things like that in it. Of course, if you run speakers that can use a smaller enclosure, then you'll save more space than I did. I can probably take some pictures and send em to you or if you have any questions shoot me an email at [email protected]
