Hey guys, I have a thread on DIYMA and could use some SN95 specific comments and advice on this system install. A good friend of mine has allowed me to work my magic, good or bad...hopefully good, on his low mileage 95 vert. His CD + AM/FM Stereo unit just couldn't help cutting out every few years or so and he was done with buying replacement FORD Factory parts that cost a lot and wouldn't last. I looked through quite a few posts online on various mustang forums and tried to take notes on what others have done and what works / doesn't work. I have spent approx 3 months on this... working on it off and on over this summer. Early in the "reasearch phase" of this build... I was made aware of the fact that the double-din sized A/C radio bezel of the newer model mustangs fit over the older face area of this '95 model.. so I took that approach to the factory head unit area and made sure what I planned would be a good fit. I test fit the more modern bezel and it looks like a good match. The two tabs you can see from the old split style radio config easily break off and allow room for the full double-din sized radio of your choice. A, Kenwood eXcelon DPX791BH, is planned for the double-din area... http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_95019.html Overall, the general idea is to simply "upgrade" every stock component to a better and more modern version( in the same factory location) + add subs in the trunk for some added "boom-boom-pow". Amps will be all "Old School-ish" amps: 5ch - Eclipse EA3532 - Running the 5x7/6x8" Front Coaxial + Dayton 3" units In the front door pods & the two 6.5" "subwoofers" in the rear pods. Front Coaxial Speakers: Infinity Kappa 6829CF http://www.crutchfield.com/S-bF2fPq8hBKh/p_1086829CF/Infinity-Kappa-682-9cf.html MTX Amps - Qty2 Dynamic @ 14.4V =800 Watts each. (MTX 6500D & MTX 805D ) On the Alpine Type R 10' s. Kenwood head unit will drive the rear 3" Daytons. This was a project I wanted to be involved with because this is for a friend's son who is turning 17 and this will be his first car etc etc. At his age, I also had a white convertible with a stereo system and it is a time in my life I will never forget. My first step was to quickly evaluate the fitment of the eBay sourced 10" sub enclosures. You may have guessed.... those are Alpine Type R 10" Dual 4ohm VC subs, circa 1998-1999 time frame. I kept those subs and used them in every car stereo throughout high school and college. At some point they lay dormant for 5+ years in my garage while "life" happened and I got married, had kids etc. I was excited about being able to use them again. After fitment was verified, I proceeded to remove all panels and see what I was up against. Since this has the factory Mach 460 system, I planned on simply unbolting the factory amps and replace them with much more powerful aftermarket versions. If you've ever removed the factory amps... there are some studs that require "help" to be free of their original locations. Take a medium sized pair of pliers and work the stud back and forth... it will eventually come loose and be free. Of course, I also recycled my MTX Thunder Monoblock Amps from back in the day. With the cumbersome studs out of the way, they fit great. With the test fitment of the basic components completed, I went to town on the sound deadening and tackled every area I could, knowing the trunk would be the worst culprit for rattles etc. Once that was done, I re-mounted the amps and started adding wire... lots of wire. Because of the angle of the power and ground terminals, I had to get creative and fashion some creative lug adapters for them so the ring lugs didn't protrude into the back seat area. Everything fits pretty good. Next up, rear speaker pods... and some complications.
