Door speakers

Which ones should I get? And when amp should I go with? I dont want to go crazy, I just want better sound. I know there are tons of different set ups I could go with, just wondering what yall think is the best bang for the moderate buck.
thanks,
brad

I know I'm a little late on this thread, but go to www.crutchfields.com for your speakers and other stuff. You can trust them for the product and for help getting your door panel off to replace them. The prices and selection can't be beat and they offer adapter plugs to fit. I also have two subwoofer contacts for you if you want them. One sits behind the rear seats the other sits inside the console if you have buckets. There is also one that sits behind the center console on the floor and can be color matched to your interior.

I don't work for Crutchfields.

That's a lotta money for speakers but I also understand u get what u pay for.

You seem to be pretty savvy with this stuff. I'm def not. I saw where the micro sub from JL audio (8") has great reviews. Do u think I would be able to fit that sub behind my seat with minimal trimming?

I also have the 2011 nav system. How do u recommend me tying into the ford nav sync system?

Not trying to hijack the thread. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have experience with the stock sub or retrofitting an aftermarket in the stock housing. I think there's a few dudes on here that have done it, might wanna search for it? I know u can get an adapter to wire in a sub to the stock unit. It's made by PAC. called PAC link of something of that sort. I fit a 12" shallow mount kicker and kicker box I bought from crutchfield. Just trimmed the carpet paneling behind the seat. Fit perfectly, no loss of function of moving of the seats.

I'm just a consumer like you. But I have upgraded many cars that I have owned through the years. Auto manufacturer's have made upgrading, except for speakers, almost impossible due to systems like Sync for Ford and Bose for GM. Those add-ons are the most difficult and Crutchfield has been trying to provide systems that add to the factory radio's without having to scrap the radio's. The amount of money that manufacturers charge for marginal sound is a rip-off. If you can buy a car without any radio, NAV or speakers, you can very easily make your car sound ten times better for about the same cost and have much more capability including an internet hotspot and video in the dash.

I think the easiest and most cost effective project you can do is change the speakers. They are easy to do and the cost is not bad. The second thing you can do for better sound is to add a subwoofer with minimal cost with a gigantic change in sound. Unless you're a sound purist, that is all you need to upgrade.
