Stereo upgrade question

So I have a single CD stereo with SYNC, and factory woofer. I am actually impressed with the sound quality of the speakers, but was wondering what types of stereo upgrades people have done and maintained the factory speaker setup?

So am I. I tried putting a aftermarket Stereo in myself and it will not turn on.
The web is really not good on help.

i upgraded mine with a enwood and its awesome
but of course i had the original 04 not a fancy schmancy set up like you guys got
but after taking 5 minutes to load only to discover i was on the 6.7 forum....

i figured i earned the right to post here wrong or not

ok allthat gibberish out of the way i did see supposed upgrades for the newer style stereos but i think they (Ford) have them locked so you cant get all the features interacting with the truck the stock one offers (if i remember right and to be fair i am not upgrading my truck anytime soon s i more skimmed than read thoroughly)
sorry i am not more actual help but i would call a good custom stereo shop in your area and ask them and be sure to find a good one not just some dolt who wants to sell a $3,000 stereo

I like mead

I had two 13.5" JL subs and a JL 1,200.1 / a set of JL C5 components and a set of JL coaxial on a JL 600.4 ran through an Audison bit one while using my factory deck. Took first at several shows

I have upgraded to the pioneer AVH4200NEX and it’s night and day difference over factory head unit, Sync vs 1 sucks so I did the maestro RR set up to retain all my steering wheel functions and now have apple car play and love it!

Going to be putting that same setup in mine in about 2 weeks.

You will love it, make sure to go into your settings in your old stereo before removal and turn off Bluetooth or sync will stay on and interfere with your new stereo

Interesting topic. I currently have a '12 with Nav/ Sync, Sony speakers (all stock). No real complaints, but I'm looking at a '16 with the same system, and thinking about upgrading the speakers and maybe sub. I actually like the display/ head unit, so I'm going to keep that stock.
