Daryl Johnson's 2006 Ford Mustang GT

Todd Cabell is the Senior Director of E-Commerce at Crutchfield. He drives a 2000 Ford F-150 with an Alpine stereo in the dash, Polk/MOMO speakers, a Rockford Fosgate amplifier, and an MTX Thunderform under the rear seat. He hopes to one day outfit his 1962 Mercury Comet with a worthy sound system as well.

Installation Description

I borrowed the plans from another Mustang owner and built an amp wall in the trunk and mounted the amps to it. I then installed all the speakers and ran the wiring. I installed the head unit and then finally the XM Satellite Radio and the iPod adapter. Installation was pretty easy, just had to take my time. At first look you can't tell my car has an aftermarket audio system until I crank it up, which is exactly what I wanted. The installation sheets and tips provided by Crutchfield really assisted in the installation process.

Q&A Section

Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?

The sound clarity and quality of aftermarket over OEM audio is so much nicer.

What's the first thing you show people about your installation?

The sound.

Why did you choose these products?

I have always loved Alpine head units and amps, and it's hard to beat Infinity speakers.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?

Running the wires to the front door speakers.

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?

No planned upgrades unless I add the Alpine navigation component.
