    after a week I will say I have lowered the volume some and the sound is totally better than average. Nothing to brag about but huge improvement over the merely adequate factory setup.

    what I have learned is that to get from average to very good will require ditching the factory speakers and getting seperate tweeters for the front to 'lift' the soundstage....

    I am not sure I will bother... have to remove the A pillar trim and install crossover hardware under the dash... a total PITA!


    I can go better than average to good by just replacing the factory speakers with better quality ones. That will probably be good enough for me at some point.

    Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons, some classical and Jazz - mostly

    I have been listening to 'ambient' or some such lately...



    best thing about Pandora is it throws things in there I am not expecting. How I found Global Communication & Apes to Angel by Pitch Black

    @CRUDS would HATE them both - LOL

    Yeah, aftermarket head unit is night and day difference over factory radio. I put in a Pioneer 2300 NEX head unit, kenwood 2 way door speakers, jbl amp and pioneer 10 sub under the rear seat of mt 2011 F150. I bypassed the stupid ford Sync, needed a maestro harness and am just using the Pioneer android auto for blue tooth commands. You should replace the front door speakers, it does make a huge difference, rears not as much.
