I had 6x9s in the rear deck and 5" in the front door.
Can't remember if I had an amp, but the sound was good.

"I can spend time working on the Dattos, or wasting money at the strip club. You make the call." :D

I'll put on chain mail and a dirt bike tire jock strap and drive it!!!!!

My original plan was to install 6x9s into my rear luggage rack deck. But after installing my rollbar (making that seating space unusable) the opportunity arose for me to tear out the back seats and putting boards back there. So that's what I did.


Updates; I currently have the boards in place, but without holes for the speakers. I'm waiting on the tools to cut it properly (I'm living far  enough away from my tools that I can't work on it daily). Once I get the speakers mounted and installed, I'll post pics.

OP, as long as you seal the piece you made and the holes in the parcel shelf, you should be good. My daily 07 Crown Vic has the speakers mounted in the parcel shelf, everything else is sealed from air leaks. With a pioneer double din deck and new pioneer ford specific 5x7s it’s amazing how well it sounds. Great mids, punchy bass, nice highs.
Chrome door handles are under rated.
