Can someone with experience help me get some decent sound from my foxbody? I've replaced the head unit,, dash, door and rear speakers in my 93 LX a couple years ago and have highs but essentially no mids and no lows at all. I am not using an aftermarket amp either and when I turn the volume up, the highs get distorted.

Can anyone help me build a good system? I'm not looking for bass banging around my neighborhood, just a nice evenly distributed sound system that I can crank up that sounds good.

I have a vert that I plan on adding a system to.
New head unit (TBD)
4 channel Amp probably no less than 50w per channel rms.
Will look at speakers when the time comes.
Powered sub such as a bazooka tube or similar, 8" or 10".
An option is also a powered Fosgate 10" like my son's, 300w, nice clean kick (sealed box).
Your distortion issue is from not having enough power from your head unit.

Thanks for the reply, when it comes to sound, I have no knowledge at all.

Before I post a pic, do you have one of yours?

Yep. You must have an amp. Crutchfield.com is where I get my stuff from. My friend owned the local sound shop here and I could still buy cheaper from them. They are also happy to chat with you about what you need according to what you want out of the system. Don't buy junk and use quality wire. Good luck with it.
