That's the trick. Look at my seats. They are level with my floor. The factory height is retained completely. It is thanks to the plastic spacer in our vehicles (that aren't Hybrids.)beachbumberry said:i thought about a stealth box, but i still want to be able to have a flat floor when the seat is laid down.
That's good to know. My 2011 does not have the factory sub but my panel has the cut out for that tweeter even though I don't have that option. Was wondering what it wasDavis137 said:That thing that looks like a tweeter above the subwoofer is actually what your reverse-assist system uses to annunciate how close you are getting to objects, by beeping. It is kinda like a Piezo tweeter.
I THINK I MAY have answered my own question..Midshift said:Okay, so im new to the Escape/Tribute/ Mariner..
I have an '05 Mariner "Luxory" (without rear sub/amp box), so is the layout of the Factory rear sub the same between the 3 companies vehicles and same generations? Ex 01-04 (?),05-07 (?), etc..
I may look into going shopping at a local "candy store" (Salvage lot) for that OEM look but of course put better quality products on/in it..
I will be replacing my speakers and the Ford 6-Disc cd changer but would like the sub/amp assembly, which is why I ask what years models will fit (with new panel) in my 05
Can i power new amp off factory amp?In Mazda-speak, they called it the "Audiophile" system, which was a friggin' joke btw. I tolerated that lil' sub for about 2 days before I set off on my own audio install journey on this vehicle.
Anyway, the factory sub location looks like this..
And what you see below is a false-floor design in progress (this is a progress shot, the system is DONE), something you can do too with the 2007 model Escape. Older Escapes have the spare tire inside, but not this one. That means it is about 1000% easier to build a super-stealth high quality audio system in these modern versions.
