Default Speaker Upgrade
Ok, just about ready to start my speaker and amp upgrade to the raptor and I'm open to a few suggestions.

I'm pretty much not looking for the loudest system, but definitely looking for the cleanest. I don't like to mix and match too many different brands, so it's pretty much going to be only a few brands.

On the front end I'm going to use Focal UtopiaBe 165W-RC.
In the rear in using the Focal PC 130F.

I'm going to drive those speakers with a Mosconi D2 100.4

I do plan on removing the current sub probably build a custom enclosure for a 10" sub. I have yet to see which one. I am leaning towards the Focal E25 but I hear the JL 10W7AE is a phenomenal sub. I will power the sub with the Mosconi D2 500.1.

I plan in using the Mosconi DSP 4to6 processor.

All the obvious stuff will be done such as sound mat, new wire to speakers etc.

Does anyone know of a Optima battery for the raptor? I checked their website and they listed nothing that is compatible with a 2017 F150.

If anyone is open to giving a few sub suggestions I am open to it.

Utopia tweeter won't fit and 100.4 would be best just with front components and a little pico for rear.

If you are spending that kind of money I would work with Noah from The Car Stereo Company who is a member.

He is in the process of building me a killer system that u might want to take a look into to.

I don't plan on using the stock location for the tweeters, I will modify the pillar for this.

As for the power of the amp, it will be plenty for this setup. The amp will give me 105 watts RMS per channel with the speakers running at 80 & 60 watts RMS. This should not cause any issues especially with clean power running back there.

im glad you 2 got in touch with each other. ed, dont forget the processor. thats going to be a huge part in the sound quality. also, where do you plan on putting the sub? both the focal and the jl audio wont fit.

I will be done installing my system in the next couple week so you can check it out if you want. Noah builds custom boxes and is also a focal and mosconi dealer.

Are you doing the install yourself or local shop?

Noah, I'm going to go with the Mosconi 4to6. As for the sub I'm going to have to go with a custom enclosure under the back seat. Hopefully it can fit under the single rear seat.

Not enough depth for those subs. Take a look at audiomobile evo 2410. U only have 6" to work with.

I would recommend the PAC audio piece for integration. I used it for mine and provides a totally flat signal with full integration into all factory functions.

I ended up using the JL 10 in a ported enclosure behind the seat and its one of the cleanest sounding builds I've heard.

Good luck!
