Any audio heads out there? Anybody going with aftermarket sound system? Wanted to give the B & O sound system a shot but didn’t want the rest of the luxury package. Figured Ill just get aftermarket mids/tweeters installed with a good 4 channel amp at my local audio store. Probably will install a couple shallow mount subwoofers in a stealth box shortly after that as well depending on the space and configuration of the back seat once I get eyes on it.

Not an audio head myself, but I have never known an audio head to be happy about any factory system. I'm sure there will be a lot of people putting in new systems whether they got the luxury package or not.

I wonder if the underseat storage will end up fitted with subs. The extreme guys will probably do a back seat delete and have a massive system in the entire rear.

We purchased the luxury package on the Lariat for the Adaptive Cruise control option. We got the B&O sound system with the luxury package, but I'm not sure I'll keep them in the long term. I figure I'll let the warranty run out on it and then upgrade it to a nice set of Kenwoods or Alpine. I don't get too complicated with my sub woofers (typically under seats only). I don't care if the car next to me can hear what im playing. But I am curious about the quality of the B&O's. I'll keep you posted when it arrives.

Long as the speakers don't rattle (as I seen on some F150's, I'll be happy enough with the B&O system. I like decent sounds, but I don't need anything early shattering. I have a Malibu with the upgraded Pioneer system (factory) and it sounds very nice to me.

I’m for sure doing an upgrade. Factory speakers suck. I’m going to probably do another Rockford setup like I did in my focus. (5x7 2-ways in the doors, etc) and a enclosed powered subwoofer. Looks like a 8” or 10” might fit under the back seat.

I'm fairly certain the B&O system in the lariat luxury will be very nice. I've always felt that the aftermarket systems are more compromising.

I can tell you that I have heard that the B & O system on the volvos are supposed to be exceptional. That is not to say that they will use the same equipment on the maverick. I have the harmon kardon factory system on my volvo - it is very very good.

If you are going to upgrade anyway, why would you spend the money on the B&O system?
Wanted adaptive cruise and lane keep. I may keep it if it's good enough. I've never upgraded audio in a car thought it be fun to try. I will try to get a rear view with homelink and auto dimming for sure.

There's a small amount of room behind the rear seat where the jack kit is located according to the Sandy Munro video.

I have the 2.0T and will be taking out the storage compartments under the back seat and putting a sub enclosure under that. The amp racks will go behind the the back seat.
