EXPE15 is starting off with a positive reputation.

I just purchased a 2015 Expedition XLT and am trying to get some thoughts on stereo upgrades. I can speak from experience on other 2013+ models and in my humble opinion the Stereo system whether SONY or NON SONY is reasonably decent.

I realize everyone is going to have their thoughts but wanted to get some thoughts from owners with some reasonable amount of time under the belt...or odometer as it were.

From my previous and current Taurus models I believe that although the 2013+ models are basically NON UPGRADABLE due to the head unit controlling more than audio itself. Although not my first choice in design I am over it. With that over with I have concluded again in my opinion the stereo system itself is reasonable could it use better AMP and SUB? Of Course!! With that said for my first step in stereo upgrades I started with the speakers. Even went so far as to add a set of rear deck outboards in my 2013 SEL NON SONY. I tapped the feed into the rear door power supply and worked great.

For my 2014 SHO WITH SONY. I went with Kenwood three way in the doors, Kicker 6X9 SUBS in the rear deck and Kicker 3.5 for the center rear AND Front. Kicker AMP to supply the 6X9 rear deck and the factory AMP to supply the doors and center If I remember correctly.

Question is should I go all out or do you think I can get away with starting on the speakers. The quote I have is around $1500 ish for Kicker four channel AMP which would run the doors and the OEM AMP for the rear subs.

Any thoughts before I get too crazy? Personally they have a Kicker low profile SUB under seat that could run and I have used that type before. I used the Kenwood model but same concept.

My stereo listening style....classic rock, 80's some modern day stuff but mostly 80's. I am not looking to rattle the windows but want a good clear sound. Most of my music is on USB and was copied from a clear base source. I have a few songs that I use to test the system, some highs and some deep BASS Songs. so a good testing point.
