Bought her with this tear in the headliner. I don't think I want to replace it until I have a need to pull the windshield  and the rear window. I was thinking of making speaker boxes that would cover the hole.

I am open to other ideas though.

I have a set of 4x6's in the doors, a set of 6x9s in the package tray - both sets by Retrosound and sound great (used some spacers on the 6x9s though, so I didn't have to cut the sheet metal - my poor car had been through enough of that at that point -  whistling  ).  I also have a pair of MTX Terminator 10" subs and an MTX Sledgehammer amp that will be going under the package tray in a custom box with the amp mounted in between, firing into the seatback - possibly sealed-boxes, ported, or maybe a 3-chamber single-reflex bandpass-style box - I need to find out what best suits the subs before I go cuttin' any MDF.  

I'm thinking that since the MTX Thunderbox in my truck has a pair of relatively small sealed boxes, that should be just fine.  They're not Solobarics, though, so they'll probably take up a good chunk of the space under the package tray (non fold-down seat, of course) - I guess I'll be packin' 'em full of insulation, too.

My roll bar goes through the speaker holes in the package tray. I already had the 6x9 speakers so I cut 12- 1/4" slots for each speaker in the filler panel then covered that panel and the package tray with good quality speaker cloth. While not for the purist. They are out of the way as far as trunk space goes,and with no grills they are hidden on the inside
I'm looking at the California Cougar kick panels for the front

Now if we could see some Convertibles with rear speakers/amps, that'd be awesome!

Radio??? Who needs a radio!! Actually, someday I might install one but for now I just listen to the motor rumble. Never had a radio in it for 15 years now.

LOL, I took the two amps and pioneer system out and the boom box out of the trunk also. I put stock AM/FM back and the door speakers. I never listen to radio when in the Mustang. Took the burglar alarm off and also the radar detector. He had hacked the wiring to death. I replace the entire harness. The wet carpet in the trunk caused all kinds of surface rust.
Now in the garage I listen to the tunes. Can play 8 track, vinyl, CD, DVD, laser disc. Have lots of 70's music.

OK, so I actually had a few minutes to look a few things up shortly after I'd posted this.  I determined that sealed boxes with .75 cubic feet of enclosure each will work perfectly for the MTX subs I have - that's not all that big at all.  I also found an enclosure calculator and determined that I should be able to build a box that will tuck up under the package tray against the seatback, not come anywhere close to protruding into the trunk, and fit both subs along with a space in the middle for the amp to have plenty of airspace.  Shouldn't need to be all that heavy, either, since the enclosures are so small I could probably get away with 1/2" or maybe 9/16" MDF.

Now, I just need to find the time to make this happen.
