2011 Ford Mustang GT: Bass, not Big Berthas

February 16, 2012

As you probably know by now, our Mustang GT has the optional 1,000-watt Shaker audio upgrade that includes a massive double subwoofer box in the trunk. It takes up a fair amount of trunk space, and effectively limits the width of the trunk by about 14 inches.

For the golfers out there, the Shaker means that you can't just plop your bag in in a space-efficient, straight width-wise fashion as the longer clubs won't clear the boom box. Although I could've just angled the bag in, I wanted to illustrate the point.

And if that Shaker option added to the listening experience, the compromised cargo space might be worth it for some folks. But we're not too impressed with the system as we've noted a few times...
