After reading all the Cobra/SVT threads I decided not to take a chance on the new 03 Cobra and because I really like the current styling I upgraded the '99 topless V6 to a 2002 topless V8. I had to have Torch Red, leather, w/Mach 1000. I had never seen or heard the 1000 but figured it must be that much better. The Springfield dealer had to get the car from Maryland and I bought it unseen. I had to go back the next day (9 April) and then I saw the trunk. :??: There's no getting golf clubs in it now. There are two huge speakers on either side of this Bass pounding machine and they are protected by cages. Now for those who have bought the Mach 1000: I feel I'm not hearing the mid-range anymore. It sounds good only if cranked up very loud.....but not as good as I hoped. Perhaps a graphic equalizer can be added and it could be in the trunk for all I care. Set it and forget it. Nevertheless: Love this Stang so much more!!
