The 2004 4.0 should be exactly the same as the 2009 4.0 right? I don't see why Ford would have changed things but I suppose the plug length/depth could be different.
An article I found said the...

I hooked up some 8 inch subs behind my driver seat.
Would like to replace the entire stock system at some point, just waiting on money which means it may be a while, New babies are expensive!!

Re: what will sound deeper and aggressive

I could argue the point either way, you would have to meet them to understand :)
