Location of factory Amps, 1994 Mustang

I have a 1994 mustang convt 3.8l. I am trying to bypass the amps in my car for a new sound system. I have found an amp under my dash but I have been hearing that there is a second amp somewhere in the car. Is this true? Where is it? If there is a second amp then what does it power?

I believe the GT has an amp under the dash and 2 subs in the back, while the 3.8 has only the factory radio amp and no subs... No extra amps that i know of.

No, if you'v egot the MACH 460 option or better, it's the same system as the GT. Beginning in 1999(?)

I had the mach in mine -but I junked it (actually I sold it on e-bay)

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

they didn't have that option in 1994-95. i believe stangfreak has the standard audio system

yeah factory installed.

Its even mentioned in the users manual.


I like the way the Mach 460 sounds, but the factory speakers are crap. The highs are really awsome, but it depends on the radio.


I have a Old school Jensen and I can turn the radio up to 70(it goes to 100) and I can stand outside of the car, and its nice and loud.

Im gonna change factory speakers, add a solo barraks 12" sub and a MTX 1000 watt amp and thats it.
