Scosche connector in a 2000 Mustang with Mach 460

Sorry for the long title. lol So, we just went through a giant rewiring fiasco on my cars aftermarket HU because it was making noise that was driving me insane. We bought the reccomended wiring connector at the store, it didnt fit and I looked up the one that was on it before (Duh! lol) and it was FDK106, but a FDK10B woulda been the same. Anyone have this trouble?
Anyways, the one that hooks in to my speaker wires is made of such bad quality if I hit a bump it moves it just a smidge and I get static. Any ideas?
Thanks!

I don't have an answer for you but a question, what wiring harness do I need to install an aftermarket CD player with the Mach 460 in my 99 Cobra? I wanna remove the factory head unit with cassette and separate CD player below it.. I can't seem to get an answer for this year Mach setup, I guess the harness is different from 03's and up?

I am pretty sure you would need the same as I did, Brutal.
A wiring harness/connector like this 88-97 FD/MA PREM CONNECT
Which if your store doesn't have it can be subbed with the FDK106 and a Convertor for the amps, SPKR LEVEL CONV 80W
On the wiring harness you only use the power plug and the lil black one, it hooks in to the speaker wires.
I could be wrong, But I am pulling up the same info for your mach 460 that I got for mine. Hope this helps you some. Mine is aftermarket as well.

Alternator problem

I have a 99. When I installed an aftermarket hu, w/ a scosche slc-4 to connect to my Mach sound system, i started getting noise through the speakers after a few months. I was told that the diode in the alternator went out. I replaced the alternator and it fixed the problem.... for a few months. What is taking out the diode, and how can I fix it, before I waste another alternator?
