Mach1000 audio system

I'm looking at purchasing my first stang. I just checked out a stang with that audio system and my friend was saying that if I want to put a I double thin nav that I won't be able to took up that Mach system to an aftermarket deck? Please help

the mach system doesnt take kindly to aftermarket subs/speakers, a head unit with the proper connections should work. I would check with an audio shop or two as well as best buy just to make sure though, but from what I understand you can use an aftermarket head unit as long as you use the correct adaptors/wiring harnesses.

Okay, Another thing is my friend was also saying if i do a pully kit on the car that because it slows down the accessories that it will hurt the radio and maybe put more stress on my alternator because the mach 1000 requires a lot of power...is that possibly true? What are some good cheap power mods besides exahust and intake

underdrive pullies are pointless, its almost 200-300 bucks +install for 2-3 hp and more strain on the electrical system. Also for aux you just need an in line converter to go to RCA then that into aux, honestly though your probably better off getting a new headunit, you can keep the speakers just get a new headunit with aux, usb, bluetooth, etc.

True, The mach1000 is awesome best audio system I have herd. I will eventually get a in dash nav but I dont want it to effect the speaker system one bit.

if you do what most do, you can get the install kit(dash kit+harness) and plug the aftermarket radio into the stock harness, using stock speakers, the issue is once you do you WILL want better speakers, and then better amps, and soon you become a true audiophile.

If I used an aftermarket deck with all stock equipment it will sound just as good as stock right? Becuase I herd the mach 1000 doesn't like modifications lol

it will sound as good as it does currently, except that the headunit will be pushing better quality sound, so it will seem to be worse, its a condradiction i know, just trust me, you will start with a headunit and end with a system,

I just wanted to surprise my dad when he got home so i replaced his blown speakers, and from there i was like they arnt getting enough power, got a new headunit, and was like WHERES MY BASS, so i got him some shallow mounts, dropped about 600 on a vehicle that isnt even mine.

in dash nav is expensive man, just use a cellphone and keep the stock radio if you want to keep the stock look.
