2012 Mustang aftermarket stereo install..but not in dash need help.

Hi all

I do not want to change the look of my dash at all. I do not like the install kits for our cars or the $400 price tag. I have an awesome Pioneer deck for my previous car worth about $600+ new.

I am thinking of installing it under the passenger dash with a custom mount I will make and it will be slightly out of sight.

I have a 12" sub and 4 Alpine 6x8 type R's and a 4 channel amp and a mono block.

I have installed many stereos and amps over the years so I know a bit about installs and the work involved.

I am just wondering if anyone has done something similar and has some tips for me? I would still like my factory radio to light up and the display to work. But the actual music and speaker handling would be done by the aftermarket deck hidden slightly.

Any help would be appreciated.

I just put 2 12" Fosgate subs and 6 1/2 composites in mine and ran them all off the stock deck. I didn't want to change the dash either, especially wasting money on the faceplate (bad reviews anyway). I used a line reducer (high to low input) and my system thumps!! Fyi, there is no acc wire in the stock harness, only a constant hot. You have to tap into the fuse box to get accesory power. Hope this helps.
