2010 Mustang Audio Question

I have a 2010 premium v6 mustang. And I want to get a sub and amp installed in my car. My question is will I have to get a new head unit? I'm also on about a $600 budget. I think if it's too much I'll just get a new spoiler.

I haven't done any audio upgrades on my car but from what I've read here it sounds like it's all or nothing when you upgrade the factory stereo. I'd go with the spoiler for now or save for a complete audio overhaul.

No you do not have to buy a new head unit! U need a line out converter. You splice your rear deck speaker wire and have it run to the converter. Then you plug rca into the opposite side of the converter. I'm running a spl show 15" sub with 4000 watts runnin to it.

How would you control the subs though? There is no sub setting on my current head unit

Do you think I could get subs and amp installed for under 500? Do I even need an amp?

Yes you need an amp. Go to best buy and get a quote. As much as i hate going thru big companies they will be the cheapest
