Mach 460 install question

Hello, my 02 Gt coupe has the stock base model sound system. The one with no tweeter speakers by the mirror. I was wondering it a used Mach 460 system would just plug in without any cutting and splicing? I figure all the mustangs would have the same wiring for each car. More cost efficient to produce one harness with a few unused 460 plugs than to make several wiring harnesses and installing the correct harness for the speakers at the factory. Thank you!

Im sure it could possibly but youd have to get all the wiring for the tweeters and the 460 head unit. Honestly id get some 3 way speekers and a new headunit. It will sound just the same, if not better then factory speakers. If you do get a headunit id suggest going through crutchfield. They supply all they connectors to clip right into the factory harness and you wire onto the new harness to the stereo. They also provide the mounting hardware If you spend more than $100 on a headunit. On my v6 I put a Kenwood $119 headunit paired with the Kenwood 3-way and I spent under $200 for the whole set up. Its simple to do the headunit but the speakers are alittle more challenging since you have to remove the rear deck lid and the door panels. It took me 2hrs to install the system and its nice. If you plan on going that route i can help explain it more on how to install it. I honestly like my set-up more than my gt with the mach 460 factory speakers. Hope you find what you are lookin for with your car!

Agree with the above. Your time and money will be much better spent on aftermarket stuff. And pretty sure your car isn't pre-wired for it anyway, so would not be a plug n' play operation.
