  1. 2014 GT Shaker1000 add on

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Alarms
    I'm looking to add an after market amp and sub to my shaker 1000 system. Can I tap into the power and remote wires going to the factory amp to avoid running wires from ignition and battery? If so does anyone have a wiring diagram to go off of?

    Install / upgrading 2007 GT with dual (962 & 342 watt) amplifiers using two 8ga kits? I have finally gathered together what I hope to be a near perfect upgrade to my 2007 Mustang GT's audio system. I have read other posts concerning wire gauge and its size necessity once you near 1500 watts...
  3. Anyone recently replace their Mach 460 system and still have the stock amps?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Alarms
    I purchased a 2003 mustang convertible a couple of months ago and it has the typical leaky roof. I've fixed that up but when I got the car it took me a while to notice there was no bass. I found the fuse under the steering wheel and replaced it. I got the bass I wanted and was perfectly fine...
  4. 1988 Mustang GT Stereo Aftermarket Replacement Notes

    5.0L Tech
    I decided to replace my 1988 "premium sound" cassette player. This version has 6 speakers: 2 dash, 2 door and 2 rear. The premium sound adds an amplifier and door speakers. Since the car is mostly stock I just wanted to unplug the old and plug in new so it could be reversed easily...
  5. 2006 Mustang Convertible Shaker 500 + 150 Subwoofer Project

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Alarms
    Shaker 500 + 150 Project I have a 2006 V6 Mustang Convertible with the Shaker 500 stereo system. Overall not a bad setup for a factory system, but it lacked deep bass, as the door ‘subwoofers’ didn’t handle frequencies below 80Hz very well. Being a convertible, and having limited funds, I...

    Hey guys, So I've asked for advice on my setup before but I just wanted to get some more opinions. Currently I have (waiting to be installed) one 12'' Alpine Type-E Single Voice and a ported box for it as well as an Alpine 150-watt amp. Will this setup be enough for the deep bass I am looking...

  11. 1999 Mustang Mach System - What to Upgrade?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Alarms
    I am currently deciding what to upgrade on my Mach system. Everything currently is stock, and I want more bass. Would it be more economical to replace the rear speakers? If so, can you recommend some? Or would it be best to add a small sub/amp combo? I don't want bass that is going to wake...

Is it possible to hook up a subwoofer to the factory amplifier. If so how can you do this, or would it be easier to buy a cheap amp from a...
  13. I need a wiring diagram for 2003 Mustang Convertible

    V6 Tech
    I need the audio wiring diagram for the rear amps... It's the mach stereo. I don't think it's the mach 1000 for the lack of 4 amps. I'm pretty sure it's the mach 460, I have two amps, but I need the diagram reguardless. I'm taping into it for a few changes. The rear subs are **** and the right...

  15. Are my amps blown? MACH 460 Front Mids/Subwoofer or Amps not working. Please say no.

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Alarms
    So, here's the deal. I bought a 2004 Mustang Convertible V6 Automatic last August. It's been very trusty thus far, and the head unit took a crap and died. It was a 6CD stock unit and the CD's would get jammed. So I bought a Pioneer FH-P8000BT at Christmas time. I tried to install it myself...
  16. Confused about amp watts!

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Alarms
    I've decided on a 12 in sub to put in my 2000, the sub puts out 1400 watts max power and 350 watts nominal power. Now, what confuses me is the amp wattage. I was looking at a 2 channel legacy amp that puts out 1600 watts when bridged but only 800 watts when it isn't bridged. So I was wondering...
