    Posting for my son: I have a kicker amp and sub I want to install in the trunk of a 2013 mustang (shaker 500) my question is, using a line converter from the rear 5x7's to convert to a low level input for my amp, will the signal be greatly affected by the head units decreasing bass levels to...

    I have the shaker 500 system in my car and my door speakers rattle especially when the volume is up. Does anyone have a remedy to this situation?

    Hi, Recently my Shaker500 audio system stopped working. To start, the system is completely stock. I noticed a few months ago when I would turn on/off the radio or change stations the passenger door sub would make a loud pop sound. Also if I ran the radio (at fairly low volume) for long enough I...

    Pioneer Head Unit Guidance Needed 2009 GT Hey guys, I can't seem to find a thread addressing this specific circumstance but if there is already I apologize. After thinking about it for months & doing a lot of research I decided to purchased the Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX from Amazon. I've installed...

    My 2006 GT's Shaker 500 audio has an AUX button but no jack. It looks like about $100 to install an external jack. I'd rather spend a little more for a new head unit with Bluetooth and (hopefully) better sound. Does anyone have experience installing a single-DIN unit from Crutchfield using...

    I wanted to put a newer Shaker 500/ 1000 in my 87 Mustang. I was wondering if anyone knows if it will fit and work without a lot of modification. Any help would be great and thanks.

    I have an aftermarket head unit in my car. The previous owner installed it, but didn't have the factory subwoofers hooked up. I'm trying to use the factory shaker 500 door subs and factory shaker 500 amps with this aftermarket head unit. I did a bit of searching, and have some to one...

    Hi everyone! First time here, first time Mustang owner (and I love my Sunny-2008 GT convertible!). Today, at 65045 miles, I finally had to replace the original battery. After replacing the battery with a new one, my Sirius radio is now acting completely funky. It's on a Shaker stereo, and...

    I just finally finished up the install of the Alpine Perfect Fit system after a week long process. This consist of the dask kit which was a joint venture between Alpine and Scosche as well as the Alpine INE-Z928HD. The first true 8" aftermarket head unit. Alpine Perfect FIT for Ford Mustang...

    Hi. I heard some rumors that if I were to pull out my stereo, I'd find a 3.5mm audio jack in the back. Is this true? If not, how can I get a jack like this hooked up to my shaker 500? Cheaper is better. Thanks

    First off I have the stock Shaker 500 sound system with no aftermarket modifications nor do I plan to do any. When I hit the power button on the head unit to turn it on there is a screeching/whining noise emanating from the speakers/subs. It isn't always from the same speakers/subs. The noise...

    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...

    Proud new owner here of a 2008 Mustang GT Coupe. Not so proud of the factory Shaker 500 sound. Not looking to win any contests, but the sound from the factory system in my wife's 2007 Camry SE is head and shoulders better. I've done a ton of reading here and other places, and a ton of...

    Has anyone replaced the shaker head unit? I am considering swapping it out for an aftermarket one but want to keep the stock harness. I have never replaced a radio before and am completely in the dark as to what to look for.

    Hey all I just have a question about the Shelby/kicker woofers. Has anyone heard these installed? is there more rattling in the door than with the stock subs.. Im looking for more bass but I dont want it to sound terrible. I have kicker KS component speakers, and I am looking to replace the door...

    So, I just bought a used Mustang. It has the Shaker 500 System in it, and I'm pretty darn good with sound systems and radios etc. I do work for the local shops when I'm needed. I have a fairly broad background it stereo's, and I've never run into anything like this. My car, even with a BRAND...

    I've got a 2008 GT with the base radio (no changer, no sub woofers in the doors) and I'm wondering if the wiring for the door sub woofers, etc. is already in place and I can just add components to install a Shaker 500 radio. I know lots of people don't think much of that radio, but I don't...
