    Hi Guys, I had a 2005 Mustang V6 with shaker 500 audio until 2 weeks ago when a drunk girl destroyed it. Now I am looking for a used 2008+ mustang. I know some people may think I am dumb, but i really loved my shaker 500 and loved the feel the subs in the door provide. So, please advice on...

    Alright, I have been planning to do a system in my mustang for awhile now and i've just now gotten everything done to the car I wanted to do before starting this. I know a few things about car audio but I definitely am going to need lots of help. Right now I just want to make sure everything I...

    Hey, I have the 2013 V6 Premium mustang and have a question about the SYNC/Shaker system in the car. I know it's probably dumb, but after searching I can't find the answer so I do want to apologize if this is a dupe thread. When using SiriusXM radio, occasionally the title or the artist text...

    Love the Shaker 1000 system on my 2005 Mustang but can't live without some kind of music besides AM/FM/CD. Any ideas? Tried some FM Modulator gear but it was all fuzzzzzz. Any proven kits or ideas? Thanks!

    I have a 2005 GT with an S-trim Vortech V2 supercharger. I have gotten a killer deal on a brand new CDC shaker kit. Now, I have to put the two together. From what I've read, there are two issues. The first is to make the shaker's "shroud" fit around the throttle body. I understand that this is...

    Hey guys- I recently purchased a 2005 V6 Mustang & I came across an issue with the Shaker audio system. I inserted a CD by pressing "Load", but it wouldn't play. Now when I try to eject the CD, the message "CD Error" appears. This also occurs even if I attempt to play the CD again. Has anyone...

    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

    My Shaker 500 CD player has malfunctioned just like many others having the same problem. My mustang is a 2005 and I have a friend who is going to give me his shaker 500 out of his 2007. What I am wanting to know is, do these stereos plug up the same since they are 2 years apart? and if so, do i...

    I'm searching for an adequate replacement for the Shaker500 door woofer. The replacement must meet certain criteria. 1. Fits in the existing enclosure. 2. The existing grill must be used, with NO protrusion or expansion rings. 3. Resistance must be 2 ohms. (Or 4 Ohms but DVC) 4. I can...

    I've got a 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis with the 5.0 Windsor. My plan is to take the engine out of the Marquis and put it in my 1966 Mustang (currently has a carbureted 302 from a Granada), making the Mustang fuel-injected. Because the 5.0 in the Marquis is rather power-void, I will be doing a...

    So I just swapped out the 5x7s on my car to some nice Infinity 6x8s and I'm very pleased with the results. Now for my question What options do we have when it comes to the Shaker 500 Door Subwoofers? I haven't seen much on people swapping those out and I was wondering if anyone had done...

    I've seen all the shaker systems hook into what looks like the stock airbox and air intake, which makes sense so the air can flow directly into the intake system... I was thinking of getting a shaker system, seems a good addition to an intake system that isn't ready for any forced induction yet...

    Greetings! I just joined the Mustang-owners club with a mint 2005 GT convertible (always wanted a vert!). The car is in great shape and has the optional Shaker unit in the trunk. The problem is: the Shaker blocks the trunk floor so I cannot get to the spare tire. Looks like I have to unbolt...

    I wanna add a new amp and 2 subs to my Shaker 500 without putting in a new head unit. I heard I need some type of wiring harness and a line output converter? What is needed to keep the stock head unit? Links to products would be awesome. If you could lend some help on this topic, even if it...

    I see a few people have trimmed down the plastic engine cover. Any good links on this? What is it and where do you get the weather striping you use once you trim it down for the finished look.

    Is the shaker hood really worth it?

    First post here, thanks for having me. Just bought a 2007 Convertible with the Shaker 500 (out of warranty, of course). Found out that the AUX IN and radio button backlighting doesn't work, and a search of this forum found multiple posts about replacement radios needing to reprogrammed by a...

    Whats up all, just got a 2005 mustang GT last week and been having lots of fun with it. Just signed up on the forums here, I have received a lot of great information to help me change the head unit and other aspects of the car audio. I was hoping someone would be able to give me...
