Stereo Replacement Help

Hello All,

I have read the article on replacing 2001-2004 Mach Head setup. I wanted to know, will it make a difference if I use 52W X 4 versus 50W X 4 or a 40W X 4. I am going to keep the Mach speaker setup but I need to replace the Head unit. I was looking at this one Sony - Xplod 52W x 4 In-Dash CD Deck - CDX-GT130. I know we use the Double din setup, but where can I find the bottom piece that will fill up the remainder of the hole left by the Mach?

Re: Stereo Replacement Help

Those speakers will not matter. Which everones you'd like.

Go to Best Buy or a local car audio store and they should have the part in stock.

Sorry I'm short in reply but I have to get to class.

Re: Stereo Replacement Help

You shouldn't have any trouble running a head unit with any of those wattages. I think that is what osiris meant haha

Re: Stereo Replacement Help

Yeah that's what I meant. Any headunit you use will be fine with the rest of the Mach audio system. Some people do experience audio troubles, but as long as you're not blasting stock speakers and they are working to begin with you should be okay.

The kit should be something like Metra Part# 99-5520. You can go to Metra Electronics and check the correct part number for your car. I forget the exact part number off the top of my head.

I just want to be sure of something. If I use the Mach wiring harness, the aftermarket stereo should would work with the Mach speakers and factory subs right?

Re: Stereo Replacement Help

I assume you are worried about the aftermarket stereo being compatible with the Mach speakers? But yes the Mach harness (for Mach systems) will allow factory integration with aftermarket head units.

The subs should still work, but I don't want to be 100% sure. The subs I think came one Mach 1000 systems and needs a slightly different harness which requires RCAs. That is the audio out plugs into the radio with the RCA outputs. The other end of the harness is the regular factory integration.

I have a Mach 460 system so the RCA's wont apply right? You mentioned something earlier about blasting speakers? I do listen to my stereo at max volume sometimes, is that going to be a problem with a new head unit.

Re: Stereo Replacement Help

Yeah I don't think the RCAs will be needed. The only thing I am not 100% on is the subs, but I don't think the 460 included subwoofers? Don't hold me to it though.

As for blasting the the volume, if you still have OEM speakers then I will definitely say go ahead and get new speakers. The chances of the OEM speakers clipping and blowing have increased like 50 fold (not an actual statistic). The new HU won't be so much the problem, as it is contributing to the problem.
