Monitor effecting Stereo

Hello all,

My setup for a carputer in my 2000 mustang was as follows: remove the CD player from the bottom DIN slot, lower the radio to that DIN slot and install a flip out monitor in the DIN where the radio came from. After completing the installation of the flip out monitor, I tested all my electronics and realized that all had gone flawlessly, except for the speaker volume. The volume has to be raised nearly all the way to even hear a peep.

I reattahed my CD-player a few moments later, and the speaker volume does return to normal volume levels. However, since there are no further available DIN slots for the Cd-player in the bezel, what should I do to correct the volume problem? Also, is this stock Cd-player required to be attached with the stock radio for normal volume functionality?

Thank you all in advance for your replies. Also, I am extremely excited about posting pics of my stang. I only hope I have done justice to my beast. : )

I thank you for your reply. I have attached a picture of the head unit (which is a Ford Mach 460 stereo system) which was taken before the install of my flip out monitor.

Re: Monitor effecting Stereo

The mach 460 system has 1 factory front amp and 2 factory rear amps. If, in your wiring, you are sending an amped signal to these amps, it will mess with your sound and you will not be able to control the loudness. If this is the case, you will need the 460 wiring harness.

Re: Monitor effecting Stereo

In my wiring, after the removal of the Cd-player, the wiring harness (from the Cd-Player) is just left not plugged into anything. So I will assume that some of the amps may not be receiving power at all. If this is the case, should I connect the wires that were plugged into the CD-player to the wires going into the radio? Or is there any other way to solve this?


I should also mention, two of the Cd-player wires were used for Power and Ground, and one wire from the radio was used for ignition power.

I thank you for all the time you have spent helping resolve this issue.

Re: Monitor effecting Stereo

Hm, I don't have any experience working with the seperate unit 460's. The only thing I can think is that somewhere in the wiring...connecting the cd player somehow completes a circuit that is somehow related to the volume. I really dunno..you have me stumped.

Smile Re: Monitor effecting Stereo

I just want to thank you for all your help. I continued to do research on this issue and I have the following information concluded. I will use an Audiovox FM modulator to connect my carputer's audio-out to my car's stock sound system. I will then attempt to extend the wires of my stock cd-player and either place it under my seat, put it in my trunk, or simply store it behind the bezel somewhere.

Again, I thank you for all the time you spent helping me.
