Re: Need help asap (stereo question)
****can the entire mach460 garbage setup and opt for components all around. The mach460 is a 9v setup, whereas your new deck is a 12v. Sure it will work, but it will make the system way too sensitive towards the standard deck, to where the volume level 5 is unbearably loud.
Honestly id get the ford to aftermarket power harness so your power and everything is pretty much plug and play (you just have to wire up the converter harness into the Alpine's harness) and then go to town on rewiring the rest of the speakers. Youll be glad in the end, i had the Mach460 in my 02 GT and went to a CDA-987X, Alpine components up front and Alpine 5x8/5x7 triaxials out back (still in the mach decklid though, you can also put components in there as well) and the entire setup sounded light years better than the Mach460.
