Will the Shaker 1000 Sub/Amp hook up to the Shaker 500 in the 2008 Model? Is there a plug in the trunk?

Definitely Post replies you get from everyone. I'd love to answer because I use to have the Shaker 500, but I eventually changed out everything. A shop should be able to answer that question for you, but I do remember the Techs had a pain in the @$$ time when they were trying to wire around the Shaker 500 front sub Amps. They told me back then that it would be easier changing out everything but I was stubborn in the beginning.

I found a Shaker 1000 out of a junkyard and was wondering if I'd buy it, would it fit my Shaker 500.

"Recon" may be right about the Headache. I don't know the Details, but Ford did create a pain in the @$$ setup with their Stereo systems.

I figured the Shaker was a lot easier to work with then the Mach Audio. Guess I was wrong lol

One of my local audio shops did the swap in a 3V. They said, long story short, most of the interior has to come out; along with you butchering the wiring harnesses.
I wanted the shaker 1000 in my Roush, but not enough to justify the hassle and expense.

Pick your poison.

You're far better off just getting a sub of your choosing, one of the boxes that are designed for our trunk, and a suitable amp for your sub. Then you can just tap a rear speaker wire and use a line level converter. Easier and better quality than the Shaker stuff. Also cheaper generally (though maybe not cheaper than a junkyard find).
