96 Ford Explorer Premium Audio System Advice
I have a 96 Ford Explorer (Eddie Bauer Edition) with a premium audio system.
My question is...can I use the factory amp and subwoofer with my carputer? I called Circuit City and they said the Eddie Bauer Edition doesn't have a wire harness for that system to replace the head unit. They said you have to bypass the factory amp and subwoofer. Is there any way to hardwire it so I can keep the factory stuff in?
I'm planning on taking out my head unit completely, the radio, and all other sound will come from the computer.
Anybody had any experience with this or anything?
hard wiring ford factory premium amp
i have a 95 ford probe gt with the premium sound system we all know factory doesnt have many options for cd player. so if you want to switch the cd player to after market but dont wanna by pass the factory amp all you have to do is cut the power and remote wire for the factory amp:
power wire/ 12 volt +: Light Green w/t Red Stripe
remote/ amp turn on wire: Light Green w/t White Stripe
wire the power wire to the power wire of the deck which should b red, and wire the remote wire to the blue remote wire on deck. if you have 2 blue wires one is for power attenna and should have a white line on it you want the solid blue wire. solder for good connection. this should work it worked for my car and am impressed with the way it sounds. if you have a problem or question reply. hope this has been some helpful info.
