MACH stereo in Ford Explorer
I've got a 1998 Ford Explorer with a MACH stereo system (it's not the same one that they put in the new Mustangs). While the guy at the Ford dealership told me that this was a "premium" sound system, I beg to differ.
Anyway, that aside, I will say that this factory stereo is a bit better than most I've heard, and, as a result of that and a general lack of funds, I'm going to keep it if at all possible.
With that said, I was wondering what my best option for sending the audio signal from the sound card to the speakers would be.
I've got a Panasonic cassette adapter, and it sounds okay from the tests I've done so far.
I've also done a little research on FM modulators. A guy at Radio Shack told me that the tape adapter would provide much better sound quality than the FM modulator that RS offers for something like 30 bucks. Another guy at a local car stereo store told me that an FM modulator that they sell for 80 bucks would offer slightly better quality than the tape adapter I already have.
I was wondering if there was any way to patch the audio signal from the sound card into the factory-installed 6-disc changer that I have in the console between the two front seats.
Any info or opinions on this topic are greatly appreciated.
