haha i hate my car. So if anyone has read a couple of my posts, pretty much the car doesnt accept anything. I can't use a dash kit because i have electronic controls and not knobs so i cant put in a new head unit. So my solution to that was keeping the factory head unit and using an LC6 or some other line output converter. The only problem is that now, i just learned that since i have the upgraded mach audio system, that it doesnt have "a full range of sound." so my new questions are:
What does that mean it doesnt have a full range of sound? Like i understand it doesnt hit the extreme his or exterme lows, but mechanically what does that mean, like is it in the deck, the deck doesnt send them....and can i just bypass that?
Any ideas on how to get a system in this god forsaken car...haha
haha, thanks i know...too bad i didnt know that before i bought my arsenals and my ed nine.1
im thinking about just leaving the stock system and then installing my own system around the stock. like installing speakers in the doors where there is nothing....how hard is that to do? make your own door insterts for speakers?
I think a solution would be to custom mount your headunit somewhere. Maybe your glove compartment. You would lose the space but it will be a fun fiberglass project. Another pro to this would be if someone looked in your vehicle all they would see is the stock stuff.
Do you have a pic of your dash? There has to be somewhere to mount it. Will require extra work though. And Yea it's up to you but you seem to hate your car anyways so yea take some time and sketch up some plans. Then take a sawzall to the metal and mount you some nice components. If you take your time you can make it look factory.
Try this i had to do it w/ my system b/c polo told me the BOSE have a cutoff freq. too so that it doesnt damage the stock speakrs. My blocker was more like a hp/lp filter. So when i hookd up the LOC it dint cut off any freq. b/ckuz i got a sweep that played 20hz-60hz and it all played. So aparently the blocker was bypassed.
Jordan can you explain that again, that didnt really make any sence to me, whats a blocker? and a hp/lp filter? and a sweep? sorry i dont understand those four terms... and ill try to get a dash pic up
look mike get a high output alternator ford had alot of problems wiht electrical systems for exam[ple ford 1998 f-150 most ofthem have the problem that the power wire its to thin and sometimes its difficult to start the car, get ahight output alternaor, or do the big tree, maybe u voltage drops low as hell that makes u car electrical system not to receive enough power to keep up, plus get a jl audio clean sweep and put it in your system witout replacing your in dash radio, if u want to replace ur radio u have to go to ebay or crutchfield and order a taurus/sable adapter that will cost u 50-100 bucks
thanks lil rob, but unfortunatly that doesnt fit my car because if you look on the dash kit that you sent over it has the knobs for controls. Those knobs are not on my dash if you look in my pictures...in place i have the electronic controls for my airconditioning. Unfortunatly, this makes it so i can not put in a dash kit. Thanks anyway though it was a good effort.
well kkeep lookin thats why people made the internet, go to ebay, cardomain crutchfield or someting like that if u cant fingd it u will need to add extra receiver somewhere else or u can buy a vdv player the ones u can hide and buy a rf modulator so u can pass the audio signal tru your original thing, but u can buy the jl clean sweep that will be the best for you it has a n extra set of inputs auxiliary so u can connect an extra cd changer or a cd player receiver
mike.....I have a mercury sable with the roatary knobs. I am not 100% sure but U might be able to go to the junk yard or something and pick up the radio with the rotarty knobs and then buy the install kit and install them......it wont be electronic controls but it might work. im not 100% sure but I dont really see too much of a reason that it wouldnt.
right now my idea is to actually run a completely seperate system, and leave the dash in how it is...not sure where the head unit is going to go yet.... but since the rear speakers of the car are behind the seats, i think what im goign to do is cut holes for speakers, and the front speakers there is room for a 5 1/4 speakers i think, i donno yet but im looking into it, but i think thats what im going to do, and that way i can have both...haha
