Car audio question

qtipp73qtipp73 Posts: 907 ✭✭✭✭✭
I have a ten speaker system in my lincoln. if I were to get a touch screen aftermarket deck would I lose any functionality in any of the speakers? I know most decks are only set to hook up four speakers. My system has two tweeters in the front also.

    You shouldn't, the aftermarket wire harness should deal with that..

    You won't even use the channel outputs of the new deck. Only the pre-amp, RCA plugs which will send signal to your current aplifiers.
    Since your car has like 10- speakers I'm sure it has an amp prob behind the seat. So the new deck will JUST send it signal for it to keep doing what it's been doing.

    You'll need a harness ($15) and likely a module to interface w the current amp (~$60-75)

    Iono bruh...everytime I installed an aftermarket, the built in amp always made the speakers sound better.

    I just put a pioneer avh2400 in my 04 gp gtp. I got 8 speakers w/ 2 tweeters and they sound WAAAAYYY better than they ever could with the factory deck. Best deck ive ever bought.

    I lost all chimes and the date on my driver info center cause I.chose the cheap $30 harness instead of the $80 gm module that would have kept them. Fuck gm...them niggas want every$$.

    Yo just go to crutchfield.com and all your answers are there. Type in the make, model and trim of your car and they'll show you parts that only work for your car. And if you still have questions, the customer service is the best I ever dealt with

    Car manufacturers have been trying to lock out aftermarket stereos since the late 90's. Ford made the first serious push in the Taurus, everyone else has followed suit.

    you know sometimes you luck out. and aint gotta replace the stock speakers...
    but if them shits say infinity or bose on them... you aint ever getting the original sound back.

    thanks for the info. im hoping i wouldnt lose any sound wuality since they arent bose level speakers. its an upgraded system but not the top level thx system lincoln uses. its an 180 watt audiophile unit with 6 disc changer in it. I want to get a touch screen system but only if i can keep all the other chimes and shit too.

    I have the audiophile system in my 06 ford. You need to make you buy a replacement interface so you keep the amps power with your new radio. If not then you'll just have stock power

    99% of factory systems sounds like ass. Not caring if you got the lil "high end" shit the manufacturer offers, it still sounds like ass.

    Especially Bose.

    I disagree. In my old altima it came with the bose system and 6 cd changer. I replaced all the components and amped them up with jbls. I put 2 jbl 12s in too. Shit sounded glorious lol. Bose is overrated and overpriced

    Anyone who speaks negatively on Bose automatically gets a co-sign from me.

    Bose is overrated. Jbl harmon polk and most after market brands are better u just paying 10 times for the name. I built my surround sound home theatre piece by piece with yamaha and polk saved a g and its sounds way better bose is like the iPhone lol

    depends on brand, placement in the car, and your overall setup

    I've seen a cat fill his trunk with 2 6x9s and 6 8" sub woofers inside of a custom box

    ran an ol school alpine head unit and amp.......10 gauge speaker wire, the whole deal

    and he did it the hard way before Crutchfield starting making wiring harnesses more available online


    sound was amazing

    silly nigga only ran one battery tho...........so his lights were dimming when he cranked his music up haha

    it could happen, but physically speaking the same setups, type of boxes, and recommended power for each speaker, the 12's will output more sound.

    Just found out my car has built in jacks for subs and amps once I decide to get them. If any of you niggaz got the beats audio system in your car the speaker case in the back has that shit all ready to go without tapping into the radio. All I need is the lock pick so I can have video in motion.
