NOTE: i posted this in wiring section and got absolutely no responce. It was a little disapointing so i decided to try to re-post in a forum with a little more traffic.
Hey i just bought a 2001 mercury lesabre today for 10 grand. And let me tell you the 24 valve engine has some balls for a mercury.
well anyways i was planning on putting in a new system. It has a Mach audio system, which is simply the most impressive "stock" systems i have seen to date. My existing equipment from my last car include and Alpine 9013. 2xPioneer 5way 6x9s. And 2xInfinity perfect 6 and 1/2. Question one if i was to swap out the head unit would there be some typ of mounting kit that will allow me to fit and standard din an a half stereo in the very strange cicular console.
Question two. The dealer was telling me that the mach system has several small amplifiers in the system. I did not ask him to elborate but i take that to mean there is an small amplifier in the back to power the rear speakers. If there is will i be able to use the preamp signal going into these and steal them for some aftermaket woofers. If not does anyone know if the stock mach system has any pre-amp out puts, as i have hear that speaker level amps have poor quality. If at all possible i think i would like to leave the stock deck in until i get the money to pop a TV in the dash.
Question three. Is there anywhere i could get a hold of wiring diagrams for a 2001 mercury lesable as i am an electronics engineering student i would not really have that many questions for you guys if i could get a hold on one of them. I tried looking around the mercury website and found absolutely no help there.
Thanks for any help you can offer me!
