    Line output converter

    I have a 2004 mustang and am keeping the mach 460 head unit so I need the line output converter. I get how to wire it for the most part, the only thing I don't understand is it says "Connect the brown wires to ground only if there is no sound from the amplifier."

    What does that mean exactly?

    Re: Line output converter

    not sure exactly. ask Gbob2003. i believe he has an 05 or 04 and did the same thing. when i did mine in my civic i connected the brown which was my ground to the loc ground. so maybe try it. (i use these things called t clips. they are super easy to use when ur splicing into wires so u don't have to cut the wire it just snaps on. so if ur experimenting with ur wiring try those i guess.)

    Anyone? Pretty much the only thing holding me back right now is I have no clue what "connect the brown wires to ground only if there is no sound from the amplifier."

    Re: Line output converter

    connection is optional. if it works without them being grounded, then you're good to go.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: Line output converter

    I used one of these in a friends truck last night, well just ran his wiring for him with his factory cd player. So I didnt have to tear his dash back down to get to it later on, I went ahead and ran it with the factory ground. You cant "over ground" something, so I didnt see why itd hurt anything. Just my .02 on it.
