    2011 Shelby GT500 with stock nav HU

    Helping a friend upgrade the speakers and adding a couple of amps in his Snake but it seems that we have run into a little glitch with the speaker wires off the HU.

    We will be using a Alpine PXE-H660, is it possible to use the speaker level outputs straight from the back of the deck to the PXE-H660 and then run speaker wires from the amps back to the "now unused speaker wires" from the factory harness? we don't want to mess with trying to get new wires through the doors. Or do I need to go with something like the PIE AOEM-FRD24

    Only reason why I'm questioning this is because tonight when I was testing to see if I had the correct speaker wires, I cut the negative wire to the right front speaker but I was still able to get sound from it. It was much lower in volume but was producing sound non the less. Just didn't know if I was missing something when it comes to the shaker 500 system.

    Oh and before someone says it will be much easier and sound better replacing the stock HU, that's not an option right now and something that has already been mentioned to my friend many times.

    Do an factory amp bypass, a line out converter(s) and a line driver.

    so where is the factory amp for the 6x8's, I thought the shaker 500 only had the amp for the 8" door subs (the one located in the driver kick panel).
    If I'm using the PXE-H660 why couldn't I pull the signal before the amp and then feed the signal back after the amp? Essentially bypassing the amp(s).

    I have yet to locate any other amps besides the sub amp mentioned above. Is the amp built into the HU?

    Its a beast of a car, it's putting down about 800hp to the ground right now and he's about to send it out to have the bottom end built so he can shoot for 1000hp. We are actually relocating the battery to the trunk and adding 2 12's, he's having traction issues as is so a little weight in the back will be a good thing.

    But that doesn't fix my stereo issue. LOL

    Well that sucks... you can modify the engine to 1000hp but not get rid of the factory head unit.

    What can I say...he likes the look of the stock HU and who am I to judge, he's the one with a Shelby, not me.

    Oh and for those that worried, Ford is still using Radio Shack rejects even on 60k cars.

    this is what we pulled out of the back deck.

    got the batter mounted and finished running the wires to the back of the car, will spend tomorrow running dual 4ga from the engine bay to the trunk.



    Oh and just a few more pictures for you guys to show why we run slicks and need the extra weight in the back.

    Stock blower



    And the Kenne Bell 3.6 Mammoth, we had to go with a King Cobra hood for clearance.





    yep...liquid cooled.

    in the mile??? 200 in any distance is impressive, the driving experience becomes completely different once you pass 150.

    No, he's upgraded so he's able to get to over 200mph.
