I have a 2001 Ford Escape with the MACH system/6-changer. Recently I
got a new Alpine head unit in order to accept an AUX input, but I was
told by the installer that the head unit could not drive the factory
amplifier. The amplifier only drives the factory subwoofer to my
understanding. I now miss the subwoofer, as crummy as it is. Were they
correct in telling me that the head unit cannot drive the amplified?
I am also interested in replacing the speakers, but have had a hard
time finding information that will help me install new speakers
myself. Crutchfield has no info on this car. I've been told that there
are two pairs of 6x8s in the doors, and tweeters on the front columns.
Is this correct?
Is there any information available that can guide me through the
self-installation process? And does anyone have any speaker
