    Hey this may be a no brainer question but can you buy a Mach stereo system after you've got the car? If so anyone know where?

    It would cost more than going out and buying good quality aftermarket pieces. I wouldn't do it, you can build a better system for less money and hassle. Not that I am not happy with my Mach 460 but, I wouldn't pay what it would cost to install it in a car that didn't come with it.

    i agree. i dont know how much it would cost, but knowing the extreme mark-ups that dealers put on parts, it woudl probobly be best to go with an aftermarket system. you could proboly get an HU with 3 pre-amps, a 5 channel amp, 2 sets of speakers and a sub for 1000$ if you look in the right places. just dont get a cheap deck :nonono: you get what you pay for, i learned that the hard way.....twice...

    A few months ago in a 02 GT at Sun valley ford in concord ca. I saw a mach 1000 sound system that knocked... I beleive it had two 12's one in each corner of the trunk and bolted to the frame and like four ampts. Now I was impressed w/ my sony explode and my mach460 but the mach1000 put all that to shame all out of the dealier

    Problem is the Mach 1000 upgrade to an existing Mach 460 is $1300. If you don't already have the Mach 460 you are looking at close to $3000. For the same amount of money you can easily put together a system that will outperform the Mach 1000.

    For 1k you could easily put together a good system that will last better and out perform the mach systems, just do some shoppin, good speakers front and rear, a 4 channel amp and 2 10's in a sealed box with a mono amp and it will sound soooooo sweet, i did a guys 01 this way and it sounds great, my 95 has only 1 10 but it sounds sweet top up or down, my two cents Dan

    I have mach 360 or 460 sound system from a 99 cobra that I would sell you for cheap. It has the special rear mount for the 2 amps the 2 6X9 rear speakers and the front component speakers as well. I also have the tape deck with second din CD player. But as an enthusiant I must say that I feel ALL factory stereos are ridiculousy overpriced and for the same money you could build a kick arse system. I just put in a Clarion 835 HU, 12W3 ported sub, Boston components, and Eclipse 6X9 rear, with 1300W Sub amp and 275X4 front and rear amp all for under 2K installed. Let me know.
