    I called up scosche ( http://www.scosche.com/ ) today to ask them if they had anything for the '04 mach 460 system. The tech support informed me that they just came out with a harness for it which will run both the highs and lows unlike the metra one. The part number is FD23 and i found it on cardomain.com and ordered it today. Hopefully this works :S

    What's the difference in the 04 mach 460 system compared to the rest? I'm looking for a way to hook up an aftermarket head unit with my mach 1000. Will this harness work for my 02?

    For some reason the 04 needs a different harness. I think there is already one out there for the 02?? Someone else chime in..

    Yeah mine says the same, but the front says "Ford pwr / 4 spkr conn", only way to find out is to hook it up I guess.

    I hooked it up...doesn't sound AS good as the stock system....b/c it doesn't use the stock amps...but it does the job untill I decide to throw new speakers and my amps in..I can now play mp3s again!!

    yup...and it seems I jumped the gun on how it sounds. After driving to work last night and REALLY listening to it it sounds prety crappy...dopn't know why I didn't notice before...
    it sends most of the sound for the front speakers to the window doors...the mid range woofers on the bottom do not get anything. There is only one plug...for the harness while there is two in the car...one for the amps one for everything else.... :notnice:

    The deck powers your tweets, and when you use that harness it only powers the tweets. there is another plug which must be used to power everything up. Mach sucks ass when you try to change parts out!
