2000 Taurus SE: deck/amp/subs/wiring question
Hey i recently picked up an 00' taurus se (loaded, i might add), and i have a few questions.
i have had an aftermarket deck with an amp, subs, and box in my 95 caravan for a long time. after looking at my taurus, i dont see where or how i can mount an aftermarket deck. the plate has climate controls and all the radio/cd options built into one single faceplate (i have the mach 6 cd system with the changer in the trunk).
Is there any way i can wire everything so i can run my amp and subs off the stock system and changer? i dont know where i can find a specific new plate to mount an aftermarket deck in because of the awkward shape of the faceplate with climate controls. i doubt the stock deck has RCA outputs in the back so i dont know how i could get music to the amp (im not looking to wire the amp to the factory speakers, just to the sub).
I've heard of people just putting their deck into the little rectangle slot beside the lighter socket, but wouldnt that negate the whole 6 cd changer its got? i like the look of the stock faceplate and the controls so if i can run my amp and subs off the stock deck i would love to.
any help or tips you all could give would be greatly appreciated.
