    Mach 460 watts?

    How many watts does the stock Mach 460 stereo system output? I am wanting to go to a Pioneer head unit with no amps to save weight and get rid of the two piece stock head unit, front amp, and rear deck system.

    Where do you get that info from? My stereo which is in good working order gets no where near 400+ watts.

    How do you know it gets nowhere near 400+ watts? What method did you use to test it?

    The age old ear method. LOL My last personal car had a 25x4way Pioneer and was much louder and clearer than the Mach 460 unit. The amps in the back are very very light if you've ever taken one out so there can't be much in them.

    I think only aftermarket stereo components are rated at RMS power. Mach 460=460 watts peak power.

    its because its true power its a marketing gimic
    because if you label something as having 500W but its not on the same scale you can compare it to a system rated at 500W rms witch will be much more expensive

    everything is rms power except cheap electronics

    In that case I like my cheap Mach 460 stereo. Sounds great to me.

    I know the head unit is kinda heavy, but not to bad. The stock amps are fairly light. I don't need a sub box and the aftermarket amps to run subs and all the other speakers. Plus I don't care to lose any trunk space in an already sparse trunk.

    It doesn't matter. It's stock, which means it sucks.


    BTW, wattage ratings usually mean jack shit.

    My old DD Concorde came with an Infinity 7-speaker stereo and it sounded pretty good for stock actually.
    Some new cars are getting Rockford and Kicker stereo's....and its about time.
