    AH. I got a JVC Carplay receiver for Christmas. I put the same background on mine. The black honeycomb with the cobra emblem.

    Hey I know this threads a little old but the op seems knowledgeable. I was curious if you think this would work on my 2000 GT. It is currently a single din but I got a radio bezel trim piece for a 2002 so it had the double din. I was wondering if you think it would be the same install because I was going to do exactly what you did

    I don't know how much is applicable to a non-Mach 460 stereo. I'd call Crutchfield to verify what you need. I'm sure that it can be added, but the harnesses will be different.

    It is a Mach 460 unit but prior to 2001 it is a single din unit. Okay I'll give them a call tho thank you

    Looks great. It really is nice to have all those features in a radio; it helps to keep the car a little more modern.

    Youll need this harness for your car if you want to keep the Mach 460.

    The plug for the woofer amps might be cut off if they put a stock double din in. In that case, it would be easier to replace the speakers and run new wires to bypass the factory speakers. Youll be able to remove the amp/speaker box in the rear.

    So I was thinking of using a similar head unit but also adding a powered subwoofer and just crossover [block] the bass from the factory speakers. The factory amplifier and speakers seem to be great for mids and highs, but are just terrible on the low end for bass.

    Will this work?

    Look on Crutchfield. I ordered the Sony XAV-AX100 and it has a subwoofer output. Plus you can have them premake the harness for you so it becomes plug and play. Very simple and easy

    right I figured any head unit with a pre-amp output (which most of them have) should work. I was just curious if anyone left the whole 460 system alone and just swapped out the head unit and added the subwoofer...

    If you can stop the bass from hitting the factory speakers I would think it would sound pretty solid.

    Just keep in mind that the factory system is 8 ohm vs. standard 4 ohm. If you isolate everything, then it should work. You need to bypass the factory amps.

    I would personally not do a hybrid setup. Just pull all the factory stuff.

    I'm happy with the sound with the factory subwoofer after a lot of setting adjustments. I'm pretty picky.

    How do you like the quality of the radio? I am currently looking for a new head unit.

    I like it a lot. There are probably newer versions now.

    Thanks for the screens. I'll use one on my AVIC-8200NEX I put in this summer. Love this unit and it came with a backup camera as well.

    UPDATE: Old thread, but with the latest apple update Google Maps and Waze (my preference) work with the 4200 and newer units.

    351Stang,

    Thanks for posting this, motivated me to upgrade the old HU for some modernization. Used the JPGs you posted as well. Wife said it looked stock and asked if the JPG came with it so guess it looks clean.

    Went with the lesser/newer MVH-1400NEX as I haven’t used a CD/DVD in about ten years. So far so good, car play and wireless streaming services are great.

    My head unit volume is all screwed up plus the sound of an older system just doesn’t cut it anymore. How easy is this install, or is it just easier to have an audio shop do it? Thanks

    Buy from Crutchfield. Pay $25 for the custom Mach 460 harness. Should come free with bracket and ancillary gear. Install takes 10 - 20 min depending on how long it takes you to find the right socket.

    I honestly didn't like the sound quality from the aftermarket head unit, so I went back to stock. I'm guessing if I replace the head unit, I will just replace the amps and speakers, too. Are you guys ok with just a head unit replacement?

    Did you adjust the speaker settings and the subwoofer settings? Mine sounded significantly better.
