    My buddy wants to put in 2 12' subs in the back of his mustang, but he doesnt have an after market cd player. We've got the amp and 8 gauge wiring kit needed to do the task, but his cd player doesnt have RCA connectors. Does anyone know anything about how to bypass getting an after market cd player?

    Oh, and his car comes stock w/ the Mach 460 factory sound system installed, if that helps. Thanks guys.

    Don't forget the remote wire, and I am not sure where that would plug into on that particular system...I just tapped into the cdchanger in my trunk for mine.. :dunno:
    Unless your amp auto senses the signal of course :dunno:
