S550 audio system
« on: April 17, 2017, 02:54:02 PM »
After much searching I have failed to obtain technical specifications for the S550 Shaker audio system that we receive in Australian specification S550 Mustangs.  My GT convertible arrives in August.  I anticipate audio upgrade (speakers at least) but am looking for tech specs on the power and other features of both amplifier and speakers so I get the right gear.

Can anyone help, please?

Just a bit of feedback on the stereo.
I picked up my MY 17 GT coup a couple of months ago and have found the stereo lacking in bass so have been looking at getting a sub fitted.
Can't find anyone at this stage who has the specs on the factory sub that's fitted in the States so looks like it's going to have to be an aftermarket unit.Just trying to find a unit that fits nicely in the boot.

OK.

Did you have to replace electrical / audio cable with higher specification cable to deal with higher power or was the OEM cable OK?

Ah ok sweet. I think once i get my 2018 I will have a look at what work needs to be done on that as sound of car and good sounding stereo is a must. Waiting to sell my 1 M coupe at the moment but want to try match the audio fidelity.

Can i ask where you had it done?

Fellas, can i ask - I picked up my car last friday just gone . I thought the GTs (like mine) had the shaker audio with the subwoofer in the trunk -- but there's no sub in the trunk on mine! Is this right? Will

No we don't get the sub, it is the shaker system but without the sub, the plug is there for the sub in the boot but the output isn't turned on, you have to get ford to turn on the signal.
They wouldn't turn it on for me until after I install the factory sub which is $1300. very annoying as I wanted to use a better cheaper sub.
Looks like im going to have to pick up the signals from the front the 6g forum has a thread that shows most of the connections.

hey cap70
is this the plug youre talking about?
The small brown and white one.
it isnt in any of the photos on the US forums. they have a blue connector next to the other plugs.
Thanks
