Audio Mod – Radio/Headunit

This page covers installing my new Alpine 9847 MP3/WMA radio into my truck. My Ford Mach MP3 unit locked up and refused to play CD’s, so I decided it was time. The 9847 has Alpine’s superb quality and reliability; along with a very simple design and control layout.  I didn’t want a fancy light show or motorized panels, and this one is just the ticket. Here are the specs: 18 watts X 4 RMS (50 watts max), 3 PreOuts (sub-woofer controls), Alpine BBE processor, Bass Engine, WMA/MP3 player, Versa-link (plays from iPod or PDA source), quick MP3 file searching, and the removable face plate makes it more secure.


I have recently changed to a new radio and bezel. For this, I made a two part YouTube video which you can view here:
