2016 Ford Edge - Aftermarket Subwoofer & Amplifier install

Recommended Posts

Looking good! I really want to upgrade all the speakers and install a 12" or at least a 10" sub.

Nice install. I've been looking at the low profile JL's to retain the spare tire. Any plans to move beyond just sub upgrade?

Does your Edge have the Sony premium system? If so, where did you install your LOC?

I have replaced all factory locations with upgraded speakers and amplification. (still working on center stage speaker)

 

I ordered this vehicle specifically with a base audio system so upgrading would not be as difficult to integrate into vehicle. As for now I am using factory ford sync head unit (not Sync 3) with a Euphoria EDSP31v2 DSP unit from DB Research.

 

At some point in the future I will upgrade head unit. Hoping an aftermarket kit manufacturer will have a kit available after CES this year. If not I will be forced to custom modify dash to accommodate an aftermarket unit.

 

I am very pleased with factory unit for now. The EDSP31v2 has high level input availability plus auto senses signal and comes on and off with factory head

I tapped signal behind the (ACM) Audio Front Control Module "AKA the CD player unit"

 

I would have to research to see where the Sony premium systems best available place to connect LOC at.

I got directly from the battery. On a 2016 there is a factory grommet on the firewall to the left of the steering column...comes out under battery box...I ran to the right (from under dash) and used factory wire secure points. See photos of how i made custom bracket to hold fuse holder as near to battery as possible.
