Re: 2014 Taurus SONY Radio Upgrade

Yea, you may not need to go my route. With the Sony system you may have all the power you need, just crap speakers. My system now sounds great even with factory speakers but I'm guessing new speakers will be killer!

Re: 2014 Taurus SONY Radio Upgrade

Hello, I have a 2014 Limited without the sony system and it was a poor excuse for a stereo as well. I used an Audiocontrol LC6 to pull and clean up the signal. This also takes care of remote turn on duties, it senses signal and auto turns on(amps as well). I used a Rockville four channel amp for doo...

Re: 2010 Audio Build

Well, I ended up putting an amp rack behind the rear seats. I was able to screw in some "L" brackets to secure it in place. I used an Audiocontrol Lc6 and pulled signal from the speaker wires before they enter each door. I used a Rockville 4 channel for the door speakers and a Rockford mono amp for ...

Re: 2014 Taurus Highway Vibration

My 2014 limited hums like a champ. But I wouldn't call it a vibration, more of a mud truck with knobby tires sound. I plan on steel wheels and snow tires this winter so that will tell me what my problem is..

Re: factory code for keypad

You can find the factory code under the steering wheel on the fire wall. It should be on a sticker with a barcode.

Re: 2010 Audio Build

BUMP

I am hoping you can share pictures of your finished amp rack. I am getting started on a build for my 2014 Limited and I am considering the same location for my amp rack.

Re: Traded my 2014 Lmtd. Taurus today...

Believe me, I understand the grievance but I feel that your conclusions that any other automaker would do better may be misplaced. And I do stress "may," certainly not a... well, certainty. Take the battery, for example. Only a handful of manufacturers make batteries. Most retailers simply add thei...

Re: Traded my 2014 Lmtd. Taurus today...

Interesting thread...I had a leak in my sunroof that required a fair amount of fighting with Ford, as they stated all of their sunroofs leak a bit under heavy water load. Also had some suspension issues, roads in my area are pretty bad so that might have helped....I have 15k miles on mine. The late...

Re: Traded my 2014 Lmtd. Taurus today...

So cars from the 80's and 90's will deter you from buying one now? Cars, during that time frame, were junk as a rule. Sheet metal, paint, frames, engines, transmissions all had issues from many or even all manufactures. Going by your logic I sure as heck wouldn't buy another Ford based on what I sa...

Wow, I also bought a 2014 limited from a dealer that turns over a lot of previous rentals. So far I am very pleased but today only marks week three. Well I did make a bad call on mine that influenced the trade... I kept seeing these small flickers in the right light on the windshield, and came to t...

New guy from New York

Upstate NY that is! I purchased my 2014 Limited just over a week ago and thought I had better find a forum, as I always do. When I bought my car I thought it was black, I have learned the color is dark side green? I like it and love the car thus far, time will tell how reliable it is. My last cat w...
