I have a 2000 gt conv. with mach 460 amps.
The car has a aftermarket head unit.
It sounds pretty thin so I'am thinking only the the front amp is working.
Is it worth even trying to mess with this system?
I have a old 400 watt Hifonics amp I could put in.
How good can theses Mach amps sound with newer speakers?
Thanks.

no. I use to know some tweeks to where you could make it sound pretty good with an aftermarket deck but since then the amps have become battery drains and the speakers have dry rotted/worn out.

If you go aftermarket, you'll need to do it 100%. The mach speakers are a unique resistance that will overpower aftermarket amps and cause damage.

Aftermarket head unit to the aftermarket amp and 4 good speakers(or components) will sound much better than trying to make the old Mach stuff work well.



Some aftermarket decks do allow for tweaking of the sound system. I have an aftermarket head unit with the mach amps and speakers and after messing with it, it sounds ok. Won't ever be as good as pure aftermarket NEW stuff.
