 Sound System Info
Description
The Document outlines Information that is required when Installing, Fitting, and wiring an aftermarket Audio system to an EA-EL model Falcon, Fairmont, Fairlane, LTD, and Tickford Model Falcons.
This includes the following,
  • Removing the Factory Fitted Audio System
  • Factory Wiring Information, including Wire Colours, and Purpose
    As well as the above information, this document also outlines Factory options that may have been fitted, and how to integrate these to an Aftermarket audio system.
    These options include,
  • Power Antenna Control Modules and Height Adjustment Switches.
  • Amplifier Location, and Wiring Information
  • Optional Speaker Placements, wattage, etc.
  • Factory Car Phone Mute wiring information
  • CD Stacker Placement, and Wiring Information
    Please Note : Obviously, some or all of the above options may not be fitted to all Falcon Models, but enough information is provided to determine what options are available, and what can be used with an Aftermarket System.
  • EF and EL Falcon Factory Deck Removal
    Warning : The Factory sound system utilises a 4 Digit Security code. If power to the Deck is removed, then it will be necessary to re-enter this code to enable the Deck operation.
    It is therefore a good idea to ensure that you have this code available so as to allow the Factory Deck to be used again.

    To remove the Factory System, you will also need an Anti Tamper Torx Screwdriver or bit, as these screws are used to hold the Factory Deck mounting bracket in place.
  • Open the Ash tray, and remove the Radio Shroud screw that is used to the left of the ashtray.
  • Swing the Radio Shroud upwards, from the Bottom. It is held in place at the bottom by 1 clip, and will take some effort to disengage.
  • Disengage the Radio shroud by unclipping the three clips at the top of the shroud.
  • The mounting bracket used to secure the Factory sound system will now be visible, as will the Anti-Torx Screws. Depending on the Model (Base, Mid or Premium sound system), there may be 2 or 4 screws holding the assembly in place. Remove all visible Anti-Torx Screws.
  • The Factory Sound system should now slide out from its housing, complete with its mounting bracket. You will need to disconnect the electrical connectors, and Antenna Plug to remove the Deck completely form the vehicle.
  • CD Stacker Removal
    The CD Stacker is mounted on the Rear parcel tray, and is accessible from the Boot.
    The Factory Model used is similar in terms of specs, and wiring to Alpine models available at and around the time of manufacture.
    The CD Stacker can only be used exclusively with Alpine Decks, (Capable of using these model CD Stackers), and Factory Ford Sound Systems from EB-EL model Falcons, with CD Stacker support.
    To remove the CD stacker, will need to get access to the Stacker Mounting Bracket screws.
    For Security purposes, the heads of these screws are underneath the rear parcel tray, and hence the rear parcel tray, 6" Speakers, Child Seat Anchor, and clips, will need to be removed.
    To do this :
  • 1) The 6" Speakers need to be removed, this can be achieved by removing the 3 Nuts that hold the speaker in place, underneath the Parcel tray, within the Boot.
    Once these nuts have been removed, then the speakers and speaker grilles can be simply pulled up and out from the Rear parcel tray. (Remember that you will need to also disengage the Speaker connectors before you do this).
  • 2) Remove the Child Seat Anchor. To do this, you will need a suitably sized Allen key.
  • 3) Remove the 2 Colour coded Plastic slips for the optional Child Anchors.
  • 4) Once the above has been removed, then the parcel tray carpet can be removed, (to a certain extent, as the Center Seat Belt will still be attached.
  • 5) Remove the Four screws that hold the CD stacker Bracket to the Rear Parcel tray metal.
  • Factory Amplifier Removal
    The Factory Fitted amplifier module is fitted underneath the Boot Carpet, on the drivers side of the Vehicle, near the Rear brake lamp assembly.
    The Amplifier is mounted on a special Bracket, which is Pop Riveted to the Vehicle Chassis.
    To get access to the amplifier, remove the Boot Lining carpet that covers the Drivers side Brake Lamp housing.
