Does anyone here have a TC with the factory Lincoln amp? I had to disconnect mine because if was giving off horrendous feedback and now I have to turn the volume up to 20 (on my aftermarket Pioneer) just to get reasonable sound. My question is has anyone just found an aftermarket amp to replace the factory model? I can't be the only one.

We're you using the aftermarket radio with the stock amp?

Yes, Pioneer. The car had an aftermarket radio before I got it.

RE: Powerless
From what I've seen, the stock sub amp in these cars uses a 5v turn on and using a 12v signal can cause issues(popping, but I'd imagine in the long term it might cause damage).
Not sure if that holds any water, but it may be worth some research.
When I put the Pioneer headunit in my Sport, I used a voltage reducer to turn on the stock sub amp and it worked well.

Makes sense. Where can I find this magical voltage reducer you speak of? Lol!

RE: Powerless
I got one off ebay when I did it, or you can make one like in the video.
If the amp is old/damaged then you won't get any output anyway though.
