Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1999 explorer stock subwoofer

I am the proud owner of a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport. It has the premium sound and the stock 10'' sub in the rear quarter panel is blown. The replacement units cost close to $300! I want to fit in an 8'', I know it will fit, but would anyone know the specs on the stock amp? RMS power? Max to load?

    Thanks for the help. I took out the factory equipment last week. I replaced my head unit with an aftermarket Alpine I had from my last vehicle. I fit a compVT 8" from Kicker into there with an Orion Cobalt 300.2 amp. The amp runs off of speaker level inputs, but I ran pre-amp from the head unit with a EFX kit. The sound has a big improvement from stock, while keeping the stock look and enclosure. You could definatly fit a 10'' in there with a new box. All this cost under 200, plus my time. Crutchfield.com is a great site for car audio.

I would be very proud of that truck as the sub that came with the truck was only a 8". The only one that works is the factory model as it is a 1 1/2 - 2 ohm speaker; replacements are 4ohm. You will have to replace the amp as well if you put in an aftermarket sub. Oh and apparently the amp will have to have "speaker level" inputs as opposed to pre-amp inputs. I have a 1999 Eddie Bauer wih a blown sub and I'm trying to decide what to do as well. The speaker is $400 with tax in Canada! Good luck.

Is there anyway to flat tow my 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT. with no 4 wheel drive?


Hello Poca Buchanan,

WRONG.

Your "rental" FOLKs do NOT know of what they speak.

Your owners manual... Pages 192 & 246 both confirm... that your vehicle can be towed... and the SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES.

Drive wheels can only be towed in EMERGENCIES...
NOT to exceed 35 miles per hour...
Not to exceed 50 miles...!!


~~
If the drive wheels are off the ground... REGULAR TOWING PRECAUTIONS SHOULD APPLY.

(lets say a rear wheel drive... if the REAR WHEELS are on a carrier... you should be all PEACHES (reverse tow)).


If you cannot limit your distance or speed... and drive wheels are ON-THE GROUND...

Your DRIVE SHAFTS should be removed to protect the transfer case and/or transmission (by an AUTHORIZED FORD TECHNICIAN).


If you require assistance or clarification on Ford Motor Company policies or procedures, please contact the Ford Customer Relationship
Center at 1-800-392-3673 (FORD)

Hope this helps!!

Need keyless entry code for a 04 an 99 ford explorer


On your 99 model the module is located behind the left quarter trim panel,mid-way.You maybe able to see it by removing the speaker cover or the cupholder on top. The module will have a sticker with a 5 digit code.
On the 04 the model is behind the right quarter trim panel toward the front about even with the right rear door stricker.
