Our take on the USA SPEC DF-FORD1 Adapter
Enjoy maximum possible sound quality when you play your portable music through your Ford's factory radio. USA SPEC's innovative DF-FORD1 adapter lets you connect your portable music player directly to your compatible 1997-up Ford factory radio. Just plug the adapter cable into your radio's CD changer input, mount the interface box, and you're ready to listen to your tunes.
And the news gets better if you also have another sound source you want to hook up to your Ford's sound system, the DF-FORD1 provides a second set of connections for an iPod, satellite radio tuner, or DVD player. You can switch between sources with your factory radio controls. Warranty: 3 years.

DF-FORD 1 allows you to add two auxiliary inputs to the factory radio in select
Ford vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory system using the supplied cables, avoiding wire
splicing and modifications. Since the adapter is controlled by the factory
radio, the available controls should be described in the factory manual.
Note: The adapter is
not compatible with vehicles that have factory navigation and DVD
systems. The adapter takes the place of the CD changer, so you cannot
have a CD changer and the adapter connected to your vehicle at the same
Mounting: The adapter can be
secured to any flat surface using the supplied mounting screws.
Connections: The adapter has
two auxiliary inputs (Audio Input 1 and 2) on the left side panel. Each input
consists of left and right RCA audio jacks. On the right side panel, the adapter
has a round 8-pin jack that interfaces with the supplied
cable. The adapter end of the cable has a round 8-pin connector that plugs into
the adapter. The opposite end of the cable has
rectangular 12-pin female connector that plugs into the black rectangular 12-pin
(9 pins present) male connector on the CAS-F10 cable or the CAS-F20 cable. Your
specific vehicle will determine which cable you must use.

CAS-F10 and CAS-F20 cables
