About the Axxess AFDI-5V

If you've replaced the radio in your Ford, Lincoln or Mercury, you've heard an audible "thump" sound when you turn on the power. The reason? Your Ford radio sent 5 volts to turn on the factory amp, not the 12 volts that your new car stereo delivers. In other words, the amp is simply getting too much juice.

If you've replaced the radio in your Ford, Lincoln or Mercury, you've heard an audible "thump" sound when you turn on the power. The reason? Your Ford radio sent 5 volts to turn on the factory amp, not the 12 volts that your new car stereo delivers. In other words, the amp is simply getting too much juice.

This AFDI-5V converter from Axxess will drop that voltage down to 5 volts, which the factory amp can handle better for an easier (and quieter) start. Warranty: 60 days.

No Thump when turning on!

Trent from Nappanee, IN on 4/26/2019

2007 Ford Focus ZX4

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works great! I was a little confused at the wiring of the smaller amp plug with the step down converter because the connector had 2 blue with white stripe wires in it. The 24 pin connector has 1 blue with white stripe wire in it as well. After a call to crutchfield they told me to connect both the blue and white wires of the smaller connector to the blue with red stripe wire of the step down converter and then connect the blue with white strip of the step down converter, the blue with white stripe of the 24 pin connector and the blue with white stripe amp turn on wire from the stereo together. Following those instructions everything works and there is no thump when I turn the radio on. I just bought this car and there was an aftermarket stereo in it already. It did not have one of these step down converters and it did thump whenever you turned the car on so I know this thing is doing something and would highly recommend this accessory for this setup.

Simply can't believe how easy it was to install. This was 1 of 4 products I recently purchased for my install. I've put in a few stereos myself, but it's been a while. Get online, tell them what I have (vehicle, stock audio receiver, etc.), tell them the new audio receiver I'm getting, then, they work their magic and I get a list of everything I need to put it in. This particular item does exactly what it's supposed to and I received detailed instructions to make it just that easy. If I had never put in a stereo, I still think this would have been a no brainer. Thank you Crutchfield.

Works great and did the trick; no pop/thud when the stereo turns on. I will say, though, that the guide from Crutchfield could have been just a little bit more clear on the wire hook-ups. A quick look on youtube confirmed that how I was interpreting their directions was correct, though. Installed in a 2004 F-150.

Pros: No popping when turning on the stereo.

Cons: Directions get you 75% of the way there... then you have to guess or look up how others did it (may depend on vehicle make/model, too). Or call the support line to confirm it, I installed on a weekend, so had to rely on youtube.

Mostly eliminated pop

Mark from Ft Wayne, IN on 10/12/2017

2015 Ford Mustang

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought a new jvc head unit and the ready harness service. Converter wasn't installed when I first received the harness, but I called tech and they sent out a new harness with the converter installed. While I waited I had the new radio installed and got the loud pop on startup. Once I installed the new harness with converter, it eliminated the initial turn on pop completely, But if I have the radio on in acc mode and Then start the car, it still pops right when the radio shuts off basically unless u turn the volume off first. Why is this???

Pros: Eliminated initial turn on pop

Cons: Still pops if radio is already on when starting car, not As loud, but still does it

This was supposed to eliminate the POP in the subwoofers, when you turn on the radio by dropping the 12 volt signal, down to the 5 volts needed. I wired according to the schematic, but I still hear a POP (not that loud) when the radio first comes on. Radio works fine otherwise, and the POP isn't a big deal to me. According to the wiring directions it appears to be a parallel connection, which is how I wired it. Maybe I didn't wire it correctly, so I gave it the benefit of doubt and 3 stars.

This product is very easy to install, but it didn't entirely eliminate that "thump" when my car is turned on. I double checked the installation instructions and still it thumps. Doesn't take away sound quality, just an annoyance.

It is great for what it is a amp saver if you have a factory amp I would suggest this product, but it don't come with instructions to wire it up so I had to call customer service Cody was very helpful and in two minutes I had it wired into the harness.

Pros: Does exactly what it claims

Reduces the 12-volt DC to the 5-volts required by speakers don't absorb the full thrust. In a manner of speaking, it's a safety device for stock 35 -55 watt speakers. The Axxess AFD-5V should be used in any good quality install.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This did exactly what it was intended to do, keep my factory amp/sub from the dreaded pop when powering on. The only problem I faced was that the wire coming from my new head unit was solid blue instead of blue with white stripe as stated in the instructions. My particular head unit apparently had the color coding backwards where the power antenna lead was blue with white stripe and the amp lead was solid blue. I guess most head unit wiring is color coded the opposite way. Other than that it did what it was supposed to do.

It works, but not entirely. There is still a "pop" or "thump" noise every now and then. The wiring is all soldered correctly. I didn't want to cut and wire/solder so I am just dealing with it. It happens randomly mainly, when I shut off the car.

Pros: Prevents the "pop"/"thump" noise on almost every command change.

Cons: Still has "pop"/"thump" noise mostly when the car is turned off.

This part was recommended because I was replacing a receiver in a Mach 460 sound system from a Ford Mustang. These are notoriously tricky sound systems. This part prevents power surges (loud pops) from the subwoofer when you power on the receiver. It works perfectly. In fact, my sub had a quiet, but noticeable, thump when I powered up the factory receiver. Now there is no sound at all. Better than factory!

Works amazing with my system since I haven't replaced my F150's stock subwoofer. But there was no instructions on how to wire it. Called and got a straight answer and was done in 2 minutes.

Pros: Small and fits good behind head unit

Cons: Lacks install instructions

this product was supposed to prevent the "thump" noise when they car is powered on however after wiring everything in (without this part) I started my car and there was no "thump" noise so this part found its way into the trash.

Pros: Might help someone with their Thump noise. But not me

Cons: Instructions unclear. Didn't need this part anyway.

Very easy item to wire, worked perfect in my 2005 F150. 3 wires to wire, 1 to ground (I just wired to stock ground wire) 1 to the wire harness and the other to the reciever sub/amp wire harness. The wire harness install sheet tells you color for color the specific wire.

This is used to convert the power to 5v to the factory amp turn on lead. It stops the amp from thumping or popping when the unit comes on. If you wire your head unit to the Ford factory amp without this you will get popping and or thumping at power up.this simply prevents it and is free with the purchase of a head unit.

Pros: It works as described

Necessary for Fords and like cars that use a 5V turn on instead of 12V. Kudos to Crutchfield for noting this when I ordered my stereo. Simple connection in-line to the power wire, and no annoying loud "POP!" when you start the car.

Use of this "converter" was the most frustrating part of installing my new radio. There are no good directions. I had to search on the internet and finally found a picture showing which wires went where. Then I confirmed this with a Crutchfield advisor. Yet I still hear an occasional pop turning on the radio. Crutchfield does a fantastic job with every other aspect of radio installation. Why forget about this one?

Get Rid of the POP

OlYeller01 from Kingsville, TX on 7/25/2013

2007 Ford Mustang

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ford vehicles with premium factory audio systems have a lower voltage remote turn-on for their factory amps than the 12 volt turn-ons in most aftermarket decks. Without a converter, turning on your ignition with an aftermarket deck gives you a VERY loud "POP" through your speakers. Besides being shockingly loud, the pop makes your whole sound system seem cheap. This converter is extremely simple to wire up and eliminates the annoying pop. It's definitely worth the money. Don't even THINK of installing an aftermarket deck in a Ford with a "Shaker" audio system without this converter.

Pros: Eliminates the pop Low cost Super easy to install

Cons: None
