Crux's SOOFD-27C interface ensures that you can keep the factory speaker system in your Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury vehicle when you replace the factory radio. Connect the wires from this interface to the wires on the new stereo's wiring harness, and your power, ground, and factory speaker connections are covered.
