Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Radio Replacement Interface:
The CRUX SOOFD-27 is a radio replacement interface for select 2006-2012 Ford/Lincoln/Mercury
vehicles (w/ CAN bus systems). It facilitates the integration of an aftermarket radio to enable
retention of factory features (such as RAP, Aux In, & factory sub) when
replacing a factory installed radio in select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury cars (with or
without amplified factory audio systems).
Compatibility: The CRUX SOOFD-27 is supported by the
following 2006-2012 Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles; with CAN bus system and
amplified or non-amplified factory audio systems.
Note: Please consult Crutchfield's
Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible and what additional
installation accessories will be needed.
Retained Features: The CRUX SOOFD-27 radio replacement
interface module retains the vehicle's factory RAP (retained accessory power) and factory amplified subwoofer. It does not retain OEM steering wheel controls.
- Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The ignition power
source of many Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles keeps the radio on until one of
the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory
power). The CRUX SOOFD-27 is designed to retain this feature.
- Retains Factory-Installed Sub: The CRUX SOOFD-27 radio replacement
interface module retains the factory-installed subwoofer in Ford/Lincoln/Mercury
vehicles (if equipped).
Your aftermarket head unit must have at least one RCA preamp output.
- Factory Aux Input Retention: The SOOFD-27 will retain your
vehicle's factory aux input. Your aftermarket head unit will need to have a
rear-panel Aux input (a male mini to stereo female RCA adapter may be
required, sold separately).
Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SOOFD-27
radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense), Parking
and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket Navigation radio
simpler and less time consuming.
Amp Turn-On: The CRUX SOOFD-27 provides an amplifier turn-on
lead for your vehicle's factory amplifiers (if equipped), and includes a built-in 5-volt regulator to provide the proper turn-on voltage.
Wiring Harness: The included wiring harness features three
connectors (8-/12-/24-pin) which plug into your vehicle's factory radio harness, plus a
12-pin connector which plugs into the SOOFD-27 interface module. There are three
male RCA connectors which retain your vehicle's factory Aux Input and factory
amplified subwoofer. The wiring
harness also provides the following bare-wire leads which will need to be
hardwired to your aftermarket head unit's wiring harness.
