I'm assuming you want to hook up your ipod or mp3 player to your system. Yea, unfortunatly theres not much out there for us focus people. I've been trying to find ways to do this and keep the stock(non svt 6disc changer). No luck. Fm transmitters suck, and the direct connection units..which are expensive only work on decks that do not have 6 disch changers....figures. Idk if other people on here will be able to help but if you get no answer, I'd go to a good car audio place and ask them. It would have to be a custom job to get it done honestly.
I just hooked up my ipod to my car today. I bought the harmon/kardon drive+play last summer.. but fm sucked so I finally picked up the wired adaptor which is a direct connect to the antenna. Of course cause it's a Ford lol, I had to buy antenna adaptors....to use the adaptor(yay, thankfully they were cheap). So finally got that hooked up and theres a mess of wires in my glove box haha. But everything works good and it's better then just with the fm transmitter. But soud quality is still not great and theirs a faint static buzz in the background. The best possible way to get the best sound is a direct connection, which I can't accomplish with the stock radio...so after all the hassel I might be looking at a new deck anyway...but I'm sure it'll be better then my stock setup.
Anyway, ask around, I'm sure theres some svt owners with the audiophile system that have checked out their decks. And I'm sure theres a way to hook up an aftermarket deck with the stock speakers and sub/amp combo.
BUt yea like I said, if your looking to hooking up your ipod or mp3 player...the best way is a direct connection via aux or usb port, so you might want to rethink aftermarket.
