    Your above 1987 Ford Mustang Car Stereo Radio Wiring Diagram doesn’t indicate the wiring hookup for the graphic equalizer. Do you have that information, or can tell me where to get it? I need to know to finish the hookup for my car stereo. Thanks!

    I have replaced my 1987 ford mustang factory car stereo with a jvc stereo and i have very little sound coming from the speakers. I have tried several new units all have same issue, any suggestions would be very welcome.

    To Charles rump: you might have crossed a +/- on your speaker wires. Hope this helps.
