    Wil, if you want to use the factory amplifier, we advise you to purchase a wiring harness to integrate your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 factory amplifier. Here is the adapter you will need:

    Factory Amplifier Integration Wire Harness for 1999 Ford Escort ZX2

    If your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 does not have the amplifier, you will have to wire an aftermarket stereo straight to the speakers by running new wires to each speaker. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 stereo installation.
