FS: Ford-Audiophile-6-Disc-Head-Unit-Fusion & Sirius Ready

I've replaced my factory Audiophile-6-Disc-HU recently for a Kenwood DDX712. This factory unit is in excellent condition and comes Sirius Satellite Radio ready.







For reference, the HU was manufactured in May '07 prior to my Fusion's June '07 build date.

For the record, this will 2004 and newer F-150, 2005 and up F250, F350, New Mustang, New Freestyle, Focus, Explorer, New Expedition, Mountaineer, Focus, Fusion, Milan, Five Hundred 500 , Montego just to name a few...

However, an antenna adapter is required if your vehicle is 04-06. The unit will plug into model year 07+ newer style antennas.


I'm asking $175 which includes shipping anywhere within the continental US via FedEx Ground Insured w/Tracking# provided. Payment by Paypal only please, & also NO E-Checks will be accepted. Thanks for looking everyone!

HEATWARE

[/quote]If I understand you correctly, are you looking to add Sirius to your existing HU? If so, what HU do you have, 4,6, 8 speaker audiophile or which?

[/quote]I see now, sorry. Yes this will fit your car but you may or may not need an antenna adapter...

[/quote]Other than an antenna setup, nothing else as this HU is Sirius ready. I'm actually looking into what exactly one would need for a car without the antenna already present. I will ask around but this HU will work with your car.

Update: You cannot buy an antenna for this HU as it's a Ford specific part and only Ford will sell it. You'll then need to contact Ford for the appropriate antenna setup for your car, other than that you should be good to go.

Update 2: Here's a pic of a few cables, one of which I got from Dan (slaterracing), the other came off the car when new HU was installed along with the new Sirius tuner...



Now with my new HU, the Kenwood DDX712, I had to add a whole new Sirius Tuner, link below:

the item in the middle is the antenna that mounted right on my dash in dead center, perfectly flush with the windshield.
