'92 Explorer Premium Sound Amp

Well, I don't know what "nsn"s are (and I worked at the FACTORY!), but, here is the scoop on your 1992 Explorer Preimum Sound Amplifier.

If your Explorer has a Ford JBL Audio System, then the amp from another Ford vehicle will NOT work. The amp in the JBL system is a five channel model, with 4 amplified channels and a line-out for a separate SW amp. It is EQ'd uniquely to the carline and bodystyle it was designed for.

If your Explorer has "Premium Sound" (without JBL), then an amp from another Ford or L/M product will work, provided that the donor vehicle had a "Premium Sound" System, and not a Ford JBL System.

In short, the 4 channel amps from Premium Sound Systems will interchange, the 5 channel amps from the Ford JBL systems will not.

regards,

2 door or 4 door? the one in my truck should work for you, I just need to pull it out of the truck first (which i might be doing real soon)

If BOTH vehicles have Premium Sound (and NEITHER has JBL) the amp will work, no matter which body style.
