Does this mean the system is 80W or 320W?
"Output power: 80W x 4 channels"

Given that it's Boss Audio, it means it's 4x20 watts for a total of 80 watts.

So normally it would mean 320W but since it's a cheap brand you are thinking it means 80W?

Isn't peak power usually more than 80? Like I think my stock deck has a 290w peak.

I haven't put it in the truck yet, but the cellphone is synced with the CB and you use the mic as the mic and the internal speaker on the CB to hear.

Interesting. That's not really a hands free device though.

Well, you can't get in trouble for talking on a CB now can you? Once I get it installed (hopefully tomorrow) i'll let you know how it goes.

Are there any RCA jacks or aux inputs on the back of the factory radio?

If there is no way to add it to the factory radio for a reasonable price what aftermarket decks are you guys using to get bluetooth and how much are they?
the best option is to install a Ford original stereo with Bluetooth, USB, RDS and IPOD ready. i recomend this equipment. in my country it is sold at U$S130. is very accessible.
