Does anyone know if the stock radio ( head unit ) have RCA outputs. I want to install an 800 watt amp to a couple 10"subs. If they don't have RCA's what r my other options.
Thanks for any suggestions

No stock Ford radios have RCA's. You need to tap into the speaker wires or use a low level adapter to feed your amp. Also tap into the fuse box for a switched turn on lead.

I have a PAC AOEM-FRD24 plug and play adapter in my 2013 STX, no nav no Sony with sync. Works like a charm, all functions still work same as factory. I've got both sets of RCAs to my 4 channel amp running my door and back speakers (single cab) and the line out from that amp to the external crossover, then from the crossover to the sub amp.

If you intend to keep the stock head unit, the PAC is the best option, unless you want to get into cutting wires.

I want to do the same thing and I've got the PAC, so where did you hook your amp output to your speakers?

I ran new wires from the amp to the speakers and just zip tied the stock plugs out of the way to nearby objects.

Sounds good! Glad to here the PAC works on the 2013 basic audio system.
