Thanks
According to Ford the system will not work with Sony systems.

I called Kicker and was told that the Sub alone would work to replace the factory one, so I ordered one from Levittown hoping it would sound better and started the install tonight.

I believe I have it all hooked up correctly, but I'm not getting any sound out of the sub at all. The kit didn't come with the fuse, wire taps or foam wraps, so I went to the local store and picked some up. I've checked the power line, ground connection, fuse, and connections into the sub. The only thing I'm not certain of is if I'm tapped into the right wires behind the kick panel. They looked like the colors the manual calls for, white with purple stripe and white with orange stripe. I'm also wondering if the cheap wire taps from Autozone aren't getting a good connection.

Has anyone installed just the sub in a 2013 and can confirm the wire colors?

Thanks

Ignore my previous message. I was looking at the wrong bundle of cables and finally tapped into the right speaker cables. Now it sounds much better! This is what the truck should have come with originally.

Pics of sub with the seat up and down. It is a couple of inches wider than the Sony sub, but I still have most of the floor room under the drivers rear seat.

Were not planning on raising our prices but if Ford increases our cost then we have no choice. All of our accessories are marked this low
