Hope this helps...one wire is completely taped it is bare wire under the tape..not sure if that's factory or not[/QUOTE]

Whew it sure does!! Based on your pics (thank you so much) I have to switch the pins on my male end harness I ordered from metra. Otherwise it wouldn't have worked right!

Hello,
I'm new to audio wiring and hoping to find out the best course of action trying to install a 2010 OEM Sony 700 watt subwoofer with the stock amp into a 2004 F-150 with the stock head unit that didn't have a sub or amp previously. Do I just need the LOC I read about, or does anybody know if there would be issues with the install? I can't find anything like this already done, I appreciate any help,
Thanks

Possibly. What year is the truck? You would need to compare the backs of the radios. Also if the Nav HU is from a Sony system it will not work for sure

Hey guys - I have an 05 F150 with the AM/FM/CD6 head unit. It's a great truck and I have no complaints about the head unit or sound quality.

I would love to have an Aux adapter for iPhone connectivity. I'm at work right now and will have time to research/sift through the various pages of this forum later in the day. Meanwhile, does anyone have any quick tips or product suggestions for current methods of adding Aux?

Go aftermarket. You'll gain so many more features for your money. I debated this for a while and decided aftermarket was the way to go.

Thanks for the suggestion. Any comments on components that are worth the $$$? I don't want to buy cheap and buy twice. Also, I will be installing myself.. I just need some good ideas on what's out there.

Boss can be hit or miss but I've had this one going on 5 years now and still running strong. 3 years in my truck and 2 years in the wife's Explorer.
