Finally figured out through old forums, the subwoofer mute wire as described on Metra's harness is actually a 2 in 1. The Exepeditions used the green/violet wire as the amp turn on AND a mute wire. Like when you'd get a bluetooth phone call, that wire would cut or "mute" the subwoofer so it's not in use during the call. They say that essentially Metra's mute wire is the equivalent of Ford's amp turn on wire. So I can just basically wire that into the green/violet.

This makes everything so much easier lol. Makes sense because I was wondering what you'd use from that Metra harness to turn the amp on since it's supposed to fit the OEM harness.
