I'd like to correct you on this. In the trunk behind the d-side passenger there is a connector for the sub woofer on all the 08 focuses. The the only reason why we can't tap a woofer set up off of this on non-audiophile systems is because behind the head unit in the dash Ford cut off the harness and there is no 'spot' in the head unit to get a clean sub out. There has been a previous post about this 'issue' where I have posted pictures of the cut harness and lack of connector on the head unit for the appropriate connector if it was there.
