Got Around To Wiring My Sub As Indicated Here!
I just got my SVTF 4 months ago and was getting around to doing this. I finally did it today and it works great! Only thing is that I cut the wrong white/black wire and was getting a humming sound when connecting the sub. When I realized my mistake and used the right white/black wire, all was good. I mounted a Kenwood KDC-BT755HD HU if anyone would like to know. Thanks for the write up!

By using the shield of the RCA cable as ground, you eliminate the cables ability to filter RFI noise. So, if the only difference between the two above suggestions is that I am using a single RCA to run two output circuits wouldn't the extra 30 seconds required to run two RCA cables be worth my while due to RFI filtering ability?
The reason I ask is I have a hard time believing Sony would go through the trouble of putting a red SUB + and a white SUB - on the back of my headunit if all I need is one wire.
If it works it works, I'm just trying to figure out the difference between the two methods.
From what I gather is:
The pre amp outputs don't require hardly any current flow so by using only one RCA I am basically using the minimal amount of wire required. The sub pre amp - will be grounded at all times through the RCA shield circuit and the signal will travel along the RCA core providing sub pre amp +. The amp gets the signal and steps up the current to the magnet and thus runs the sub. If this is true, Ford just wasted their time and money making a dedicated pre amp - wire between the stereo and amp.
