The entire deck?? Why? A harness has been available for years from any retailer, with and without the subwoofer portion. But even without the subwoofer portion, a couple quick splices with an RCA and you're done.

2002FordFocusSVT I have a 02 svt and the column control has me confused... from what I have read....

white/black - grey/black = RCA sub input

white/red = remote turn on from radio

are these the only 3 wires needed to use the sub with a aftermarket head unit?

or do I need to hook the brown/yellow up to power also? to power the sub or does the sub already get power from the harness elsewhere?

Thanks the column control just thrown in the mix on the first page confuses me.

Steering Control

I have a Kenwood KDC-BT958HD put in. I just wired up the speakers and the sub last night. But I still have to steering control to do. The Third Ford harness still has a green/white, TWO yellow/browns, and a white/black wires left on it which go to the steering control I think. I have a wire on my Kenwood harness that is for the steering wheel control I just need to know what wires go to it and if there needs to be a power wire sent to the steering control and if that should be from the battery or the ignition. Thank You.

Wired My Stock Sub w/New Kenwood HU!

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!

PlaneCarBoat Okay so the wiring looks fairly simple. The only question I have is where do I plug the RCA cable into on my head unit? Here is my HU.

kevinw1797 I got it. It was my head unit. I had another Kenwood and it is fine. Works great.

Stlsinger Mine was solid blue and thick. And I had to cut it out of the harness. Use a test light with the key on
