Hi everyone, I'm upgrading the audio in my 2013 Focus SE (6 speaker, non-
Sony). I'm a little confused as to what hardware I need when it comes to wiring.
-I'm changing out the stock radio for a Double Din
-I'd like to keep my steering wheel controls.
-I'm installing a 5.1 channel amp
-I"m installing a 10" subwoofer
-I've already installed two component speaker kits (one front, one rear. Currently using stock speaker wire from radio)

I'm wondering if I need a Harness or an Interface or both.

I appreciate the help!

Some stereo's will handle steering oem steering wheel integration on there own. If you are using one that does, you just need to tap the control wire. If you are running a stereo that doesn't, you will need a steering wheel interface. You will need a factory adapter harness.

a section of "9" wire will make, wiring in your 4 out of the 5 channels very easy.

a standard amp wiring kit will fill in the rest of what you need

I ended up getting the Axxess XSVI-5524-NAV for the interface/wiring harness.

Another option would have been to use these TWO things in combination:
AX-ADBOX1
AX-ADFD02

To retain the steering wheel controls I got the Axxess ASWC-1. It plugs directly into the XSVI-5524-NAV, making it plug and play.
