I've installed a new stereo in my sport trac but I can't seem to get the sub in the back seat to work. I have the correct wiring harnesses and the voltage regulator. I think I have my wiring wrong? And I'm not sure how to post pictures on here either. Please help!

I had the picture problem. Use photobucket.

The bottom code will be the one that you'll use.

Why do you need a voltage regulator?

you could use a in line resistor to, it is for the factory amp to go from 12v to 6v

I think it is to eliminate the "pop" sound when it turns on

start with the simplest stuff first. test for continuity on the wires that goes to the sub. double check your wiring for the amp to the harness. the sub may not work right if the amp is hooked up wrong. check applicable fuses.

The sub works when I hook up the factory stereo so I know nothings wrong with the amp or anything like that. It's got to be something with the wiring that I did.
I'll post pictures soon. And thank you for the photobucket tip

I think I may have found your problem!

The blue/white coming off of the harness, run that wire to your amp. That's the one that will turn it on.

That's for the sub. But I figured it out. I had to solder the blue/white remote wire to the regulator. Sub works now, woo!

Are you using an aftermarket sub?
Nvm. I read back.
