Can I add subwoofer to stock radio system?

Hey guys, I'm looking to put a sub & amp in the truck without having to lose the functions of SYNC and steering wheel. Is this possible to do with the stock radio? I dont have the touchscreen/nav radio, just an XLT. and if so, also looking on what box/sub/amp combo people are able to fit in this truck?! Thanks for the help!

Yes. Not sure on sound quality, I haven't looked into these things for a good 10+ years.

There are adapters that tap into your rear speaker wires and create RCA adapters to connect to your amp.

This is just one option, I'm not familiar with the new radios either, this could be a big no no and maybe the stock radio has RCAs.

I have tapped into speaker wires before, and the sound quality isn't horrible. (as long as your amp has a low frequency filter)

I thought there was a thread on here, about a guy who tapped into the factory sub? Let me see if I can find it.

I have a friend that runs an electronics shop that added an amp and subs under the back seat in my old 2010 F150 with Sync, and we were both amazed at how awesome it sounded. I'm not sure what he used to tap in to the factory radio, but knowing how particular he is, he did it right. Sorry I can't tell u how, but It can be done, and sound great.

they sell a converter that converts speaker wire to rca's and then run an amp and sub. Thats what we do generally in our trucks.

Okay, got a price on a custom built box, with sub amp and tapping into factory radio today from a Car audio place. $500. After the equipment, its only paying $100 for them in labor. Not bad I think.
