For a 2014 Base Model MKZ Rear 6x9 Left, white positive blue-green negative.  Rear 6x9 Right white-brown positive, violet-orange negative.

This is from the amp to the speakers.

Integrate line output converter for subwoofer. I have the basic audio setup and wanted a little more bass. Is this not a good idea?

I don't think that works brother, be careful. I may be wrong, what's the make and model of the device?

2014 mkz base. I hooked up a PAC intelligent converter and cadence sub and amp but it did start to smell like the sub was running to hot but i may have the pos and neg crossed but that alone would not burn the sub up. Not much in the way of adjustment with that setup so not sure, it did sound decent. I have never used a line output before.

Is your amp a mono block or 2 channel.

Can you take pics of your setup.

Its not hooked up right now but yeah can take a pic. 2 channel cadence amp and sub kinda all in one. You could say its a powered sub. PAC PDL21 digital line output converter, very basic setup. Cant seem to find a pass thru the firewall to run power to battery getting to be a pain in ass, to nice of a car with 8k miles on it to fuk it up jus put 20's on it, looks sick very angry looking. Not sure if i can attach pics here if u want send me ur email jdhilty2100@gmail.com

I did not want to have to drill anything but no suprise. How did you install the subwoofer? I will try to post some pics.

For the subwoofer I had two enclosure made for two 12's on the rear side panels.

For the power cable I used a 4 gauge cable and tried to find a spot before drilling but that was the

only option that at least i could find.  Hopefully If you find a better way let us know for future reference

for someone else who would like to install subs.

Should be a passthru behind battery but i cant find it (fusion has one i know) also there is another one behind glove to the right but getting 4 gauge to run through it is tuff it also has wiring for mkz with it so not alot of room. If you leave plug out you could run 8 gauge but thats all i have found so far. You must be careful because air vents can get jammed moving stuff around back there.

I took the battery off on mine because that's what I thought but I really didn't see anything to fit a 4 gauge cable behind

the battery area except the hood cable but it definitely would not go through there.

I hope you have better luck then me.

The fusion has a plug\boot somewhere back there but I gave up on finding mine as well. Behind the glove has one for some wiring but its tight, you can leave the boot out and fish power wire that way if you are careful. Im finding the whole interior to be no so much fun and i have done alot of interior panel work, this is the most difficult to work with. I had a 2015 Benz GLA250 not half as tricky as the MKZ.
