Wiring for a sub-woofer in a 2014 GT with voice-activated navigation?

So, this is slightly pre-mature but I would like to have this figured out before my GT gets here. I currently have a kicker sub in the truck of my 07 mustang and would love to transfer it to the GT I have ordered when it gets here. But, I have a couple of questions.

1) I'm fairly certain (99.9% sure) that this will void my warranty. I've tried looking for warranty information but everything I google just brings up Ford's extended care plans. So if I splice in a sub to the voice-activated navigation how much of the warranty do I risk voiding? and is there any way around that? (dealership install?)

2) If I do go forward with this myself does anyone have any wiring diagrams to help me figure out how to wire it in? In my 07 it was a super easy install because I got an aftermarket head unit with the sub so I just had to find the right wire harness

Any and all help is very much appreciated!

Omg, it only voids the warrenty if the piece you installed caused the problem to whatever issue you are having. Just because you do something to your car doesnt automatically void it. If i throw a tune on my car and my control ams are messed up. It doesnt void the warrenty for the control arms. If you blow a head and have a tune and they find out that the tune is what caused it then your warrenty is voided for that damage. You still have your warrenty for everything else on the car unless they prove that what you added caused the problem

Unless you really mess up with instal and it causes electrical mayhem I think you will be ok warranty wise.

Alright, So I'm trying to actually wire in my sub now. I've looked through the wiring diagrams that are listed on here in the sticky (Ford Service Manuals - 2011) and I don't think that the colors are the same as what they were for the 2011-2012 model.

I was using this guide (2012 Mustang Shaker 500 Add A Sub Install - www.Evilcartman.com) on how to install it but, again, the wire colors are different. Any one have the audio wiring diagrams for a 2014?

Dang, wish I knew about the antenna when I installed mine, twice, LOL, I use the evil cartman method on the 11 V6, but just tapped into the right rear speaker for the sub input on the 12 GT
The 12" MTX with Kenwood Amp, bridged to 150 watts RMS is plenty for me, and that setup is almost 18 years old and still works great, had it in many cars.

What type of LOC did you use? The factory radios roll of bass (as most know). The AudioControl lC2i fixes this.

If you want good technical help. Put your Year, trim, engine, and PCM code in your post! Its easier that way
