Default Need some help hooking up a LOC

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I've posted here. I need some help.

I just purchased a new 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab with Uconnect 8.4N with Alpine system. It has and 8 inch factory subwoofer in the rear seat.

I plan to make a fiberglass enclosure and add a 10 inch DC lvl 2 sub with a Crossfire XP1400D mono amp. I removed the factory sub and enclosure and used wire taps to connect to the wires that connect to the subwoofer.

What I don't know is which wires to connect the LOC too. I was hoping someone could tell me a way to test which factory wire is pos and neg or does anyone have a 2013 sub wire diagram for this vehicle (doubtful).





Thanks for any help you guys can offer to me.

U do have the wiring diagram for the LOC correct?
Ur gonna need a 12v constant, 12v switched, and a ground correct? Or is this just for the "speaker wires"?

Use a DMM to find ur 12v constant (truck off and will measure around 12.2v)
Use the dmm to see which wire only gets 12v with the truck started (12v switched/remote turn on)

For the ground i recommend running a whole new ground wire to get rid of any issues or confusion.

If this isnt what u were looking for sorry

Might have to google search this one...even find a forum based on your truck. Had to do the same with my Tahoe trying to figure out what wire harness with the factory amp where it was located.

If the wires pictured (with wire taps on em) are speaker wires going to the factory sub it looks to me to be a factory DVC sub since there is 2 variations of green and white wires.
The wires with the lines on em will be the negatives, and the solid colored wires will be the positives..
Again if thats not whats pictures i apologize, lol

pin 8 gray with light green stripe (LH rear door -)
pin 9 green with yellow stripe (RH rear door -)
pin 10 green with gray stripe (RH rear door +)
pin 11 gray with no stripe (center dash speaker, didn't check polarity...I left it stock)

Thanks everybody. The wires with the taps on them go to the white 4 pin harness on the end. That harness then plugs into the enclosure that houses the sub. I'm guessing they are speaker wires, but I'm not sure. Also all four wires have a stripe on them that's what help create my confusion. Thanks a lot to everyone who posted!

Ok, I got it hooked up. The wire diagram for the 2013 is almost identical to the one twist3dfuc posted. The power wires are red instead of yellow, and that wire is constant power. I found a power wire to tap into on a different harness and its good to go!

Thanks again everyone!
