1) I have not bought a deck yet. Are there any features a deck must have so that I can connect my sub to it (e.g. I have seen some that have a "sub out" feature, is something like that necessary?)? Basically, I am on a tight budget and would like to get only what is necessary, nothing special.
2) I have no additional wiring other than what came in the box with the sub, which appears to be small wires that plug into the back of the sub. What else must I get in order to get the sub connected?
Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.
Welcome to the Bazooka Forum. You can connect to the factory headunit simply and easily by purchasing the FAST-9999 and the FAST-BTAH. The BTA8100 has a built in crossover and subsonic filter so you really do not need to purchase another headunit, and this will serve both of your purposes; adding bass to your ride and only purchasing what is necessary. Please post back with any other questions you may have.
