Because I will have limited access to the back of the stereo my plan was as mentioned go right to the battery (with fuse), ground out to a bolt in the back (most likely a seat mount) and then tap directly into the rear speaker wires before it hits the speakers because i have better access. The "remote" power lead from the amp would tap into the Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink that way the amp will come on when the radio comes on. We just bought the car so I have not had much time to actually get in and play around. But my biggest concern is getting it all apart and require some additional "stuff" Does the fuse holder come with a Terminal ring etc to bolt to the battery or will I need to purchase that?
The FAST adapter (FAST-9999) takes up very little space once installed, so keep that in mind.

The BTA10100 will come with;

10" wiring harness
In-Line fuse holder with 7.5 amp (fuse holder has 6" leads on both ends)
3 Crimp Butt connectors
1 Crimp On Ring
1 Self Tapping Screw

You will want to purchase an additional Crimp On Ring for the connection at the battery terminal.

I will post the installation sheet for the FAST Harness so you can see how small it really is. This may help in your decision and will make installation a bit easier. Either way you go with the Tubes, your making the right decision by installing a Bazooka.
power your system down
