3) Green to the left front speaker +. Extended with standard speaker wire.
4) Green/black to the left front speaker.Extended with standard speaker wire.
5) Gray to the right front speaker +.Extended with standard speaker wire.
6) Gray/black to the right front speaker -. Extended with standard speaker wire.

Do you agree with these six steps?

I don't plan to purchase a line-output converter (that you mention) unless it is required/recommended. I had planned to go right from the factory radio to the amplified bazooka. Ok?

I don't understand your comment on a
"switched +12v". What wire do I connect where so that the bazooka is not recieving power when the car is off?

Thanks again,

Steps 1-6 are correct. No, you do not need to purchase an LOC, it is not required to complete the install.

The switched +12v (or key-on/key-off +12v) is the circuit responsible for turning the Tube on and off, not the constant +12v (main power wire). Find the switched +12v at the factory radio (if it has one) or find a source at the factory fuse box.
