Purchased the BTA850FH one year ago. I did have a question about wiring, that went unanswered in an email to Bazooka, and the forum moderator would not post on their forum. Here is the question:

Installed a BTA850FH in an '04 Grand Marquis. Made all connections in trunk with exception of the Remote Turn-On wire. There's is no readily available accessory power in the trunk. The installation manual mentions having an Auto Turn-On feature, but the 14pin Molex plug is missing any female terminals for the Auto Turn-On segment, and of course, no Yellow On/Off jumper loop. The Remote Turn-On wire in this connector is Blue/White, not Orange as mentioned in the included manual. Is there a newer manual that deals with the wiring harness I received? Is the Auto Turn-On feature on option with my particular purchase?

I did find a work around for this issue in my case, no thanks to Bazooka support. The solution was to solder a jumper between two terminals on the PCB.

Last evening, since my year warranty was up, I decided to try mounting the speaker in the rear deck. So, I disassembled the unit and mounted the speaker in a free air configuration. The result was it sounded MUCH better than having the assembled tube strapped in a corner of the trunk.

Not sure what to do with the empty tube. Maybe I'll send it back to Bazooka, and tell their tech support and forum moderators what they can do with it.

I have four of these in different sizes. One in a Honda Fit, one in a Ford F150 (fits under the back seat), one in a Mazda Tribute, and one in a Scion. They are easy to hook up and I think they sound great. Not booming or overwhelming.

The bass tube I ordered was simple to install and. Sounds good. I put it in a Porsche and it was fine. In a bigger car you might want to go a liffel bigger. But over all it rocks the car good/ thanks Pat

November 20, 2010 Great Budget Bass Solution

I have a MINI Cooper S so I do not have the most space available for a large subwoofer setup. The Bazooka tubes have really increased their sound quality over the years. This one comes with easy connection kit that mounts to any factory or aftermarket headunit.

If you are looking to have a nice full sound, this is a great solution. If you are looking for earth shaking bass, you will want to explore more expensive alternatives.

This particular bazooka has a built-in amplifier so you do not need to buy one. Also, it has the gain/level built-in to the sub and does not have a remove level control so if you think you will need to change the level often, you should explore other options. I have mine set to near max on the sub and adjust via the headunit controls.

This really filled out the sound in my MINI, giving the bass a nice thump. I think for smaller cars where you have space restrictions, this is a most excellent choice for people on a budget.
