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.
