Default installing a bta10250d in a '12 mustang

So I finally got the bass tube undamaged. Anyway what size wire should I use from the battery to the amp? And also should I tap the front speakers or rear speaker for the hi level inputs? Is this better than using a line out converter and rca's? Thanks for the info!

You will be fine using a 10 or 12 gauge wire for the power and ground wires.

Using the front speakers for the signal source is always the preferred method when using the High Level Inputs. Is it better? In a one word yes, as this is a verified high voltage source, which in turn makes purchasing an LOC and RCA cables not necessary. However, keep in mind that with some factory systems, connecting via the High Level Input can cause an impedance issue, which will cause the Tube and factory stereo to turn on and off intermittantly. When this happens, installing an LOC and using RCA cables fixes the problem.

Well there goes that idea. So what LOC do you recommend? I already started the install with 8 gauge which I'm assuming is overkill...lol. Anyhow I opted not to get an amp kit because the user manual said the hi levels were better. Therefore I just bought the power and remote wires separately. Oh well.
