Connect the red power wire and the blue/white switched wire to the switched +12V. If the BTAH has the Auto-Turn On Loop, disconnect. Find a solid, verfied ground. Connect using the RCA's for the signal source and configure these outputs for subwoofer duty on the headunit if possible.

Default Re: FAST-9999 Installaton Instructions

Hello,

I'm hoping someone is around to help me with my new install. It would be great if someone could tell me what wire needs to go where. I have a toyota prius c and my wiring is as follows:

10-pin connector:
1) lite green (+) right front speaker
2) pink (+) left front speaker
3) red (+) radio ignition (remote)
4) black (+) radio 12V (battery)
5) blue (-) right front speaker
6) purple (-) left front speaker
7) brown (-) ground
8) not used
9) not used
10) lite green (+) radio illumination (parking lights)

6-pin connector:
1) red (+) right rear speaker
2) black (+) left rear speaker
3) white (-) right rear speaker
4) not used
5) white (-) radio illumination (dimmer)
6) yellow (-) left rear speaker

I've already tried the install but I'm not getting any power to the sub. I've got it ground to the chasis so I don't think its my ground. Can someone please confirm which wire on the fast 9999 would correspond to my wiring as described above? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello, I have a question regarding the auto turn on function. I wired the Fast/Btah connections up to my car, while the sub amp turns on it does not turn off when I turn the car off. Is the green light supposed to be illuminated the whole time. I just don't want to have that extra drain on the battery if I can help it. Thanks.

Identify the constant +12v of the harness, as well as the switched +12v of the harness. Connect the red wire of the FAST to the constant +12v, and the blue/white wire of the FAST to the switched +12v of the harness.

HeavyDuty;

Thanks for your reply. I am running this to the factory amp in a Mercedes CLA. I thought I did wire it up to the switch wire. If I unplug the harness from the amp and plug it back in, the unit's green light is off. When I turn the car on the amp will light up, but wont turn off when I shut the car off. My question is, is it supposed to be on all the time or should it turn off. If it should shut off then i'll have to recheck the wiring. The signal wires are correct and everything. Just the remote turn on is what I'm having an issue with.

Thanks.

The green LED should turn off when the vehicle is off. The green LED indicates that the turn-on circuit has power.

Thank you. I'll have to check my wiring again to make sure that it's all correct. Problem is that this is a new car and the documentation isn't readily available yet. Thanks for your help.

Help 0003 Re: FAST-9999 Installaton Instructions

Hey Heavy Duty or King Fish or anyone,

I'm hoping one of you can help me with this problem with the BTA8100 with the fast connectors. It will not turn off when it should. We installed this in my son's 98 Olds 88. As is typical with GM vehicles the radio will still play with key off until you open the driver's door. Now with this new powered sub installed not only does the sub not turn off at this point but the radio stays on. Radio was turning off fine up to this point. When you turn off radio the sub continues to pop/crackle through the speakers.
We ordered the BTA8100FHC which has the fast connectors so you are not suppose to run a seperate power wire to the battery (I know lots of debate on whether this is good or not). Anyway, he has a Kenwood Excelon head unit so we plugged the RCAs from the fast connector into the back of the head unit. Then we spliced the red power coming off of the quick connector into the red 12 volt switched power from car wiring harness. Then we spliced the orange remote turn on wire to the blue- power antenna wire coming from the car wiring harness.
Does not seem to make a difference if we leave it in or remove the quick disconnect yellow on/off jumper loop from back of sub. I'm hoping someone knows where we went wrong. The only other wire coming off of car harness is yellow-12 volts constant power. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

You are most likely dealing with an installation issue, based on what I am reading, as well as if I am clearly understanding what I'm reading.

To begin, the red, constant 12v power wire of the Tube needs to be connected to the yellow, constant 12v power wire of the headunit. Next, connect the blue/white, switched 12v wire of the Tube, to either, the switched 12v red wire of the headunit or, the remote turn on wire of the headunit, NOT the power antenna lead.

Keep the RCA's plugged in, leave the High Level Inputs disconnected, and leave the Auto-Turn On Jumper, disconnected. This should clear up your issues.

As for the debate of a separate power wire to the battery. There are many factors that have gone into the design and engineering of the Tube, especially the BTAXX50 and 100 Series. Amplifier design, current or amperage draw, for these Tubes is legit, the real deal. Realistically, you are looking at a 5 to 7 amperage draw, which is very low. But then again, we are talking about 100 watts in your case. Therefore, there really is no debate. What's interesting to note here, is many other manufacturers are now taking the same course with power amplifier "packs" that connect the exact same way.
