The FAST-9999 and the FAST-BTAH both use 16 gauge wire. Please post back with any questions you may have.
Just for further clarification with the part quoted in the parentheses above, both the BTA850 and BTAXX100 subs DO NOT need to connect directly to the battery.

Both subs can simply be installed using the provided FAST harness with wire taps to be correctly installed and retaining the warranty. Basically plug and play.

Sorry for this slightly redundant question but the part quoted in brackets can be viewed 2 ways and I feel this is important considering the warranty could be invalidated if not installed properly.

No need to apologize, if you're not sure it is always best to ask.

As for the 2 ways to view what you have underscored, I don't quite understand what your concern is, however, let me see if I can hopefully clarify what I do think the problem may be.

When you are dealing with the BTA850 and the BTAXX100 amplified Tubes (and only these amplified Tubes), you can connect the Tubes one of two ways that will not void the warranty while providing a safe, secure installation. The first being the traditional method of connecting the power wire of the Tube to the positive battery terminal of the vehicle using a fused power cable. The second method would be using the FAST Harness System, which taps into the factory harness of the audio system to make the +12v constant connection as well as all the other connections.

I am trying to install the fast-9999 to my radio harness. The wire diagram I have says I do not have a accessory switched 12v+ wire. If this is true, what do I connect the blue/white wire?

Find a switched +12v source in the factory fuse box. What vehicle are you installing the Tube in?

Newbie here. Just ordered the BTA10100 for my 2012 Mercedes GLK350 with the optional Harman Kardon Logic 7 stereo. From what
I hear, everything from the HU to the amp in the rear is fiber optic. Also located in the rear, under two mats and a spare tire is a 6-7" double voice coil sub woofer. Because of its location, it is barely audible. That's why I ordered the 10100.
As far as power and ground, I'm good. I think.
What I want to do is hook up the FAST harness to the wires from the amp to the existing sub. Because it is a double voice coil, there are four wires going to the sub.
Can I use those wires to the sub and, if so, do I use all four or try to find which two to use?
Thanks
Bob

You will most likely need to install an LOC. Connecting the Tube directly to the output wires will probably see you run into an impedance problem. Look for on such as the PAC SNI-45T.
