why do you want a bazooka? i was thinking about getting one, from the dealer its like $300. But at a stereo shop i found them for about $80. SO, it might be crappy. I would look into something else.....i'm getting memphis, when i can afford it. $1000 tops to my sounds and thats it....

I got an 8" Bazooka tube I just put in last week...well sort of halfass...But its working. Its just sitting behind the passenger seat right now.

I did it the simple route. Ran one power wire from the battery to the bazzoka tube. Grounded it at the nearest body bolt and used a high-low converter. Now, i am sure you are wondering about the rear hook-ups, right? Depending on how you are going to get sound to the tube is up to you, (High-Low) but as for the colors of the rear wires are found on the Smaller plug.
red, yellow, black and white.....I cant remember which is which but i do have it written down at home and can get that later tonight. But I think it is, +Red -Yellow = Right Side and +white -Black = the left...I will double check later when i get home.

Ok...so on the back of the head unit there are three plugs
One for power and front speakers, one for for just the rear speakers, and the other two are for Ipod, aux, and sterring wheel controls.

The small square plug that is for the rear has five wires.
Black, red, white, yellow and a small white wire...ignore the small white wire. Here are your rear speaker wires.
Right rear = Blk positive and Yellow Negative
Left rear = Red positive and white Negative
