MTX Amplified Thunderform 2012 F-150 SuperCab
All connections on the nylon Molex connector on the supplied power harness should be double checked. The ground wire pulled out of the connector with minimal force. I removed each pin receptacle from the connector and soldered the wires. The supplied fuse block that connects power MUST be checked for continuity with the fuse removed, ie should show no continuity. As I was hooking up the fuse block to the battery the end opposite of the ring connector shorted out on the negative battery post with no fuse present. I cut open the soft potting material and discovered that the stranded conductors on each side of the blade terminal receivers were contacting each other. I feel fortunate that I caught this for obvious reasons. When I removed the unit from the shipping material I noticed something rattling inside. I removed the speaker and found several small pieces of fiberglass. The vehicle specific instructions supplied by Crutchfield are awesome! The the high level inputs via the RCA pig tails make for easy installation, also when using the speaker level input via the RCA jacks the auto on feature works great. The fit is perfect, the black carpet exterior matches nicely with the black carpet interior. I am very pleased with the sound quality and the built in crossover, gain and remote bass control make fine tuning enjoyable.
Pros: Good sound. Perfect custom fit. High level input / remote on via supplied RCA harness.
Cons: The entire supplied hardware/power harness package must be mechanically and electrically tested before installation.
