At their height they controlled parts of the modern day area of Azerbaycan, however, it was mostly a frontier region were battles were fought between Khazars and other powers. However, the Khazar presence wasn't as heavy or influential as the Oghuz Turks were in the Azerbaycan region.

This is true but the point here is that they are the most influential Turkic presence in Azerbaijan before Oguz's.
 
Before Khazars there was even Huns, but i doubt any serious settlements.
 
The thing is that the Turkic history of Azerbaijan Republic begins right after destruction of Caucasian Albania kingdom, a native Caucasian kingdom (Christian too) wich resised in modern day Azerbaijan. And it was Khazars whom destroyed Alban kingdom, in 7th century.

So basically, if not for Khazars, Azerbaijan Republic probaly would still be called Caucasian Albania with a Christian religion and a ethniticy related to Northern Caucasus.

So yes, Khazars have probaly played the biggest role in Turkic formation of Azerbaijan Republic.

Depends how you look at it, also I heard the Mountain Jews may be related to Khazars, haven't really studied it though so not sure at all.

What do you really mean?

Cause part of Azerbaijan stretches to North of Big Caucasus Mountain range.

the core of the Khazar empire was North of the Caucasus like Itil and Sarkel. and after the Arab Conquests the Caucasus was the frontier bewteen the Khazars and the Caliphate, so i think it's unlikely that Khazars controlled territory south of the Caucasus. besides there were also independent Caucasian states at that time.

my comment has nothing to do with Azerbaijan, i'm fully aware Azerbaijan has territory north of the Caucasus.
