    Or you can go the other way and just add a little 10 inch sub woofer, upgrade stock speakers and leave stock head unit. Sounds great and I will be able to hear my granddaughter at her recital.

    As for the rest of you Costco has a good deal on hearing aids.

    Gain-Mob If you haven't already you need to sign up for sign language classes. I don't think hearing aids are going to help you.

    I've got a dumb question not really related to your install but, how can you jump start your SUV when battery is drained? Do you jump it at firewall starter relay, and a good ground point?

    Wow GAIN-MOB, that is an incredible install. What alternators did you put in there and how did you mount them? Also, what have you got for batteries/capacitors now?

    I got a song for you to listen to for your system, no its not Bass Mechanic or anything... All I got is a pair of 12's in my Expedition and and old school Orion HCCA225 amp powering them. You went big time with your system... Send me a PM with your email, and I will send you a link for the download. Or just zip my file and send it to you!

    Its Taylor Swift-Blank Space... Hits HARD! Retuned at 27, 30, 33, and 36 Hz.

    Hey gang. So someone previously asked if the seat would still fold down with the the amp beneath it. Yes and No. I had to fold the seat to load a bunch of DJ gear in it, so I removed the car seat and attempted to fold it down. The amp was at a slight angle and stopping one of the bars from lowering the seat. A quick adjustment and the seat came down fine. Quick disclaimer - this will fully depend on the physical size of your amp. Too wide, and the seat supports may not clear the amp. Too tall, and the seat will not come down fully. Also, I wouldn't recommend pushing power to a sub with the seat folded down. Its going to cause the amp to overheat and possible fire/injury/death all that fun stuff.
