  1. I had that happen at Taco Del Mar yesterday. Never again.
  2. I bought a used Silverado truck with 200k miles on it to be a hunting rig. I put Royal Purple in it and that V8 purrs like a kitten. I can sneak up on people in parking lots. Synthetic oil is the friend of high mileage vehicles. Watch out for 99-06 Chevy's. High mileage Chevy's from this era exhibit pump rub in the transfer case.
  3. People's misperception of what it is that we do. They think its all idiots blasting out their windows at intersections. With no understanding of cabin gain and what it does to the sound or that a car stereo can actually sound good, not just be loud. I got loud enough 17 years ago and have spent the time until now trying to make car stereo sound better, not just get loud. Try to tell people about the subtleties of car stereo and how enjoyable it can be and they glaze up and get all kneejerk reaction about it, never stopping to ask me what I know.
  4. Router (woodworking) recommendations

    Porter Cable FTW. The on/off buttons are really convenient.
  5. Cool Eotech. I love my 512. Put it up top of my Stag Model 2 with a YHM riser mount.
  6. You need fuses. Fuse every hot point, close to it's origin.
  7. I think you will be pleased by the sound of a properly amplified front stage.
  8. Bass fishing?

    Sound. Style. Bass.
  9. That is good news! I hope they slam dunk that loser.
  10. Replace your windows and inject Hilti foam in the gaps around the edges. I'm in the same boat with a poorly insulated house. My brother properly installed/replaced the windows and doors, did the Hilti foam treatment and now the house is much warmer. Blown-in insulation is also a good option. Good luck, I know how winters can suck...I live in Montana.
  11. Electrical upgrades are recommended. At least upgrade your big 3/4, but a new alt and more batteries never hurts if you plan on supplying steady voltage and current to a big ass amp that is pushing those monsters..
  12. My favorite part of this build is the fuzzy dice and the oddly shaped, improbable trailer hitch.
  13. Already doing some surround damage with no amp! Epoxy?

    I built a special wooden plate that has holes where you can put through mounting screws. The plate goes over the speaker and protects the surround and cone from inadvertant slippage. Once your done, you simply remove the wooden plate. Sorry about that surround. I think we've all done that once..
  14. Are you planning on installing coaxial speakers in the doors? Because they have a built in tweeter. Component sets include tweeters and a convenient xover, should you go that route (recommended over coaxials by me). If you install supertweeters as well, you will effectively have 6 tweeters shrieking away, doing weird things to the soundstage and generally making a whole lot of ear-pain-causing high end noise/sound. Suggestion; skip the supertweeters altogether, get a good set of components for the front stage, forget about the back for now. This will save you money for other stages. Go from there if 100 watts rms to a side isn't loud on a good set of well installed components.
