I thought this might be helpful for people who aren't familiar with car audio or audio in general. I see it all the time, people always asking "Is this better than this?", "Will this be louder than this?", "Will 2 12's beat my 3 10's?" and i know this forum will prolly get alot of that so i wanna make this known for the sake of sanity. It's all in the install. you could buy top end everything. spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on the best equipment and have a shitty sounding system because you didn't spend enough time on the install. Install is everything. I've seen SQ competitors who don't have the mega high end stuff like other SQ people have but absolutely kill everyone else in their class because they knew install is whats important. Take the extra time in making sure all the wires have strong connections and spend a few extra hours bracing your enclosure a little more. your equipment, your ears, and your friends will thank you for it.
