    She looks like a lucky kid! My first car was a '78 VW dasher 4 door. Dang, a first car thread would be a good one!

    Well, I reckon a 4 channel would be the deal to run a sub and tower speakers. Let's talk turkey!

    Hey Kane let me add a couple of things from my experience for you.

    Tower speaker wire: When i first added my four SXT65's to the tower I already had 16ga wire there. Being in a hurry and not wanting to mess with it yet I left it and installed them and the Harpoon amp, Brian told me not to worry it would work. Sounded great. Fast forward to last spring, changed amps and such so while i was in there I upgraded to 12ga. Guess what? You could not hear much of a noticeable difference at all if any and even then it was at the higher volume ranges. Just an fyi.

    Sub and Kicker 700.5: If you change the sub out to a dual voice coil (DVC) sub you'll get around 400w out of the sub channel and that will make a very noticeable difference in the cabin versus a single voice coil and 200 watts. When i first installed Exile's 12" DVC sub and custom box I used the Kicker ZX700.5 to run it and it sounded good. Another fyi.

    Good stuff! I am doing the speaker wire now in case I or another owner ever go to a hybrid setup. I want to hide all the wiring inside the tower and eliminate some connections so I thought I'd go ahead and go to the 12 gauge while I'm in there. If I do change in-boats and subwoofer next year it would most likely be to the Exile stuff to match.

Let's say her investment this time around is much more than last time. I wish I would have saved the rims from the totalled one though. I hate the stock '99-2000 ones-- they're asymmetrical to me.
    Ohh yea i think i do recall hearing about that. Well then thats good if she is saving her own money and spending it on the car i bet it gets taken care for. I know my Neice is 22 now and trashes every car her parents give her. All she can do is whine and pout about her younger sister who is 18 has a bran new car, mom and dad helped her out with the down payment but she makes the insurance and car payments. Its not a fancy car but its new.

    I've been putzing around on my projects and getting a lot of interference with other stuff around the house. Here's some of the progress:
