hmm yes whitey understood. also like everyone tells me two things.
1. get wot you pay for
2. dont buy stuff that was made on a monday or a friday
well i guess i could enter the unit in some competitions and see how far it gets.
i got my stickers today but my alpine is going on the front at the top and my calaisturbo one is on the back at the top and my other one street commodores is on the bottom of my back window looks mint thanks to the guy that makes stickers that lives not far from my place.
cheers

basically they are useless. some people buy them to stop their lights dimming which is just a waste of time and money. i believe they have shown to be beneficial in some big SPL cars, but for an everyday car, basically useless

well i was told, the volts that run from your battery drop over the distance and dont send the right amounts of volts to the amps which in turn dont run the speakers as well as they should, with this in mind they dont like that and i was told they start damaging your equipment.

I was also told that they charge up themselves from the battery power, and your stereo runs on that, not suckin juice from your battery, so you shouldn't wory about falt batteries!.

but i could be wrong, would be good for an expert to tell us!
