Super cool!

I went with a 'sealed bag' from Amazon to store my tire plug kit, charger, etc as the debris and water was ruining everything in the frunk. The bag certainly works but I lost out on some extra space...

Re: Bavsound install Tutorial and Review (replacement speakers worth your while)

Fantastic thread, what a great job walking through the installation. I love the pictures and the close ups as well as the text you provided. Bravo. I installed Audison 2 way components (tweeter pods from Focal on the door card) and it went close to the same as your installation. On a side note, Deka...

Re: Safe 12V sources to tap for audio system

Great question and research, I like your considered approach!
