um...sounds good, but...pics?

Also, did you keep your factory speakers? I would upgrade those ASAP if you want decent sound.

Old school boss amps with the clear covers are some of the best you can buy. True todays boss amps are nothing special, but if they are ran within their limit then there is nothing wrong with them, power is power. Amps are nothing more then transistors, resistors, and capacitors. Don't bash on people's equipment just because you like to pay too much for your own.

Any amp can produce "dirty" power. it all depends at what level it is ran at. almost all amps do not do the posted rated power. overrated basically applies to all amplifiers with the exception of maybe zuki amps.
