yea...i was gonna do 1 15 also but they are as slow as crap and the 12's sounded way better..i tested out these subs..the 10's 12's and the 15's and outta all of them the 12's sounded the best..the 15's are to big and need alot more to move...youd be impressed with 1 12"sub and a 1500watt kicker amp if you went that way!

My center window rattles a little too, im not sure there's anything you can really do about it.

I like the fans. I thouht about putting a couple fans behind my amp. I am still unsure on the placement of my fuse. The amp heatsinks don't really heat up the fuse eventhough it is right next to it either. so i don't know. I think it looks cool there but i would rather be safe than for it to go up in nice vehicle fire. any ideas on what to do. leave it? move it? thanks guys!

if you haven't yet put a fuse on the main power wire as close to the battery as possible, DO SO BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! some say within 18" (like your manual says), and others say within a foot... just make it as close as possible. i have my 120 AMP fuse about 8" away from the battery. after the fuse, then you can run the wiring to the back and use a simple distribution block if needed, etc... we can't stress enough how important it is to keep that fuse properly installed as close to the battery as possible!!!!

Install is clean. I would move the fuse ASAP, your playing with fate.

Haha. Thanks. Yes, I plan on moving it this afternoon eventhough I like it there. This is my first system so I didnt know about placement of it until after it was in. I also did the LED dash HVAC conversion. Here are the couple pics to my cardomain

Ok. I moved the fuse to the engine compartment. The best I could do was 2 feet. Couldnt do 18 inches. Hope it's good enough
