    OMFG it makes the Flux capacitor look like $h!+. I mean its bigger then my install. Why is there so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean I literally have almost the same amount of stuff (under exagerating), but maybe because he decided to put every thing in one location, where as mine is spread out between the front center console, the passenger seat, the rear center console, and way back of the car. It nice to see more people getting into overkill though, lol.

    PS: I need to go to AFKfest when my system is done, it looks like fun.

    you actually dont see any of it unless your looking inside the trunk thru the car. All you see from the trunk is the sub box and amp

    believe it or not there's probably 10-15 more components hidden elsewhere. HD radio, XM, gps, dvd drive, hubs.. all that. Its a hatchback you can only hide so much

    Have you even tried connecting a computer to your car audio system to see if it will meet your audio needs/wants?
    Honestly, you don't know what will sound "good" to you until you take a stab at it.

    And until you know what role the 3Sixty plays in an audio install, you have no idea how it could benefit you and your installation.
    Simply adding a high-dollar piece of specialty equipment that you say used somewhere is not going to make your installation any better.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    That's why i asked in first instance

    If you have time to flame on my lack of knowledge will you have some time to answer what IS good sound according to you?

    If i am asking is because I want to learn something new isn't it?
