    Two 2-channel amps (one for OEM Speakers, the other for the sub)
    JBL 12'' sub
    Xenarc 7 inch touchscreen
    Custom made bezel (thanks Janus)
    IBUS Interface (steering wheel control)....a must
    GPS Mouse
    USB Hub in the Ash Tray
    Ikea Key Box


    And the following Software:

    nlited Win XP Pro
    Roadrunner (thanks for the skins CDRSkull)
    IBUSCOMM to translate the ibus signals and interface with RR

    the thing is I had the amps lying around from two previous installs....so they were basically free......

    as for the power, its more than enough to power the OEM speakers and the sub.....i dunno if its worth the money, since you dont really see them.

    What do you think about opening them up and putting plexi over them???'

    any suggestions welcome.....thanks for the props though

    for such cheap amps I wouldn't open them up and put them on display....you would probably be highly dissapointed in what you would find inside...as in nothing

    a lot of cheap companies like that will put a 'brick' in their amps to make them feel heavier than they actually are and to take up space....why? because in general better amps have more stuff in them so they weigh more....

    I'd just work on getting new amps and new speakers....lol

    Why should he change the amps if they work ok with the setup?

    Nice install, the bevel on the screen is awesome

    You shouldn't

    Imo it's a waste of money to replace a couple amps that do a fine job (even thought they're cheap) Bettter spend that money on something else. Not to mention, amps are for sound, not looks..
