cool thanks, I'll look for the alpine quick disconnecting amps. The grass is always greener on the other side. My car might look nicer than yours for some people but there'll always be people who'll prefer yours over mine. If I were to take my car back to Japan it wouldn't be as nice compared to other modded skylines. I just like it when people do projects themselves. Where you can see how they got creative and worked around problems. Plus there's that huge sense of satisfaction when you built something yourself. If something looks/feels/sounds wrong you'll most likely know what it is. I do have a nemesis though.. electricity. I can't seem to wrap my head around vehicle electrical system and audio systems. The basics I got down but nothing further than that. Plus I get a little intimidated when working with electrical stuff since I was electrocuted several times throughout my life. No fun.
I'll also see what I can put together when I install the Easycar system. I don't do videos too much. I usually keep a picture journal with write ups of projects. My engine rebuild journal is already 45 pages long and it's only 3/4 finished. I only have one video with that write up and it's only when I first started the engine after everything was rebuilt. I plan to do one with my infotainment/pc/audio system too.. I'll detail the easycar piece so you can see what you're getting if you wanted to buy one as well. I wish there was a paint shop I could use over here so I can paint my car myself too. I painted the engine bay and it seemed pretty easy. Just need a steady hand, keep the paint even and don't let it run.
Do you know anything about low profile subs? The ones where they're not so thick? I read some reviews that they put out decent sound. Those would really be ideal for me especially if I'm going to be taking them in and out every now and then. I'm thinking about putting up my old system on e-bay and buying a new system with up to date amps and speakers. All of my stuff is over 8 years old... still sounds good but might as well update that part of my car since everything else is getting a cleaned up. I'll probably start with the PDX-V9.. you sold me lol. and work around that. Is there a specific brand of speakers that work with alpine amps? I see you're getting JL.. good reviews. but I also see that infinity and a few others are just as good. Is it just personal choice or is there some hidden "know how" that sways you one way or the other? I don't want to buy any other component that cost as much as that amp though and I'd probably couldn't finish the audio system piece until after August when I saved enough loot.
