    from what I've been told, it's actually illegal over there to cut into the steel of the car like we've done for the kicks...not just a EMMA thing, but a legal issue?

    Don't know if it's illegal. And I do know some competitors who have cut the doors to, for instance, put in double kicks....

    Red and others,
    can you explain what is the reason/purpose of using twisted cable on the same connection like the one in this photo


    Isn't it the same idea of twisted cable in cat 5 network cables? But it Cat 5, it a twisted pair for + and -. Unlike this one, I don't know.

    Your attention to detail is amazing, I'm going to strive for the same thing when I do the Car PC this summer, I doubt i will end up with the patience to do it as nice as you've done though. I really like those blade fuse blocks, do you have a link to where they're sold? thanks!

    Matrix:
    The mid range and the mid bass are running a 4 wire twist. The issue here was mostly due to size. Using this method we're able to effectively use a larger gauge wire (when you combine the two) in an area or a screw terminal where we wouldn't be able to use a larger gauge otherwise.

    Hope that helps!

    The only thing that kind of looks off is the bolts on the 5". Are you going to replace them with something nicer like button heads or something?

    Everything else is

    Nope - those are stainless cap head screws.

    When the grills on the 5s are removed, you'll find that the screws used to hold the 5s in place are the same...cap heads. Only they have a groove in them to hold the grill in place. We used the cap heads in the back on the amp rack, to hold the computer in and on the fuse pannel under the hood. Same thing with the battery bracket.

    It's a theme, carried throughout the car.

    Oh yeah, it's the same screw used to hold the tweeter and 3" in place and it also holds the grills on those.

    The pic is kind of small, so I couldn't really tell. Maybe it's the color that stands out from the black?
