    holy FAWK bro...really? this guy is the hack of all hacks man. I can only (and sincerely) hope that you're kidding....there are so many things wrong with his workmanship I won't even go there. And honestly it pains me to think that this is what you guys have to work with back home

    I didn't go through a bunch of his pics but from what I saw it looked fine..? Do you have examples to show that I didn't notice?

    I'd like to know more about car audio and the right/wrong way of doing things

    there's just too much man. General sloppiness is rampant.

    REALLY???



    We're advertising how we poked wire through the lock hole on a speaker tab and blobbed solder on it??



    Wtf is this abortion?



    Can't afford to use 24 cents worth of terminal ends on that xover?



    for optima stage height and imaging, we should put the tweeter as LOW AS POSSIBLE (nawt)



    and thats in 5 minutes of surfing. Its fucking embarrassing that he posts shit like this as if they're bragging rights or something. Almost dilusional....

    How do you know which lead is which? And which crimper do you use for those eyelid end and the spade connectors? I've been looking for a decent and inexpensive one, but I can't find anything that compares to Amp crimpers at work.

    you mean there's a difference between one lead and the other? lol. On that one the pic doesn't show it well, but one spade is smaller in size than the other. I've been using ratcheting crimpers for that sort of thing since day one...good quality pieces can be had at good electronic supply stores under Paladin name - about $50. You'll only ever buy one...the quality is excellent.

    What really alerts me to his 'quality work' is the caliber of his spelling and grammar littered throughout his website. It really lets people know that he's an educated installer and knows what he's doing.

    To this day... the work you did on the Olds was superb. It was never the loudest because it was never meant to be, but to this day... For SQ, It is the best I have heard!

    I thought I would chime in to a few of your comments.

    #1 I do NOT use crimp connectors at all, I hate how flimsy and cheap they are.

    #2 The solder joins you are referring to were done however yes they are not my best you are correct.

    #3 The picture of the wires is not a finished picture only showing the steps the install has taken.

    #4 The speaker brackets in the challenger you are correct the tweeter could be put on the top however I would possibly have to round out the bottom for the woofer which the customer did not want. Just direct OEM fit with no mods.

    Yes you can use heat shrink over the terminals if you wanted, I have not but duly noted that I may in the future.

    LOL you are correct, I write a lot of my work up in a hurry. I will have to take my time and refine a lot of it later. But working a full time job in IT, going to college, and doing this as well as car detailing on the side. I really am limited to my time.
