Q&A Section

Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
I don't like stock systems, I want to be in the music.

What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
My speaker box and amp switch.

Why did you choose these products?
I love the Audiobahn Flame series but I don't have a box big enough to show them off yet. Everything else was conveniently priced at the time I had cash.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Running the wires!

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
Upgrade the speakers to 6 1/2's.
