    Worry l will not. Don't rush it, it took me at least an hr to do the harness and steering section to fact loom. Take a photo as you have, if it's no issue you 've done good. Pat yrself on the back!!!!

    Finished everything off tonight and put it all back together, sounds pretty good in the driveway but didn't listen to it for too long. Will need to go out for a cruise tomorrow night and really test it out, don't want to piss off the neighbours, but it seems like it will get loud enough to piss off the whole street from just a quick volume test.

    Tuning can take a lot of listening to acquire the correct sound for you in my experience. Depending on your hu tuning functions.

    I tweaked the EQ a little bit, turned off all the extra bass, set the HPF and LPF to 80Hz, set the DSO to minimal, drove it to work today which I rarely do, starting to sound pretty good to me. For $380 worth of speakers/sub/amp, couldn't ask for any better for the amount of money I spent.

    There is a lot less road noise with all the sound deadening, and I can barely even hear my exhaust (twin 3") so that should say something about how good the roadkill is.

    Some people may say it is deafness you are experiencing.

    Forgot to menchine set your mind range frequency to speaker rating also the bass to sub frequency so it doesn't sound unballeced. Then you could tweek your curve to alternate music taste on your presets.
