    You need really need to increase your power by >75% to hear an audible difference. The human ear is surprisingly retarded

    I wouldn't add any power to your system. Like SourD said, just upgrade your electrical and take it all out when you sell the car. Half assed installs yield half assed results.

    The big 3 does actually make your car "louder."

    I noticed it with my other car. At one point I had the big 3 done, and then was taken out with the same setup. Made a big difference.

    Probably because saturns are piles of shit and your power and ground wires were in all likely hood 10ga or 8ga wire. You could have done your big three with a remote wire and would have seen results.

    I wouldnt say LOUDER but the bass definately did sound better/faster/more accurate after doing the big 3 (esp while cars in idle)

    No. You can remove it if anything happens. You are simply upgrading the flow of your recharging system. Right now its probably bottle necked.

    If anything adding subs & amp would void it before adding extra wire would.

    I'd be willing to bet if you did the big 3 and threw a yellow top under the hood you would be very happy with the increase of accurate, less sloppy bass. Loudness is kind of a personal opinion, and changes alot. Some days I feel like my shits not loud at all, and somedays I feel its TOO loud.

    I made a thread like a year ago about that.

    99% of people are the same way.. its the way our ears work, similar to alcohol/drug tolerance.

    That's probably true. The stock ground/power was 8 gauge.

    So glad that piece of shit is gone.
