Mines in temps of minus 35 celcius, run it all year.

Same amp and sub past 4 years. Cept I just blew the sub the other night since I ordered 2 15's :D free air test tones ftw.

Yeah I'm from Montreal, Quebec and it gets like -25, -30C around here. So far I've been playing my system but I'm careful when its cold, I usually let it warm up a little.

Cold never hurts any electronics the heat is always bad. Unless your in the artctic and have a really ****** insulated car and it has to be pretty bad to freezover.. IM in toronto and its playying all year just i wait a min or two before i let it go :) But thats while im inside n the cars warming up. Even tho you dont gota idle your car long anyways some say its even illegal past few min.
