Ok, like ive stated in other post i jsut got a new car and i went out and baught a alpine 9830 and soldered and installed the thing. After i installed it i decided i wasnt going to wait to get new subs and was going to do a quick install with my old subs(just 8 ga wire) so i would just route the wire to my trunk without puting it under my carpet because when my 0/1 ga arrives ill be doing all that. Well first off i could get the face suround off of my HU so i could puch the two clips up to pull it out so i could install the rca cables and rem wire. spent almost an hour tring to get it of(didnt want to break it, so i was careful) and once i did(had like half my dashboard ripped apart) i finally got my stuff hooked up to my hu. Then i routed my wired to my trunk and then braught my subs to my car an amp and threw down my keys into my trunk(just so you kno, taureses dont have a trunk release and i only had one set of key) my grandpa shows up and leans agains my trunk lid and closes it. (this being an hour before i hafta be at work) so i turned around and had to rip apart my back seats so i could get to my keays and then put em back together because i didnt want someone walking by my car and have it looking inviting. By the time i was done with it and changed for work i got to work 1 min before i had to be there. And i kno this is pointless but i just wanted to say it anyway.
