    Just my .02
    ahh, okay. I've been debating over both of them lately, and it's nice to get some feedback from someone who's had both.

    He's right... that Monster 0/1 is absolutely unbeatable for the price.

    I looked on their website, and it doesn't seem too cheap. Like $5 a ft, or around there. Where did you get yours from? Because knu has 1/0 for about $2/ft

    Re: First KnuKonceptz Purchase

    Update: NO issues with the RCAs as of yet. The rest of my install, though is an abject failure. When I reconnected the battery, now I'm seeing an Airbag Fault and I made sure everything was properly reconnected. Driving for a period of time after did not clear the fault. Removing and replacing the battery lead didn't either.

    Additionally, I couldn't finish cutting the baffles as the Cordless saw I got doesn't have the battery/motor strength to cut my boards, so I'm running with a sub and stock rear speakers ATM, but did test the front pair and they do work well. If anyone's in the Los Angeles area and feels like they can donate their time tomorrow for me to finish this project, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'll post a separate thread as well.

    Not sure where, or if the deal is still going on but they were selling that Monster 1/0 gauge for like 2.50$ a foot I believe for a long time.

    Hopefully someone has a link and will chime in.
    @neo_styles ; an airbag failure? that is very odd :/ I have personally never seen or heard of that happening.
    Good luck and keep us posted!

    what would the noise be sounding like? I don't think I've ever heard RCA interference.

    Try moving the rca's to a different location.
    Many head units put out a lot of noise as well...
    Switching the rca's out may also help.

    I've also seen people ground their RCAs behind the HU and have reported relative success with that.

    Forgot to respond to your statement about the AB failure. There's a wire harness that connects to the trim plate around the HU that isn't supposed to be removed. My friend didn't know and pulled that, so it's locked in until I can find someone with a VAGCOM to clear it or, worst case, fork over my soul at the dealership and have them clear it (anywhere from 40-200 bucks).

    Ahh that kinda makes sense, almost like the safety airbag system thinks it was in a crash or some bullish? Yeah man those dealerships will take you for all they can, unfortunately.
