    What you just read as a power system would probably run 2X what you have.

    It's just like *** though, you can never have too much of a good thing.

    Don't use the V12. I don't know much about the Video portion of car audio, but I cannot think for the life of that it would be good to use a speaker amp to power a TV. I think they just run power from a 12volt and another wire (usually a parking brake wire, but it can easily be tricked).



    New and Improved system:

    Alpine 7893
    JL 500/1
    Big *** Vented Box.
    Eclipse 4'' 2 ways

    All adding up to a new bigger number...can't wait for the new season.
