    Not usually. Look into AudioTechnix and KnuKonceptz, they are the size they say they are and have good prices.

    Sub- 2 12" zcons
    enclosure- in the works
    Sub amp- aq3500
    Alt- 220 amp
    Batts- 5 c&d 75ah and 1 bt-80
    Wiring- 4 runs of 0 awg and big 3

    I guess I worded that wrong. The cheaper ones have a BIG difference (such as the Boss kits which are about as crappy as their amps), but the more expensive kits aren't any better than say AudioTechnix or Knu which are very reasonably priced.

    still not true , some of the better wire uses better grade copper and more strands.
