    possible window damage?

    so a few days ago i was telling a friend about upgrading my audio system.

    the first thing he tells me is not to make a custom plexiglass enclosure or to put plexiglass anywhere near the subs. the reason being, is that it will "blow out my windows"

    im planning on running roughly 3k rms. as long as i dont CRANK the gain or volume i should be fine

    can somebody back me up with this? i believe hes just talking out of his ***

    the likely hood that you will have issues with your windows is very very very very minimal.....and that is being generous.

    If you read the kicker reviews on crutchfield, those subs alone blow out all kinds of people's windows. lol

    I had a guy tell me he could blow out his windows with just 2 12s... then I gave him a full tilt demo to show him what it really takes to explode a windshield. He pooped himself and took back his statement.
