Not sure where they get all their info, but I've gotten tons of info from this site! Complete lists of vehicle-specific wiring diagrams, info about relays, and a bunch of other stuff. Great site in my opinion, and is at the top of my favorites list!

i have been collecting links for a while so some of these may have expired lol. but for these 2 links the same equation applies. sqrt (rmsxohms)=output voltage of amp to set with a voltmeter.

The one with the "Amperage Draw" is a load of BS, and does not consider multiple things.

The first thing that gives it away is the fact that he uses Amperage in the title. @[email protected]

Though, some of those enclosure links are nice.

Development

Sega's 27-member Away Team, comprising employees from hardware engineering, product development and marketing, worked for two years to design the Sega Saturn's hardware. The Saturn was a powerful machine for the time, but its design, with two CPUs and six other processors, made harnessing this power extremely difficult. Also, many of the ancillary chips in the system were "off the shelf" components,

There are alot of good sites out there to learn the basics before spending alot of money. I recommend reading Crutchfield for the mechanics of things, but a simple site is http://www.carstereobasics.com
Glad you could spam your gay ass site.

My wife has finally convinced me to put in a new stereo and speakers in her car. That is done. Now she wants me to add an amp to the set up. Does anyone know how I would bridge the amp to the existing one? Is there a kit I could by or do I need to splice into the factory harness? It is a 2004 chevy Impala ls.
