Power wire ran




All stock wires ran to the new sub and high level inputs on the amp


Amp installed


Wires cleaned up




Sub installed


All and all I was impressed with the quality of sound that the amp and sub were producting as they were getting high level inputs.

you ever try to convince these people to get better gear or you just simply provide your services?

shh...we all do suck! dont let the secret out! ;)

i have done stuff like this in the past, flying out...i think hes providing a service at a cost that cannot be matched by local shops and not to mention hes a known quantity on the Z forums.

There are a few BUDGET builds that only wanted better sound and did not want to spend a lot. Anything is better than the factory crap in these cars.

It is not that they all suck it is that they can not be trusted in the words of my customers. They drop their car off to either a shop that has never done a Z before or trusts that their guys will do things right such as running new speaker wires, I can not count the times I have redon a shops install and they told the customers they did something but it was either never done or done half a$$ed.

I have done over 30 370z's and the owner of a 370z forum and he put his own recommendation about me out there. My wiring for instance is soldered and than marine grade heat shrunk. Some would say that is not needed but it is what my customers are looking for. The little details that make me wanted.

Fiberglass is not what they wanted, I supply what the customer wants.

I have done fiberglass before that is not a problem to me.

Also this is not the first time I have been flown to California it is the second.:D

You have to also understand that this is a family thing as well. As noted I am well known on the 370z forums and that is yet another reason I am sought after.

I dont know the name of the color, but the first car at the beginning of the thread is my favorite color on the 370.

As someone else mentioned, I was hoping they would choose better equipment too.

I'm not sure why everyone is ragging on the choices of product? Polk makes great speakers, Boston and JL amps, Alpine and Pioneer screens? Where's the bad product? Just cause it isn't Hybrid and Mosconi doesn't mean its not good product. And as he said, it is a MUCH better choice than the factory stuff.
