    no offense casanova but i fail to see a reason to compliment someone on the look of an install when they paid someone else to do it. albiet you now have a beautiful car, but i give my props to the guys who did the install. anybody with money can pay to have a car done, but there are those of us who regardless of how much we can pay would rather put our own sweat blood and determination into a project rather than paysomeone else to do it. congrats on the trophies and all, but they seem like hollow victories to me.

    i'm not tring to be a dick here but i just get annoyed by people who talk a lot but didn'd do any of the **** themselves.

    and to be honest i don't think someone that fits that description deserves to run something of the quality of polk, maybe you should have looked into audiobahn or sony.

    i'd have to disagree with you here - he didn't come in asking for compliments, he just said "here's the pics". and i don't think one should have to earn the right to enjoy good audio equipment; if you're capable of buying and installing it, in any fashion, and you appreciate what you've got, again in any fashion, i think that's enough.

    my main gripe is because of all the stupid little rich kids i went to school with, their mommies and daddies paid for everything they owned and the never truly appreciated it because of that, you appreciate it more when you work for it or do it yourself. that's why it gets on my nerves... same thing with all the kids with sport compacts that get the work done in shops, the whole thing started because some guy who actually knew what he was doing decided to make his car sweet, then a bunch of other people said "hey mommy, i want a phat ride too"

    that kinda bs just gets on my nerves, i pisses me off that i've had to work my a$$ off for the little that i have while many of the pricks i went to school with had their parrents buy them new trans ams, bmw's etc...

    i'm just a firm believer that you should have to work for what you have, that used to be what this country was about, if you work hard enough you'll get ahead... now the only way to get ahead is to be born to rich parrents... heck look at the braindead hilton sister for example, or that ugly little hoe nichole richie... it's a complete load of crap...


    *disclaimer- i'm tired, it's almost 1am, sorry for the rant but i'm posting it anyway*

    i kinda agree with both on this
    on one hand, you should do the research and find the speakers and stuff you want
    i would never be able to do an install like that, i dont have the materials, know-how, or equipment to do so...
    which is where a shop would come in...
    its kinda like this...
    if you wanted a faster car and you wanted to do some major engine work to get some gains...
    most of us do not have the tools to do so they get it done at a shop
    im "in between" on this issue
    I mean, i took my truck to a shop to get my front speakers installed, now i wish i wouldve done it myself, but at the time i didnt really want anyone that doesnt really know how to do it(another words...me) to cut holes in my truck...
    and my box was made for me...i couldve made that too...to tell you the truth i just didnt feel like it...
    but then again, all the stuff in my truck was paid for by me, not saying casanova didnt pay for his stuff b/c i dont know...

    mtxman - no offense taken, but i'm one of those kids whose mommy bought him a saab, and paid for most of the stuff in it. now, i can't say whether or not i'd appreciate it more if i'd worked for it all myself, but i can say that i truly do enjoy and am thankful for what i have - even if it's been freely given by someone else. i think the only difference between me and the kids to which you are referring is that i don't consider myself a prick :p. and i would disagree with your opinion on getting ahead - my mom was the seventh child of a family of eight that was just above the poverty line, and she's now a senior VP at a major international corporation. she did that all through hard work, and i'd like to think that i can accomplish as much if i apply myself, too. i'm not going to say that the money we have won't help - it will - but i think that anyone with enough determination and willpower, and that has the balls to go out and do it, can achieve whatever they want.

    Hey Casanova, this has nothing to do with the conversation above. How much did that shop charge you? Thay did a great job. I'm just curious on how much it costs for perfection like that!

    um, if you haven't realised, I'm a Team Polk member....meaning, Polk CHOSE ME to have their stuff in my car, I didn't go out and buy all the polk stuff out of walet, I didn't pay anything for their equipment. They gave them to me as part of sponsorship to have their products displayed in my car at shows. I go to carshows, win trophies, get in magazine articles and the whole time Polk benefits by having all the media coverage of their stuff in my car. Oh, and everything in my car + the car itself is still cheaper than an M3. I posted to show what can be done with polk stuff, to help people out there get an idea of what to do to their stuff and share with the polk community.

    of course I thank Polk Audio for my sponsorship and of course I thank my audio installer... I go to every show with JT Audio Accessories business cards and have them in my trunk, so people know who did all the hard work and maybe contact them so they can get some more business. I never meantioned them before because I was hoping someone asked first.

    I had a shop make the box for me for $1000, then had a diff shop, JT Audio, do the rest of the custom fabrication for about $1500. I got a good deal because of the ability of my car to gain much media publicity which helps the shop gain recognition.

    the mm124s should be pretty thumping with just the 1 amp.

    I'd like to thank Polk Audio and my other sponsors for their continued support, I got "1st Place VIP Performance Luxury Euro" at Hot Import Nights San Mateo last weekend.

    no offense dude, but if you pay $1000 bucks for a box it damn well should be able to stand 700 watts...
    hell, it should be able to handle at least the RMS of the subs its going in...

    I dont care much for the vehicle at all (it's ok, very few cars impress me), but the system and the over all cosmetic coherency is devine. Congrats on a sweet system and the tournament winnings. Enjoy.

    I said woah when I saw that car...the only gripe, like someone else said, is take off that speaker saying ___ peak power or whatever it says. Thats like buying a Boss amp that says 35000watts peak etched into the top. Besides that, I'm in love. Haha

    Absolutely AWESOME ride!!!! Even if it had a completely stock sound system, I think I'd be in love!! Beautiful color, rims, etc., and the spoiler actually fits in pretty well. The install, of course, is absolutely phenomenal, in my mind. Great ride!!

    Nice install and the shop does really nice work.

    I have to say that Casanova has also been pretty fair minded to not respond to the "negative" comments, by calling anyone a sh*tbag.

    Hey, the car is nice, your doing great things for Polk and yourself, rock on.

    hey thanks for the comments...

    I recently added a 7.2" monitor on the dash and am looking to get the new thinner PS2 to replace the normal one cause right now mine just sits on the floor on the passenger side. the smaller one should be easily mounted as it weighs so little.

    Hopefully I can get pics soon.

    took quite a while. It slowly evolved into the system you see now. But the last evolution took about 3 weeks. The box took a week, and everything else took about 2 weeks.
