    Thanks, I have to buy a capacitor for it though. When the bass draws my lights dim. Then to a 3g alternator, then maybe I'll buy some 12"s.

    Nice Cougar. Always nice to have another Canadian cat owner around. I'll tell ya what that car needs more than capacitors, 3G alternators, or bigger subs, though:

    Wheels. Those 14" spoked hubcaps gotta go Get yourself some nice 10-holes or turbines. It'd look like a whole new car

    Believe me I want some new ones but these damn 4 lugs!

    All of the junkyards want too much. Did anyone notice my rear tires?

    Indeed they are. The good thing is that the rubber is so soft I get to squeal the tires when punching it.
