I have boxes for 90% of this and can provide proof of purchase for everything. Cheers, Steve.

  10. Yes beer and grub is always a result! Whats this Vectra all about - I was more impressed with the idiot in the Astra estate that managed to get cleaned up joining the motorway just in front of us! Steve.
  11. night time cruise? - come to swansea - thats where i am that weekend!
  12. You have it wired wrongly then - there should be a four pin plug on the end of a long loom that goes to your rear speakers - then you should have a converter lead that enables you to double up the two front sets of speakers, and put the rears on their own. Once connected correctly the fader should fade between front (dash and doors) and rear. Steve.
  13. The Rockford bd500 is renowned for shorting against it's own heatsink! Listen to the amp it's self, is it making a high pitched whistling sound whenever powered up? Check your solder joints also - if you've got dry connections the resistance will be massive and could cause problems. Cheers, Steve.
  14. 1. with this setup will my paseo pump Depends what you mean by pump, JL speakers are all good, although the 10W3 is renowned for SPL performance over audio quality, it's still only 10" surface area, so if your looking for earth shattering deep thunderous bass - get two more! 2. how much db yous reckon ill be getting Nothing special - sorry. 3. will this be loud enough Depends what you want - again it will only perform really well if its doing what it does best, 10" woofers do fast moving beat lines very well, but don't drop as low as 12 or 15's. 300w RMS is a fair power output, and with the JL / amp you will have no problems driving it. 4. will it be bassy Again, its good as far as 10" woofers go. 5. what specs should i do for the box WxHxTopxBottom = 376x353x154x260 Cheers, Steve.
  15. Take your villen lock off the steering wheel.....
