i actually had to purchase a 400watt inverter. the 110v outlet couldn't run the TV but could run the Playstation. ill post pix up tomorrow of the inverter. im trying to find a nice way to hide it other than under the extra trunk compartment behind the seats.

as for the alarm, i actually do not have one. i would think its very hard to steal the stuff since its all mounted and people want PS3's now a days and dont want PS2's. lol. well.. the area that i live in isn't bad. more old people around and all the crazy stealing is on the west side of phoenix. i will be installing one as soon as tax return comes in. just dont want a cheap one that goes off from the sound of a fart can.

Putting it a little frank, but i have to agree. You ever seen "it takes a thief"? They always look for unsuspecting people/places. You should at least tint the back window's, maybe a cover that goes between the top of the back seats and the hatch? Its an awesome set up, i'd hate to see somethin happen to it.

oh no... i agree with you. i do have the stock cover matt that comes with the car over it at all times and i rarely ever hit the system bcuz i always have my kids with me so its always low. but ryan didn't have to be a complete dick about it.. its not his car and he doesn't even know how much i spent on it. i only spent a lil over $300 and if someone steals the subs, which is the easiest, i can still get those for $20 a piece. and the ps2, just temporary. i dont even play it. ill be replacing it with a wii for car shows. :) that is one of the main reasons i flushed it in so that i can still put the Pontiac cover matt over it and you can't even tell their is anything in there unless i show you. :)

thnx man! still a lot more to come.

alarm will also be coming in next month. B)

i'm in the process lol.. i have like the bottom base and sides down for the perfect fit and shape, but i kinda have to wait as my car sits in a freezing 30 degree garage can't relly fiberglass till it gets warmer.. but i have the sub cut outs and the amp cutout done and ready, just gotta get some dowel rods and mount it all. once all that is ready i can fiberglass it get it goin. and i also have to figure out where to ground my amp since it's only supposed to be 3 feet away... lol that's gonna be tough.

damn! looks like you got some work cut out for you. as for the ground, i kind of had that problem with mine but ended up figuring out a spot to use that was only 1.5 feet away from the amp. that box was a pain to make but did work out at the end cuz i literally only spent about $340 for the whole system and material. B) (not including price for the tv which was $1200 after warranty) lol. my TV does NOT EVER stay inside my car. always will come out and even when i get the bracket done, it will be made to come out.

haha good i wouldn't keep the tv in there. if anything, i'd get a small tv to that you can fiberglass into there that would never be removable or able to take out. but haha my 2 subs and amp were 800 and i've bought wood and all the fiberglass materials haha
