    The amp had 4 holes to screw down so it is screwed down to styrofoam (it aint going anywhere)...leads to sub help in by spring clamps

    Re: Where tap power for aftermarket amp

    Well I finally couldn't take it anymore and broke down and cut the three red wires to the mic's. Didn't take long to do it but I tried to go without cutting the wires. The booming from the trunk was simply just too much of an annoyance. It wasn't that it was too loud, it was just that I could always hear it even without the radio on, soooooo that's the end of that. Now its on to my DRL project which I am on the fence between aftermarket or OEM for the lower bumper brake duct covers.Any suggestions out there?

    You finally did it? and now silence? Mine sounded like I had a v8. It was like night and day after I did it. After my install it took a day and I cut the wires.

    I didn't cut the wires I just removed one lead from each mic from the connector at the amp. And never experienced anything. Now it's time to build a fiberglass box and get rid of the big wooden one I've for now. Maybe I'll start tonight. Was a thought and I haven't decided yet.
