I got to ask what is the worst install you ever saw??? When it comes to alarms. I just got finish removing a alarm today from a car I just bought I belived it’s a BW 3000 all I got to says is damn they used 14Ga.clear speaker wire connected to the starter wire. Then they used the18Ga. RED / black red speaker wires you get with speakers for grounds,door locks and power. What a hack job they used solder and t taps and some black tape. Does anybody know who make BW 3000? Sorry about the first post.

the worst install was the dumba** who mounted a amp that I sold him on the firewall in the engine compartment. He came back and it was dripping with blowby oil. he wanted me to replace it he said it was a bad amp. I told him to forget it. the thing was so nasty.

!!!!! You actually had a customer mount a amp in the engine compartment. 6 months or so ago there was someone who posted on sounddomain that hes was going to do that ( i think it was in a dodge ram) the responses to his post were humorous to say the least! His reasoning for putting the amp there was that this way he didnt have to run power wire through the firewall. But he would still need to run the rcas and speaker wire through the firewall, which I imagine would more of a pain in the a** than power wire.

ha. a year ago this this guy had some ol ass beat up for escort in our shop wanting a deck installed. we starteda check when he mentioned that he had "boost" hooked up in his trunk and that he wanted to work with the deck were were installing. now let me tell you i work Pittsburg cali so we get all types of super ghettofied situations we have to work with but damn this guy had some old as fisher 15' sub in a home theater box with two what looked like millitary jubo, bearly fit in trunk sized horns painted dark green.not only that but he had two old ass lanzar amps just tangled in what looked like jumper cable wire for power and ground. We said uhh... this too much liability and we won't do it so he got pissed and said fine just do the deck. i kinda wish we tried hooking up to see how it woulda sounded hm....

My personal car I admit is pretty horrible lol
I always work on everyone else's car and make it all nice and custom but on my own car... I think I have bare wire just twisted together somewhere in there.
