My brother-in-law once hooked up an amp in his "hooptie" with the power wire going from the battery running towards the windshield from under the hood, then somehow had it alongside the windshield and into the interior through the door. Yes, the door was actually closed on the wire. I told him several times about the dangers of this, but you would have to know him to understand him. Being the know-it-all that he is, it ended up catching on fire with him. Some people just can't be told right from wrong.

i had a customer who had an amp installed at another store. the installer made his(or her) ground under the rear seat, and wouldn't you know it, they drilled into the tank. i guess it wouldn't have been so bad, except that the ground was loose and arcing, and you could smell gas while you watched the sparks jump from ring to car.

Have you guys seen the installs from this site?

Why does the Ghetto FAQ say you're ghetto if "you believe the Magic 3 upgrade BS" ? Does that refer to the "Big 3" upgrade everyone talks about? I couldn't find a link to ask them any questions.
