    Thank You Parts Express for your excellent products, customer service representatives, and technicians for all that you do!!!

    This project was fun and expensive but I wouldn’t change anything if I had to do it all over again. What isn’t mentioned above, is that I am using a Crown XLS-2500 powering up the beast. I also used a Soundstream Epicenter to boost the pre-amp signal to about 7V to maximize the Crowns potential. I have roughly $2200 invested and love every bit of it. It brings Call of Duty on the X-BOX too life. “just ask any of my neighbors”!!!!!
