Next time you come over let me know... we have our share of ugly stuff down here which we are working on, but we also have good things, good people and very nice biodiversity, beaches and mountains... Same invitation goes for everyone on the forum coming down, we can go for a ride to the mountains or the beach... surfing is great down here and some extreme sports, canopy, sailing, fishing... nice women too, just let me know


Thanks for your kind words, you are welcome to return anytime!

I have pioneers in the dash and sony xplodes in the wedges i believe. I got the wedges off of quadratec, the dash speakers at best buy and the wedge speakers for Christmas. They sound good and i can still hear on the highway w/o top and doors. They are all covered in mud now so the bass is distorted. Also one good thing about them is that they have plastic over the paper speaker so they are a little water resistant.

Its the seat, for me at least. Because if i sit on it i can pull it up straight, but it just goes right down again.

The speakers in the dash are 4X6s and the wedges are 6X9s.
