 a total of 3600W of audio! even the horn tweeters I use will use one of the loudest tweeters you can find. This will help get the clearest sound I can have when my convertible top is down...

 this build employs a lot of Router use. With all the dust it created, I found the absolute use of a filtered mask and this heavy duty canister vac!
