    amp going into protect mode. Help!

    I am a bit confused - how does a speaker "misfire" ?

    amp to factory radio?

    The cleansweep is not needed if your OEM headunit doesn't alter the sound any (like a 6th Gen Accord)

    Tweeter upgrade?

    bateman balls are good for eliminating early reflections. the cancellation will only occur at the crossover point and small freq spectrum around (maybe 1/2 - 1 oct or so), where the two speakers are playing the same frequencies at a high enough level to matter.

    Tweeter upgrade?

    Where did all the center channel stuff come from ? I do not see any post in this thread even mentioning it (other than yours). 3sixty is pricey and has it quirks

    H/o Alternator ?

    I was going to say, if you are running the entire power thru the switch you WILL burn it out again. Relay FTW

    having lower extension and needing less power does not sound like a poison - maybe the bigger box required is the only drawback.

    OEM tweeters

    I tried tweets in the sail panels ... because the dash on the passenger side juts out so far I got two center images - one in the middle and one just above the glove box latch.

    8ohm speakers louder?

    those types of speakers are very efficient but you have to use them in the right way.
