Default poor decisions in audio equipment purchases

At the time Rockford Fosgate was quoting their Power Series amplifiers with about half their actual power rating in the specifications. So, if you're looking for a 50W x 4 amplifier, double check the overall physical dimensions before ordering. I also got a set of Rockford's Fanatic Q component 4" + 1" tweeter + external crossover.

Previous owner had gutted behind the dash so the side air vents were just a facade, the tweeters fit in just right.

The giant amp stayed in the car until about 2013, taking up a huge amount of space in the trunk. It sounded great with the Power series 6x9's in the rear deck and the 4" speakers in the front doors. I also welded in some steel plates to help reinforce the factory installation location in the door frames since the metal is thin there and it helps to get the speaker away from the window so it doesn't scrape the tinting.
