All and all a great system for being on a budget. The owner who works for a used car dealership has seen some of the worst audio installs ever. He was worried about this happening to his vehicle. However he was not only blown away by the quality of the install but the sound of it as well. I was very impressed myself with the polk mm 5.25 speakers. VERY CLEAR FOR THEIR SIZE!!!

As always please ask any questions and please leave comments.

Matt, I'm powering an eletric pump controller/pump. The pump is 14 awg, and plugs into the controller, then the controller power is about 10 awg. Is there a pickup somewhere on the Z that I can use to power it other than directly from the battery? The pump is on the exterior back of the car where the muffler can used to be, and the controller is in the spare tire well. I was considering running the power under the car on the outside (to the battery if I have too). I haven't decided.

Also, what is your opinion of distribution blocks, and when they should be used?

Not that thick for stock. I would run a relay that way you can run any gauge directly form the battery. use something like your 12 volt plug for the switching on and off source.
