Re: Full Audio System NO Line Out Converter

So you're running the speaker level output of the stock amp to the line level inputs (RCA) of the JL Audio?

Re: STD Rear shock and Nivomat side by side

I also noticed the Tow Package spring has one less winding on it.
I still don't understand why the non-tow spring would be heavier duty.
You interested in selling the old ones?

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

The one thing that drives me crazy with Sirius is the compression in the audio. If they could increase the quality I might consider renewing.
