That's what most people do when they first try and get into car audio. They see something in Max Power and think "I'll do that!", so they trundle off to Halfords and walk out £500 lighter with a load of boxes of kit.

Nothing wrong with that, but sadly Max Power isn't especially informative when it comes to installs, so people naturally assume that bigger equals better, and then realise that they haven't really got a clue how to install it.

It is gratifying to go to some of the sound-off shows to have people sit in a demo car (not necessarily mine!) and then come out open-mouthed and start ranting and raving to their friends about how much better it sounded. As soon as people break from the herd, and think about how they're going to install their kit...they are usually quite shocked to find that they don't usually need to spend much more money, just buy the right products and install them well, to get a sound that is leagues apart from what they are used to hearing.

It's an addictive hobby though, especially once you see some of the nice, shiny things available!
