    yes but the power cable needs to go to the engine compartment at some point..

    This is usualy done by drilling a hole in the firewall and using a rubber grommet

    in your case the amp IS ALSO the speaker..

    also DO NOT FORGET ABOUT THE FUSE ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    put it inthe engine compartment somewhere close to the battery.. like in the wiring diagram above.,

    Ahh! Drilling holes in cars, that would hurt me more than the car :O

    Maybe it would be an idea to buy from halfords and use their in store fitting? Costs 40 mind...

    $3,000 to insure your car, I bet thats got our American members shivering.

    I have to say I much prefer their system where it goes purely on the drivers record not age or type of car. A friend of mine on a gaming forum was 21 years old and had an original Mustang in a high state of tune. His insurance was ridiculously low!!

    Ooo err. 666 posts.

    I'm a beast of a poster!

    I hate the way that the government and insurance companies way of preventing accidents caused by young drivers is by putting the inurance so high you can barely afford it.

    My argument is if I bought a car now and it costs me 1,500 why would it make a difference if I wait till I am 21 when I am still inexperienced and just as likely to have an accident but I get cheaper insurance because im older. It doesn't add up.

    I'm in a similar boat to you, and just did my car insurance last week (for the 3rd year), and got the price down to 480, (550, but 70 cashback in 3 months time). Fully Comp, with MoreThan.
    Never paid more than 700 for fully comp. since day one, (that seems a long time ago now! )
    I know those insurance sites like the back of my hand, so drop me a line to see if I can help save you a 1000 or so (I'm not promising!)

    As for a 'bangin' sound system, scratch that; and stick a 1W moving head green laser bolted on the roof rack (you can use the money you saved on your car insurance to buy it )

    I actually stopped in one of the garages on the way home from work. This really has surprised me... There's a P reg Corsa B 1.4 5 door for 850 and I just got a quote and its only 1,845 :O The same as the 1.2 3 doors I was getting quotes for last night :O.

    As for saving me money, check your PM

    You know what better way to show off than opening up the boot and having a nice big sub woofer and lasers

    More Than are usually expensive. I was with them and got mine down from 490 to 320 with Churchill.

    I usually use www.moneysupermarket.com to compare prices though.
