Got a Tint and my System Today!

Yeah, So I spent $65 and got my car tinted, Limo Tint all the way around, it looks spiffy smile I also decided to spend $400 and get myself a system. I got 2 12" Audiofonics 800w subs and an Audiofonics 1500w amp, also got myself a JVC head unit to go with the bundle. the only drawbacks I've had with this, is now I need to buy a new battery, since while installing my system I completely DRAINED my toyota battery and now it won't even keep a charge. I'm going out tomorrow and will buy an Optima Red-Top gel Battery and that's when I will take pictures for you guys, in the sunlight since it was dark when I finished this project about 2 1/2 hrs ago when I started around 7pm, took a while, I also need to buy a mounting kit for the head unit.

Lots of stuff still needs to be done, but I will definately get some pictures for you guys tomorrow.

Your wiring may be off or all the extra strain on the battery could have fucked up your alternator. You should check that out. Congrats on the system
