    Forget that! If you're installing a system like that, you want to run good speaker wires. Otherwise you're wasting your money unless you just want it to sound loud, not good. You end up with way too much skinny wire that way. Plus it'll never be quite as loud either.

    I was mainly pointing out that the factory subwoofer harness won't help you do that (plus it's expensive!). The main premise of my reply was "To do what you want without cutting or splicing the factory wires ..."

    Some people argue that the stock wires are thick enough for them. I won't weigh in on that debate. I will say that for different people there are different points at which they decide to abandon the factory wires and run new wires. The decision might be based on the power levels of the amps, as well as whether the person wants to go through the extra effort to install the wiring.

    I'll make one! I'm tired of being asked this exact same question over and over... Mod's, get ready to sticky it before the end of the weekend.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.
