    The filters are OK. I ordered them from maxsaver.net, they also sell on ebay and have nearly 100% positive feedback, that with recommendations from a few people here in CZ made me feel quite safe about ordering the filters from the other end of the world...

    I have used B&H successfully the postage can be ridiculous but you can get what you need. I am having a camera body and lense delivered by Calumet in San Francisco to my hotel and they are reasonably cheap. Try sending anything to Slovakia, its terribly expensive.

    ya I am intending to do that but i still have no idea how to connect it to the extinguish speakers the car is wired up so i know where the power line and earth line are. I only want to connect it to my 2 rear 6by9 pioneer 460watt speakers and later a 1400W sub woofer :( am begining to regret this already :( any way I will hopefully be able to sort it out soon ...:p

    hopefully your not going to power it from the stereos power line if so all you will do is constantly blow the fuse..And possibly the sterio.

    You will require a separate power line that is fused and is connected directly to the cars battery.The + is connected to the battery and the - is normally bolted to bare metal of the car..

    This is the sort of kit you need to power up the amp.

    Yep wire the negative to some part of bare metal or under a bolt to the frame and run the other wire to the battery and fasten it to the terminal. Then all there is is attaching a control wire from the control port on the sub to a switch or if your radio happens to have a control wire. the control wire allows the turning on and off of your amp via the radio being turned on and off. This, as i'm sure you are aware, is to prevent battery draining while the car is off. After that run your speaker wires and the RCA cables from the outputs on your radio to the RCA inputs on the amp you are done.

    I install car audio all the time. I almost do that more than I put together computers.

    Cow_160483. do you know the RMS of that amplifier? I am thinking it is closer to 200-300W due to the size of it and the small fuses it uses.

    Just an FYI for the future, only ever look at the RMS value. Max wattage is absolutely meaningless.

    Thanks MIG ya i had already done some research on that and wired the car according to what you said above and actually foud out that its very easy to connect :p

    Well i dont really know how much the RMS value but will check it + i dont really intend to play music that loud just wanted to take advantage of the speakers installed any way will definitely keep my mind clear next time thanks ;)
