Would you guys do anything different if you were to do it over from scratch?
If you're talking about audio, I'm pretty happy with my setup, I'll post up pics tomorrow. I purchased of it at the company I work for... So if I decide to try something new, it's no a big issue.

The amp I've had for years, the sub I absolutely love. I guess I wouldn't do anything different except for replace the fronts with better quality speakers and add a 4-channel amp. Also maybe a Pioneer Navi unit. All on the "wish list" which is a mile long!
I can guarantee you with certainty the foster/fostex speakers in the si are pretty damn good.
You'd be surprised.
If you don't mind Google fostex speakers and just browse the kind of quality speakers they make.the amp is the weak link.

For those that don't know although has nothing to do with high miler.
Our speakers are by FOSTER thus FOSTEX why 2 seperate names?
Simple FOSTER is the oem supplier
FOSTEX is the retail public supplier.same company.
So for anyone interested in swapping to "better" speakers I urge you to keep em and amplify.or send em to me for free ill make some insane surround sound cabinets.I do have some folded horn cabinets I could put to use.
Just to give you some an idea.a set of 6.5 fostex in a folded horn cabinet retail for over 800$.
Granted they are a tad higher output versions but still.bet you all the focus st doesn't gave anything good in it LOL

What size/ type amp would you recommend to upgrade? I also remember you mentioning adding an additional set of tweets to the back makes a big difference. Again, recommend for this application?

Thanks mygand. I will make sure to put your update on the list of High Milers at the end of the month. Wanted to make sure I had the right month of your purchase.

FG4trout and you were really close in miles.

Going for your personal record? Or, going for a High Miler Club record for the month?
