how important is a capicator.? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

I've seen well over 10 alt'* in an Astro. But that was a competition vehicle. The most i've seen in a daily driver is 3.

Ok alrighty then by bye now.

Sorry for the argumentation guys,

Tim

no apology necessary, freindly debates can breed ideas and breakthroughs,

but really, that was no debate, more of a discussion of input

Yes it does, I was cutting up with all the apologies. I enjoy a good discussion
I just really did think they did more good than that.

Thanks,

Tim

i do not care for the ac as it will be a music car and the windows would be open for voice or sealed shut for spl and db drag. so no i dont care for or need the ac to work.. plus it dont work as it is. (needs recharge)..
