Default Angel eyes

Well, fo Christmas Santa brought me some brand new Angel Eyes along with some Sony X-plod 200 watt 5.25 speakers. I put the speakers in yesterday and installed the angel eyes. Due to me running out of time I wasnt able to do the wiring and stuff for the LED rings, I will attepmt to do some of that good little stuff tomarrow. The speaker went in easily (aside from me getting fiberglass on/in my finger) and sound marvelous. The new angel eyes are BRIGHT, I still have to do some adjusting with the height on them but seem to work great. I will try to get some pictures up tomarrow some time. But I have a few questions about the angel eyes, does anybody have a wiring diagram of how the set their'* up? I am debating if I should just hook them up to my parking lights or if I should use a switch and wire them seperately(leaning this way). Let me know what you all think. Again, I will try to get some pictures up tomarrow depending on the weather.

I suggest using the supplied wiring for the angel eyes atleast. They're just 2 LEDs so feeding them ton'* of juice is a bad idea.

Good luck though! Just remember if it'* really cold you don't need those halo'* for a while.

Side note, I'm sure you know, those speakers aren't 200w. Feed them that, and they'll die a rattly death.

Yea, I won't fead them 200watts, thats the peak power output, i think its like 50 watts RMS. I was thinking about saving the halo'* for spring along with a new exhaust. Still debating it though.

Alright, i found a good ground. How do I go about getting the wires with the switch through the firewall to the interior? I know how to do the wiring and all for the LED rings, it'* a peice of cake. The only tricky thing would be getting the wire through the firewall.
