That'*... not at all attractive, but very functional. I'll take "works great" over "looks great" any day.

And yeah, what he said. What'* the box made of, and what kind of insulation is that? Is that... a water heater blanket??

looks good, and sounds even better, especially if the butt dyno gave it a better rating.
