lately i have had no time to do anything with my car, so i go into a tweeter by me and ask if they could do the big 3 upgrade. the guy tells me he will call me back later on in the day. when i talk to him he says the installer knows what i am talking about and that he can do it, but he tells me its gunna be $300 and i have to supply the 0 gauge wire, i was like you have to be nuts it will take like an hour at the most and your dealing with maybe $50 worth of parts. i cant believe how much these places rip off people, i could never see myself paying someone to work on my car stereo.

You WILL NOT make a set a cables for lower than Gary's kit to make it worth your while. Price it out and you will see what I mean. Unless you have access to free cable, terminals, heat shrink tubing of that size, and all the other things Gary's kit has. Plus it will save the trouble of measuring cable and welding (literally ask gary) the terminals to the wire.

well i built my own and i am very impressed. i have only installed the battery neg to chassis and the block to chassis so far and i have no more dimming or power drop on huge bass hits. i plan on doing the last one but im trying to find one more 0 gauge ring terminal instead of buying a whole pack. the stereo sounds so much better. i would recommend everyone to do the big 3 and get away from using capacitors

I'd like to see how your cables came out too. Hats off to you for going against the grain and creating your own solution. I'll be doing the same exact thing.
