Default WALMART ROCKS!!!

Well as the title states I love Walmart . How this is starting out sounds like it belongs in the Off topic section but i have reasoning.

so i went there today just to see what i could find to install my amp. i know theres a car audio section but i never really paid too much attention to it but i did remember seeing a scosche battery terminal. so i checked and found just about EVERYTHING i needed for, i think. a pretty reasonable price.

i know the norm is 4 ga or bigger but its actually 5 ga weird... but i think its good because its a 4 ch amp kit meaning i wouldnt have to pay extra for another rca wire and theyll both max haha
and i need the output converter because im using my factory radio and i need the rca outputs
how big is your audiopipe?

My friend's boat recently had the Main Starter Fuse go out on it and we went down there to good ol' wallyworld and bought one of those skosch fuse casings but needed the wire too, so off to home depot for a $2.00 piece of oil/fuel resistant wire, then over to checker auto parts for a 50 amp fuse (wallmart only had that fuse available in a whole kit) then back to the boat, we wired it all up and now he's got a nice easily replaceable fused link! The reason this story is so great is that we started our search at about 7:30 at night and had to stop at 3 different stores but walmart was the only one open that had that inline fuse holder available. so yeah walmart is pretty cool but not cool enough....

Yep same here with the Best Buy stuff. I even paid for installation and an extended warranty too. That was back when I was 15 and didn't even have my license yet. I've used the Scosche wiring kits for 3 or 4 cars and they hold up. Wire is wire as long as its stranded copper wrapped in insulation.
