Thumbs up 1st Impression of new sysytem

Just finished up the install of ny new stereo system... Yea, it kicks ass!
Only got to hear it in the garage as there's mucho snow in the Boat.
The System; stock HK head unit with front & rear preamp outputs added and rear fade function activated by Iron Cross Audio, JL Audio C3 components up front, powered by a Hawg Wired RS400 amp, CycleSounds lids with Hertz HCX690, powered by another RS400. Still waiting on the HW remote to dial it all in.
Replaced the Arc Audio amp with the HW up front - Wow what a difference, much fuller sound. The Hertz are killer! Great bottom end.
Time consuming install, used heat shink all connections, power and rear speaker lumes. Couldn't have been more than 10 trips to Napa.
Gonna be trailering it down to Denver next week for the rest of my winter mods to get installed, so I'm hoping to get a few hours getting to hear the tunes on the road.

I guess you could call it 6, the tweeters are sepeate, but I consider it 4. The amps are 400 watts if run in a 2 ohm configuration, I'm running them at 4 ohms, so it's 100 watts per channel, so 400 watts total. But it sounds like a very clean 400 watts!

One on each side of the fairing behind the glovebox, towards the front of the glovebox and at a 45 degree angle, to make the connections easier.

ahh-ite ,...
Did you , when you hooked up ur front speakers , come off the wire already hooked up to the front main speaker for your tweeter, or did you run a seperate wire off the amp for the tweeter?
Or,...did ur speakers for the front , have a 3 terminal post? As in just hook it up like , regular, then ur tweeter runs off the 3rd post?
