is there a highly recommended amp i should consider or does that not matter as much?a few more questions if possible..the display screen in my speedometer cluster isn't turning on... could this be due to the bad battery?
and..
theres this odd smell i can't pin point... definitely smells like a fume or chemically and its not anit-freeze or gas smell but i noticed that my battery doesn't have the ventilation hose that is supposed to be hooked onto the battery... do you think this could be the cause of the smell?thank you for your responses.
