spend thousands on equipment and time effort to enjoy it would be CRAZY not to have the electrical for it. takes power to make power and if you dont have enough your 2000 watt amp wont be 2000 watts. thats not even talking about dependability. you can nickle and dime your way to end up spending more than what you would had you just done it right to begin with, trust me i am living proof in my early days lol
