@ Jeffer HAHAHA Dude... great post.
Thanks for the responses, guys. As far as the carbs, I think I am going to rebuild, at least for the season, and see where I am at. I think it might be more of a vacuum leak now but either way, I have a full rebuild kit that arrived yesterday and I plan on rebuilding for a run on Sunday.
I found these things for the sub. Pretty darn cool.
and then another thing which, I think trumps out the amp. I know the issue with powered drivers going out (I've purchased quite a few pieces of audio equipment) however, I think price and space wise it's the best option.
