My miles per gallon has gone down sooooo much. I usuallly average around 16.8 City and now I am getting around 12.9-13 miles per gallon.
It has been a long time since I have had a sub in my car. Is this normal? Is it the weight of the speakers that is taking my MPG way up? What could explain the sluggish acceleration? I have tried searching. Perhaps my parameters just sucked. But if anyone can help a fellow fanatic out, I would be greatly appreciative.


are your speakers like 18inch or something and weigh 300 pounds each?

Stay away from FedEx if you want your packages delivered in one piece.
