    Maybe the misrepresentation of how much extra horsepower is used by a larger alternator or how it will affect fuel mileage. Often overstated.

    Cables matter - Good quality cables do not cost much and nothing to gain beyond that.
    Class d is a "digital amp"
    Class d has worse sound quality
    the "I have 300w (or another ridiculous number) playing through small speakers (tweeters, mids, etc). You might have a 300w amp, but that isn't what will ever be sent to anything but a sub.

    I always laugh when people think they need 12g speaker wire or larger to tweeters or even mids for that matter.

    Then there's the max current draw vs actual current draw debate. I've been running the same 100a fuse under the hood for 15 years now and never popped it but on paper I shoulda popped it years ago. Most people aren't pulling near the power they think they are on mids and tweets.
    Taking a break from car audio to become a better fisherman. It's paying off
