I actually do feel a difference in transitions (left to right - right to left). It essentially acts in a similar way as an anti-roll bar, but to a lesser extent. I certainly can tell the front shock towers are locked together.

A lot of people dont believe in them , but i'm a fan of as much chassis bracing as economically feasible. I've had a strut tower bar in 6 of my 7 BMW's...including front & rear bars in my E46 325xi. I will always add one to firm things as much as possible.

A LOC is a Line Output Converter. It allows you to convert speaker lever inputs into RCA inputs for an amplifier. I've got mine running into a 300 watt Orion amp pushing a JL Audio 10" subwoofer.
