I have a question in regards to a Lexus. Seeing that you've done a couple, I am hoping that you can guide me in the right direction. The car in question is a Lexus SC430 and my issue is the singnal. My client wanted to keep the stock radio and didnt want to loose the navi voice. In keeping with that request i had to tap for signal at the ML amp and to keep navi i had to tap into the mid line after the navi amp. My problem is that I am getting hiss and grounding noise. The amp is ran Hi Level, so there is no signal summing going on. Got the client to budge for an LCi6 and a PPI Dsp. Do you think this would help me resolve the sound issue? I have tested everything and know that its no a ground issue, so im thinking it has something to do with tapping into the ML amp. Any thoughts? Anything help would be extremely appreciated. Thanks.
I've been beating myself up trying to write a review on a horrible install I got done here in Austin, Texas, for the shop review section.
There's a ton of details to go over, but I don't want to make the thread way too long for forum users, neither do I want to sacrifice a lot of the details that will take away from the whole unbelievable experience I've had.
It's a damn good horror story. You'd like it.
But, what do you recommend? Right now it takes 15 minutes to read. Too long?
Should I just quickly list my problems and question first, and leave the story for people to read if they please?
I'd really appreciate your suggestions!
G'day from 'Straya! Love your work, inspirational and all that . I am doing a simple SQ build on my girlfriends car (kind of simple but kind of no holds barred if you get my drift). I'm using Focal Flax FX speakers with both sides on -3db and the doors are fully BAM'd. Goes off like a frog in a sock i tell ya! Now I'm in the process of aiming tweeters. Now you've probably come across this problem before but I'm finding wherever I point either of the tweeters there is a pocket of high frequency that nestles itself up the corner of the drivers side a-pillar so I'm wondering how to get around this problem? Thinking about buying a dash mat?
Hello...I've recently joined the forum after years away from car audio. I've been reaquainting myself with the hobby and in the process have looked over many of your wonderful installs. I'm going to be installing my own system in a Kia Soul, and I wanted to get your thoughts on my build. I'm going for simplicity and sq, and you seem to favor the brands I've been looking at.
I have a Kenwood 997, and a set of Morel Virtus 602's that I got for $240 NIB! I plan to run the 602's active with an Arc KS300.2 for the tweeters, and another for the mids. I'm going to bridge a KS600.2 and use it to drive a single Ultimo 124. I'm going to use a JBL MS-8 for my processing. I mostly listen to hard rock, but also stray into other stuff as well. This will not be a show system, but I do plan on a clean, proper install...big 3, sound deadening, etc. I'd be grateful for your opinion on my setup.
