  2. 2014 Infiniti QX70S - Focal America Demo Car (Lots of Pics)

    Build Logs & Project Install Gallery
    In addition to using prototype speakers for this build, Focal also provided 3 new prototype amplifiers for this build. The new FPD Series amps look similar to the previous generation FDP amps on the outside, but they have made several improvements on the inside. We prefer to use metal to mount...
  3. 2014 Infiniti QX70S - Focal America Demo Car (Lots of Pics)

    Build Logs & Project Install Gallery
    Here is the wiring throughout the vehicle. The A-Pillars presented a challenge because they have defrost vents and the ducting to supply it. We slightly modified and resealed the duct, but kept everything 100% functional. We also did the tweeter on a slightly different angle...
  4. 2014 Infiniti QX70S - Focal America Demo Car (Lots of Pics)

    Build Logs & Project Install Gallery
    Since we were significantly increasing the amount of power for the midbass in the doors, we wanted to upgrade the speaker wire. Rather than drill holes in the factory Molex plug going to the doors and eliminate the serviceability of the vehicle doors being easily removed. We source the correct...

    Hey Guys. It's been a while since I've posted anything, or even been on the forum. I'm going to try to post up some builds on a bit more regular basis. Here's the first one: In August 2015, we were contacted by Focal America to see if we were available to build a car for them. It's always a...
  6. Southern California MECA Shows

    12 Volt Events & Team DIYMA
    I'm glad to see you bringing shows back to SoCal. We'd probably be interested in hosting something again, but we may be to far North for a decent turn out. Just let me know.

    Best of luck to you in your new venture Joe. We had a customer bring in some FB Components, they were pretty nice.
  8. Going 3 way active...need advice

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I'm not super familiar with the hertz speakers you have, but we have done similar setups and bridged ch 1-2 and ch 3-4 of the 900/5 for 150watts to each midbass. Then run the 600/4 to mids and tweets at 150watts each. Keep the gains conservative on the 600/4 and you'll be ok.
  9. Going active in a 2013 Miata?

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Definitely do your research. I think you'll find both those brands are pretty well respected around here, along with others. The New DC656 we did, which is a DC364 and a DC362 in one chassis, did 4 x 60watts on the oscilloscope. It's rated at 4 x 50watts, so it's doing 20% over rated power...

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    The Zapco DC364 or DC1004, would work perfect for what you want to do, amp and processor in one. Only issue you might have is they aren't small. Focal's partner company Mosconi, makes the Gladen One 120.4DSP that also has a full dsp built into the amp, and it's pretty compact. For separate...
  11. Replacing Land Rover LR3 head unit using factory Harman Kardon amp

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    Replacing the radio is absolutely doable. In fact we just did one a week or 2 ago. The audio system in that car runs on a fiberoptic network (MOST). You cannot retain the Harmon amplifier with an aftermarket headunit. Additionally, the Radio is the MOST network gateway, so if you remove it...
  12. PS8 popping in cold weather, potential blown speakers

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    This is exactly one of the issues we had with our ps8's. We documented our experiences at length with Arc. I would contact them or return to the dealer you purchased it from and have them talk to Fred. This issue was the primary reason we removed it from the customers vehicle as it's a fully...
  13. What is the best processor?

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    I am the one that did munkeys car. Other than quite a few early production units, we got one of the first production units when Arc started shipping to dealers. Bottom line is we had noise problems with the unit, to the point I know for a fact it was sent to Mr. Zeff himself to determine the...

  15. 2012 F150 System Confusion

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    You wouldn't need both the AOEM-FRD24 (which isn't compatible with the factory Sony system anyway) and the LCQ-1 as they are essentially doing the same thing. You can just go factory amp to LCQ-1 to aftermarket amplifier.
  16. 2012 F150 System Confusion

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    You can take a look at the AudioControl OEM integration units with AccuBass, either the LC2i, LC7i, or LCQ-1. The AccuBass circuit was designed to correct the bass roll off in today's factory audio systems. As far as replacing the headunit, if you wanted to go that route you can retain sync and...
  17. problem with usb on kenwood x993 kdc

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    I just saw a similar issue with a x493. It wouldn't play USB or CD's, and continually flashed reading. AM/FM was fine. Pressing the reset button on the radio, fixed the issues. Worth a try, if you haven't already.
  18. Bought Focal K2P but...

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    You paid CarToys for K2P. If you just bought the speakers, and a speaker was bad out of the box that should be taken up with the retailer that sold you the speakers. Especially considering the likelyhood of a brand new Focal speaker being DOA is pretty low IMHO. Sounds like maybe a sales person...

    He wasn't refering to the JBL GTI in his response to me. The Vehicle this equipment is going into is a VW GTI....all the GTI's get confusing...lol

    I like the IDQ's......but I think you might already know that. :) You really wouldn't go wrong with the Focal's or the JBL's either.
