  1. Electricians, please help me hook up this generator.....

    If you get this: Shop Generator Power Inlet Boxes at Lowes.com! and a transfer switch, you're good to go. But that's a lot of work to do in the middle of a snow storm.
  2. Are amplifier sound signatures measurable?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    As already alluded to in this thread; you're stating the corollary of the Richard Clark $10,000 Amplifier Challenge. If Richard Clark is correct, and so far anything resembling a rigorous test has agreed, then any amp which measures similarly and operated outside of clipping (IE, virtually all...
  3. Anyone ever hardwire their DSP volume control to their OEM volume control?

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    I doubt that either of the volume knobs are actually potentiometers. Most likely they are digital encoders or something similar.

    I'm aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal ears right now. I have some questions: Got some screenshots? How well do the voice commands function, if at all? Can it handle bluetooth connections to the phone at the same time?

  8. How do you improve the stereo in newer cars?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    That's good to hear, I'm considering the LC7i or the DQ-61 for my F150. Sync isn't is a good as I would like, but it works well enough. I could pull the head unit easily enough, and replace it with one of the Alpines+perfect fit, but honestly it just isn't good enough to justify the cost, and...
  9. How do you improve the stereo in newer cars?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    How much day to day tweaking do you see yourself doing? The DSPs and associated software etc, are largely intended to be a set it and forget it process as the usual use is to address speaker, source, and vehicle shortcomings. Those don't change regularly. Some of them have an additional knob...
  10. RCA sonic Poll

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    WestCo: I'm not against you or your cables, I'm against the idea the unmeasurable and mystical parameters affect the quality of a part. This works for speakers, guns, vehicles, etc. In general, our sense are well bounded instruments, with limited range and limited performance characteristics.

    Consider this for your low resistance measurements: How to Measure Low Resistances - Robot Room And, the quantity of people that believe your claims is of no importance, in the face of data. Look at the stupid "Vaccination" debate. There is science on one side, and idiots on the other...

    You don't understand, you need to do this, not offer your assistance. Or find someone to do it for you, in a controlled setting. Understand that if you do it your self, you need to be very clear in your process, methods, and data collection. No, there are tons of solutions. Lots of industries...

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    There really is one core reason: Because that's how the scientific method works. Why does the scientific method work this way? Because people suck at measuring things and drawing conclusions when they are personally vested. Formulation of a question: "Do RCA cables matter in system...

    Not exactly. AGU's can carry twice their rated value for almost 2 minutes. http://www.cooperindustries.com/content/dam/public/bussmann/Electrical/Resources/product-datasheets-a/Bus_Ele_DS_2008_AGU.pdf Unfortunately that curve doesn't show minimum melt or maximum clearing time, but it get's...
  15. Any Electrical Engineers?

    EE, but in the Power Generation field. Being good at math will help you get the degree, but being a DIYer will make you a good engineer. It's a good degree, even if you don't end up become an engineer, Deloit Consulting, etc like to higher high GPA engineers because they have been taught...

    I gotta say, those chrome ports really exude a sense of style, taste, and class. Given that, I'm pretty sure the last vehicle that this was installed in was a 1995 Cutlass Supreme.
  19. Anyone have experience with online car stereo?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    Well, after a week of camping on my order they notified me they were out of stock (of a 10 year old speaker? really?) Catch is, I have no idea if they actually credited the card, because I used a cash card from a tire rebate. Argh. Any one have a set of 10 year old VR600-CX or TR600-CX...
