    New guy here. I recently installed a Rockville powered 12" sealed sub box in the trunk just to give my stock system a little missing low end. For what it is, it actually gets the job done. I got everything dialed in and it sounds pretty good. However, I can't run it too long before the thermo...

    Hey everyone, Wasn't sure where to post this, hope this is okay.

    Ok, so I'm trying to upgrade just the speakers on my micra k14. From my research I've discovered the current woofers are wired in parallel with the tweeters. I think the tweeter itself has a frequency filter. My new set of speakers will be focal rse-165 which have their own passive crossovers...

    Hi. I'm new to this, but I have a question that I can't find a straight forward answer to anywhere. The factory backup camera in my 2015 GMC Terrain must have gotten moisture inside the lens and the picture is cloudy. I bought an aftermarket camera online thinking I could just unplug the old one...

    Hello everyone first post here, I was replacing the headunit in my Jaguar 2003 X-type no nav and purchased a sony unit.
