I just recently got a different car and wanted to switch...

    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.

    Okay, this doesn't exactly have to do with speakers, but it does involve a Bluetooth audio adapter and wiring, so I hope this isn't too out of place. :P The power outlets in my car are always on, a feature that I don't like, but oh well. I'm using a Bluetooth adapter (SoundBot SB360) that is...
