So I've always used 3M headliner adhesive. I have never even had a bubble develop that I remember. Well it failed now. Not sure if it was the Naugahyde backing or what. So I didn't even get to post pics of the headliner and sunroof cover in. Everything is back out. I bought some Weldwood Landau you and spray gun. Won't be coming off again.
I also decided I'm ditching the tablet.
Like the Sound Monitor hu just not enough support for new features. Only Huawei and they lost American support.
I'm going all in on Raspberry pi. I've mentioned in here before my son was working on it last year. He got it working. Now I'm taking over to get it run on 4G and eventually use Nissandatascan.
Sits nicely in clocks spot.
I'll modify the clock bezel to hold it.
There's plenty of room under the dash for any Pi hats and it's directly on the HVAC trunk line. So it will be climate controlled.
It's all because I decided to keep the factory look. Well at least the last and biggest straw in the pile.
I always liked the smooth and simple look of the gray dash in these cars. It doesn't seem cheap at all in person. I had one with the wood grain trim and I like this more. That's the main another big reason I decided against the tablet today. I just like how the factory vents make a nice smooth transition to the dash.
I'm also having 3 SW8000 subs rebuilt to better suit a IB install. The fins match the Sound Monitor amps so they will go together nicely in the trunk. I plan on using a flat piston cone that matches the SI's I have in the doors.
I made it down the first year I had this car. Then a big baseball tournament fell on the meet weekend two years in a row. I still don't know why Jason doesn't plan around my kids schedules. Must not have liked the coffee and dogs I brought down.
I spent about 12 hours messing with the RPi OS's. Installing and installing the different systems. What I have found is I want Android and by far the best version for Android is Lineage 17.1. It runs extremely smooth and all the apps except one I tried from the play store work.
Hello all, I have been a long time lurker and have used this site as a great source of information in the past. I've installed a few of my own car audio systems over the years and I think its high time to share my most recent adventure.
I am about to start my highest end system to date. While...
I have a new vehicle and I'm back to my old addiction. I feel the need to gut this sucker and refine the stock audio system. Meet my latest project:
It looks like there is ample room to place subs and amp(s) in the rear hatch:
The hatch floor is recessed almost 2" below...
Hey all. So the Camry finally let me down. I tore into that car so hard. Need speaker vents? Cut a hole? Want to try something crazy? Rip out half the interior? Acoustic foam on all surfaces? Sure why the hell not. It was my first real car. I loved it to death, but its time to move on. I always...
So I've finally decided to get moving on an audio build for my Type R. The biggest hurdle for me in this case is that I have to use the factory HU, it's just too integrated into other systems on the car. Right now I'm just in early planning stages and want to come up with a game plan. The...
This isn't really a start-to-finish "log" of my audio system - just a place that I can post my somewhat-random thoughts and questions on my system and the upgrades I do to it or want to do to it....
Brief background - I have a 2018 Dodge Challenger - it came with the "Alpine Premium Amplified"...
