    With all the high end stuff I've had in my cars over the years, Wal-Mart has often been the source for my HU adaptor harnesses. They sell Scoche, I think, and finding a universal GM harness should be...

    You'll be fine. I my 10w7 in my RX8 that I used to have off of a LOC and it sounded great. You'd probably notice a little difference if you ran your front stage off of a LOC and put it on a good HU...

    Nope, but it seems to me that the easiest way would be to buy a clip on case that could be fiberglassed into the dash. That way you'd be able to remove it when needed and you don't have to worry...

    My hifonics amp is good, but I head rumor that they are no longer as good as they were. I haven't done a whole lot of research into new and existing brands recently, as I have my stereo pretty much...

    Yup, I got that from your post. It's a message forum, so we're all here to learn and share info. I learned everything I know about car audio from message forums and building my own installs too.

    Thanks for the contribution, I do have a few questions and a few things I'd like to clear up with it though.

    I've used a coat hanger to do it, but I've also just pulled the boot out of both sides and used the old fingers. Just make sure you can get it back in before doing this. It makes it a little easier...

    I used AA batteries for that reason. The lower voltage makes them a little more forgiving. Like he said, just touch it and listen for noise from the VC in the gap. It shouldn't scratch. Pushing with...

    Sub Shopping, details inside

    I'm shopping for a friend's truck and want to see if you guys can show me a few alternatives to my plan.

    He has about 200w for each sub and they'll be in an under-the-seat truck box. I"m not sure...

    I would try another amp or another pair of speakers to see if something works. Speakers can be tested with a home audio setup.

    It sounds like your antenna wire is wired to the dimmer or illumination somehow. I'd pull the deck and double check the wire harness.

    I haven't shopped car audio in a while, but I would look into JL or Alpine for a safe, middle-higher end amp. Arc audio makes great stuff, but they're spendy. Most of the big name brands are just...

    A lot of the distortion you're hearing is the fault of the amp, not the speakers. It says 50x4 but you probably only get 25 useful watts before it gets distorted. Its a sad reality of all head units....

    Yup

    That can be a mono amp or a 2 channel bridged. You do not want to run each voice coil off a different channel, it should be bridged.

    If you find an amp that puts out 400x2 at 2 ohms you'd be in business too. I can't recommend a specific amp off...

    The two subs can be wired paralled to make a 4 ohm load on the amp. I didn't specify parallel wiring, but that's what I was getting at when I said you'll want a mono amp that makes 400w @ 4ohms or a...

    You should be able to find an amp that does that, just look for RMS ratings not MAX. Max power is what an amp can make or a speaker can take just before it...
