Re: Manual to Power window conversion only working with main switch

hopefully not too late but each switch, tho identical in physical shape/size are specific to the particular door. there's some degree of electronics in each switch that makes it specific to each door.

Re: Installing Aftermarket Car Audio in a Hybrid.

I have a factory head unit with navigation for a honda accord hybrid (english) and the antenna module if you're interested. There's also a full guide on the web for installing an aftermarket system in this car. May also help with other similar vehicles. http://www.6thgenaccord.com/forums/showthread....

Re: Need car audio advice

recommend a passive. a capacitor alone on the mids and highs will not be enough. the 8" will see frequencies above what it can play and sound terrible. you can build or buy passive. involves knowing your speaker specs, designing the xover network, getting an xover or the parts, etc... google.

Re: Centre image too wide

Moved the tweeters and applied TA much differently. Noticeable improvement but still not to my liking. Can't change the tweeter's x-over point nor TA them separately since they are running passively off a single pair of channels. I have played with intensity with good results. Tweets are now placed ...

Re: A Lil info about JLW6 PLZ

^^ what he said is right. Don't listen to men who say they got 2000rms on such-and-such sub and it playing. You want your sub to be playing for 10 years, not 3!

Re: Shallow subs.....need to know whose de best...?

The JL TW3 is pretty good in a small sealed enclosure. Good for about 500RMS... you can prob run about 250RMS in mids+highs. Would get you moderately loud.

Re: do orion amps overheat

if one amp is driving more power than the other, this happens.
if one amp is loaded down more, this happens (eg - 8phm load vs 4 ohm vs 2ohm).
If a mistake was made and the amp loaded too low, this can happen.
If the amp is a class a/b and the other cooler amp is a class D, this is expected.
