  • Forum Post: Re: Need Help

    Disconnect the negative battery terminal. First priority. Well first you should know not to run your patch cables along side your power cables, this can induce noise. If you must cross a patch and power cable do it at a 90 degree angle. Choose a well ventilated area for your amplifiers and measure out...
  • Forum Post: Re: Need Help

    Nope, that should pretty much cover all of the things that you will need to acomplish. The only thing that I will add is: Please take your time during the install to do everything properly. A clean looking installation will be much more rewarding than something that is just thrown at the car. The use...
  • Forum Post: Re: Difference between a shallow mount and a regular 6.5"?

    If you want to install regular speakers and not the shallow mounts we show, then you will need to do some type of custom install. The issue is the mounting height (space from the mounting plate in the doors for the speaker to the grill that covers them on the door panel). Maybe cutting off the factory...

  • Forum Post: Re: Good amp for these subs?

    Thanks, So If I get a MRP-M850 it will push out 800 watts. If I put that into 2 Alpine 1242D's will the watt rating still be 800 or will it drop to 400 because it is powering 2 subs? And as far as the cheep amp thing, I was looking for a example, because I am fairly new to car audio. And if I wanted...

  • Forum Post: Side mounting component speakers?

    I found out that I can fit 5 1/4 speakers in the front doors of my 94 Geo Prizm. I'd really like to put component speakers up front because I put some in the rear and they sound so much better than the 4" speakers up front. Now my question is, can I mount the Infinity 5010 components 5 1/4 inch up front...
  • Forum Post: Fitting 6x9 speakers into front door of 2005 Dodge Ram

    Does anyone have any experience installing 6x9 speakers into the front door of a 2005 Dodge Ram. I have speakers that are noted to fit, but the basket is larger than the opening. I'm sure there is a simple rigged solution, just checking to see if someone has any recommendations.
  • Forum Post: Re: Side mounting component speakers?

    Hey Justin, Based on the information we have for a 94 Prizm, we don't show that a 5 1/4" speaker will fit in your front doors. You may be able to get them to, but it looks like you will have to do some modification to get them to fit. Specifically, the Infinity components would not fit because the...

  • Forum Post: Re: Trying to make my car AMP READY

    So far, it doesn't look like we've had any responses for you. While I do not have this vehicle, I can tell you that running amp wires is fairly similar from vehicle to vehicle. One of the first steps is to find a hole in the firewall to pass your power cable. Most vehicles offer a pre-cut hole for this...

  • Forum Post: Re: Polk MMC 690 in '98 Honda Accord?

    Good Question Brian, While it is possible to fit many 6x9 speakers in the rear deck of a 1998 Honda Accord, our website only shows those speakers that are listed as an "Easy Fit" meaning: No modification or customization is necessary. The real problem with the Polk MMC690 is the "mounting height...

    Hi Guys. I went to get the Kenwood 7100 installed in my vehicle by a local installer. However, the 7100 is pretty thin on the ground so they got a 7019 and the kenwood Garmin external unit. Now, the Nav unit works perfectly, I'm very happy with it - however, I can only get to the Nav screen by...

  • Forum Post: Re: What head unit would fit in my car? Can't find the size anywhere!

    Good question pbland. At this time, we do not have any kits or harnesses for the 2003 Jaguar. While it may be possible to custom install an aftermarket unit, you'll need to fabricate a mounting kit and hardwire all the connections. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you there. If you would like...
