    actually I was in a metal band in high school rhythm guitar, 5 years old was put to playing the piano as well. Also mixed some EDM music DJing for parties with a tractor pro as well in college. However car audio is the only hobby that surpassed all that. Now that your tangent is out of the way, the more important issue at hand is. You are a prick and your system su(ks and will always su(k with your autotune noob sh*t. end of story.

    Yeah, my son was in a Metal Band too. Plays bass guitar and a little piano. Metal! What an excuse for an insecure male ego! I used to have one of those! I'm a Rock and Roll baby, but I discovered Jazz a few years ago and never went back, although I still enjoy my old music. Punk Rock a lot, the REAL Punk Rock! Damned, *** Pistols, Iggy, New York Dolls, etc. I;m not into much of that "popular" radio music to much. Never have been since I discovered much better music!

    Yeah about that...

    If you have issues finding a job with a EE && CS degree something must be terribly wrong with you.

    7 yrs experience + a EE and or a CS degree you should be knocking back decent money with plenty of job security not scurrying to get a RN degree due to "outsourcing"

    ****, he said his son has an insecure male ego,

    well if I had known you plugged in some rca's on some old pro audio equipment and banged on a piece of building material I would have had more respect for you. you are truly talented.

    Re: My install's coming along nicely

    Holy hell, this manchild is absurd and full of himself.

    Here's a thought, John...
    A lot of us here have and/or have had some very nice, very expensive builds. Those builds require a lot of time and money. Money comes from well-paying jobs. Jobs with a decent salary require education, usually. Yes, many of us here are probably very well educated, with a ton of real-life professional experience.

    I don't need to cite my degree or which university I attended. Nobody here gives a **** about that. Those here who have legitimate, relevant knowledge display it without saying it just by helping others and carrying themselves with some slight hint of maturity.

    Stop trying to tout alleged and quite possibly fake credentials. Also, having an RN is a far cry from being a mental health professional. Try some humility. Try taking real advice without argument. You just might end up happier with the exact same, or less, time and money into the project.

    Or, take Jeff's idea and kill yourself. Either way.

    I still love how he claims to know so much about car audio and thinks it's a good idea to place amps in some enclosed space. You guys think he runs some overpriced wiring claiming it's the best?

    John Kuthe, you are the definition of an askhole. You seek advice and do the opposite or argue.

    Shame about your son...

    Most importantly, the fact that you sign every post with "John Kuthe..." p*sses me the f*ck off.

    No, the custom RCA connectors I ordered may not be the best, they were just a recomendation of my installer guy's so I went with it to save myself from having to solder a bunch of new RCA plugs onto the KnuKonceptz's RCA cables my installer guy ordered for my install. I was investigating how hard it would be to solder on new RCA plugs after cutting the KnuKonceptz's RCA wires down to correct length when my installer guy told me of a firm he knows that makes up custom RCA cables, so I went with them so we could go onto other installation tasks.

    And I know **** well in the Stow-n-Go storage bins is not the best place for amplifiers due to the lack of free air flow for amp cooling. But it IS a good place to mount them to save usable cargo/camping/sleeping room in the back it Baby II! So I'm gonna make it work!

    Re: My install's coming along nicely

    Btw auto tune is a waste of time. There is too much going on in a vehicle for it to work properly. Reflections, path length differences subwoofer distance is never right, subwoofer phase shift. Then the tune is trying to tune to a setting that might not be right for you. Every time you try to tune with the mic in a different spot, like a couple inches different, the tune changes. Then there's the mic. Is it calibrated? Do you know how much a real tuning mic costs that is properly calibrated? Then there's slew rate of your equipment. I'm sure I'm missing a bunch of stuff. You're the engineer though so you should know all this.

    There are a zillion variables, I know this. Automobiles are perhaps the worst environment in which to set up a very high fidelity electronic sound reproduction system. I know this! Yet we all do the best we can with what we've got!

    I'm done with that thread created for me.

    Today is a milestone of my install! Amps nailed down and DSP raised another 3/4 inches and nailed down also!



    Funniest thing too with the new 0AWG dedicated ground! Big amp does not get hot at all! Small amp still gets acceptably warm (just) So I did not measure the amperes going to the big amp. Evidently that ground we had found under 19mm bolt up under the back wall of the Stop-n-Go seating storage pit WAS a ground by continuity, but maybe not a good power handling ground and somehow was causing the big amp heat up unacceptably!! Once again stressing the importance of a GOOD ground! And only two better grounds than the battery neg post: alternator case and car chassis!

    Installer guy got one of the dash speaker wires run but we ran out of good speaker wire so ordered some more and have that to do next week. And the cool custom purple RCA cables made by DroppinHZ, which will be shipped to me soon!

    My crummy little audio system is almost functionally installed! Yay! :-)

    Custom made RCA cables from DroppinZ's just arrived!



    May have to order more Y-splitters. I really need 4 pairs to fully enable my smaller amp, the Alpine PDR-V75 amp. Plus I don't know if the physical range between my two amps can be easily and neatly reached with the Y-splitters shown. Yeah I could go out and see, and think I will! Test fit!
