    newbie here

    Hey guys (and gals). Saw this site recomended on another forum I'm on. I'm full of questions that I hope to eventually have answered.

    Just got what I feel is a steal of a deal on a JL 500/1, 2 JL 10w3v2-d4's, an RF capacitor, and a JL box ($250 for all) and now I gotta start looking into all this stuff again. Been a lot of years since I messed with any of it.

    Also, anyone on here y'all recomend to repair amps? I have an old punch 250 (I think a2) that doesn't power up. Are these old things worth it any more?

    Anyway, glad to be here.

    Welcome to the forum man, beware of some of the assholes; don't take **** personally.

    As for your gear, $250 is a great price on that. Hell, the 500/1 is worth more than that alone!

    Send 'shallowfu' a PM on here, he may be able to help you out with repairing the RF. By the way, it would deffinitly be worth fixing, they were a solid line of amps.

    Thanks, I've pretty much figured that most people on the net talk more BS than anything. I can take it.

    I will get in touch with him on the repair. I really liked the old amp when it was working so I just kept it in the closet once it quit.

    Thanks again

    Re: newbie here

    Hello everyone,
    I've been in search for some help regarding on how to fix my cd player. I have a 2004 Dodge Neon, when I called where I bought the car all they could tell me was that I needed to take it to a dealership. I'm hoping that I can get some input from you guys on fixing it or do I really have to drop it off? Cd's are in it, makes the sound of it ready to play but nothing and comes up with "error" & won't eject. I'm missing my music can only take the radio for so long, hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for your time

    ill let you in on a dealer secret, when it reads "error" tap on the 2nd "r" in the word 6 times, scroll the volume from max to min twice, and push a flathead screwdriver through the faceplate. then the cds will eject.

    Well, I don't know how to tell if they are the new ones or not. Think I'll hold on to them for a while though. Thanks anyway.

    BTW Love some of the avatars on here!
