    Pioneer Stage 4 PRS-D4200F

    Looks like the typical Korean stuff from higher end mfgs or higher lines. Doesnt look super special, but does look pretty dang nice. If you can get it for a decent price, do it, if it isnt cheaper than the regular 4 channel thats available for like $150, id let it slide

    Amp in power protect

    what happens when you hook it up with no speakers connected to it?

    wanting some amp help

    does this android unit not have RCA outputs? Also, what country are you in? Much of the stuff available here in the US is not available in other contries. There may be similar or identical products, but not the exact same. Im personally against the hi/lo (aka Line Out Converters you will see referred to as LOCs) if the deck has RCA outs as the quality is day and night. Are you prepared to run speaker wire back up to the front and through the rubber door boot to amplify the fronts? Sometimes you can get to the wires inside the car that go to the door speakers and just tap into them from there, but its not the best idea as opposed to running new wire. What will your budget be overall to do this as youre going to need to account for RCAs, speaker wire power wire, ground, fuses etc etc etc

    2003 Civic coupe install

    as stated, 2003 Civic coupe, these things are tiny, trying to guess what length of RCAs is need. 25' seems too long and so does 20'. Anyone install stuff in one of these? i have the 4 gauge ofc for pwr and gnd already, remote turn on wire and the deck is coming very soon. Just trying to get an idea on length for other stuff and and headaches anyone has suffered in one of these, altho i cant imagine many in such a simple car

    $200 budget

    yeah, the price is lower than some of the $80 subs, but will it perform as well as 2 AB XD 12"s?

    Help Needed - New Subs Are Quiet

    np ok, then dont tap off the rears, tap off the sub. itll already be eq'd and x-ed over and all that, but itll probably work the best with your otherwise stock stereo. When i had my 03 Maxima, i went to the scrap yard to get the opposite end of the molex plug so i could get straight signal that was intended for the sub and put an rca end on it, worked like a charm

    yep, saw that. Not interested in a recone right out of the gate. AB XD 12" it is for me then

    $200 budget

    i dunno about that man. some decent subs can be had for a hundo each. now you have me torn between the american bass XD 12 and the yard sale e series............ ugh.... LOL im still gonna be running the SoundQubed S1-1250 and have it at 2 ohms (dont trust the kid with 1 ohm in a box tuned to about 35 hz) The E series looks great!! The yard sale stuff works as it should, right?

    2012 Jetta w/Fender system questions

    get a DSP, run output signal from stock h/u to it, run rca signal from dsp to amps, rewire for amps, connect new amps to new speakers, configure dsp, go eat sammich, probably in your car because it sounds too good to leave after following this set of instructions

    Amplifier -- Sub -- PSU -- Speakers

    decks will only pull about 10 amperes even at full tilt, hence why they are fused that way. The yellow ones are usually +12v and the black ones ground. Blue and red are usually 3.3 and 5 respectively. A cheap DMM will help you with determining which are which beyond the color coding i provided Get a fuse container and sum them all up on the post in it, find out what amperage the psu can put out and fuse to a hair below that. E.g. if it says itll put out 4 amps, fuse it to 35. The 500 watt psu should put out around 70 or so, but the diagram on the bottom of the unit should tell you what kind of power it is capable of. The big molex is the only one that has any +12v at all or any worth giving a f*ck about. but seriously, get a plank of wood, or something not metallic to mount the PSU, the fuse bock and a ground coupling block to in avoidance of any variables that could cause you issues
