  1. They are low level outputs they are meant to connect to an amplifier, they don't drive speakers.

    RCA Distortion From Head Unit

    I'm not trying to troll you, but whenever someone with a head unit and speakers in stock locations start talking about how much power handling their speakers have and how many db's i just know we are in for a fun ride.

    RCA Distortion From Head Unit

    they put distortion and clipping into the pre outs if you have the bass boost, loudness and eq's turned up most likely you have the amps gains set too high and messed up settings on your head unit. I've never seen a hu unit that was installed "correctly" not power off with the acc off. did you use a harness for your car? are you sure you know which wires are for accessory and constant?
  4. you need to make the decision if you want it to sound good to you, or be loud with the windows down so jerks can follow you home and come back and try to steal your shit You want to enjoy the music you listen to or get lifelong hearing damage from shrill loud showoff crap? people go crazy and blow their brains out from tinnitus. Maybe you have a friend who has a super loud system with distortion and you think its cool when you hear it from time to time, but listening like that for long periods of time even non distorted super high volume systems will wreck your hearing.

    its cheap, but is it that bad?

    so a single handsaw eh? You either use a ripsaw and you cant cut a hole with it , or you use a mitre saw but then it would take hours to rip a 4 foot section of .75 mdf. so which one will you use? you post some dumb shit

    Rotary subwoofers

    hmm the vanes do rotate though, they just don't go all the way around. anything traveling around a center point is technically rotating even if they do oscillate.

  13. turning on your ac compressor should bump up your idle, see if that helps
  14. So after being into the hobby for so long was the ground never tight? I ask this cause you came on here asking if your voltage situation was normal, meaning its always been like that for you and your asking if its common. So either you installed the ground loose and the systems been behaving like that the whole time and you found your mistake and corrected it. It also seems possible there was no loose ground and you bought a bigger cap thinking it will fix your voltage problem which the people have tried to help you realize and fix from the beginning. It's not condescending and knowitall to tell someone that bs marketing products don't work, it's actually helpful. But i guess if it goes against your opinionated views you get hostile towards it. 5 farads of capacitance will run a head unit by itself for less than 10 seconds, one bass hit from a 1200 watt amp will drain your new cap almost instantly, so by adding it you are actually adding overall current draw to your system by having to constantly refill that cap.
