    Running a 5ch Alpine PDX-5 and a Kicker EQ9 with a Miccus BluBridge mini-jack Rx

    It works, however it doesn't have much volume. I'm going to add a PAC LD10 line driver to it so I can boost the signal and not have to max out the phone (which can cause distortion)

    UPS crushed my subwoofer... have to order a new one but they are out of stock and backorder is 1 month.
    After I get the sub installed and the line driver, I'm going to add a couple usb ports to the car so I can run the Miccus BluBridge continuously, as well as fab a phone dock to replace the stock head unit.

    Also, my my window quit rolling up for some odd reason, it rolls down though. There was moisture in the door, I think the motor might've shorted. Going to pull it out today and check.

    Still trying to think of a good way to set up a remote turn on that will eliminate the pop, atm I have a button for my remote wire that turns it on and off, which may become the permanent solution.

    I used to use the BluBridge. While it was cool and did the job, it still will not run continuously because it shuts down after a few minutes when it detects no audio is playing. I guess that's how it reserves its power. Unless you hack it and find a way to hardwire it then maybe. That was the only drawback for me with that product.

    On mine I used a headphone to rca cord to go from the front to the back. At the hook up I have a clarion EQ with volume control. It can boost the line level to 7 volts, that feeds a old school PPI amp. Works great, but I have recently ordered the bluetooth receiver so I can do away with the wired connection.

    I can't do a headphone cable because of GSM interfering with audio so bad, especially in spotty service areas which is everywhere around me, it would just be a lot of static all the time.

    I just swapped out the kicker eq9 to the TKO and I do like the TKO having a volume control knob, I just set the phone to max volume and I have a full control range that is natural to adjust. It also has adjustable gain for the aux in, and an aux button so I can wire my headunit to it if I cared, but I'm planning on taking it out so no point in that.

    I don't need a line driver with the setup, however my tweeters make an annoying hiss when powered on. I'm going to put a strip of foam over them to absorb it.

    Also, I'm still trying to find a good way to set up a remote trigger, I'm using a switch at the moment which is mostly just left on and I just make sure to turn on the music before starting the car to avoid the pop. That and looking for a way to turn on the blubridge whenever on charge.

    Anyone know of a way to keep the music playing when I get a phone call?
