I'd be interested in meeting up again, need to fix the computer though, lost a drive. I'm kind of holding off on doing much with it as I'd like to get a new Jeep in the next few months but would still like to get together again.
When are you guys meeting next? I don't have a unit yet, but it would be great to see what you guys have done to get some ideas.
I'm getting a new car this week and will be busy with a new slicker install but when its done I'd love to try to get together.
I picked up my new (well new to me) 2003 acura cl s-type, thing is a blast to drive but the stock stereo/amp (Bose [I know it sucks]) is proving to be a real *****. I'm tempted to just yank the whole thing but well see. If anyone has seen people on this forum with an acura with the bose speaks/amp let me know b/c I cant seem to find any to ask them questions about what they did.
I'd still love to get together and chat with others.
I would suggest playing ball with the Bose system.. and adding to it... I think we have a bose in our Freestar (yes I own a minivan),
maybe I'm just getting older/more senile, I modded my last dash up like crazy, I might take it slower this time.
Anyway, I think we need a spring meetup,
Sounds good. I suggested The old Chicago in Eden Prarie. They have an open to the public heated garage which I think would be perfect for a gathering.
The problem with the bose system is that it uses 1 ohm speaks so you cant really get a aftermarket amp for it, or at least I couldnt find one. And the stock amp does not have rca inputs. The stereo actually sounds pretty good. so I'd rather not rip it out but well see. I called around and there are a few shops that could build a custom harness but they said it would be $250+ to do it. Its not that huge of a deal but it seems that their must be a better solution.
^^ you could wire multiple speakers in series to increase the impediance.
i know my camaro had the bose system in it, and what a pita that was..
now, there isnt a speck of it left. not even the stock wiring is in use.
carpc in the trunk, feeds to amplifiers, feeds to speakers. the only way to fly!
Im down for a meet in EP. thats nice and close to my place! Just let me know when!
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten
