    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'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.

    Wow, so I've totally ignored this forum for a while, but as fate would have it, I'm the proud owner of an Audi A4 now ..(by by explorer) so I'm doing more research, will you guys take me back?

    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 dunno, you might be SOL, for our freestar there was a $75 aux in harness adapter...

    heated garage eh... hmm.... we'll have to let it stew a bit, how long has it been since the last meet anyway?

    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
