Re: After market muffler/exhaust opinions

I am currently running a dynomax Race Bullet on my 4.0L, it sounds good, not super loud, but also not quiet. Its a 2 1/4" inlet/outlet, 14" shell length. The tone is as deep as I have found for a v6,...

Re: my amp stays on 24/7 ?

Now take that wire that is switched at the one end, and run it to the "Remote" terminal on the amp. Once you have that hooked up the amp will only run when the radio is on.

Re: Clicking under dash air conitioner regulated...

Where do you park your truck? I had a leaf stem stuck in mine for a year, on slow it would make a ticking, and it got faster as the fan spins faster. As well, If I ran it full out you couldn't hear...

Re: my amp stays on 24/7 ?

when I had my sub with my stock head unit, I just spliced into the switched 12v wire going to the head unit. It worked so when the head unit came on, the amp would come on (exact same as the remote...

Re: my amp stays on 24/7 ?

Yeah exactly, Mine is just a toggle switch on my amp rack, you can see it in my pics, but to adjust my bass I just use the head unit. But definitely run the remote wire.

Re: my amp stays on 24/7 ?

I guess not, I also have a toggle switch on my remote wire (so if I'm in a parking lot I can turn the amp off to not kill the battery if I want music). I honestly don't see the point of not running...

Re: my amp stays on 24/7 ?

Well why is the amp on 24/7? There should be a remote wire running to the amp to turn it on so when the head unit comes on, the amp comes on (mine is 16ga), along with the power wire from the battery...
