Re: My new Pioneer Double Din!

Actually, that Sony amp is pretty decent. Solid power and good sound quality. I know people have a hard time thinking Sony can make anything good since their days of Xplode, but I can tell you from...

Re: Newbie need advice.

Don't get too hung up on the size of the woofer cone. You need to make sure you pick the right sub, build the right enclosure and use the right amp. A properly set up 8" sub can hit lower and...

Re: Speaker Issues

Is Bluetooth louder than the other sources at the same volume? Check your EQ settings on ALL sources. Kenwood has made it so their head units come boosted right out of the box when you power them...

Re: Factory AUX Stereo (2007+)

Not much else to grab. Not sure the aux wiring coming from the aux panel simply runs straight to the radio though. Seems like it may get tied in with some of the other wiring and end up at the back...

Re: Aux cable

Do you know if it has cd changer controls? Do you have a pic of the radio?

Re: AGM battery Kinetik or XS Power?

XS Power. The Kinetik is a power cell not a battery and will not hold up long term without proper maintenance and not many people have the correct charger to do this. Also, if you are just adding a...

Re: Speakers acting up

If all three speakers started acting up at the same time then I doubt it is the wiring. The chances of three sets of speaker wire failing at the exact same time are... well... minimal. Also, you...

Re: Aftermarket stereo blows fuse along with parking lamp fuse

Was this a new install or were you just going back in to shrink wrap your wiring? If this was an older install that you were just cleaning up, I would take a look at the pins of the wiring harness...

Re: factory radio

POS they may be, but for that person that wants OEM fit/finish they work. I'm actually pretty surprised at how many people don't want to give up the factory look of their Ford radios. For these...

Re: factory radio

If it's working and in good condition I would say $100-150. The one I just sold was nearly new. It came out of a truck that the owner didn't own CD's so I traded him for a Ford OEM radio that had...

Re: Wiring my new pioneer stereo..

The Rangers from 1995-2006 should have a blue wire with a red stripe and then 2007 and up should have a blue wire with a white stripe for a dimmer wire in the OEM radio harness. Years should be...

Re: Building a fiberglass box

I've done plenty of fiberglass enclosures and even done what you are talking about in a Ranger before. Well, not for two 12's but rather for a single 10. Do you already have these 12's? This is a...

Re: Upgrading Sound System

That sub will do a decent job but unless you've got a hook up on one I wouldn't waist my money. The W7 is heavy ,inefficient and over priced. I'd look at a DD 3510 instead. Better sounding, more...

Re: factory radio

Just sold one of these for $150 at work about a month ago. You can get one with a 90 day warranty for $279 from replacementradios.com.

Re: Wiring my new pioneer stereo..

This wire will dim the radio lighting when you turn on your headlights if you hook it up right and you definitely want to use it. Pioneer radios are super bright if you don't dim them down. This...

Re: How to wire high input amp to head unit

Have you tried hooking anything else up besides that sub? Do you have a multi meter to test the rca's with to see if they are working in case you have an amp problem?

Re: Head unit just died

You should have power on both the red and the yellow wire when the truck is on and still have power on the yellow when the truck is off. Make sure you have a good ground on the black wire when the...

Re: How to wire high input amp to head unit

So the radio doesn't have any rca outputs or just doesn't have a subwoofer rca output?

Re: What is a good aftermarket stereo?

Pretty decent head unit but I do have one major complaint with it. The illumination is WAY too bright. It does have a manual dimmer setting but even all the way down it is a little bright...

All your major manufacturers (Pioneer, Sony, JVC, Kenwood, Alpine) make good head units. You need to look at each brand and see who is offering the features and user interface that you like/want. ...

Re: Sub under seats

There is no where near enough space under the front seats for a 12" sub of any kind. Think smaller. A good 8" in the right enclosure will do a much better job than a 12" crammed in the wrong one. ...

If the smoke was immediate that usual indicates too much DC coming out of the amp and speakers do not like DC. Question, did the speaker make any noise or did it simply push out and sit there until...
