cool Finally put my CD Player in my EB

After driving my EB around for almost 4 months with the standard tape deck in it.
I finally got around to getting the CD Player out of my old car and installing it.
Easier than i thought it would be and so much better.
And the standard GLi Speakers hold up really well, better than I thought they would...:s6:
Just thought I 'd pass it on cos its so great having it in there and it looks like it was meant to be there.

Sam

Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB

congrats dude. I went to wire up my front speakers today and give my h/u constant poower so my radio stations stay set. All went well surprisingly. Put it all back together, all good. Then about 20 mins later whilst cleaning the car no music. Check the fuse and sure enough it's blown, anyways cut it short, I have blown 6 fuses trying to work out what the **** is wrong.

I'll attack it in the morning when my head is clear.

Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB

Hehe, oh well, it's all started now :)

Once you get that first feeling of "oooo it looks like it's meant to be there, and how good does it make the stereo sound!!" you just can't stop after that :)

Bout' a year and a half ago, i decided to get a new headunit, put it in, looked fantastic. Then, i went to a couple of meets, saw some unbelievable power from cars like Bass_Crazy's EA, and Rmyers boot!! I caught the bug, and from then on, i haven't stopped :)

For me, every part of the stock stereo system had to go. All my wiring is aftermarket. The only stock stereo wiring i'm using is the ground, power and accesories wires behind the h/u, which seem to have held up ok..

For now i've settled with a JVC MP3/CDR/CDRW Headunit with dual pre-outs and subby control, an Audiobahn 2 channel 50wrmsx2 front stage amp to run my Focal Polyglass 2 way front speakers. My bass is supplied by a Clarion 500w dual voice coil 12" subby, powered by a 200wrms JL Audio monoblock. All wiring is stinger, running a 4 gauge power wire to a 3 port fused distribution block, which branches into 2 8 gauge power cables to each amp.

My rear speakers are currently being powered off the headunit, but they're distorting at high volume, and can't keep up with my 2 way focals. So, i'm thinking about getting 2 new 12" DVC subs, and an amp that will give each sub 300wrms @ 2ohm resistance, and also give my back speakers 30wrms each at 4 ohm stereo. (bout a $1500-$2000 upgrade right there..)

As you can see, if you have enough cash, and u like the feeling of "ooo i love how that sounds!!" and you're completely insane(tm) for car audio, give it a year or so, and you'll have a VERY nice system!

Hope it all goes well.. sorry about my post, not meant to sound boastful, just wanted to display the characteristics of this car audio bug!!!

Cheers,
yaggy

Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB

yagz, why not just cap the rear speakers to stop them distorting, the only reason they are distorting is coz they're still trying to play the bass notes coming straight from the headunit.
i'm in the same situation at the moment, and i'm gunna go get a few caps to put on, just needa work out what ones to get! :D

Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB

I think I'll be taking a similar road as Yagz as soon as I have funds.
The stock speakers sound OK. But still not good enough.

I'm beginning to see or hear..... More Bass = More rattles I have to Find.

Oh well. Its all worth it.

Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB

EFFalcon:

800Hz 1/2 octave crossover - 50uF cap

100uF cap for 400Hz

70uF for 600Hz

I was reccomended 150uF for about 150-200Hz cut off

remember they have to be non polarity sensitive and 100V rated caps :D

DSE should have them

Re: Finally put my CD Player in my EB

its a capacitor... electrical component.
very small part, u wire it inline with the speaker, and it basically cuts out the bass frequency, cheap crossover basically :)
