QUOTE (hyundave @ May 7 2014, 08:36 AM) *
Yea I've never understood why people want to be "driving away" from the sound. If anything I want to be driving closer to it! Get that concert feel. That's just me though. I know a lot of audio fanatics who simply do away with their rear speakers, throw a 3 way component set up in the front, and design their subwoofers vibrations to hit the top of the windshield so it's angled into the front of the car. Pretty crazy stuff but when done right you really get a neat sensation.


This probably explains a question I've been having for some time. Back in the day, rear speakers were installed on the rear parcel tray just below the rear windshield (applies to coupes, hardtops and sedans only), which seemed to make sense given the large volume of space in the trunk to enhance the low frequencies of the speakers. Nowdays it seems like more rear speakers are installed in the rear doors by the car manufacturers. Could it be because they have a closer location to the driver than if they were mounted on the rear parcel tray, even if the void in the rear door cavity is small (not to mention less sound damping surfaces)?

So did you know the USPS delivers packages on Sunday? If you did not know, it does.
I knew they did around Christmas time, but I thought it was a seasonal deal. Apparently not.

I got the amp and adapter harness today. Going to my moms in a bit so won't be able to do anything about it today.
I will be able to get it all wired up tomorrow once I figure out where to put the amp (may need to add more speaker wire). Hopefully the speakers come in tomorrow so I can finish it up.

Well, got the radio and amp installed. took a bit to get all the wires soldered and figure out which wire goes where, but got it all done. Only issue is the radio does not dim when the headlights are on (there were 2 orange wires on it, both were illumination, one said illumination, one said illumination dimmer, I think I hooked onto illumination dimmer, guess it should have been other other way.

Still waiting on the speakers. Radio/amp sounds OK (actually real good, volume is only at 14 and is loud, used to be 24 or so in the Elantra), but I can barely turn it up before it starts distorting.

Speakers should be in today though, so I will have a better idea then.

The green button option matches pretty well with the OEM green on the Ford. I am still trying to decide what color to make the display, can't find a green that matches.

I also got the speakers in today, so those are going in tomorrow.
