Hey CACO world, hope all is well with all of you! My name is Rand and I am from the Sacramento area of California and I am in the process of trying to install a system in my car, my first system featuring component speakers and a multiple amp set up! I would love to sit here and tell you its been smooth sailing but that would be a lie. It has been a series of failures and the sad part is that I had it sounding pretty good just recently with the older components. The newer gear I got is not playing nice and is as follows:
head unit... Pioneer DEH-80PRS
mids/highs... Skar Audio SK65C
powered by... Hertz HCP 4 bridged to 2 channels
Sub...Rockford Fosgate P300-10
...the sub is self powered, which is very convenient for me but with the addition of the component speakers, (I had JL Audio C2 coaxials in the doors first and powered by the internal amp in the old deck I used which was a Pioneer DEH-X6900BT)and the second amp to the system, as well as the upgrade to my head unit, I have hit several snags. I won't bore any of you with those details just yet but lets say after fixing my simple mistakes like wrong polarity from one side connection to the other side, that moment when you think to yourself, "this has GOT to be it!" only to turn the stereo on to no sound again! So my goal with this forum is to gain some insight and knowledge from those of you willing to part with it and willing to do so with someone who doesn't have a lot to offer in return JUST YET. Hopefully that will change as time goes by! Thanks for reading my rambling thread and I wish you all the best of luck in your projects!
