  1. Went and got two of those type of fuse blocks after seeing this post, I didn't even know he had some made. I was going to go the SMD route but already had some of Jims stuff in the ride.
  2. Yes the factory Bluetooth sucks in my VW and the Nav-TV unit isnt meshing well with my factory radio. It's all coming out for an aftermarket radio.
  3. I have a 21 Passat R and have to get the Nav-Tv unit (two shops told me before I believed them haha), putting my car in the shop next Wednesday to let them install it for warranty purposes. Ive installed everything else in my car and was pissed after finding out I couldnt just use my AudioControl DSP to get proper signal from the factory amp/hu. I havent heard of the volume issue from either shop Ive talked to but Ill ask on next week to see what they say. I did look at the VW Forum and found a couple posts from people with Fender Audio setups that say if you try to tap in between the factory amp and hu will power up but you wont get sound.
  4. Just checking out other rides, it's my first time going. I have some friends entering some rides. Texas Whip Fest 2021
  5. Yes I was bummed out with the Dayton DSP but love the AC unit so it is what it is. I read all the toubleshooting people did to make them work and felt like I shouldn't have to do that for a product brand new out the box. Yes you are right DFW just keeps expanding more and more, construction everywhere. I'm in Lewisville but work in Downtown Fort Worth. There is a car show in Ennis at the end of June, I want to say it's the 26th if I remember correctly.
  6. Nice build man and love the step by step break down. Talking about all this rain, you must be in the DFW area? Sucks to hear about those amps as I wanted to try them myself. I wouldn't give up on the amps just yet. I had a Dayton DSP-408 that gave me the same kind of issues you are having and after 3 different units I just gave up and bought an AC 6to8 and love it. But I've been seeing where some of these DSPs are install dependent. Enough of my rant
  7. I like the equipment so far, didnt know D'Amore made more amps. Im hoping that you have better luck with your Dayton then I have even after my third one. Just purchased an Audio Control DM-608 to replace it.
  8. Thats how I felt before putting them on my amp that does 150w at 4ohms. But you can always control that, with the gains down they still over power my mids.
  9. These are 4 ohms and the one's I use. I currently have them on a SSA IC150.4. Gains all the way down. Just another option to check out. I loved them, selling them to a friend since I upgraded to some Stevens Audio HLCD horns. https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/ring-radiator-tweeters/sb-acoustics-sb29rdcn-c000-4-neo-magnet-ring-dome-tweeter/
  10. I love my SB Acoustic SB29RDCN-c000-4 tweeters, some of the best tweeters that Ive tried out.
  11. Some people get an empty battery case and use it as a distribution block for under hood connections, like this but they are out of stock right now. https://www.droppinhzcaraudio.com/products/battery-delete
  12. Could you do distribution blocks on the under side of the amp rack panel or do you want them seen in the acrylic window? Just a throught
  13. Heard great things about those Faital Pros and most reviews say they dont need a tweeter to mate with them.
