  1. That's what I ended up doing with both my husky and pit when they were puppies and thought biting was part of playtime. Took a couple times before they stopped.
  2. If it's not turning off, then you are constantly applying 12v to the fans
  3. Slow progress being made, which I guess is good since I'm taking my time and not worried about rushing through. I used JB Weld Plastic Welder to hold the meter din in place of the cutout, sanded the excess down in the front. More sanding and a little bit of 3-M gold filler to come.
  4. and here are all of the non-touchscreen diagrams
  5. i don't know what's different about them, but chilton's has separate diagrams for both and i didn't look for differences. here are all of the touchscreen diagrams.
  6. I'd recommend stuffing a trash bag or two into the hatch and spray the foam into those if you're going to use spray foam. Less messy, and will help keep it out of any moving components for the handle/latch. Try to keep the bags away from those moving parts as well
  7. Being that it's not the same manufacturer, the wiring for the knob likely doesnt match the connections on the amp. I would use the knob meant for their amps if you want to use one that connects directly to the amp, or you can use an RCA style knob like the PAC LC-1 which attenuates the signal going through the RCA (my preferred knob)
  8. Adhesive backed velcro will not harm your panel. If/when you decide to take it off, a little bit of non-acetone nail polish remover and a cotton ball or soft cloth will easily remove any leftover adhesive and leave your panel looking like nothing was ever there
  9. I'm sure if you watched the video in this thread that you posted in where steve talks about the amp and even tests it, you'd probably get a little bit of that info that is so easily accessible to you already. https://lmgtfy.com/?q=CAB+1600.1+strapped
  10. @Wicks hasn't been around much for a while I don't think. If he does log in, he'll get a notification from that tag. As far as repair, there are a few good amp repair companies out there. I think amp medics is probably the most commonly recommended, and seems to have great reviews.

I prefer to do a site specific google search, such as: PPI 2150 site:stevemeadedesigns.com This link lists a few other amp repair services as well. https://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/216137-amplifier-repair/
  11. I know a lot of my pics uploaded were photobucket, so I dont know how much of the old stuff is visible, but I'm getting started on this thing again. Tore it all out back in 2017 in preparation for a rebuild, and never did anything after. So, to get started, I did some clean up behind the dash, and for temporary tunes I put the stock bose amp and speakers back in. What a waste of time that was, because the two front door speakers dont work, and with just the rear doors and D-pillar speakers (didnt put the A-pillar tweets or the center console woofer back on) it sounds like crap. I still want to put the HAT legatia 8's in the front doors, and I have decided if I want to put the HAT legatia 6's in the kicks or the rear doors. I'm leaning towards the kicks, and then if I dont like it I'll throw them in the rear doors. Still going to do the HAT L4's and L1's in the A-pillars. My center console panel that has the SMD VM-1 and OM-1 in it was looking rough, so I pulled it and am using some spot filler to clean it up, here's what I've got so far. Need to do a little more sanding where the paint was chipping by the accessory outlets. Once everything is smoothed out, just gonna paint it black again and hopefully that will be the last time I have to mess with it. I also need to redo the sound deadening in my front doors, and add some to the rear doors. The front doors, roof, and rear hatch were done with the SoundQubed Q-Mat four or five years ago, and I've kind of regretted it since. It was gooey and messy straight out the box, and each year it just makes a bigger mess because that shit is melting any time it gets 80⁰ or higher outside. It's not gonna be fun, and it's going to take a while. It's supposed to rain every day till next monday right now, so that will be the earliest I can get started on pulling/scraping that muck off. Then I'll get some more second skin like I did for the floor. I'll do before and after pictures of the removal process, but given how messy this stuff is, I can't guarantee any pics during.
