  1. Going to pick up an Alpine ILX W650 tomorrow. For an inexpensive head unit, this would be considered alright for sound quality right? I have only had one Alpine head unit in the past, the CDA 9886 back in 2009, I didn't really think it was that impressive back then. If anyone has had this head unit or currently is using the ILX W650 could you please leave your input? Any issues with this head unit that I should know about to keep me from purchasing this head unit?
  2. If I were to only install a system that was maybe 2100-2400 RMS would I require a H.O Alt? Or can I just do the big 3 and an upgraded underhood battery? I am looking around for a battery that will fit my vehicle but so far I have not yet found a battery for my vehicle. I am looking at XS Batteries and have emailed and called to find out about a replacement audio battery. From what I was told they do not currently sell a battery for my vehicle. My vehicle is a 2014 Kia Sportage LX with the BCI 124R is the size under the hood. The amplifiers are a Skar Audio
  3. Has anyone installed an aftermarket headunit in a 2014 Kia Sportage with the UVO system? Before I bite off more than I can chew, I would like to ask if anyone has had any issues with removing the stock UVO system and replacing it with an aftermarket headunit. My concerns are: Does this cause a vehicle lockout? Does the theft system activate? If so, if anyone has dealt with this, how did you bypass this?
  4. Has anyone built in a 2014 Kia Sportage? I just inherited this vehicle and I would like to see if anyone has done an audio install in one of these vehicles. I've really been out of the audio scene for quite some time. I have no idea what brands are good now and what the reputable brands are. I would like to upgrade my headunit from stock, get some new speakers all around and amp them, with some subwoofers. Probably 10" or I could just reuse my SDRs from Skar that are 10"s. Budget wise I am not going to spend alot on all the speakers in the vehicle, so I guess around entry level Her
  5. Has anyone used heat shrink tubing lined with adhesive for wire ferrules? I am trying to figure out what size tubing and what a good ratio would be for 0/1 gauge wire. This is going from my amp to my distro block. I have had trouble with my wire ferrules coming loose with normal heat shrink. So I was just curious to see if there are any heat shrink tubing that can be used with 0/1 gauge.
  6. Well, the Saturday thing is normal, but I emailed on a Thursday, Wednesday, Monday. I only emailed recently on the 2nd of May, which is a Saturday. I do understand the Saturday email thing though. I connected my DD-1 and CC-1 lead's to both my amp and my friends amp. All though the speaker terminals, I tried both right output and left output of each terminal. I didn't think about using the negative power wire for my connection, I'll have to try this next time I am over at my friends house. As for the amps tested, I used a Skar Audio 1500.1Dv1, JL Audio JX 360/4 these
  7. Well I figured I'd make one last attempt to get help through the forums, I've sent an email, multiple actually but never got a reply once. I was told, from a reliable source that if I emailed the support on wccaraudio then the techs had gotten my email and were looking at it. Never heard back from support and I have not heard back from the reliable source, even after dming and pinging them in a chat. I also sent wccaraudio an email from two different emails, both of which work and are used on a constant basis. So not total sure why I never got an answer.
  8. For some reason I did not get a notification when you replied. Anyway, I am using a Duracell 9V the normal ones. I have not gotten any email, or response from anyone on the Discord concerning admins. Sorry for the late reply.
  9. Can anyone help me? I've sent emails with no response. Not sure what else to do.
  10. I have a problem with my DD-1 and CC-1, I bought my DD-1 and CC-1 back in 2013. When I tried to find the max distortion on my friends headunit using my DD-1 I got the subwoofer amp measured. But when I tried to do his 4 channel amp, a Kenwood Excelon X600F my DD-1 could not measure the distortion from the headunit though this amp. For one thing I noticed that even when I tuned my amps way before my friends, my DD-1''s signal light would flicker, never stay solid. Same thing happened with my friends amps. I didn't think anything of it until tried set the gain for my friends sub amp
