I am so excited about my latest purchase, i had to post about it BEFORE i even have it. I want and need this deck so bad i jumped up on @SonicElectronix and ordered it....from my own damn banner haha (up top). Why do i "need" a new deck? Well i am making some changes lately. If you have been following my posts, you may have seen the ipad pro dash mod i am doing in the Tahoe. It's 13" of pure Ipad sexyness. Going from a dull, old (but good) 10.2" VGA screen that is 10 years old (Shown behind it), this is going to be amazing! But i need something to run the ipad. My old Pioneer deck down below still works fine, but it is way outdated. Also, the biggest issue is that i have been spoiled with the Optical cable (From my Mac Mini) and i don't want to go back. Very few single din head units out there have an optical out. Having a USB In is also needed in my case (for the ipad). This thing has it all! To make a long story short, i chose this. I will post pics when i get the real thing. I hope to get it tomorrow! Oh and don't let the simplicity fool you...i will be able to run all the functions THROUGH the ipad (an app). This thing is gonna be so sick!! Oh and don't ever confuse this thing with Sony Xplode. If you want to compare it to something, and you are old enough to do so, compare it to Sony Mobile ES, but BETTER. (i hope lol)
So I have a 2015 Honda Accord LX model with a stock stereo. I installed a 12 inch sub in a custom box with a 2000 watt mono block. I was setting my gains using a multimeter and when I played a 30 hz test tone I noticed a substantialy less value in voltage than with a 40 hz test tone. I've done my research and found out the signal from my rear speaker wire I spliced into and sent through my LOC is not a full range signal. I've read countless forums of people suggesting to Install an aftermarket head unit but I want to keep my factory one because the price to install a kit in this vehicle is almost $800. So my question is what are my other options in sending a full range signal to my subwoofer so It can play those really low 20-30hz tones. It's a 12 inch sub in a box tuned to 28 hz so It ***** not being able to get the full bass range sent to it. Thanks for any pointers I appreciate it!
