Time for me to join the party!
The Harmon Kardon factory system in my M3 just wasn't doin' it for me so I decided to rip err all out and do some WERK!
So here's what I started with:
I didn't like any of the factory components, so I'm building it head to toe, here's a list of the main components:
Mechman 320A (to replaced the factory 120A)
One run each (power/ground) of 0 gauge OFC, front to back (stock battery is in the trunk)
Two XS Power XP3000's (jumped in on the group buy recently)
Alpine INA-W900 (As you will see later, this was quite a battle to install)
Alpine Imprint H100
Alpine Sirius Tuner
Coax signal cables
12Ga Knu Kord speaker wire for Mids/Highs
8Ga Stinger OFC for subs/highs amp
Hertz HSK130 5 1/4" Components
Rockford Fosgate Punch200DSM for the highs (OLD SCHOOL from 1993!)
DC Audio 2.0K
DC Audio XL12m2

have a 1999 ford explorer sport with the 4.0 ohv motor. i have a 270a 15v h/o alt installed in oem location. wanting to add my 2nd 270a alt. it can go in place of the ac pump or elsewhere.. anyone got a lead to one?
Hey all -
Brand new 3sixty.3 installed, and I'm curious how many of you dive deeply in to the 31 band EQ? I'm no expert, and I don't yet have a DD-1 so I'm not exactly aching to jump in to it. In order to tune it correctly, I'm assuming I need to just bite the bullet and go buy a DD-1, right?
Do you leave it default from the OEM setup, then jut adjust amp gains? Or are you better off going in and trying to build the correct curves for each type of music. Essentially I'd use 3 presets - Hip Hop, Rock, and probably a more mellow set for talk radio, etc.
'14 Ford F-150 Super Crew (Sony Premium Sound)
Set up is:
2 Kenwood eXelon 10"
Front doors - Polk DB 6.5" w/ tweets in pillars
Rear doors - Polk MM 6.5" w/ tweets in doors
Passive crossovers in all doors
Stock head unit
Using the high level input on the 3sixty, it's configured to use full range for all doors with HP, and subs in rear with LP.
I am swapping my alt out for a mechman with a 1.75 inch pulley. I measured my stock pulley to be 2.5 inches. The belt for my car is approx. 84.5 inches. What size belt would i need.
In order to swap my alternator out i need to remove the front passenger tire so using the "try multiple belt sizes until it fits" isn't the best approach for me
Any help would be appreciated.
We had a customer that came to us wanting to upgrade the stock stereo system in his 2002 Ford Excursion to Skar Audio! He wanted it to be loud but also wanted it to sound clean, so we went to work!
What we installed:
3 Pairs of Skar Audio RPX68's
2 Skar Audio VD-12's in a custom built enclosure
1 Skar Audio LP-80.4ABv2 4-Channel Amplifier
1 Skar Audio LP-1000.1D Monoblock Amplifier
1 Pioneer AVH-X4700BS Head Unit
1 Back Up Camera
1 Audiovox 13.3" Flip Down Monitor
