    Any 7 series out there?

    I have a pair of 750IL's, one black one gold. E32 shape, I quite fancy an E38 but they are still a bit above my pay grade.

    Car Audio Step By Step

    I'm from Livingston and my wife is from wishaw. Been down here 10 years now. Can you think of any other useful data to include, off the top of my head I'm thinking what main fuse to use for what power of system.

    Car Audio Step By Step

    I'm Scottish, I just live here. As for fibreglassing, I'm not a very practical person, that's why do it, there's no equation or formula for a perfect fibreglas install. Its all about the numbers with me, but if love to read a how to if you can make one, or a link to a good one. 5mm...

    Car Audio Step By Step

    That's a great idea, as I know it would help a few peeps, as long as they measured the core it would work. Some cables for amps have really thin core, but really thick insulation. Off topic, are you Scottish or just live there?

    1995 bmw 740 il

    I'll have a look are what bits are available for the 740 but I can understand why you went to a dealer as anything for a 7 is like rocking horse poo. Took me 4 weeks to get an oil filter for the 750 and that was from a main dealer.

    500 rpm?

    an hour and half seems a long time to change a sensor and clear fault codes. It takes about 30 secs to clear fault codes (although i do charge £25 for hooking the scanner up) but the coolant sensor should have taken 30 mins tops.

    so how does it work then?

    although you could use a 4 channel amp, i would use 2x 2channel amps, that way each amp could have the gain set correctly for each set of speakers, a 250w rms 2 channel would be fine for the 6x9, and mabey a 300w or 400w rms 2 channel for the subs (or a monoblock, with the subs parallell - if...

    Car Audio Step By Step

    Yeah I had a look at them, but they seemed more concerned with what more than how or why. They are very clear, so I will try and emulate that, but I will focus more on why a particular device is used, and how to wire it. If possible I will include the formulas for working things out, as well...

    Speaker \ohms

    Exactly what Paul said. If you have crossovers then why are you trying to connect them together?

    Speaker \ohms

    The majority of car audio speakers are 8 ohm, therefore you could run 2 in parallel and the result would be 4 ohm, which would be within spec, but with an 8 and a 4 life gets interesting. Tbh though you could probably get away with parallel providing you don't Max the headinit.

    interior neons

    And don't forget to put a fuse in, as close as possible to where you tapped the live wire, and deffo before the switch if putting a switch in. For leds a 3 amp fuse is more than enough usually.

    Stealing the eletrics for my car

    its possible, but an awful lot of work for very little reward. by the time you have modified the motors etc, youd be there for weeks, - if its aftermarket alarm/immob/central locking that shoukd be easy enough - if not then its most probably tied to the ecu, again possible but pointless - it...

    Speaker \ohms

    why is this? for a BIG install I find a series/parrallel configuration best, as by mixing series and parallel you can match the impedence of the speakers to that of the driving amp - allowing you to maximise output without dropout or overdriving your amp.

    Car Audio Step By Step

    would anyone be interested in a step by step guide to *wiring* a car audio system, covering headunits, screens, amps, speakers, crossovers, power caps, twin batteries , what type of wire to use, and what thickness, etc. it would be step by step, but entirely technical - i appologise but i dont...
