    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I was head unit shopping last week. I was torn between the chinese Android units and the name brand shit. I wanted something with Nav so I didn't have to rely on my phone, but everything is stupid over-priced. Crutchfield had a decent Jensen unit for $250 and specs that matched all the big boys AND a 2 year warranty where others had 1, so it comes in today and I open the literature and it states the warranty is only 1 year. I called their hotline and they tell me it's only 1 year. Going to have to call Crutchfield tomorrow and return this thing I think. I also got the Metra harness with it because it retains all the factory functions, but come to find out, the factory sub will not work unless I buy another adapter for the RCAs. Nope. Not what they advertised and not what I wanted. i have NEVER had a problem with Crutchfield before, and this two errors are just so stupid I can't even believe they happened.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    So, I worked all weekend sweating my ass off. It culminated today with some customers coming in from NJ and I had to train an entire family. It was easy money, but painfully long and drawn out. Literally outside in the blazing sun and humidity all day. Get home and the house is hot. Air is running, but the condenser is not on. Go out and cut some weeds down around the unit. Find the refrigerant line appears to have had something fall on it. It's too damaged to try to repair, and the unit is 30+ years old anyways, so it's kinda pointless. I started doing some shopping and HD has a split system I can buy, but the cheapest one is $2500, so I'm just going to get fucked here once I pay someone else to do it and buy a unit from them. Fucked up day.

    sound system in an Hybrid car ?

    They still have a standard 12VDC charging system. The hybrid system is separate and self-contained. You won't have anything to worry about. Just pull the main fuse on the orange cables before working on anything.

    Anyone use any of the micro amps on the market? I'm looking for something to power some planar tweets.
  5. I personally never go more than 5Hz below tuning. I would start there and see if you can go any lower before it starts unloading.

    I would use a modulating gas valve. On/off would be too inconsistent. I'm with you on the embedded thermocouple though. Just make sure it's as tight as can be. Even a small air pocket is an insulator and can easily provide an error factor of 10 degrees.

    Noob help for Corvette owner

    Streaming is a horrible idea for good sound. I can't comment too much more because we are just missing too much information, but I would venture to bet there are some phasing and/or cancellation issues present here. Any competent shop should have been able to handle that though. I am a bit suspect of the shop right now. Hopefully something just went wrong and they can get you on the right track. And just so you know, we require pics!

    I can get MDX for the same price as RDX, so I am going for room. I am not too concerned with driving dynamics, rather comfort.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    4 Runner is Tacoma based. I do not want a full-frame vehicle. I want unibody construction. This has to ride like a car. As of now, I am down to the Edge Sport or MKX if I can find one under $30K, RX350, Highlander, or MDX.
