  1. As for Planet Audio, they are a "budget" company and being owned by Boss just makes that even worse. No way around it. Searching the net, I can find that amplifier for anywhere from $150-$180. This is super cheap, especially for a 5 channel amp. I am not knocking it, just stating facts. I have used several cheap 5 channel amps from China and they all have had discrepancies in the manual. It's just the norm with this stuff.
  2. The Sony manual on their website shows both red and white RCAs used for the sub output. As with 99% of amplifiers on the market, the two stereo signals and then internally summed in the amplifier to output a mono signal. I'm still lost on your harness issues though. If you're powering the speakers via the Planet Audio amplifier, then the speaker wire from the amp gets hooked into the speakers. If you previously had them powered by the internal amp of the headunit, you need to disconnect them from the headunit and then you can hook the wires from the amp back into the wires that terminate at the speakers. The headunit is simply using the RCA cables to send a signal to the amp, then the amp outputs that signal directly into the speakers, so you no longer need the speaker wires coming from the headunit hooked up to anything. Wait, wait, wait. . . I see the amp has high level inputs as well. IS this what you are talking about? You are using the RCA outputs from the headunit into the amp AND the high level plugs on the amp as well? If that is the case, simply unplug the high level inputs. Those are for headunits that do not have RCA outputs. As for the midranges in the dash, since you already have a passive crossover network on them, simply hook them into the front channels of the amp along with the door speakers in parallel.
  3. So, the sub RCA outputs from the head unit are indeed stereo. The one you have labeled as "unidentified" above should be the white RCA and obviously the red is the red. That's how it's shown in the manual, in Sony photos, and I have two Sony headunits that are setup the same way. I don't quite understand what you're asking in regards to the speakers. You state they are hooked up to the headunit, but you have a 5 channel amp, so why are you not powering them with the amplifier versus the headunit? GO with the terminal labeling on the amp itself. Manuals are often screwed up, especially with budget brands. Even if it's wrong, all you have to do is swap the 4 speaker wires, or two RCA plugs.

    The mechanics in the door are super impressive! Someone is a design genius for Korea Motors!

    The C4 is stronger than the AOD. Just missing OD. I'd find a 2WD Explorer or Mountaineer with the 5.0 and snatch the 4R70W out of that with a trans controller. Far more stout than the AOD with the ability to cobtrol shifts and converter lockup.

    NO idea. I'd try it at $60.

    I think JBL/Parrot made one too.

    Sony used to make one similar to that.
  13. Looks like a Dayton Ultimax with a custom dustcap.

    Looks GREAT! Wonder how it would look with the enclosure white and vent black.

    I won't spend more than $100 on a phone.

    It's pretty difficult to do things with one arm.

    I just got tracking info. It'll be here Saturday! Can't wait to get started on some stuff!

    It's killing us too. I can't even get simple O-rings as there is a rubber/EPDM/Nitrile/Butyl shortage.
  20. The Orions are great amps! I have no experience with Sundown, but JAcob has always put out a solid product.
  21. I just purchased a 3D printer and I've seen some tutorials on how you can use your camera phone and/or an Xbox Kinnect as a 3D scanner.

    I could really use some pew pew therapy right now. I can't even hold my damn arm up though, let alone some steel and polymer.
  23. Those are hard to beat for price per watts. How much power do you want and how much do you want to spend?
  24. Are you unable to construct one yourself?

    Aura used to make some. Good luck finding them though. If you can wait a couple weeks, my 3D printer should be in.
