I was going to swap out the stock speakers and add a 4-channel amp for them, but after testing the ohm loads on all of them, they're great to begin with (at least for the 2006 model).
The mounting wasn't hard at all. You just need an electric drill and a few self-tapping screws. The sub and the box are heavy enough where it doesn't move around too bad. I haven't had to strap it down yet.lumpypumpkin said:How is the Sub box mounted...or does it just move arround in the trunk.
And how hard was it to mount the amp to the back of the seat?
Try running the wire straight to the inside fuse box (driver's side dash panel). There should be a fuse you can wrap a wire around there. I normally install sound systems myself (I should post pics of my old civic's setup), but I just didn't have the time when I first bought the car so I had KarTunes of Sterling, VA install it. They used some module that would trigger the amp to turn on when the volume reached a certain level. The reason being is that the radio can still play while the car is off, so if you don't have the module, your amp won't be powered unless the key is in the ignition (it's not a necessity, but it's a nice feature).GTi 4 Life said:[help] I have fiited a JBl 12" sub with a Earhquake amp to drive it. I cant find a power source to connect the remote wire to. All the points I have tried seem to be permanent power. I have tried both the cigarette lighters , but that is also permanent power. Any idea where I can connect the remote wire to so that the amp will swith off when the key is removed???
