Re: head boppers no workie (S60 t5er)

When you press the button, do you hear the solenoids activating?<br>If the solenoids do not activate, check the fuse. If the fuse is ok, check the cabling to the solenoids. Ask someone to push the button while you monitor with a multimeter at the solenoids. If it shows 12v, then the solenoids are bad.

Re: head boppers no workie (ig_mb)

thanks for the input, I will try that when the weather lightens up here a bit, quite a bit of rain this weekend. Anyone know which fuse to check, or atleast what compartment? I am assuming it would probably be inside next to the dash.

Re: (darylkaiser31)

Subs are SUPER easy to install in an S60. The battery is already in the trunk, so there are no wires to run at all throughout the car. For the pre-ins just get a hi-level converter, (I find no need to connect to the deck with a cable, as this is only for subs, so you are not really going to hear a difference - if I was going to amp the speakers, definitely use a cable) and connect to rear deck speakers. For the remote wire I just tapped into the DRL circuit...i know i know...but it works, and the amp only comes on when the key is in pos. two, just what I wanted. ( my AWD had a switched 12v source in the rear fuse block, my T5 doesn't so this is what I used)

That's handy! I'm now actually thinking of just mounting a small 2-channel amp on the underside of the rear deck between the speakers to give them a little more juice. Does anyone know how difficult it would be to swap out the stock rear deck speakers? Please advise.

Maybe a bit rich for my blood, but I bet it sounds superb. Personally, I just want to add some power to my system. I'll settle for the stock HU-650 deck, but it just needs more JUICE! I have the Volvo 3-way components in the front door, which are pretty decent. I'm having some Polk db650 put into the rear doors, and am debating about the rear deck. I was thinking it would be pretty slick to install a couple 8" Polk Momo subs in place of the stock 8" coaxial. Anyway, what rating 4-channel do you have for the door speakers and where is it hidden?<BR><BR>

Re: (darylkaiser31)

the 4 channel is model MRP-F450. 140 watts per channel at 2 ohms. 70 watts per channel at 4 ohms. The ratings are continous power (RMS), peak power is much higher. Since i have a sub box in the trunk, all 3 of my amps are mounted on the back of the box out of sight. It might be a good idea to look at mounting it under the back seat cushion if there is enough room there.

I attempted to remove the rear seat cushion today, but after my little experiment with the speaker grills, I'll leave well enough alone for the time being. I'm also a bit concerned about heat dissipation, so the underside of the rear deck seems like a decent location as long as the unit isn't too big. I need to keep my trunk space!<p>

Re: (darylkaiser31)

should be able to mount it upside down underneath the rear deck. Might be a bit harder to screw it right on to the metal and also connect all the speakers wires while being upside down, but managable.
