Could do that, you'd be supprised how long it takes to write these little tutorials and get the pics.

I would like to have a Car Audio Day at someone's place in melb were people can bring their car and talk about installation techniques and bring there gear and we can actually do a number of installations on cars in one day. Everyone could get a hand and see how things can be done.

Not sre how hard it would be to pull together....

Problem is we need acces to some other facilities.

- Workbench's
- Power and power tools

Toilets

Someone with a big backyard and good sized shed would be best.

pyroay <-- you are a champ. I have been wondering about OHMS etc for ages... thanks for the nice tute! Appreciate it. You don't know anyone by chance who may be wanting to make a LCD housing to replace the "pop-up" lid that is in the centre of a Territory's dash? :P

Trying to do it myself with fibreglass and it's looking a bit dodgy! hehe

Thanks again, and nice work, very VERY useful information.

Start a new thread on the lid your trying to create and see if people can give you some input. When i see it i may be able to help?

There are a few nice tricks when it comes to fibreglassing

Hey Aaron just curious, even if youve got an amp located in a area that is relativly spacious and allows for decent airflow etc.. Are their much gains in adding a small fan to cool down the amp.. I have that 2 channel Axis amp that i bought off of you, would thier be much point in adding a small fan to disperse more heat?

I was going to do it when i first bought it off of ya, but then once i installed it, it looked like it would of been fine ne way..

Cheers dude.

I prefer to do things throughly during the initial install then you dont have to re-visit it later and everything works to its maximum

I usually install fans near every amp in installs i complete
Even a small fan mounted nearby can offer a 100% cooling benefit.

Okay cool so what type of fans do you usually go for i mean their are a s**t of different ones.. What about the computer CPU fans you can buy? Would a place like Jaycar sell these?

Cheers.

Yes computer fans are fine, Jaycar has a good selection.

Look at the noise they make as well as the airflow. It is important to have the quietest one's possible.
Also when you mount them you need to use sound deadener all around to stop the pannel they are bolted to from humming with the fan speed.

Great thats the way, my phoenix amps is 113db so i'm fine. People often ask why spend extra money on amps, there is one of the answers..... No introduced noise, at any volume.
