thanks zhp43867

i'd like to point out something about the Rolf Resler interface (at least the USB version) for anyone having trouble getting it to work.

i don't have my steering wheel controls working as of yet, but according to Driiven, getting the interface to function properly requires the use of a constant +12v and ground in conjunction with the normal IBUS pin of the 3-pin connector in the trunk. the power and ground provided by this 3-pin connector may function with the serial version of the interface, but due to initialization issues the USB version won't function properly and quirky things with your lighting system can occur unless you use a constant power and ground.

I am doing a sedan front speakers. Were you able to use all the three post around the front speaker for door card tabs. This is the one that secures to the metal door when its snapped in. It seems like you have to cut one on the inside?

Nice post.
Thanks

I can't believe I missed this thread the first time! Great write up Orion! Makes me want to get a SSD and get those boot times down too.

I had to cut one of the posts when doing my front speaker install. I don't feel like it's prevent the door panel from holding firmly to the metal, but maybe my clips are just in good shape. It seems like a few people have been able to install the speakers without cutting anything.

I used 6.5" speakers, so if you're really worried, you may want to stick with 5.25" speakers.

Thanks B-Man, I don't have my boot times down that low currently, something related to the initialization of the terabyte data drive. When I was running on the SSD without the big drive in, it was ridiculously fast.


Apparently some people can't see the pics? I'm not sure what's Photobucket's deal, but maybe try a different browser first?
