Right now the tweeter is on the door on the black piece trim and sits right above the dash when you close the door. No I wasn’t able to get the 4” to sit in the dash. [emoji24] if I had the right tools I might be able to cut into the dash where the factory hole is to make it sit in but right now the magnet is preventing it from sitting due to not enough depth. I’m planning on fabricating the pillars to hold both the 4” and the tweeter so that they’re both facing towards each respective seat. I would say definitely do the 3 way. The sound is just so much more distinctive than the 2 way. So for now the dash panel piece is just sitting on top with the pillars holding it in place.
I installed the Hertz ESK 163L.5 for my front stage powered by the Alpine PDR F50 4 channel amp. Bridged the outputs to run 140watts to each channel. I messed up with the dash speakers. So will end up fabricating the pillars to hold the tweeter and 4” midrange.... eventually. Whenever I have time. Sounds phenomenal. And overall very pleased with the sound.
Ichie123 replied to Bradford's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMThe lcq1 is the upgrade from the lc7i. I didn’t have to upgrade my speakers. I had originally wanted to keep the factory HU until the alpine came out and had planned to upgrade all my speakers with it so I went ahead and got the lc7i. Do note I had the Bose audio so the sub wiring was already there to take the signal from. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Could be either. I had the same issue a few months after i got mine. I can’t remember exactly which one i replaced as I’ve had to replace both the relays and the igniter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Try swapping the relays with new ones. Just Bc you can hear them clicking doesn’t mean they’re working. My sisters were clicking but wasn’t turning on. Replaced with spare relays i had a viola. If it’s not that it could be the igniter going out. I think that was my first replacement.
Not all the connections. Just the speakers wires. Everything should work the same. The amp is still powered and working in the background. The bose amp just powers the speakers. Onstar and all of that are on another module.
I haven’t used one but I’ve bypassed enough to know it will. Used to work at a car audio shop. Essentially all it’s doing it’s taking the harness that feeds the speaker inputs from the radio to the new harness and connect to your input on the amp. Then the other harness hooks into where the speaker wires output from the amp would be so that it’s a direct line to the speakers.
So. My body shop who’s a family friend told me that the previous models 2007-2013 had this same issues. The issue is the paint never adhered to the primer. He said it was very common on the white trucks but he hadn’t seen it happen on the new styles. Im going to take mine by a dealership to see if they’ll remedy it even though I’m well past warranty. (I drive a lot) mines a 2015. He quoted me 1500 for both doors Bc they have to strip the trim then completely strip all the paint and repaint.
