Hi Prue84,


Check to see if your Brake light switch is stuck. When you get out of the car, go to back and look to see if any lights are on. This will kill your battery in a few hours.  The Orion Xtr12 has nothing to do with killing a Battery.

I have 2 DB drive 10 subs dvc 4ohm each VC (pt10d4) my amp is mono block 1ohm 3200 watts how to hook up series or parallel?

parallel is all positives (Red+) to all + and then keep all the negative's (Black -) together hooking them to the amp. if you dont have the big 3 upgrade (extra battery thick wire 0-4 AWG wire and an extra battery) keep it to 2 or 4 ohms and google impedance calculator and go from there. also just because your amp is 1 ohm stable doesn't mean it won't break it at 1 ohm and cranked up all the way

Hi,i bought an 04 fiat stilo 3 weeks ago. the radio worked fine on the way back from dealers but then stopped all of a sudden a week later,the very next day the whole car battery was drained and had to get...

If your battery keeps dying, I recommend you get the alternator checked. I must admit that I chuckled a little at your post (having AA look at your car, I'm sure you meant AAA). If you need the code for your radio, you can go to But I would have your alternator looked at first. This may be the source of a draining battery. If it's ok, you might want to have a mechanic look at the vehicle.

How much air space is need for a sealed encloser

are you sharing the air space or building a divider to give each driver its own air space

these speakers or not made for low end bass these woofer are meant for mid bass high bass
  • 6.5'' High Power Subwoofer
  • Non-Press paper Cone
  • Specially Treated Foam Edge Suspension
  • 1.5'' High Temperature Aluminum Voice Coil
  • Magnet Weight: 40 Oz
  • Impedance: 4 Ohm
  • Fs: 80Hz, Qms: 4.05, Qes: 1.3, Qts: 1.2, SPL: 87(dB), Vas: 6.8(Cuft)
  • Mounting Depth: 3"
  • Rubber magnet Boot Cover fers are
  • there is only 3 " of mounting depth needed i would build you door pannel out fiberglass a door pod and mount them on the door if you have a factory speaker there . then run to the amp and turn the x-over on to high pass and them use them as a mid bass driver up front for the front sound stage for get about them as a subwoofer get the lanzar 10's or 12's

    i mounted a set of ma audio 8" subs on my 03 s-10 door the speaker fit in the 6.5 location had to trime the door metal and space them out a little cause the 4.75 mounting worked and then i ran the them in 2 ohm stereo to my 4 channel amp and used the high pass crossover to run them as a mid bass driver works great for me . ma audio 500 watt dual 4 ohms 8" subs each i had 250watts to each sub.

    you could build a small enclosure just big enough to fit the 6.5 woofer you could build a dual camber enclosure like 8wx5dx8h internale air space would be 0.18

    15 wx5dx8h would give you 0.347 share the air space this is internal air space

    What is size of box for orion xtr 353 sub woofer

    If your looking to build a box yourself, build it as big as you can, and still be able to fit in your vehicle. Same goes if your buying one. There are no certain specs for a sub box as long as the speaker fits. The bigger the box the more bass. ( Up to the speakers capabilities )

    90cc quad bike (chinese we think)


    If I understand your concern right, whenever you connect the battery, the quad's starter motor will run even when the ignition is OFF.

    The only possibility I could think of is that the starter relay's contact are fused together. Normally, the relay's contact should only connect when the ignition is on, the starter button is pressed and I believe in some versions/models, one of the hand brake levers is pulled in.

    Since these products come in two (2) versions two stroke and four stroke and manufactured by quite a number of firms, there is no standard repair procedure.

    If the big red or + wire from the battery goes to the starter motor directly, then the possible fused contacts are inside the motor assembly itself but distinct from the motor;

    If the big red or + wire from the battery goes to a squarish small box, which is a power/starter relay, then the possible fused contacts are inside that small box. That box would have two big wires, one from the + of the battery as earlier stated and another going to the starter motor. Additionally, it would have 1 or 2 smaller wires. One would go to the starter button switch and the other to the ground. It is also possible that it is connected to the ground if it has got a metal body and therefore would only have 1 small wire.

    If you have verified that it is the latter (using a relay), then you need to replace that relay.

    In some instances, it could be the starter switched that has fused together its contacts though this rarely happens.

    If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, try to pls post back with pictures of where the + big battery wire goes to.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    Car stereo im trying to build

    I guess the question you need to ask yourself then is how much money are you willing to spend? If you are looking for a sound quality system then it WILL cost a lot more than a DB all out BASS system. The system that you have picked out isn't a bad one but as with all systems this in only half the story. You will need to have it installed well to get the best from the speakers that you have chosen too. If you want to have the stealth look in the cabin then it's pretty simple, but you will not get the best sound quality or should I say imaging as the OEM locations usually are no good for this.

    I would suggest that even though you keep things looking stealthy in the cabin apply sound deadening to the doors as Asian cars are generally quite tinny unlike German cars. This will make a big difference in terms of overall sound quality & help keep out the road noise so you can hear every little detail of your personalised system.
