  1. I added the 2019 volume knob to my 2017 EX-L!

    I tried it, but that knob doesn't function at all when the headlights are off. I did some more experimenting and found that what it's actually tied to is whether the headlights are on or off when the car is started. So it's not directly related to the car's light-sensing, but just related to...
  2. Amp Wiring Harness Bypass Feedback

    Strange, that link doesn't work, but I was able to search for the product using the part number in the link, and when I found it, the link was exactly the same as what you posted. But, did you post the wrong link? That product is only a 2-pin connector:
  3. I added the 2019 volume knob to my 2017 EX-L!

    I can't find a way to. The closest I can find is "Auto Interior Illumination Sensitivity", but that says it's for the entire instrument panel, and also, it doesn't have an Off setting. The lowest it goes is Min, but that's already what I have it on. I guess I should try it with Max to see...
  4. I added the 2019 volume knob to my 2017 EX-L!

    I spoke too soon when I said this is working perfectly for me. The auto brightness adjustment of the screen isn't working. On a bright day, the display looks fine when I start my car in my garage, but when I get out into the sunlight, it's REALLY dim. Sometimes I can't read it at all. But...
  5. Axxess AXDSPX-HN3 specs: bypass amp on 12 speaker audio of Sport Touring/Type R?

    Reading the instructions, it says to totally remove the factory amp from the car. So, it MUST be using the digital SPDIF signal for its input, because that's the only thing coming out of the car's headunit. There's nothing else it could be using. This is great! The fact that it says it...
  6. Will Polk DB6502s fit my car?

    They're not wrong: But you could easily take a Dremel tool or a file or some sandpaper and grind the hole slightly bigger to make those fit. The ugly result should be covered by the front ring of the new tweeter so it won't matter, looks-wise. You can also get rid of that ring and pretty...
  7. Tweeter connectors? - adapter harness to factory tweeter wire?

    I just bought an extra set of OEM tweeters and cut the connectors off of them. They're only like $16/each, so not that much more than a harness would have cost if one was available. Not quite as nice as a proper harness, but better than cutting the factory wires.
  8. I added the 2019 volume knob to my 2017 EX-L!

    Man, thanks for taking a chance on this! After seeing your post, I picked up a headunit from a 2019 EX with just 2400 miles on it for $125 off eBay. My car is a Touring, so I knew wouldn't be able to swap the entire headunits, but swapping the screen from one to the other worked perfectly...
  9. Can’t get audio to play from USB while watching videos

    Have you checked the video files on a computer to see what audio format their audio is? If they're any kind of multi-channel format instead of stereo, the headunit probably doesn't have the necessary codecs to understand them. If that's the case, you'd need to reencode the audio portion of...
  10. HELP! iPod Skip

    If it's at the beginning of audio tracks - i.e. when you change tracks, you get static during the first 5 seconds or so, then the problem can be fixed by removing the album art from all your files. I also get it sometimes when loading a large playlist and in those cases, it doesn't go away...
  11. Audio Upgrade with new DSP w/ stock Head Unit, Need some opinions/advice

    Yeah, the OEM volume control will work doing it that way.
  12. Audio Upgrade with new DSP w/ stock Head Unit, Need some opinions/advice

    FYI, if you use the SPDIF, you won't be able to control the volume from the headunit. The Helix probably has an optional accessory you can buy to control the volume through it with a rotary knob instead, but I personally wouldn't want to give up the steering wheel volume controls, or the...
  13. Anyone else have a Phoenix PX6 10.4" Android HU?

    There is your problem. What you've done here is hooked the speaker outputs on your new headunit to a connector in the dash that doesn't have any wires that run to any of the car's speakers. That's why you're getting no sound. To clarify further, the cheaper Civic models have a headunit that...
  14. Touring Subwoofer Possibly blown

    Though it's not for a Touring, here's a video showing how to remove the rear deck to get the factory sub out (the process is the same):
  15. I have a 2019 Honda Civic SI with premium sound system- sub woofer advice

    To add to the above, I think the idea of wanting a "true" source is misguided. For one thing, the DSP inside the factory amp has already modified the signal you'd be tapping into. The other thing is, modern processors like the LC2i are extremely good about adding very little distortion to the...
  16. After Market Headunit for the Premium-Audio-System?

    If you want to JUST replace the headunit, then no. If you're planning to install a new amp and speakers too, then yes. You'd just install the headunit, run its audio outputs back to your new amp, and run the amp's outputs to your new speakers.
  17. Anyone Succesfully auto-starting the DSP Flat script?

    This is normal. A flat output sounds like absolute garbage in a car. Typically a curve something like this is what people aim for when tuning an aftermarket DSP: This flat DSP stuff is mostly a red herring. The only time it's needed is when you have another music source in the car you also...
  18. Need suggestions on Door Tweeters

    You can make it fit pretty easily. Here's my tweeter, which has a 2" (51mm) frame diameter: Some details on the installation of it here Based on the small amount of plastic I had to trim out, I think 1.758" will fit with no trimming.
  19. A new - better Direct TPMS system

    There's another advantage, too, based on an experience I had two weeks ago. I left home and thought something felt strange with how my car was accelerating as soon as I pulled out of my driveway. Once I was up to speed, I turned my radio off to see if anything sounded strange, and it did...
  20. Issues with high output alternator.

    Ah, that does make sense, and makes it seem odd that it would light up everything else on the dash. The voltage being too high seems like the only likely explanation to me, too.
