Hi all,

Thought i'd start this thread to openly playa hate on anyone or anything in SA.

I'll start with a series of photo's i have on my phone of crap cars with either crappy plates or stickers.

A commodore with "Australian Made" and an Element sticker - well done mate you're a true patriot.

Why do people get license plates that simply state their car's model and colour?

Anything with a unit sticker, especially when combined with other retard stickers.

Next up - this shoe - saw it when i was walking past Miss Gladys Sym Choon's on Rundle street. Needless to say these atrocities had quite the price tag on them too!

oooh fun fun...

what i hate is people who have no idea about anything to do with anything and think installing their own car audio is a good idea, seriously why spend $3000 on a stereo then go hmmm, cant be too hard to install, il have a go at it... before breaking everything? then you wonder why it doesnt work and take it to a pro who has to spend hours untangling your horrible mess and figureing out wtf you were trying to do Posted Image

i dont even know what this mess is but it was in a $70000+ land rover
Posted Image

and a nice new top of the line viper alarm... the wires are black for a reason, extending them with coloured ones kinda defeats the point... also if you dont own pliers or a soldering iron dont try install it at home!
Posted Image

also if you dont own a screwdriver you cant install your own speakers, these didnt even have scratches on the basket from attempting to put screws in, wtf?
Posted Image

its really not that difficult to cut all of the head unit wires the same length and neatly tie them up after you connect them all... and dont even get me started on twist+tape
Posted Image

then we come to grommets, yes they are there for a reason, no you cant bypass them to run power wires to your caravan plug in your brand new territory, it will burn to the ground.
Posted Image

and last but not least... props to you for using a fuse on the power wire to your 4 channel in your S15, but if the fuse is thicker than the wire going into it it kinda defeats the purpose:

ok guys, this one was so f#cked i had to give it its own post...

this install was done by a very reputable shop in Adelaide that has been a big player in getting SA comps off the ground so im very dissapointed to say the least... i dont know the full story so im not going to name names just yet but PM me if you want to know

if the shop that did it happens to see this id love to hear your side of the story!

the car is a WH statesman, a bit thrashed but you get that in noarlunga lol, the stereo consisted of alpine type R splits in the factory spots in the front, matching coaxials in the parcel shelf and the factory 2 ohm coaxes in the rear doors, all hooked up to the kenwood head unit... i have no idea how the head unit still worked with the rear speakers paralled giving it probably 1.3ohms ish :o

the parcel shelf speakers were mounted pretty solidly on the factory spacers with 8"-6.5" adapter plates, but the grills weren't right and weren't even close to straight:
Posted Image

Posted Image

after pulling the head unit out i found one of the biggest messes ive seen:
Posted Image

the kenwood loom was crimp connected onto ISO plugs, which were then plugged into a factory-iso adapter, the factory wiring had been hacked aswell and was crimp connected back together:
Posted Image

now to the sub amp, it was an "1800w" kenwood monoblock, screwed to the back of the fold down ski port, but was too big for the ski port to fold back up and close, it had 3x 30a fuses but was only running an 8ga power and earth, and the speaker terminals were bridged together for some crazy reason (the short speaker wires in this pic used to be joined together)
Posted Image

heres the 8ga fuseholder cable tied onto the battery wiring:
Posted Image

the sub was a dual 4ohm pioneer 12" wired to 2ohm in the prefab pioneer box and was rok strapped to the car to stop it sliding, the straps werent screwed in properly though:
Posted Image

:unsure:

and here it is after i spent all day pulling it all out and starting again...

first the head unit crap was cut out and the kenwood loom directly soldered and taped onto what was left of the stock wiring:
Posted Image

the stock rear speakers were disconnected and we sold the customer a 4 channel kenwood amp to run the type rs front and rear

then i ran some 4ga from the battery to the boot with a bracket made up to hold the fuse holder using a factory bolt:
Posted Image

the 4ga was then split into a 4ga to the monoblock and 8ga to the 4 channel under the back seat, with the speaker wires and RCAs neatly cable tied:
Posted Image

Posted Image

then i relocated the amps to the back of the seat, this is the 4 channel, the monoblock was a mirror image on the other side, i forgot to take a pic...
Posted Image

and finally re screwed the rock straps onto the sub box, cut of the 2ish meters of excess strap and screwed them back onto the car... a quick tune and it sounded and looked much better!

result = happy customer :yahoo:

I'm lost, is this for South Oz members or is it SA because the OP is Sorin Andrei?
