sod it, lol, i might just rip it all out then i think the speakers are fine, they are pretty new looking and a good quality make, id probably lean towards an internal amp issue, but i dont like how the whole setup is wired up tbh. so i couldnt rule out a wiring issue thats unseen.

i used to play about with car electrics at a local backstreet garage a few years ago, and even amongst that lot of cowboys if anything was wired up like this, they would be sacked on the spot.

Shoddy doesnt even begin to describe it.

I'll have one more play with the setup tomorrow morning, if its still dead, i'll rip it out and wire the setup right like i had in my old cinq.

Cheers, i may well take you up on that offer , i dont currently have the car though , its in a workshop getting the clutch finished (going to be touch and go for Stirling! :eek , but maybe next week sometime?,

no fuses for the system under the bonnet, just a load of haphazard wiring/amps and speakers that dont do alot except for shorting some wires against the rear seatback

Btw, i was going to ask if the astra had a new exhaust before i saw this post, lol, you drove past me twice yesterday and i thought it was sounding really good! , its also looking ace actuallY!!!!!!

well plenty o cleaning stuff here if you want to borrow any

and as for the fuse thing i have a spare 200 amp ish circuit breaker for installs lying around somewhere which is much better than the inline fuses as you just press a button to disconnect the flow of power to the amp so much simpler

and yeah fitted the exhaust yesterday afternoon and its getting insanley loud now dont know if i will be able to take it much more haha i got a full race system with no silencers just one big pipe ill post a quick vid of the phone for ya although the mic is dying in the phone i think its getting a bit hissy may jhust need a clean though

Thanks

the astras sounding awesome, i could really hear it brilliantly when you pulled away from the junction in front of me , its sounds really sinister at low speeds!

Its looking great too, i think somebodys copying your style tho, i spied a black one with german style plates in the Ferry today with similar wheels and spoiler, didnt sound as good or have HID's though

Ta , its going fairly well considering its running in a totally temporary state atm it's away to get a punto 75 cam fitted within the next 2 weeks,then later a mccritch chip and the interior changed a bit in time for st andrews

I'm now also running fractionally higher fuel pressure thanks to a little tinkering , its amazing what difference thats made, all the flatspots have been ironed out now, feels like i've found another 5bhp or so since stirling (even though i know i havent )
