Wiring Diagram Help

Hey guys, need some help confirming that everything looks accurate in the attached diagram. Just want to make sure I have everything covered. My 4-channel amp requires a remote turn on but it looks like the LC7i has the ability to turn it on directly through a remote out terminal. I will be installing 6.5" components up front, 6.5" speakers in the rear doors, and adding a subwoofer.

Any reviews and comments would be greatly appreciated!!

Re: Wiring Diagram Help

Greetings,


Check out the fuse box for a tap:

OR,

Use the GTO function of the LC7 as described on page 2 of the manual:

FYI, some folks here in the past used the LC7 and they did not like the results. For more on that you will have to search this forum.

Hope this helps and enjoy the tunes.

Best for now.

Re: Wiring Diagram Help

1stJeepGC,

Thanks for the response. I am going to use the GTO feature as shown on the diagram if I go with the LC7i, assuming it works properly. If not, I'll tap into the radio harness or fuse box as you described.

I have done a lot of research on these forums and the RAM forum and am aware of some of the bad results people have had with all Audio Control devices, specifically adding noise to the system. I am going to call Audio Control today to see what they about this complaint. Is there anything else to really be concerned about?

I really don't want to go with a higher end, more complex unit that adds an EQ and requires RTA/laptop such as the MS-8/BitOne yet. My ears aren't that sensitive and I don't have the time to learn about tuning them yet.

Re: Wiring Diagram Help

I spoke with Audio Control and they really recommended only summing the tweeters and front woofer after reviewing the frequency charts posted in a separate post here. They also put my mind to ease about the noise issues a few people have reported. Many variables go into introducing noise into the system and I feel pretty confident I can avoid these. I'm most likely going with the DQ-61 now as I spend 95% of my time in the car commuting so I can take advantage of the delay features.

Greetings,

No worries.

In your case, I agree to sum the fronts only and leave out the sub from the equation. You can play with delays to bring the sound forward. It a psycho acoustic trick that many of us do. The xover settings are pretty good from the factory to work with.

If you find the surround sound not to be of you liking, than you have to go the full Monty as they say. This will for sure break the bank. If hit my link on my signature section, you can read part 3 of my setup on how to cure the problem. Warning, I will not be responsible for breaking your piggy bank.


Good luck and let us know the outcome.

Best for now.

Thanks for your help 1stJeep. I've read enough about it to know that it is all or nothing but am hoping to semi hit the middle of the road by doing more than just switching out the speakers but less than full overhaul with high end speakers. I already had the components, 4channel amp, sub, fuses, and wiring so this setup should suffice and not cost too much for the additional parts. Everything is ordered and on it's way! Now just have to figure out if there is any possible way to use my nice battery terminal on the post but it isn't looking good.
