    Amp Setup For My Ae92

    The only issue I ran into when i wanted to amp all 4 was that there are only 2 RCA ports on the back of my HU, is this normal? if so how do i wire it up?

    Amp Setup For My Ae92

    I'm unfamiliar with setups, i was told this would be better for my current as the 4" couldnt handle the amp, also i'd only get 75Watt per speaker at 4ohm if i run 4 speakers off it

    Amp Setup For My Ae92

    it sounds good. but most of the sound comes from the rear as thats where all the power is at. the fronts produce highs so it sounds kind of unbalanced.

    Amp Setup For My Ae92

    Hey there! I recently bought an amp in order to experience some good sounnds, however I'm completely useless when it comes to audio setups. As of current I installed and wired up the amp (Hertz HCP 4D 4ch) I have 4" type S in the front dash, and 6x9 Type R's in my parcel shelf in the boot. My head unit is an alpine CDE121-E, and the setup i have at the moment is my rears are wired up to the amp (according to the manual producing 290W at 4Ohms) and the fronts wired up to the headunit. Is this the best setup i can do with my current products or is there a better way? all i want really is a clear sound at higher volumes, not to worried about bass - i plan to put a small sub in just to help out the 6x9's to push out even more clarity. Also best methods to get the best sound out the amp via tuning. Any advice is much appreciated
  9. Hey guys! I've been having a bit of idle issues for a while now, before i had my major service my car would idle at around 1.5-2k RPM, ever since its been running smoother and alot lower at around 400-550RPM, which is too low - almost to the point where it cuts out, not to mention the slight feathering i have to do to get going which can't be great for my clutch. Anyways maybe my TPS is off its mark and was wondering 1) How do i check? 2) What value should it read? 3) How do i adjust it if its off? Thanks a million!

    Ae92 Wheel And Tyre Fitment.

    Hey man, i think i've seen your GTi haha, are you ever in Dalyellup on the weekends?
  11. I told him about it, he said he didn't hear anything in his test drive, which i don't understand if it was a thorough overlook - as its pretty easy to happen.
  12. Okay! interesting, i'll have a look on my lunch break! thanks :)
  13. Its hard to pin it down to a certain time, but its usually in all gears, when ever i try to pick up speed, so like in 1st 5-20 or something, in 4th 90-100, it seems more like driveshaft speed, but I'm not sure. i'll do a few more drives where i properly note down, and i'll come back tomorrow!
  14. Hey guys, so I checked my car in (AE92 GTi) for a mech. inspection today, i've had it for about two years now, always ran a little rough, but i kept it nice and serviced well over the years. So the mechanic comes back with this; can I please get some feed back on this? whats important, my guess is the leaks, he didnt figure out why my front end knocks, its a weird thing to describe, it happens when i put down power - not necessarily flat footing - but moderate acceleration, its a very rapid knock, almost like a driveshaft knock of some sorts, its not CV's because i do the full lock turn and no ticks, so if anyone has had a similar issue it would be much appreciated! here are some pics of the report and my car :)
  15. Hey guys, I have an AE92 gti corolla I'm working on, I was wondering if anyone had, or knew of any places that had the matching white with red pinstripe bumpers. Its obviously been in a fender bender before with the previous owner, and has the barina black bumper with purple pinstripe - looks tacky. I'm in the South West in Bunbury, not sure if any ones from around here :) will put pics up soon!
