Re: 2012 Sport audio upgrade?
Well I just ordered the some infinity tweeters and speakers and will most likely put those in myself vis the awesome guides on here. I'm more worried about installing the bazooka sub if I end up going with one since I would assume wiring has to go pretty far or does it tie in to rear speakers? ( haven't gotten my ridgeline yet so not sure about speaker placement. Holding out for end of year deals or quota on local dealer). Also I will probably eventually get a ddin display, not caring about nav or cd changers. Single disc works fine since I always just hook up my iPhone, but would like a touch screen maybe if price isn't terrible. Side note, these forums are amazing ha, every time I log on something new.
Tweeters and speakers? Did you order a component set (separate tweeter and mid-bass driver for the door) or did you order a separate set of tweeters and a coaxial set? Infinity speakers are designed at 2 ohms. It allows for less resistance and, what Infinity says, better performance from a stock system. The RL's door speaker/tweeter is wired in parallel, meaning that the positive and negative terminals of each speaker are wired together. This effectively halves the seen load, so using a separate 2 ohm tweeter and 2 ohm coaxial speaker will create a 1 ohm load - you will overload the stock wiring and may cause damage to the stock (or any aftermarket, for that matter) head unit. The component set is designed to work together and show an overall 2 ohm load. Post up the model numbers and type of speakers you purchased. Hoping you got the component set!
