  1. Upgrading My Island Ride to Return Stateside

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Have begun this month what may be a lengthy sabbatical and have decided to make some improvements to the truck prior to shipping it back CONUS (to take the truck and wander for several months). While most of these improvements involve adding/upgrading electronics, it turns out the truck...
  2. $80.00 2019 Ridgeline Sport speaker upgrade. Result is vastly better sound

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    I am of the opinion that Honda puts tweeters in the Ridgeline Sport trim only so that customers who seek quality sound will have a molded in location to put the aftermarket upgraded component speaker tweeters. It is certainly not to have any functional sound emit from those factory tweeters. But...
  3. Rear Component Speakers RTL-E

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    For anyone interested, I have just completed the install of component speakers (separate tweeter and woofer) in the rear doors. Yes, I successfully drilled the door panel and everything fit. Nervous?... You bet! Pictures will follow.

  5. Hertz EBX F20.5 Subwoofer replaces OEM

    1G Mobile Electronics
    I just installed the Hertz EBX F20.5 Subwoofer as a replacement to the OEM one behind the seat. I already had the other speakers upgraded and an amp installed so this was the easy part. The main reason for writing this is that this Hertz unit fit in the same space as the OEM subwoofer of my...
  6. Static/interference with climate control

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    This is my first non-introduction post, so go easy on me. :grin: My 2017 RTL-E makes static/interference when the climate control fan is set at 1 or 2 bars. It plays over the speakers, bzzzrrrttt..... I can turn the sound on and off by either increasing the fan speed to 3, or turning the...
  7. Help upgrading speakers please

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Hi, I recently installed a Pioneer 4100NEX headunit in my 06 Ridgeline (RTL, no nav, no sub). Was watching a video on how to replace the speakers in the doors and it didn't look too bad, so thought I'd take a crack at that as well. (I like to tinker and learn new things as I go) The video...

  9. Hit bump and speakers stopped working

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Yesterday, I was pulling into a parking lot when I hit a huge pothole and all four speakers stopped working. My head unit seems fine. Later that day, I hit another bump and the speakers started working again but only until I hit the next bump. I took the HU out to check if the wiring harness...

  11. Crossover location?

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Just got a 2014 Ridgeline SE and I would like to install a set of JL C2 650's in the front. How is the crossover handled by the factor head unit? Should/Can I use the JL crossover or do I need only replace the speakers and call it a day? Thanks
  12. How can I upgrade my truck's audio?

    1G Mobile Electronics
    I have a 2007 Ridgeline in black and I really like the truck. I recently added the iPod control unit and aux input, but I seem to find the bass lacking. Is there any way to replace the stock subwoofer, or would I need to just put another sub in the truck? If I had to put in something like a...
  13. 2013 Ridgeline RTL Stereo Install

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Time to pay it forward ... thanks to all those whose posts helped me get the job done right. A brand new 2013 Ridgeline RTL should have a better sound system than a 160 watt 6-disc CD change ... and since I had done a stereo install in my previous vehicle (2005 Honda Pilot) I was confident I...

    1G Mobile Electronics
    OK, so my plan is to do a complete re-haul of the soundsystem in my RL. I'm planning on putting a 7" lilli touchscreen and a computer underneath one of the seats. I'm planning on running that to a kicker 5 channel amp behind the back seat, 2 10" kicker subs under the seats, and 4 new door...
  18. Replacing sound system in full. What do you think?

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Can I get some feedback on my audio upgrade. I plan on putting 6.5 inch speakers all through out the truck and a pioneer shallow truck sub in place of the factory subwoofer. Powering everything with a 5 channel kicker amp. I am using coaxile speakers. Dont want to mess with component. Heres what...
  19. Few speaker brands to choose from….

    1G Mobile Electronics
    For the first time, I’m going with a professional installer in my vehicle instead of doing it myself. I live in Central KY and there’s only a couple of mobile audio installers within a 65 mile radius. One installer carries JL Audio and Boston Acoustics. The other Focal, Memphis Audio and...
