  1. Stock subwoofer replaced, box modified, sound results!

    1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    My 2011 RTL's stock door speakers and dash tweeters have all been upgraded to Infinity Kappas, and I wanted to swap out the sub as well. But, the rear seats seemed daunting, and most posters were saying it wouldn't be worthwhile. I've installed many full systems with amplifiers since the 1980's...
  2. 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...

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Greetings all. Been a member for a bit but my first post. I know there are a ton of related posts but I can't find the specific answer (and I'm not sure if it's proper etiquette here to jump into an existing thread with my question or to create my own - so I chose the latter). Anyhow, I've got...
  4. Looking for easiest head unit to install 2006 RT

    1G Mobile Electronics
    I've read through the forums and I understand that unless I get a separate amp or a 6 channel HU, I am going to lose the factory sub-woofer. With that in mind, I have a two questions. 1) Will losing the factory sub dramatically decrease my sound quality? 2) What is the easiest replacement...

  6. Aftermarket HU disables subwoofer?

    1G Mobile Electronics
    I'm looking at installing a Kenwood DPX-500BT head unit in my '08 Ridge RTL, no nav. A note on the Crutchfield site says the subwoofer will not work with this unit, and with many other aftermarket HUs. Anyone know why, and most important, if there's a work around? (I'd rather not have to spring...

    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...
  9. 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...

  16. Anyone ever stuffed the OEM sub?

    1G Mobile Electronics
    So far, I've replaced the OEM door speakers w/ the commonly used Polk 6.5" coaxials, and Dynamatted all 4 doors. The sound was greatly improved, but I'm not as satisfied as I'd like to be. I just read the thread on replacing dash tweeters (didn't even know I had 'em until now!), and will...
