In Topic: stereo

The whole point of subs, mid range and tweets is to get each speaker handling what it's best at.

In fact if you ask a single speaker to handle the bass it will do more to ruin the sound than having a separate sub.

+1 to everybody who replied saying it's the way it's set up that ruins the sound and not the concept of having dedicated speakers.

I'm fairly into home cinema and have proper B&W 600 series speakers all round not the poxy little book shelf ones. These are more then capable of shaking your fillings out but when you ask them to do that you lose the fidelity of the sound track.

That's why I have an eff off big sub as well LOL - not to blow the roof of (although it can) just to take the load off the mid range

Oh and I'm 40 something LOL

!Removed! HELL...

If you left the boot open and hit the bass will you get to 60 faster?

Last time I saw something like that sticking out the back of something it was taking off from a military airfield!

A full tank on my Mondeo 1.8 costs about 50 and driving at the speed limit but not holding folk up I get 425 ish miles.

The best I ever got was 470 (lots of M6 driving snore) before I bottled it and filled up LOL

I average 40 mpg on motorway trips and the low 30's round town.

60 miles to 20 is scary and if I were you I'd sell that Dodge Viper you are driving..!

I used to work with a bloke who had a mad rich uncle and his uncle had a late 90's Aston Vantage - which he sent back to the factory for the performance option to push 600bhp

The mechanic that built his engine told him it took a litre of petrol just to start it :blink: LOL

In Topic: I need a free wiring diagram and a service manual

02 January 2009 - 10:33 AM

I've got some paper copies (so I can't upload them) of Mondeo wiring schematics for models up to 2003 1/2

Like somebody else has also offered, if you say what you are looking for I might be able to help you out with the information.

In Topic: Which pin is constant power?

Happy new year to you both as well and to everybody on the board.

For a few seconds I did wonder if it might be a fuse, but everything else electrical seemed to be working so I thought there is no way there would be a dedicated fuse just for this and didn't think any more about that (stupid of me I know).

Only when I looked at the wiring schematic did I see how many bleeping fuses there were :o

So F72 feeds just this one pin on one connector and an optional navigation unit (which my LX doesn't have)

It's been a while since I did any electrical work on a car (Rover SD1 V8) and things have moved on a tad haven't they.
