I hooked it up in my Accord for shitngiggles today to see if it was a faulty unit or just didn't like the rest of the system in my M. I used a separate power source and a relay to turn on the remote. No whine, no issues. Then again, my Accords system is VERY basic. I guess Audio Control and Alpine don't like each other.

I have a very well taken care of DQXS if anyone is interested...... I will be putting it up on Ebay when I get back from Atlanta next weekend.

I'm glad you figured it out. 40 hours tracing it sucks, but think of all the money you would have paid someone else to trace it and maybe you'll feel better

I can't IMAGINE what it would be like owning this car without the help from people like you Doug.

I tip my hat to you gentlemen....... I wish you could all attend the Timmayfest in May so I could buy you a beer.

Always happy to help Might as well share a bit of knowledge when you can, right? I'm officially putting you in charge of all stereo related threads from now on though!

I'd love to join for Timmayfest, but a consultants travel schedule and 3 daughters under 5 years old precludes me from doing things like that on weekends, unfortunately. You guys have a terrific time and have a couple for me

I guess I haven't updated this in a while.

Here is what my trunk currently looks like......



I added some blue LED's for effect.....



I will be re doing my front stage this winter (thank Peter!) and go with an active 3 way set up. I am also changing out my processor for a better one.

The new equipment:
-Alpine PXA-H701
-Hybrid Audio Technologies L1, L3, L8 speaker sets
-Adding an Alpine PDX-5 to power the additional speakers
Alpine PXA-H701


HAT L3's to be mounted in custom A pillar pods that will be covered with the OEM Alcantara Suede


HAT L8's for the doors in custom built baffles.

Thanks Rich, I think Doug still holds the "Master" ranking when it comes to M5 audio. I'm am working my way up the audio "jedi" ranks. LOL. Peter even taught me a few things during my trip to VA for his install. I am just amazed by the amount of knowledge and talent on this board. We can learn so much from each other! Peter really influenced my new front stage project with his car. IT SOUNDS AMAZING! Yes, I am a copy cat. *sticks tongue out*

Is there anything specific you want to see John? I didn't take very many pics of the actual install, but I can pull some panels apart if you want to see more.....
