2nd Gen Infinity Crazy Volume knob, Infinity limitations?
I knew the volume knob was intermittent, but the stereo suddenly stopped working the other day.
What to do, what to do.. Tablet, ipad mini, double din, flip up screen. I wouldn't mind upgrading but I don't drive much presently. That will change in 8 years but today's radios will look prehistoric by then.
Can anyone tell me about the infinity system? Is it just the speakers, because the head unit doesn't say infinity, only the tweeters and original option list.
And I understand each speaker has it's own amp? So all six speakers have a 12 volt power wire and also preamp signal wires? How does a aftermarket head unit work with speakers that have their own amp and need pre amp signal?
So after I wrote this I got the idea to remove the positive cables from the batteries for a while, and sure enough, the radio works again. Crazy volume knob though, but we will see if contact cleaner helps.
If I upgrade to a aftermarket HU, should I also upgrade the speakers and run all new wire?
