I took my car to the dealer to upgrade the firmware to 122-080. We will see if it helps with the disconnect and reconnecting of Apple CarPlay. It also fixes an issue with the WiFi update method, so...

I got the speaker kit from OEM+. Here is my take on it. The highs seem crisper and the lows don't distort as bad. For just the speaker kit, it is a little high-priced. I am willing to pay it...

I saw my first IRL GR86 in the north Hall county area of Georgia. Well, besides my own BRZ and one on a dealer lot.

It looked to be a TRUENO BLUE GR86. The same color as my SAPHIRE BLUE BRZ.

soundman98,
I have a technical question about amps. Why do the HPF and LPF on the cheaper amp only go from 40Hz to 500Hz for both the high and low filtering?

I see the capacitor on the speaker, but that does not reduce the ohms rating correct?

I am digging into the dash speakers and see they have a 3.5" at 4 ohms speaker and a 1" tweeter at 4 ohms that are connected in parallel. This makes the dash speakers "look" like a 2-ohm speaker to...

Thanks! Maybe we can shed some light on this issue once I get all of my new equipment. I can do whatever test is needed as long as it's done with a multimeter or unplugging / plugging in a speaker.

I agree. I also wish it would pause more than mute. It doesn’t pause podcasts, and I loose my place.

I emailed "OEM Audio Plus" and they hope to start taking preorders by mid to late summer for their 2022+ sound solution. I guess actually getting one shipped will be more like in the fall.
