    Has your question been asked before? *updated Nov05*

    Just to save you some time waiting for answers to your questions and because this is one of the fastest moving Commodore Audio forums around...I thought I would pile together a list of threads that have covered a lot of ground since conception. Some answered by me and some answered by others also you will find some interesting threads and ones that are just plain weird.....so, without further waiting. Here is the list.

    Car Audio 101: The Fundamentals

    Car Audio 101: Speakers that woof and Kennels to put them in

    Keeping the stock head unit

    VK-VZ Stereo wiring list.

    Amplifier bridging explained

    Capacitors (stiffening)

    http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/car-audio/15149-kings-guide-elimanating-stereo-noise.html

    Sub in VR-VS ute


    Getting to the original speakers in a VR-VS


    Steering wheel controls with a new CD Player

    Removing the 4" dash speakers from a VN-VP

    http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...x-steering-wheel-controls-stereo-upgrade.html

    This should keep you entertained for awhile....I will continue to search the forums as time permits and I will add to the list.

    Tata for now!

    updates to this thread

    i think a massive help would be a link to the "noise in my sound system" threads that are going around, alot of people are asking this

    also, perhaps a link for "how to mount speakers in my model" to the various model pages, alot of people are asking that too

    imo anyway

    hey, i was told that if the ABS module on a VT S1 goes, it has to be left unplugged for the eng temp gauge to work? is this true? and is it a serious or common problem? the car only has 126000 on it yet seems to be alittle rough. interior plastics coming off, bonnet struts are not working,drivers door strut has nearly been pulled out of the pillar. has it been treated badly or are these common things? thanks

    Pontiac G8 (VE SV6)
    Swapping the head unit in a VE

    Have any of you guys heard of someone swapping the base single disc player in the VE (Pontiac G8) with the 6 disc changer model? I am thinking of having this done by a dealer and just wondered if it has been down with a VE?

    Thanks
