Re: 1000 WATT Stereo Install - New Tweeters, New Drivers + SUB!

Fri Jul 29, 2016 2:59 pm

I have already installed a sub and amp in my Leaf and now I'm moving onto the full range speakers. I'll be replacing the stock tweeters. Did you ever find a way to get replacement "green tabs" for the A pillar cover? Or some other way to re-secure it? I'd really hate to get hit in the face by the cover if the airbags go off.

I did not, they are on my to-do list but it keeps getting longer and longer. Someone else posted here I think a link to buy them for pretty cheap.

Been smelling something burning past couple nights when driving my car. Narrowed it down to the trunk and found it just now.

It might just be a loose wire. I may have to just clip 1” off and strip the insulator and Torque down the screw.

What you think?

That Amp the wire feeds is 600 watts.
