GRUNDIG - start without speakers?
« on: May 23, 2012, 09:56:52 AM »
Have now got a complete set up to install the 10 stack and head in my Diamond. I want to test before I put it in but not sure if I can do this with no speakers attached. I did this once years ago and it blew the radio/CD.

You can connect the wiring up without physically fiting the units in place to test it.

That way you'll have the speakers connected and if it works then carry on with the full fitting.

I was hoping to test in the garage without speakers but will have to do a test in the car. Thought it might be ok to test without the speakers but best not to just in case.

Put car in garage then you CAN test it in thye garage as planned.

Simples. ;)

I'll get me coat......



.....Just in case it rains.


On a more serious note, best of luck with it, take your time and make sure that none of the wires short out.
Easy to do when testing and EXPENSIVE!

Guess how I know? :-[

And Murph (and/or Chris) is best placed to know how to fit it Kieth  :o. If there are ANY other jobs you plan to do in the dashboard area then weave them in with this.
