    Replaced all of mine and tweeters with some middle of the road kickers. I think all said and done I was just under $100. Probably the least expensive mod i've done and with the miles I put on it's got to have the highest ROI. Also didn't take long at all to get them all in. Just made sure to have the door panel clips on hand knowing quite a few would break.

    Mark levinson decided to use 8ohm speakers and it’s hard to find 6x9 that are 8ohm. Trying to repair these for $15 before I spend money on different speakers.

    Worth a shot for sure.

    I just looked at my order and I was off. It was closer to $175. Adapters were included as I went to 6 3/4" round speakers. If I hadn't done the tweeters it would have been about $100-$120.

    Couldn't you go with 6.5 round with adapters?
    I'd be afraid that would be a waste of time and money and they'd still sound like crap.

    I was up in the air about going with 6.5’s. seems it’s 50/50 with fixing the speakers. Some say the sound system sounds really good afterwards and some say it’s worth it to just get different speakers. For $15 and something to mess around with (I have never fixed a speaker before) I thought it would be worth the trouble. Besides all of my money is going into #overland #EAF parts so can’t be wasting it on new speakers.

    Constantly tinkering and learning new things along the way is what its all about. It's surprising how applicable the knowledge and/or skills can be sometimes. I DIY on nearly everything unless the cost of the tools i'll use once outweighs having a professional do it, or if I know it's really out of my scope.

    I re-foamed the speakers in my 100 series and it turned out great.

    From what I was reading it seems MPPT is a lot more adaptive based on the status of the battery. I read a long complicated article and can't convey it that well though. MPPT may be better but is more expensive

    Other than @YamaDirtrider I don't know if anyone else is really versed in solar stuff here?

    Hey so I guess I’m officially a Coloradan? Or is it “Coloradian”? Or maybe “Coloradonese”? Not sure. Lol

    I started this trip in Indianapolis. Packed up truck bed to max and shoehorned a bunch of stuff (to include a 56” TV) in the bed and back seat full of stuff. Bought a Tyger trifold tonneau off of Amazon and it the reviews are very accurate! It’s held up great since purchasing it a month ago. Also some cheapo seat covers from Advanced Auto parts to stave off dog scratches.

    8B3C3E8B-D5B4-40EC-9553-06C8061347E0.jpg

    Then hit the road bound for San Antonio with my trusty sidekicks Wego and Dax. Loved the drive despite the fact I had to go through Arkansas. Seriously. Worst roads and drivers in the Union.

    Then in SA, I got me a Uhaul and went to load up my stuff from storage. Upon arrival, I find evidence of the worst shittiest Lyft driver. Lol

    Then back on the road to CO via Lubbock and Amarillo. Funny thing about west Texas is that everyone seems to think their vehicles can do some serious off-roading as evidence by the steel grate faux-Prinsu rack (complete with area lights and front lightbar), Nitto Grappler tires, and one inch lift equipped RAV4.:der:

    Decided to shack up in Amarillo and get some trailer backing experience in before somebody else wanted to “be like Mike”. Lol Also...side note: I'm not sure who the hell is designing hotels nowadays, but I don't think they thought the bathroom designs through entirely.o_O

    Next morning, up and on to CO. Snapping some picks and refueling on the best road trip snack ever!

    So stoked to be here.

    When i researched it, the price difference/charging benefits for a small system meant pwm was the better cost/benefit. Mppt is "better" but you won't notice much difference when running one or two panels to justify the increased cost...imo

    I'm far from an electrical or solar expert, but thats what i gathered with my system. My single 100w renogy panel and pwm controller allowed me to run my fridge 24/7 for over a year.
