Hi Guys and Gals,

Long time reader, first time poster here. Glad that I finally signed up. I've been on a forum or two for every other car I had, but my 2012 Elantra Limited is my first new car, and I've been hesitant to engage in any possible warranty-voiding activities. :cool:

I'm in-between jobs, and so finally have a week off work to do a stereo install I've been sitting on for a while.

I've been reading through these 2 outstanding threads, but still have some unanswered questions...

/231-md-2011-elantra/135866-elantra-limited-w-nav-subwoofer-amplifier-install-setup-step-step-guide.html

/231-md-2011-elantra/141441-complete-amp-speaker-wire-install-guide.html

If you guys know a good place I could post my general/specific questions I couldn't answer from reading these 2 posts, I'd appreciate it. I suppose at the end of these threads wouldn't be a bad place to start, but I didn't want to skip introducing myself to the forum. :D I'm really trying to get this install done before Friday.

I have decent stereo install experience, but have never worked with a Line Out Converter before. I have the Audio Control LC7i.

Glad again to be part of the forum!

I'm sure you'll post some pics of the final install...looking forward to them. :)

My only opinion is to ditch/sell the Capacitor. Its just another added strain to the alternator, and if your lights are dimming its basically just a bandaid to the problem. In which case you should look into a bigger battery, or alternator.
