I don't know how long it takes to "reset" but it's typically only on the first start of the day or with hours in between which makes no sense.

Thoughts?
If properly grounded, then I would say its the Amp itself. Internal bad design. The thump is the inrush of current from the amps PSU filling up the capacitors inside. Once they are charged the circuit balances out and the amp should be quiet with no signal going to it. Not every cap gets charged equally and at the same time (talking milliseconds here) so that's where the thump comes from. The fact that you don't get a thump when you restart the car shortly after the first start up tells me its the residual charge in the caps not completely discharged by the internal bleed resistors.

The only thing I could think of is to power on all the components in their respective order first, then have a speaker enable relay that connects the amp to the speakers. If the amp is on before the speakers are connected, then in theory with everything properly booted up when the speakers connect there should be no thump.

Pin removal tool

Hi,

I beg forgiveness for the necro-post but I'm embarking on my 2k16 sub install, I've acquired all the plugs (might see if I can find a source of pins so I can have a space).

Do you have a link to the tool you were using to remove the pins?

It doesn't much look like a standard molex extractor will get these pins out

In my case, I made my own with a sliver of metal from air duct panel.

For some reason I can’t post a for sale ad in the classified section. If anyone is interested in an audio control lcq-1 and the plug and play harness that was mentioned in this thread let me know. I also have the 555 timer relay. Just removed everything from my fit and traded it back to the dealer.

Talking

I'd buy your gear but we're a long way apart, it'd cost me as much shipping it as buying it and over here we call it a jazz

Finally got around to building the harness.



Now to order a lc2i from Melbourne because if I read correctly, no amount of sub will help with the stock headunit without the lc2i

edit.

Holy crap no, won't be ordering from anywhere in Australia, they took the "Australian Markup" and went wild - I'd expect to pay $100 here for something like this, not $199+

Amazon seems to be the way to go

I wish I could be of help, the harness is completely different from what others have told me on the 2018 vs 2015-2017. If I come across a service manual with a pinout I will post it

Hi, i need further clarification about retaining steering wheel control. Notice that A11,A22 & A23 for the pin connection. But which one for INPUT1 , INPUT 2 & GND.
Kindly refer photo below.

2015 and 2017. The 2018 and newer is a completely different head unit with different pin out.

​​​​​​Not sure. Its a low voltage voltage circuit. You are on the right track. A11 is the GND, only two wires left to try. Trial and error. Once you figure it out please do share with the forum!
