Windstop Speakers

Postby lowflyer » Thu Apr 07, 2005 3:25 pm

hi

Got myself one of these boards from a friend and want to install on a 2002/2.5, have been round the forums and am still a bit confused regarding cables and adaptor plugs.

Before I start messing about with it can anyone give me an idiotsguide to installation.

Have spoken to 2 technicians one from Arnolds and one from Taggarts, but they disagreed on whether any wires run to the back of the car, Arnolds man said that the wires are only in place on the 2004 model, and if buying the windstop from Mazda to fit on an older car a wiring loom is included.

any help would be appreciated

I have a 2002/2.5 and the wires were not there, it is easy to extend them from the radio to the windblock.

The main problem was getting small enough male connectors to connect into the harness at the back of the radio.

Have fitted and wired the windstop speakers, got the connectors from a scrapped Mk1 and doctored up the plug on the loom, a bit fiddly but worth the effort to keep it neat, obvious improvement in the sound quality but could be better.

Now I need to get some tweeters and crossovers for the doors.

Ok glad that that it worked ok, but what are crossovers??

As you found the windblocker speakers help, but still need to improve the sound

the man in MotorWorld told me I needed them

apparently it splits the signal coming from the headunit into high and low frequencies
