I started this thread, and I put in no requirement for first hand photos. Some of our members are not shutter bugs like you and I.

Just to confirm, member may post any photos of said item that they just bought. And comments on items bought are welcome from other members as long as they stay on that specific product. But please, start your own thread if you want to debate, claim you know more than the buyer, put down the buyer or want to post other off-topic subjects. Personally, I've gotten the best ideas from seeing where other members actually spent their money.

This came in the mail Saturday.
The ad has you to believe that the interior is 1.50 cubic feet but is aquatically only .98cu.ft.

But with a little minor fixing I can get about 1.0-1.25cu.ft for the speaker intended for it to feel like it is in.


Atrend 12SME B Box Series 12-Inch Single Sealed Shallow Mount Enclosure


It is also not as sealed as I would like. But easy to fix as well.

I got my wideband in today.




This kit seems pretty nifty for this kind of stuff and seems complete. Installation will about the same as in a PT. It should be fun to play with this and my little Diablosport tuners.

Todd you are really going to like the features of this AEM!
I have used them in the past and even as you know have one scheduled for my PT Cruiser.

I was off work for a dental appointment today. And when I got home (with nice white shiny teeth), my other gauges had arrived.

Like the AEM wideband, these Jegs gauges come with both black and dull silver bezels. And they look very nice. However, the bezels do not seem to secure tightly to the gauges and there are no instructions on how to make sure they stay in place. I figure it's a job for a little 3M 2-sided tape. Either way, these should look great in my pillar pod.



PS: You can get many of these Jegs gauges with either white faces like mine or with silver faces. So matching a set with the instrument cluster in either a NA PT Cruiser (white) or a GT cluster (silver) should be fairly easy. The AEM wideband comes with a white and black face in the box. But there are some silver overlays from third parties.

I know a pic is not quite being there. But if you both could post up a pic of the gadge end without bezel and the back side of the bezel real close up. You might be able to see if the changed them. Other wise might look the same but looser fit. Just a thought.

Great idea, Danny...

First, these bezels are metal and not plastic as I first suspected. And they fit the gauges very well.




But as you can see, there's nothing on the inside surface of the bezel to help keep the bezel on the gauge. Of course, if I "egged" the bezel (made it oval) a little, it would likely stay in place. But I don't want to do that.



And there's no bump or tab on the gauge either to help hold on the bezel. However, I figure that if I put a single wrap of narrow tape or piece of pin stripe around the gauge head, the bezel will press on tightly. That may be the best answer. But if I'm missing something here, please let me know.



PS: The Galaxy S5 Active takes some pretty superb photos for a cell phone.
