    Cooler air in late 2020 model 3?

    Glad you said this. I've noticed the same. I have assumed that it is because the AC is also kicking in for defrosting or something. If I turn off the AC, it seems to help...but windows fog immediately. Definitely more humid here in the PNW than in summer, and it might be that the AC is...

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    The goals expressed aren't uncommon, I don't think. There are basically two factors that influence when we want things to charge, but only one of them is allowed to be priority at any one time: Charging to allow for some amount of driving - the bulk of this is what should happen during low-rate...

    Condensation in B-pillar cameras

    Don't see how there can be a firmware fix for a physical issue, unless they're doing corrective optics like they did with Hubble. Seems to me that the way to fix it is a combination of improving the airflow through that area or sealing it up like double-glazed windows, and/or maybe putting...

    See post #301 in this thread for my take. Not a breathtaking difference, but better.

    Scheduled charging issues

    See this thread? Related, maybe, to when you have your off-peak time ending set?

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    Yeah, it feels like Tesla hasn't really thought this out. It should be pretty easy to Tell the app when off-hours start and when they end by day of week Request off-peak charging up to the limit set on the main charge screen Ask for the app to reserve a "top off" time (30 minutes?) to be...

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    Interesting. Then why do they bother with the off-peak hours at all?

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    I'd like to take advantage of off-peak hours for charging, obviously. But... In the settings, there is only one time that you can set; for when the off-peak hours end. But there is no setting for when they start? How does it know when to start charging? If you aren't going to leave until 2...

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    If I were in the market, I'd want some specs on the speakers, too. To me, they look a little "gimicky" with the carbon fiber dome. So if they are really made in-house, I wonder about things like efficiency, response, etc. With a well-known speaker manufacturer like Faital, I felt more comfortable.

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    If the installation is similar to the one of the Faital speakers I listed 5 posts above, removing the whole dash is not needed. All that was required was removing some trim pieces. The issue might be the clearance between the windshield and the dash. The Faitals cleared pretty easily, but they...

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    As far as what can be improved over a stock premium system, this might be germane as I posted in another thread: “Quick report on my install of the Amped Garage brackets, Focal woofers/tweeters, and Faital midranges. I replaced all 3 dash speakers with the Faitals, as well as the rear doors...

    No Boombox for UK

    Honestly, I don't think anyone is missing anything without this feature. Unless you're sentimental and you like your car to sound like an old AM radio powered by a 9V battery.

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    Quick report on my install of the Amped Garage brackets, Focal woofers/tweeters, and Faital midranges. I replaced all 3 dash speakers with the Faitals, as well as the rear doors. The center tweeter was replaced with a Dayton ND25FN-4. The Focal tweeters went into the front door brackets. The...

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    Thank you, @RFICDude . I went ahead with it and this chart mirrors what I saw in my 2020 AWD. The speakers, including tweeters, are marked for polarity, and I tested the units that I could and they tested true. Positive voltage pushes the piston out.

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    Yes, I was hoping to avoid that, but that's what I'll do. Can't do that with tweeters, though. But hopefully I'll figure out which lead has a stripe, or something, once I get in there.

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    Has anyone here installed aftermarket speakers and made note of whether the wire insulation denotes a positive? I don't have connectors, and was hoping to just solder into the existing wiring. But I'd like to make sure things are in correct polarity. Also, if anyone has installed using the...

    Spider living in vents

    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. You're in Pennsylvania, not Australia. It's not a black widow, or a brown recluse. It's some sort of harmless wolf spider, I'd bet. And it won't be "nesting" in there; that's a hunter of some kind (i.e. not web-spinning), and it looks like it's...

    Spider living in vents

    That's not a bug, it's a feature. But if you really want to get rid of it, let a few dozen centipedes loose in the vents. One of them is bound to find that spider and eat it.

    We need "Off-Road Assist" for snow driving

    That’s good news, Alex. To me, one of the benefits of having two independent motors (or better still, one at each corner) ought to be having the ability to have software work with the ABS sensors to control wheel slip appropriately for off-road or slippery roads. It would be disappointing if...

    We need "Off-Road Assist" for snow driving

    Haven't had mine in snow yet, but this is disappointing if true. I also thought I was buying an AWD vehicle. If it doesn't really respond well in low traction, I'll be bummed.

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    So all the speakers get full-range signal from the amp, and just have passive components for high-cut and low-cut? Does the same pair of leads drive both that tweeter and the midrange nearby?
  28. G

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    Not understanding something here in terms of the way Tesla designed this system. Presumably they are sending a signal with low cut and high cut to that midrange speaker, then sending the remaining highs to the tweeter. You now have a single coaxial speaker with the tweeter integrated. Wouldn't...

    For anyone interested, I will soon have an extra Infinity 4032 speaker if someone wants to buy it for their third. They're sold in pairs, after all. PM me if interested. I'm near Portland, OR.

    Planning to replace 12V in M3 with Lithium Ohmmu battery.

    So I'm going to answer my own question here: I talked to Greenlife, and they basically said they weren't confident their BMS would work with a Tesla. Given how much an Ohmmu costs, it's tempting to try four of these plus something like this, and try to figure out the programming that satisfies...

    Over inflate for better milage on road trips?

    Not intending to quibble, but I don't believe higher pressure equates with more friction. Friction is going to be a combination of tread compound, road surface, and contact patch size. And I think you're right in a sense about the smaller contact patch clearing water better, but I doubt it...

    Planning to replace 12V in M3 with Lithium Ohmmu battery.

    I was under the impression that the Ohmmu battery is also LiFePo? LiFePo has a higher number of life cycles than Lithium ion polymer, and is pretty commonly-used for lead-acid replacements. When you say "not as energy dense," compared to what?

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    I'm curious about the differences between the Infinity 4" and the Faital Pros. The Faital's are not really full-range, only going up to 6,500Hz. But that's still pretty high, and doesn't have a crossover to fiddle with phase and such. The Infinitys list as being about the same efficiency. 1dB...

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    I appreciate that. But unless those speakers are considerably better-sounding and more efficient than stock, I don’t imagine it will be a huge improvement. As I said, I think the stock amplifiers run out of steam and start to compress signal before the system volume gets very loud.

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    So many questions. I have a 2020 with the premium sound system, so it already has functioning rear speakers and subwoofer. Honestly, the sound quality is pretty good overall, especially after putting some damping material on some of the panels. I have no idea whether these Hansshow offerings...

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    Given the difficult instructions/explanations and the daunting amount of friction to installing and setting this up, along with the price tags, the improvement in sound quality had better be pretty astounding. I do get that they are pioneering this, and are not native English speakers, but...wow.

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    I think they are chasing a bit of a moving target as they reinvent/refine their packages. So that's one problem. The other is translation. Again, we might help them out by saying what we need, rather than just saying "this is bad." But that's not easy, I realize. I don't know how to help...

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    Hansshow could use a bit of help with their UX, their copy, etc. It is really unclear what all the packages afford, and there are terms in the text that don't make sense in English. 'Course if people in the U.S. would bother to learn a foreign language like Standard Chinese...

    Looking for a replacement 12 volt battery

    I don't think it's necessarily "marine" that you'd be looking for if deep cycles are the risk. There are deep cycle batteries that aren't marine rated. Ohmmu is often cited here as a worthwhile replacement, but I imagine you've seen those threads. If not, search for that term.
