  2. Awesome to see another Prelude on here.
    Fabulous base to start with. The engine bay cleanliness is to die for.
    Looks pretty much brand new :Smile:
    Watch out on the auto gearboxes in these. They are not known to be very reliable and fail quickly.

    Did you get to hear the acoustic feedback system?
    I think it was a system with microphones in the rear speakers and was supposed to adjust the sound accordingly.
    Apparently it was good technology at the time but people say its pretty poor by today's standards.

    Good luck with the plans. These projects always take time but the results will be worth it :Smile:

      I did hear the original head unit and I think the potential was there ... it's just so hard to support one of the rear speakers if one fails. The 6x9's with the built in microphone are not that easy to come by. When I installed my new head unit I went ahead and bypassed the AFBS and gained back about 300-400% of the lost volume. It's not a difficult mod to make and it opened the door for any aftermarket speaker one wants to install.

      I'm a little OCD about those kinds of things. Every time I do a detailing of the car, I include the engine compartment. And thanks!!

      I hope I don't disappoint. Like most, the wife will be my sanity and parts spending regulator. Change will come in a conservative manor.
