  1. Here is what I done. I decided that I was not ever going to put the crappy factory speakers back in. You have to remove the factory speaker from the ring that is screwed into the door and you will be re-using this ring. I have a grinder and just grinded down the ring until the new speaker was flush. Another benefit is that the new speakers wiring terminals aligned perfectly with the factory terminals. I soldered them together and now I have a factory look and no one is the wiser. I used JL Audio speakers. Tweeters are mounted in factory tweeter location. They were easy to sandwich between the plastic pieces on the A pillar and are invisible. The factory hole for the tweeters was perfect for the JL tweeters. Pics attached
  2. I have a 2015 TC and have a Yaesu radio in it. Sounds like you just need to take your time and remove the headliner and run the cables for the antenna. Your choice of a 4 guage power supply wire will work great just dont put too large of a fuse on it. Also, putting a fuse on the ground wire is never necessary. Just make sure the positive wire is fused. I have searched for the service manual for my model. All I have found so far is a dvd on Ebay for around $300 that covers the TC.
  3. My company issued me a 1st gen TC and every time I drove it something died. It was a piece of crap. I finally got a 2nd gen TC and fell in love with it. I then bought my own. Wouldnt have a gen 1.
  4. It took me 30 minutes to do this mod. Went to Advance Auto Parts and got the fuse add on which plugs into any switched fuse and makes one fuse into 2. I plugged into F28 on my 2015 then put the 25 amp fuse that was in that spot into the new fuse splitter, then ran the whip wire to F17 which is my aux power port fuse location. I crimped on a female connector and plugged it into the right side terminal of the fuse holder. DONE !https://www.waytekwire.com/item/46177/Micro2-Circuit-Fuse-Tap-20A/?gclid=Cj0KEQjw2-bHBRDEh6qk5b6yqKIBEiQAFUz29q8CJmcRLLq3ue9wuhpQz7XtLpetwVhlWJB6_DGpHMMaAtY38P8HAQ These are available at most parts stores.
