Oops! Sorry GH!
 
GH,
I saw and responded to your post about creating a Resource Forum. That was a great idea! :)47 So, I created a new Category, as well as, Mobile, Marine, and Motorcycle Resource Forums....but, when I went to "Move" your original post, I accidentally deleted them. :redface-oops-6: Sorry!

Anyway...here is the Forum you suggested.

Thanks,
KF

That was an excellent idea, GH.
Here's one: www.the12volt.com Just one of the many sources I use to find wiring colors.

http://www.clubknowledge.com/Car_Audio_FAQ/forum - There are some very experienced installers and techs at this site. They don't sell any products, so there's no incentive for them to recommend one brand over another, other than quality/value/personal experience. It's a well moderated site that doesn't allow flaming.

http://www.bcae1.com -This site is an excellent resource for 12 volt car audio. It's more like an online electronics/car audio course, but you can go to just the section you need information about, and it's written so that each section can stand on it's own.

Is there any way to have one main post, for the sites/resources to be listed? That way we won't end up with a bazillion posts each with 1 site listed, making it hard to find a particular site. Just a thought. Comments?

I went ahead and consolidated your source into the 1st post on the Resource thread. Hope you don't mind.

Absolutely wonderful. I appreciate you listing it.:)47

Re: Oops! Sorry GH!
 
Well, to be honest with you guys, I think having posts by "Subject Matter" would be more efficient than one long post. For example "Installation Resources" or "Wiring Diagram" resources or "Box Design" resources etc. This would allow for easy searching of Thread Titles to find the type of information you are seeking. Remember "Search" is your friend!

But, hey, it is your forum Category, so organize it as you like. :)47

Re: Oops! Sorry GH!
 
I'm trying to think of how to classify some of the sites and organize them into an easily usable and understandable database. The bcae1 site covers just about everything, from basic Ohm's law to advanced impedance calculations. The club knowlege site is like that also, except the information is provided by the site members. A lot of the links will probably be like that.

Would using the URL, with a very brief description (1 or 2 words) as the thread title and a more detailed description of the site in the 1st post, be appropriate?

Or would using the subject matter as the thread title, with individual posts within the thread, providing links and descriptions of relevant sites, be more appropriate? With this format, many of the sites will be listed in multiple threads, ie: thread for Wiring diagrams would include the bcae1 link, and the thread for box design would also include the bcae1 link, since both subject are covered on the bcae1 site.

Comments? Ideas?

GH, it sounds like it would save thread space. But, of course, I'm challenged as far as this stuff goes. But I have a couple more.
www.linearteam.dk/default.aspx Basic enclosure design program. It's a free download. I've used it and had decent results.
www.trueaudio.com Free download RTA, SPL meter, and O-scope. :)47

Using the SEARCH functionality, I think a user is more likely to find what they are looking for if the Thread title simple had a brief description of the respective link, but the URL should be inside the post...not a part of the title. For example using RM's recent post:

Thread Title: Basic enclosure design
Content: www.linearteam.dk/default.aspx It's a free download. I've used it and had decent results.

Thread Title: RTAs, SPL meters, and O-scopes
Content: www.trueaudio.com Free download

If you guys like that concept...then set them up accordingly, and I will delete the other post/thread references once you tell me you're happy with the system.
