    Today the Helmet sat outside all day in the heat. When I unlocked the car before I even got in it the speakers started to pop several times then it did it two or three times really loud. Now I can’t get any sound out of it. Everything seems to Wouk even my phone connects with blue tooth. It’s a HK unit.

    I am thinking the amp went out. Enyone els have this happen to them on a Gen 2 car?

    I think when the amp starts to go the music gets wonky,...:crazy:

    Ok the car has sat in the garage since Thursday. As soon as I opened the passenger door it started popping agin! I did find the amp. On the R58 it is under the driver side seat.
