I got a remote audio adapter as I wanted a remote mute switch like on previous Escorts, as I am not graceful and physically pressing the mute switch on the unit often ends with me screwing up a level mounting. I got it and I hooked it up. Above 1/2-2/3 volume, it cracks as if the speaker itself is blown, and the sound quality is terrible. Is this normal? I was hoping the speaker would be almost as loud and clear as the one on the unit. Is this a bad speaker or do they generally distort like this at higher volume levels?
Also, the manual says (in regards to the remote adapter):
What the heck does that mean? Does that mean if I accidentally plug it in the wrong way for 5 seconds that it will destroy my V1?!?! I get in and out of different cars on a daily basis and I do not leave my detectors in hot cars, which means I am constantly connecting and disconnecting set ups. If that is the case then I will not use it at all, but that doesn't seem quite right, especially with the fused system it uses. I am assuming this statement applies to long-term connections that are incorrectly hard wired, as is that correct? Thanks!Caution — Improper installation may damage equipment.
