2021 Evora GT
I had the same issue. My sub-w amp had a blown internal fuse. Once replaced (under warranty) everything was fine and the sub sounds great.
NO NO NOThanks for the link! I did try panning just to the rear and it is dead. I'm in the audio business and just needed to know where the amp for the sub is. The link was helpful and now I know the sub amp is behind the subwoofer and how to disassemble the read seat and side panel to get to it. As soon as I fix this, everything will be perfect! :nanner:
Very true!NO NO NO
Everything is never "Perfect"
once you get everything where you want it you will say to yourself "now how can I make it better?"
maybe a new exhaust?
Have to have that CAI
Maybe I should add the black package to get the sport racer look?
should I do a tune?
should I take her out and race her?
and the list grows from there, but it is a great journey
Evora fever! catch it!
Sounds like a nice car. I am interested to see what you think of the sound quality once it is fixed. One question, Is your car a stick or IPS? Going from the Vette with the six speed stick, and now the Evora. I was wondering what you thought of the gear box? I have driven a few Vettes and liked there gear box.Removed the rear seat and all the associated panels to get to the subwoofer and amp (don't want to do that again :crazyeyes). First I checked the driver itself to see if it was good and it was. Then went to the amp and found the amp fuse blown and thought this is going to be an easy fix, not so fortunate. Replaced the fuse (20 amp) and turned the system on, still didn't work. The amp is getting power but has no output, bummer! Put it all back together and will have to have the dealer fix it along with a dead side fender light when I go in for the first oil change. Get those fixed and everything will finally work as a new car should. :huh: Thanks for the link that showed how to disassemble the panels, I had to go to Harbor Freight Tools to pick up those special tools ($6.99) to remove the plastic snap rivets, I wouldn't recommend anybody trying to remove those panels without the right tools!
The radio has enough bass without the sub but I'll assume it sounds better when it's working.
I agree with all of your points. All of my cars are sticks and always have been. In fact I am waiting for the F-Type coupe with a stick, it should be out in about a year. On the GM plants, you are correct. That is why I have a new Ford Fiesta ST as my DD. I also had Ford stock for many years. They did not take any bailout $.I have a 6 speed manual trans, is there any other kind of trans to have in a sports car?? I like the close ratio of the Evora gear ratios but the shifter leaves much to be desired. You just can't speed shift the Lotus with it's cable linkage like you can the Z06. If I could recommend one improvement on the Evora, it would be to design solid linkage from the shifter to the transmission. The new Corvettes have made the gear ratios closer and from all I've read, the new 2015 Z06 will have an even better close ration 7 speed manual trans and for the first time, an 8 speed automatic. Pretty impressive considering it will be pushing 630 to 650HP! :crazyeyes
The reason I decided not to wait and buy a new Z06 is because GM has betrayed the American public who bailed them out of bankruptcy. They are closing down manufacturing plants world wide and have opened eleven (11) new plants in China, the CEO actually bragged about building 70% of all their cars in China now. This is how GM pays back the US citizens for saving them from going under, they can keep their new Corvettes even if they are still made here in the US.
I'm hoping Lotus will grow and accomplish their goals of producing the five new models they presented at the European Car Show, and perhaps they can improve their production facilities and bring down the costs of their cars, that will draw a lot more American buyers.
I used to work with Mullaly here at Boeing and he would also come to our family's frame shop. Pretty animated guy. He's the man!I agree with all of your points.
