Not sure whether to put this here or in /tech/ but i'd think you'd know what to do.
I ask trying to get my speakers in my car to work on no radio only to serve as an AUX in and perhaps some way to hook up my guitar to.
Cash this be possible with just the radio plug but without a radio?

Just get a power converter and hook an amp to it.

so I did a google and there's sites that sell wiring harnesses for the oem stereo that offer an aux in. do you have any radio at all?

your guitar has inductors in it and they need power so you have to put an amp in there to get the wave up to line level. then you can amplify it for the speakers.

This makes me wanna learn more on how voltage is turned into sound.
I have no radio but don't want one. I would prefer to just get an amp.
I only wanna use my car speakers for an aux in and EVENTUALLY get my guitar to work with them but from what it looks likei havea lot to learn.

sound going in is like sound going out

microphones are like tiny speakers

blowin yer mind

you can run leads from the battery for power, rca in from whatever or from a guitar preamp like those battery powered ones you can get. try to find the wiring diagram for the connector that your car has... google is your friend dude

Can anyone help me with finding websites for finding cheap airline tickets? There must be a website out there that gives promos and special prices for flights. I know most people are going to direct me towards the search engine google, but i've tried that and still can't find a reasonable airline ticket price.

There are no golden tickets, sorry. Before 9/11 you could do air courier but that is ancient history. Just search Kayak, Airline Consolidator or something similar (they're all about the same). Look for mid week and red eye flights. Book in low season, far in advance or absolutely last minute. That is about it.

If you're in Canada consider a bus/train to the US because the taxes are cheaper, but factor in the time/hassle/bus fare and see if it is worth the effort. Often the case is not if you only save under a hundred dollars.

I guess the corollary to this is try to fly out of a hub, if that is reasonable. I am actually looking at a flight in may right now. From this podunk town the cheapest would be $710, while if I take the tedious 12h bus to exotic Newark, NJ I can take a milk run flight for $560. I've done this route several times before, but I was traveling light (one carry-on). I am considering the fact that I want to maybe bring more than three pairs of underwear for a 4 month trip that it may not be worth it to me, the tedium is high, I'd need to overnight somewhere or sleep in the airport (lame), and it is a hassle to cart luggage around. YMMV

Skyscanner is hands-down the best site for finding cheap flights. You can broaden your search terms to entire countries or months, then pick the cheapest day and cheapest city to fly out of/into. The hotspot cities are key though, when it comes to europe, London, Frankfurt, Krakow and Istanbul are all super cheap (but UK has crazy strict immigration, so don't use that unless you have a watertight story or real reason to go through there)

Hey /vroom/

Going to Thailand tomorrow. Spending a week around there and then another week or so in various places in Cambodia. Any recommendations/ stories/ cautions?

dont trust the tuktuk drivers to be honest with you. they will try to take you to a travel agency type thing and they overcharge there.

where are you going anyway, I was there last year

Word I'm in the same boat. Going to Thailand for a while. Not sure how long I'm going but I intend on A) training muay thai for a couple weeks, B) renting a beach house and getting drunk c) watching thai fights in bangkok

The rest is up in the air. i'm a canadian journalist and I'll want to write about my experiences. I want to hit up vietnam as well.

Posted something about this in /law/ so refer to my thread there for further detail but mainly before I get an estimate on some exterior damage done to my car, I wanted to see if anyone here might know how much I'm looking at or have a rough idea. Pic is car, passengers side. Steering is still fully functional, it's just exterior denting and scratches thankfully.

TL;DR some dickwad sideswiped my car and drove off

requires reforming, repainting, there's a lot of hours of labor there dude. unless the panels can be replaced and repainted more easily. I'd still say over a couple grand, sry dude

Ah well shit, my insurance covers hit and runs under our collision repair, but only if the damage is more than the deductible, which is like $500 something give or take. So now I'm out $500 now because some fucking stupid ass piece of shit wanted to play bumper cars after it rained.

I was looking for a relevant thread to post this in but couldn't find one. Anyways, I was thinking about buying a bike b6t I've never owned one. What kind of bikes would y'all recommend for a beginner? I M leaning towards Street bikess.

Is 500cc too m6ch for a starter bike?

Forsure, my brutha.
I'm not a brand fanboy or anything.
I'm 6'2" so I'll go with whatever fits me best.
I'm just a little keen on the RC 390 because of the sexy styling and forward lean, but the Ninjette does definitely have the best top speed. Ideal for open throttle on highways. I'll definitely want to tinker on whatever my first bike may be, regardless. The single cylinder KTM has that slight edge for street cred, torque delivery, and simple engine but like I said, it's up in the air until further notice.
I'll definitely keep ya'll posted on my progress.

At the end of the day though, no brand looks anywhere near as sexy in green as a Kwaki.

I'm 5'10" myself, an ER-6 (I think that's what's called a Ninja in USA, in Europe that's the supersports) and it's pretty neato. Short wheelbase for when you need to overtake in inner city and they come in a faired version too, which helps for motorways. Simple to work on looks bretty good. Inline twim though, not gonna win any races but a 4k-10k power band is easy to master.

My inline four toyota would have to have more than 3L of displacement to have bigger cylinders than that bike. That bike also has more power than my inline four toyota.

just for some perspective

The new dodge cummins I think wins though, with more than 1L per cylinder--fyi
