Why is the OHC temp sensor in the rear? Also how are you running both PA speakers, just with a headphone splitter?

because i figure it will pick-up heat from the engine and it will be more accurate on the rear...

they are hooked up to a amp and will have a switch to shut off the radio part....dont have it all hooked up yet right now its just hooked up to the radio

If you hook the OHC into the VSS sensor at the box by the radio like John Grigg's how-to says, the OHC temp sensor in the front will accomadiate for engine temperature and for when the vehicle is moving. When mine was in the front of my Ranger, it was really accurate.
