Add a Subwoofer: install a subwoofer on CLS C218 E W212

Adding a subwoofer can add to new sensation of frequencies factory drivers don’t hit.  I went with 2 – ten inch jl audio 10w0v3.  While back in the 1990s the W0 I didn’t pay much attention to, running a JL 18w6.  I enjoy the new w0v3 series.  The new 10w6 […]

Morendi

Morendi

In my search for TCU tuning I found a tidbit from MBworld.org, a user there suggested Morendi for TCU tuning and to reach out to them by Instagram. Well I did.  The price is great at $750 for a TCU tune plus the cost of a tactrix 2.0 openport.   […]

Don’t check your oil when cold

Don’t check your oil when cold

While driving in the middle of NC between DC and FL, I made the mistake of checking my oil. It read low, really low.  I panicked and added some oil.  Later I was racking my brain over why the oil level seemed to vary so much depending on the reading. […]

Pet Hair Remover Gets Dog Hair out of Car Carpet, Leather, Seats, Carpets

I love my dog but I don’t love my dog in my car, because he shed so much!  His nails are also really sharp and quite frankly he likely can’t fit comfortably in my CLS, as he is huge. But in my Range Rovers and Toyotas I couldn’t get his […]

Upgrade Mid-Woofers in a Mercedes CLS 2011-2018 (likely others too)

Upgrade Mid-Woofers in a Mercedes CLS 2011-2018 (likely others too)

After I upgraded the front woofers, added dynamat, upgraded the tweeters, it was time to tackle the mid-woofers.  I wanted something that would fit, match the sensitivity, and that was well controlled.
