Is there an adaptor that can power a head unit from the mains? (UK)
I live in the UK and I have a Pumpkin ND0294B. Configuring the software in the car (trying out various pieces of software etc.) is a bit of a ball ache. Is there such a thing as a head unit-to-UK mains adaptor I can buy?

Help with clipping in speakers and head unit gain
Ok so I'm getting really pitchy highs when I turn my volume up on my Kenwood KFC-X303 cd receiver. I had a friend tell me to lower the right end of the line graph and I did so. Then he told me to lower the gain. I'm pretty new to car audio so I found two gains one in the crossover and one in DTE...
