The problem as I understand it in regards to the AVC, is that it is not a linear rise in voltage as speed increases.
In other words lets say you have the AVC on and it is putting out 1 volt. You increase speed to the next threshold and instead of it jumping to 1.25 volts it actually jumps to 4.5 volts. (These are arbitrary numbers used only to show the non-linearity thay are not actuall numbers). It wont take long before you are stressing everthing in the system, amp speakers etc, and then BOOM! (sorry I couldnt resist)
While I think I understand why the MOCO did this, I mean the headunit only puts out 25 watts/channel, so as speed increases you still want to be able to hear the music on your 25k plus scoot, right? So rather than, I dont know, put a better windshield on it, or actually put some decent audio in it, they decided to just add voltage. Its not a big deal with just the head unit, I had the volume maxed out when I first got mine and while muddled and with a little distortion, no harm was done. Of course, I still couldnt hear it very well at highway speeds, at which point the upgrades began.
So now that we actually have some decent power going to the speakers, that jump in voltage, becomes exponentialy worse and BOOM!(yup, I did it again) blown speakers.
Word on the street is that a couple of the really high end aftermarket amps really flatten out the voltage spike, I think its just easier to turn off the AVC.
Hope this cleared things up a bit, and my memory on the subject isnt completely gone, yet.
15 RGS Vivid Black. Lots of Black stuff cause we all know Black is the fastest color. Custom Dynamics turn signals and PlasmaRods.
A.C.E. powerflex headpipes, and a better than stock stereo.
