How does the K&N compare with the Banks cold air intake?

Not sure if thereís much difference in the intakes, Iíve had the K&Nís on my other trucks for years. But the Banks manifold and exhaust system sure would be nice.

How do you power the sub? Any details on brand, size, etc? Is it powered with 120 volts? I have the standard Jenson unit with four ceiling speakers. A sub would be nice if I could direct wire it from the head unit.

Iíll have to check when I get out to the rig in storage, but it might be a lot like this one from Jensen. Itís 12v powered then I think you would need a pair of rcaís to connect to the sub output on the Jensen head unit.

My sub is powered by 12v. It is connected to the Jensen radio. I simply select speakers C which is the subwoofer. Speakers A is the interior 4 ceiling speakers and speakers B is the two outside exterior speakers.
This was all installed by mfg as OEM. Sometime in 2017 I believe they stopped putting the subwoofer in. My unit is a 2016 model.

Thanks for the info. My 2017 only has the inside four speakers and the outside two speakers. No sub. Looks like I found something to spend my money on . Does it improve the sound much?

I like the bass it adds. Could I live without it? Probably. Do I like having it? Yes.

I like the sub for watching movies and to supplement the cab speakers when Iím driving. I donít have outside speakers so I donít have a speaker selector switch, I use the front-rear balance to fade between the cab speakers and the rear speakers with sub until it seems kind of balanced.
When Iím parked I fade it to full on the rears.

Anyone using a Genturi on a 2801? I am trying to figure out how to use it with suction cups. The exhaust exit is in a weird spot.

The gen exhaust is in a weird spot... I never needed to install ours on our 2800. But I had planned on using the slide out wall for one of the cups and the drivers door window for the other one.

On our 2390 the exhaust is directly below a window....made of plastic...

Funny, last night, I was brainstorming, trying to figure our how to rig the suction cups, and that is about what I came up with. It will require a longer tether and keeping it straight may be an issue. I will have to experiment when warmer weather arrives.

I don’t plan to run the genset too much as I’m opting for solar but am very interested in a gen-turi type setup. Please post your solution(s). I will be following this thread.
Thanks in advance.

Same here, but there are places and occasions where running the generator would be required even with the solar that I now have. I.e. Football tailgates at PSU where it is almost always cloudy! Having the gen-turi would have helped in this setting.

Man this winter never ends, the projects are stacking up and my rig is still snowed in at the storage lot lol. I picked up the new recliners and they are stacked in the garage next to the K&N kit. I just ordered the Sam-1 upgrade kit for the stove fan to replace the noisy and inefficient Heng thatís in there now. Looks like drilling out some spot welds is the toughest part of the install.

The new exhaust fan for the range hood arrived, it looks good but my rig is still snowed in. Found a cheap set of spot weld drills that should do the job.

Curious to see how this works out long term, and how long this company stays around.
