  1. Tuning for Tailgating - Any tips?

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I have an active system. Since my DSP allows for multiple presets/modes, I was thinking of making a preset for tailgating (playing music outside the vehicle for say, a pre-concert parking lot pre-game!)

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion

  5. Time Alignment in REW?

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    Is there any way to confirm time alignment is set properly with REW? I upgraded to a VXi 8 channel last weekend. I've got a basic tune on it (will be getting more into it this weekend). I've input the distances to my listening position (driver's seat) and checked it 3 times, so I'm pretty sure...
