    I am reimagining my audio setup which consists of the following; Helix Dsp running Steg Tweeters, Scanspeak 4" mids. Peerless 8" in doors and 2 JBL fuse ( one fuse "in half") under my seats. My question is, can I run the fuse mono? or will this mess up my tuning. I can squeeze a bit more...

    Hello! So, for my intended dream audiophile build (theoretically) there's a grand total of 14 dedicated channels around the cabin. 6 of those being hifi 3/4" tweeters & popular opinion states that as an awful idea. Not sure I understand the problem? In my mind if Maria Brink can put out a treble...

    So I've read that a system should always sound decent with the sub off, which makes sense. But is it safe to say that a system always sound decent before tuning? Or have people ran into situations where a driver sounds like garbage until EQing made it great?

    Everyone seems to have their own technique when it comes to measuring their drivers when tuning. What is yours? Getting consistent and repeatable measurements can be difficult. And that can cause a tune that sounds awful to the ear look great on RTA or sound great and look awful, depending on...

    I'm working on getting better at tuning and figuring out what to pay attention to, and what to ignore. So I'm looking for some advice on what to do when it comes to reflections. As an example, in my car there is always a dip around 600-750hz in my passenger side midrange measurements (left hand...

    Hi All - I’ve been reading here for a while and never posted. I’ve been doing my own stereo installs since the 80’s and this year i took the ultimate leap of faith and bought a ton of gear for my new truck and had it installed due to a neck surgery that has me limited in my mobility. Problem...

    Always good to analyze your Pink Noise before you start using it for everything. Either with Audacity, or REW. Personally I use the DD1 track. Kicker lab grade is legit as well. (imported wav files)

    Hi everyone, This is my first post here so I'd like to start off by saying nice to meet you all. I have had a sealed enclosure in my ute for a good 6 months now. I went sealed as I thought I was very constricted for size having only gone off forum research from others previously taking on the...

    I am attempting to model my full system (i.e sub/ mid bass/ mid range/ tweeter) to align the phase based on crossover points of each driver to get a baseline before tuning. That said, I have found no discussion on the difference between the System Overall Transfer Function Phase graph and the...

    First post here and new to the forum, apologies if covered elsewhere. Question on gains and target curves for active 4-way SQ setups. Most curves I’ve looked at depict a 12-15 dB roll off from subs to highs. Does anyone use differing test tone levels to set gains and would this help build in a...

    I'm looking for recommendations for a good Car Audio Tuner in Michigan or Northern Ohio/Indiana. Already have a full install with good equipment and sound deadening that uses a TWK-88 DSP for EQ. I've already spent too much time (over 2 years) upgrading equipment, messing around with REW and an...

    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!) Anyone ever done anything like this? Any tips? My effort was I guess just going to be tuning...

    Hey all, quick question that I couldn't seem to find the answer to anywhere else Referring to this image https://imgur.com/fJsO1hW How does the tuning work in a double baffle configuration where the port width effectively changes along its length? Do you use the wider or the narrower width...
