The vehicle that you brought to the GTG sounded really good, and your tuning skills are evolving as well. It's very neat to go to meet ups and competitions and hear other peoples systems. Every time that I go, I learn something from someone that I can implement for use on my system.Glad to see you’re making strides towards nailing down a tuning process Gerald. I just redid the tune for my Sienna last night and I’m shocked at how much better it sounds now. I followed the same process I used on my CX5 which I’ve perfected over the last year on my Ford.
I wonder how Jim is making out with what he learned at the meet. I haven’t heard from him. I was going to suggest that he disable his midrange in his DSP and tune the system as a two way active. If he still has the same issue than it’s not his midrange that is the problem.
A lot of people have an aversion to competitions because they do not want to feel the pressure of measuring up or think they have to have a really serious system.
I found that the opposite is true. The first competition that I went to, in fall of 2015 in Syracuse, NY I had no idea what a sound stage even was. At every competition that I have attended I have met a bunch of great guys that have helped me along the way and some of which I would consider some of my best friends.
Just from attending and hanging out at these places, and spending time with others that have been involved with I've learned tips and tricks from many people along the way, just from having conversations or from observing and listening to both vehicles and people engaged in conversation.
I'm curious to see the outcome of Jim's dilemma. It was very nice of you to spend as much time as you did trying to help him out. It was a very generous gesture of your time and knowledge.
Overall, I thought that this particular GTG was the best so far, because of how laid-back it was. We have a good group of guys and it was great to see both old and new faces.
Thank you for promoting the event on the other forum. I enjoyed exchanging demos as well as our conversation. Already itching for Spring to roll around so I can attend more competitions as well as having our Spring Meet Up!
