[offtopic mode] thanks mate but a-pillars is the last thing I am in need now! [/offtopic mode]^^^Hey pankrok, I see you have a CX-7, any interest in some a pillars that are built to house a Hybrid L3 and L1 tweet in them? They are just sitting in a box in my garage and I'd like to get them out of the way and recoupe some of the funds spent on them. Sorry to be off topic.
What improvement do you hear in your h701's mod? Here's what you know the H800 is going to give you:The question I have now is will this sound better than my Matt Roberts modified 701? It obviously has more tweakability but will that trumph Matt's magic?
Perhaps, Rex, you are right; however... we still need to see what the w910 is going to sell for first, right?Hoot, good thing you waited huh?
Feel it's not really polite to say things like "why didn't you do like ...(brand name)..."great input Jim!
how come not 24/96? is it too early for alpine to "follow" audison?
and I guess not a chance for using usb as audio input to the unit (carpc issue again!)
If you are doing ImprintEQ, it will tell you where to place the mic, you'll place the mic and then exit the car while it chirps, beeps and tunes itself to happiness .Jim, for someone who has never tuned with a PC, do just bring your laptop inside the car and tune with the software and a mic? You then perhaps load the settings via USB, or a memory card?
Also, is the new RUX controller smaller than a single DIN and thus could be placed many different places? Maybe even above or below a double-din should space allow? It has very little physical depth to it, correct?
Two other questions, if I may:
Thanks so much, again....
- Will any of the new 2011 Alpine single-din CD or media players have optical out and be able to work with the RUX/H800 combo?
- Will only the iPhone control Pandora from the w910, or other new Alpine Pandora-cable units, or will one be able to stream Pandora from an Android or Blackberry device, as well?
For Music and Internet Radio, there is nothing better for you than the iphone ... I begrudgingly switched after two years of being a Droid and BB lover....it's just easier. As a phone, thats a topic for a different day, but now that Verizon has it .. its gonna pretty hard to look away from for most.Great answers from Jim! I too am curious about the Pandora functionality as I have a DroidX. I have been holding off on switching over to the iPhone, but now that Verizon has picked it up, I may make the switch unless more manufacturers start offering Android support as well.
Over USB, I know for a fact that we run digital out of the iPhone to the DACs of our HU's ... I'd imagine it'd pass to the DACs in the H800, but like HD Radio .. I'm waiting on the final, final answer about where the D->A takes place.Is Pandora streamed over Bluetoof, USB, or lineout on Alpine compatible head units?
If it's anything but USB then I would not worry about how it leaves the W910. Not that it's gonna sound bad, but bluetoof compression and the added DA/AD of line out is going to ruin the ideology of digital out to the processor.
You're all welcome. I'm happy to be here as I'm a DIYer from the start, much like a lot of us in this industry. I'm not tech support, so I can't answer random complaints and stuff, but tweako stuff like this is right up my alleyPerhaps the thread title should be changed to be more relevant (now that we have a name for it).
I don't know about you guys, but I'm very glad we now have an Alpine rep available on the forum.
Perhaps JBL's Andy Wehmeyer was a good influence? Let's hope other companies join in as well.
Jim, thanks once more for the input!
Jim, thanks for dropping in.
I have a couple questions as well:
- Will the 800 also have graphic eq? If so, can it be used in conjunction with the parametric or will you have to choose one like the 701?
- Are the crossover points 1/3 octave or something else? You mentioned pc setup...do we have the luxury to manually type in desired crossover points?
- With the parametric, what is the bandwidth (q) adjustable from?
