Hi Nikita,any info regarding the roadEQ?
No, this cannot be done with one RUX.Question for Jim
I think i remember talking to our rep at ces and he was talking about strapping 2 h800 together to get 16 adjustable outputs, do you know if you can do this?
I can understand you were upset with the H650, being you were only allowed to have Imprint tuning, but how could you lump the 87 in there too? That was an awesome HU that had some of the best tuning options this side of a P9 and great SQ as well.The H-650 was probably the worst car audio purchase I've ever made and, regrettably, soon followed by the second worst, the 9887 imprint combo.
From what I'm reading about this new unit it sounds like Alpine is finally getting it right but forgive me if I'm still a bit skeptical.
Basic control - same as the other HUs. Yes, it can be run without a RUX, tuning will need to be done via PC. There is no need for the RUX unless you want to tweak on the fly.Jim,
Thanks for all of your wisdom.
Could you please let us know to what extent the CDA-117 will be able to manipulate the h800 and if you can operate it without the controler?
Thanks for your help,
Thanks Jim!Hi Nikita,
The RoadEQ will use the tuning mic (needs to be kept plugged), that you place:
a) In-Ceiling above driver
b) Driver's visor
c) Rear View Mirror area
You'll measure the sound characteristics of the car parked and off with everything closed (or the condition you want it to EQ for).
1) Place the mic in the car
2) Measure the car
3) Set RoadEQ Level - 1/2/3
The first two positions focus on the driver, the rear view placement would be for the car center. You could theoretically place it near anywhere you wanted the EQ to be "focused".Thanks Jim!
So the tunning mic won't be the one from ktx-100? And, from this positions positions I can notice that the roadEQ will be basically for the driver, right? can it be tunned for the car center, for an instance?
We are waiting until we get out Pre-Production piece in here with all the final tweaks in it before we benchmark it (SQ wise - Freq Resp, S/N, THD, etc) .. but we're looking pretty good on paper to stand side by side with it.Jim,
Don't know if this has been asked, but how does the new 800 compare to the older holy grail F#1 H900?
You know we only doJim,
Will there be a 'limited edition Chrome and Yellow series"???
THEN YOU COULD "AUTOGRAPH" ONE FOR ME!!!!! hahahahaha
SIGNED ONES ALWAYS SOUND "BETTER" AND COST MORE.....lol
I see you guys are using multeq (assumedly for imprint)... curious if you considered using dynamic eq as well (iow: a volume dependent EQ that can be either done automatically via imprint or even custom tailored). I ask this question because there is another bit of hardware out there that allows for this in the car audio realm, however, that DSP's controller has to be used in order to control that feature via volume. The problem with that is simply having two different sources (much like would be the case if one only bought the h800/c800 and used it with a non-ai-net headunit). With the way the w910+h800 sync, the need for a separate volume control would be mitigated, and quite honestly would definitely be a HIGH factor in many's purchase decision.
On another note, would it be possible for you to show us what the EQ screen looks like? Just for curiousity's sake.
Again, I really appreciate you being here to answer these questions.
Cheers for the feedback, Jim!Hi Erin,
Once again, I have to reiterate that this is not using Audyssey tuning, rather our own proprietary tuning that allows for customer defined target curves and after the fact adjustment. However, it looks like you found some of our leftover slop from the original development.. that'll be ImprintEQ for production (realize we started development on this guy many moons ago before we had enough market feedback to determine the need to do our own tuning algorithm). Thanks for being a beta tester!
The RoadEQ is effectively a dynamic EQ, in that it actively EQ's the signal with reference to a quiet cabin to achieve a consistent sound regardless of cabin noise. Not sure which piece you are talking about, but you don't have to be shy, just type the name in here.
Here is a shot of the EQ
