No... it means if you have a 1 month trial you can now extend it by 3 months... not get it free for life or no one would buy it 🙈Not only 3 months but 3 months a few times, it seems!
Yes but it counts on your install being perfect, you can’t out tune a bad install... if speakers sound presents to your brain as being elsewhere from the speaker itself due to reflections you still won’t get a centre image in the centre with levels matchedAny SMAART experts here know how functional the demo is? Does it enable you to tune your car better rather than just evaluate the software?
@dumdum any thoughts on this? I'm reading the other new software thread and timing and phase discussion. If I'm going to move drivers i want to get it right...Yes but it counts on your install being perfect, you can’t out tune a bad install... if speakers sound presents to your brain as being elsewhere from the speaker itself due to reflections you still won’t get a centre image in the centre with levels matched
for example a tweeter on the passenger side aimed on axis will give a massive amount of reflected energy from the drivers side window, due to the brain working out the location of a sound source from two ears of the drivers side ear gets lots of extra informantion the direction of the sound to the brain will be away from the speaker towards the drivers side by some amount
if you take phase and time information and set time alignment it will then average all the information at a single point and may very well time align for the direct sound and reflected also, this is not nesc the same as your brain hears and may be worse or better as there’s no head in the way
it’s very possible that when you set it by phase and time your brain may still perceive it differently
you need to position and aim your drivers so they sound like point sources and not spread images
every time I see mids and tweeters aimed across the cabin it makes me cringe... as the guys who have them like that are happy in there bubble, but anyone with more trained gearing will likely be able to pick fault with the sound... and it’s one of those things... once you’ve heard it and know how to listen you then become a better tuner, but also less tolerant of audio hiccups shall we say 👍🏼
once you do that and set drivers with smaart you will then get audio nirvana
but no one should kid themselves that smaart will sort a crappy installation (sometimes if using factory positions it’s unavoidable getting reflections... in that case it’s compromised from the start so it’s make the best of a bad job)
perhaps the easiest way to hear this is to play a sine wave generator pr slow sine sweep on your phone with a single speaker playing and allow it to play from one end of the frequency spectrum to the other... you will hear the sound move as you sit with your eyes shut in the main listening position
As I say once you’ve heard it happen you then listen for it and hear it
Kind of like the clock you have in your house you don’t hear ticking unless someone points it out... then you can’t help but hear it
I just installed DSP PC tool v4.72a and got the same exact results as you using the UMIK-1. (cal.txt file was updated to 90 degree UMIK-1 data prior)
I was just joking but measuring with my umik I couldn't get repeatable results. Well I guess that's not true it consistently reported all of my speakers is requiring 0 milliseconds of delay and set all of my speakers to the same distance as the reference driver. It did this five times in a row in pure silence. Is anyone getting better results. The results I'm getting are no more accurate than using an audio reference in r e w in other words complete garbage information

they need to change how the helix saves/loads files. The whole saving process is off. Sometimes when renaming soon as you hit save it reverts back to a damn random number like M- 1 of slot 1 or m-7 slot 7 etc. if you copy tune in slot 1 to say slot 6 then rename it and click save even with the little red box Unchecked it will revert to a M-6.
Can anyone provide a link to the proper way to save or how it works?
let’s say I started with nothing inany slots. I made a tune on slot 1 Named it no sub eq applied Then copied to slot 2 and named with sub eq Then I go to save it. Does a saved file contain every tune in every slot?
Another example What if I tuned 6 different tunes and saved it.
Then I tuned 3 more and saved it.
Would one file load 6 and the other file load 9?
Yes, I've accidentally linked the wrong channels before. I also can't see the last subwoofer channel N on my laptop unless I scroll.Yes that’s the red box I just emailed them asking for detailed explanation on the save process and anything related to it.
i asked them if in the next software update to place each channels box in the eq sextion
Next to the damn channel it’s with Right now the
check Box is next to the next channel.
I don’t have a box icon so use # as the box for example
channel 1 # channel 2 #
I would prefer it
Channel 1# Channel 2#
The way it is now it’s way too easy to link the wrong channels and mess it all up.
nope. My system has been hooked up over a year now with no changes Recently got engine noise and figured out it was from the software update even though I read they fixed this issue. I had it bad with the beta version that had auto time alignment. Tried the new software and have it still. It is faint with new software and barely heard in the tweets. But soon as I revert back to old software it’s dead quiet .Did you do this ? It’s was posted in another thread by dobslob. Worked for me. I saw you were in that thread
Could you somehow tapped into the "reverse" wire like is done with cameras? will it do it if you just put in reverse but do not move the car? One thought In had was that the wire I have tapped into somehow shuts off when I put the truck in drive. However, the audio doesn't shut off until I...www.diymobileaudio.com
Like mentioned above, check the ADEP.3 setting in the software. Apparently, the setting can change to "Enabled" after the upgrade, even if it was "Disabled" before - and can cause noise issues. Just make 100% sure it's still "Disabled" - that is what the poster above was suggesting.nope.
