Glad to hear it. I appreciate the response as well. Any special method for mic placement when running Dirac or straight from the manual?I’m sure my reply won’t be satisfying, and it is just typed words unless you could hear my car, and you may come away from that experience still not satisfied. But I’m happy with my system - maybe not 100% satisfied, but nearly 90%.
At the present time, I have three main tunes on the car. 1) 3511 crossover point between tweets and mid range 2) 2000 crossover point between tweets and mid range 3) same as 1 but with a 2db dip in the curve around 2.5k for the rowdy stuff (Smashing Pumpkins, Flyleaf, Breaking Benjamin).
All three with the same method. Crossovers, Time Alignment (obtained by completing a 7 channel run), no EQ or levels in the Plug-In, 2 channel Dirac with a curve that I have developed based off a 1/2 Whitledge curve. All three sound very similar because of the curve (I believe). I perceive a lot of detail, staging/ imaging that is better than when I used other processors, and bass response that is accurate. A local friend has heard the car several times, and two trusted friends will hear it next weekend and will tell me if it is decent to their ears or if it needs to be set on fire and rolled down a hill.
But to answer your question - I get repeatable results that provides a sound I’m happy with.

My goal right now is to try out different speakers in the car without having to manually tune each setup. If Dirac can do what it does consistently, it would allow for the speakers themselves being the only variable and not the tune.
I know that with past auto-tune dsps, people would have a difficult time getting the same auto-tune result even when using the same exact settings (including the crossovers) with the same exact speakers and in the same locations.
