Agreed on both counts

Do you guys only calibrate the drivers seat or driver and passenger? There usually 2 of us in my car ( me and the gf )
Calibrate driver only until you get it where you want it, then calibrate it for everyone else

I hope this ends up working good I primarily listen to techno and another thread I heard someone say "if you listen to techno maybe the logic 7 isnt a good thing"
some of the best sounding stuff in my car is elecronicish stuff. i dont normally listen to it otherwise.
Current Settings :
  • Sub = None
  • Front = 2-way, 35Hz subsonic filter at 18dBstill think this is pushing it, but your experince and testing should prevail over my opinion, 180Hz at 24dB Hi/Lo I figure 200hz won IASCA and even with better than stock drivers, I have found it works better than <200hz
  • Center = 1-way, 180Hz at 24dB
  • Sides = 1-way, 180Hz at 24dB
  • Calibration volume = -23dB
  • Main volume after calibration = -8dB
If I go higher than -8 on MS8 volume it sounds a little distorted so may try recalibrating at - 21/22 and see if it allows me to get cleaner output at -6 or so MS8 Vol
what kind of distortion sound?...what speakers?
Also may try the subsonic at 40/18 but so far Im getting good mid bass with mild distortion at higher levels but will continue to tune and post my results.
I might work down from 50 as opposed to up.

Anyone feel free to chime in or share any advice... Def making progress
