    Competitors ?

    If you compete in car audio competitions, what tips would you pass on , the ones you found most beneficial!

    Really. Improve. The "sound" of a system ?

    . . . and there you have it from the people who compete in the IASCA/et cetera / / / '/

    Try to adjust your system the way that they do [basically, put speakers in factpry locations /dash or door/rear deck/etc..,]

    Power it up and win a ribbon or trophy !

    Re: Competitors ?

    I think it's really hard to answer this general of a question. A lot of improving a system is identifying what is wrong with it, so that would likely be different for every car.

    I will throw out some tips that I find to be helpful recently:
    - Kill peaks, don't fill narrow troughs.
    - Time align by tape measure to get close, then by ear. Phase is everything.
    - Sound deaden everything. Then deaden everything you missed the first time.

  5. Thanks Hic thanked for this post

    - Phase is everything.

    - Sound deaden everything. Then deaden everything you missed the first time.
    tap/flick/tuning fork the speaker mount to check for resonation [ add more deadner if it resonates/vibrates ]

    add under dash padding/mats/towels to change sound ! ! !

    Do you find that "Phase" is best with speakers all wired negative to negative and positive to positive ?
    Have you found that boosting or lowering volume on the rightside or leftside helps to "center" (especially with tweeters) ?
