The idea with the new switches is really cool. It will definitely give a more upmarket feel to the whole interior. More in line with the Titanium X models e.g Mondeo and the new Focus. I like it and can't wait to see the progress :)

Most IP's block access to that site due to it being on an illegal server.
It would be better if you could Dropbox the file.

 

Thanks for the heads up. I will upload it to my Dropbox account and post the link here so that everyone can have access to it. I found the files on it very helpful and they were all recorded at a high bitrate.

That looks cool! I think it does something similar as what my AV receiver does i.e measure the distances of the speakers from the mic, then calibrate them in order for the driver to hear them at their best. I just had a look at the pictures you put up and as I suspected, my headunit, which is the AVHx2500BT model doesn't support the calibration. It is a very nifty feature to have and I think Mr_Spock's headunit had something similar. 

 

I myself personally like to fiddle with the knobs until I get a sound that feels good to my ears. I used these sound files to spend about 1hr tuning the sound in my car to my personal taste. It's a free torrent of files that were made for tuning sound systems. If there is any issues with me linking the files on this particular website, Mods, please let me know as from what I gather, this is under free license :)

Might be handy to have this as well Lenny if you don't want to buy the Mic to eq your system. From my experience with my AV receiver when I used the mic to calibrate it, it was a good starting point and then i tweaked it to my taste. Might be the same for your car :)

I like this idea better than your previous one for the same reasons. Foolproof and you still retain the use of your bootspace when you need it. Also, shouldn't be too hard to implement. Nice :)

Cool. I think you have a nice set there of components that will complement each other very well. Coupled that with the Silent Coat for sound deadening, you are on to a winning combination :)

 

Exciting times ahead man.
