    Time Alignment

    Is there any time alignment software for apple machines, if not put inside the car got no time alignment. Staging of the sound will be at center, not so nice to hear.

    thanks

    It is not clear what you mean when you say 'time alignment'. Do you mean control over left/right fade or something different?

    I think he's talking about time correction. Its where you can tell your audio tuner or headunit how far (physically) away your speakers are from where the main listening point (usually the drivers seat) is, so that it can calculate how long it needs to delay the signal to have it all reach the same point simultaneously. To answer your question, I do not know of any software out there that can do this. Its mostly just on higher end headunits.

    In the distances used in a car can you really tell the difference?? I can see maybe in a home theater setup, but we're looking at what 15 feet at the most?
    Failure is not an option....

    In that case, I recall someone else asking about this awhile ago and the answer was no.

    yes, the difference can be substantial, it can make the difference in an accurate sound stage VERY noticeable. This is something that all of the full car audio processors have built in.

    Mac may not have the ability, but there is a program that can do it in windows. If you're interested, check out the car audio forum and look for the 'software options for tuning' thread.

    I agree, the difference is noticeable (at least when you can switch back and forth).

    The M-Audio software for the Sonica Theater USB has this ability, but the drivers (e.g. so you can use more than just the headphone jack) don't work on Intel Macs and it doesn't appear that it ever will

    I don't know if other sound cards support that or not.
