    Improved? My god, it was phenominal last time. Have you gotten the rest of the speakers going yet? You only had the highs going last time, correct? You're audio setup humbles my fabrication. Any news on that front? Have you messed with the trim for the sound processor any more?

    I have no plans to do the rest of the speakers (for now...possible future project)...for my listening purposes, I run only the front stage, and if I want, I can source from the factory head unit and have the whole 5.1 setup running (albeit with mis-matched speakers). I'd actually be more interested in going to a three-way speaker (midbass, mid, tweet) set for the front stage and moving the tweets to the a-pillars to gain a little stage height before I'd even think of providing for additional channels of output (center, rear surround). Additional speakers for two-channel sources can hinder a good sound stage as much as they help, if you don't do a lot of tuning and process the sound properly.

    I sure ain't missing that center channel on my dash, nor do I feel a need for new rear-deck speakers.

    I'll be working on the sound processor trim over the next few days, as well as getting my tweeters set up right. I just finished the amp rack in the trunk, all I have to do there is fab the false bottom (easy). Still agonizing over that HVAC display LCD I moved...I can make it look good, but it's prone to movement and I can't help but thinking it could be better.
    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)

    Yeah...good thing my audio sensibilities (two sets of drivers for two channel sources) are in line with my checkbook.

    ....well, somewhat, anyway. The wife already refers to my car as "that other woman".

    Well it's looking like a rainy day saturday, so I won't make it more than likely. My baby hasn't seen rain since I've owned it. I'm crossing my fingers that this weather system moves on instead of stalling.
