    Audiophile Carputer...

    I'm in the process of planning on building a carputer... and after reading a lot on this forum I sill have a couple of questions for you guys...

    Can I run a 3 way + sub active system,with time alignment EQ and crossovers by just using a carputer?

    Would it be safe for the tweeter and mids ? because of the pop thats is generated when the system is switched on/off??

    Yes, you can. Many people have audiophile-qulity sound via a PC. Some of our members even compete in SQ competitions with their computers... And win!

    The "pop" can be eliminated if you set your system up properly.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    so you mean they take care of all the processing via the pc not an outside processor like H701?

    thanks dp, i've been reading different threads and am interested in assembling a computer based audiophile system. the only reason i introduced myself by describing my audio hardware was for you to understand where i'm going with this. i basicly want a large cache of media with studio-like play back. please help me compare via,pentium,apple,etc. also sound cards & software. as i said i have very little computer knowledge but i think discussions with the people in this forum can get me there. well what do you guys think?

    Millee - I would suggest reading around the forum and starting the comparison yourself.

    I also would not jump into other peoples threads and try and direct it towards yourself. You will be better served to start a new thread for yourself.

    regarding studio quality sound...

    Talk to Durwood, he's taken the processing on the PC and implemented it.

    I was in the process, but just simply don't have the time to mess with it right now and the 701 works great for me currently.

    I will say this much, you had better put your reading and your thinking cap on. This kind of a project is not for the meek. It will take a good deal of time to understand it, let alone implement it.

    to redgtivr6, i appologize for redirecting this is the first forum i've been on. i thought i was replying to darquepervert. i've been reading & studying for the last two weeks. i'm ready to go, i'm just sure where i'm going. as far as thinking caps, i'm even smarter than focal guy (lol) and very tenacious. i would love to talk to durwood. i think it might be better if he e-mailed me directly or something. thank you.

    no no no. there is a thread in which someone presents himself as a focal rep and then makes a fool of himself. all you guys just tore him up. mine was just a little joke.

    yeah, I know... I still think it's funny, but being smarter than him ain't saying much either

    I don't think he presented himself as a focal rep, only a Focal fan...

    please, please, please don't confuse the two...he's quite honnestly a disgrace to the name.

    Feel free to post all you want.

    Start a new thread in the car audio section, that's what I would suggest you do.

    Forums are really easy to use, they just take some getting used to.

    If you want, I'll even start the thread for you...
