    Nothing software side....so I guess I will be buying some crossovers. On a different note, I got most of the sanding done on my bezel...still a few problem spots in the corners and stuff that are now a lot more noticable since I got excited and primered it...turned out well and I'm not sure if I want to perfect it more since it's in spots that are mostly hidden..pictures to come.

    Sorry.. missed those posts from the 14th..

    I was looking for a software solution also and I haven't found anything. I believe it is possible, but will (at the least) introduce some kind of delay.

    It would most likely be a pre-processor, maybe even at a driver level. It would first have to capture the audio, filter out certian frequencies, then output to the correct channel (assuming different channels get different frequencies). So you could use your 'front' outputs for highs, 'rears' for lows, subwoofer for subwoofer, etc.

    Basically, it doesn't seem feasible. A hardware soultion seems the only way right now unfortunately Maybe there is a way to design a computer controlled hardware solution like in a regular HU, who knows :P

    Good work on the bezel. If you're 'not sure' if you should perfect it more, then I definitely would! :P I'd rather over perfect it then miss a few spots like I did (on the underside of the screen, but it still bugs me).

    What kind of bondo did you use to smooth out the dash job? I was going to just do wood because I couldn't find something else to smooth it out, but this would be much easier.

    I just used regular automotive bondo to smooth it out. Used bondo-glass to keep the bezel in place.

    I hope that works. I got Bondo-Fiberglass resin jelly and I can't get the holes to smooth out or anything.

    the hd should be the only real thing to worry about. if your really vibrating, the only other thing i can think of is making sure any pci or other connections/cards are secure, or lued in somehow. ive heard of pci cards vibrating loose.

    If you're looking for a skull rattling type sound, I'm not sure how long the harddrive would hold up. I have a 12" sub right now, but its no where near that brain scrambling level.

    If you want something that loud, I'd look into a flash memory based solution rather than a harddrive..
