Ok I wanted to see how many people want advanced audio tuning features.

1) Would make a Front End more "attractive" over one with out it and

2) How much would you pay for it?

Car audio processors performing the following tasks can cost anywhere from $100 to well over $1000 depending on what features you want.

The features I am taking about but are not limited too:

  1. Audio routing to particular jacks/channels
  2. Up to 4 way Crossovers/filtering 6/12/18/24/30/36 db octave (different filter types such as Butterworth, LW4, Chebychev etc or even one based on FIR filtering would be ideal)
  3. Speaker Timing Delays
  4. 1/3 ocatve 31 band EQ
  5. Phase correction 0/180 or even adjustable

Here is a thread we have been discussing:

Software options for Tuning

Here was a request about a frontend based on the foobar player which offers crossovers

Foobar2000, anyone?

If you don't know what some of these features mean do a little research. One Car audio unit that does this is the Alpine PXA-H701. But we have computers that can do so much more...Can you dig it?
