    I think it sucks, it's killing my ears and I think I'm actually getting deafer in my right ear every day. The sound coming from the speakers has zero bass and so much treble it's killing me. I don't notice it too much since the subwoofer provides all the bass but after a year of it, I can notice it's still doing something behind the scenes. But saying that, I've had lots of passengers in the car and nobody else has noticed it so maybe I'm just picky. But I can guarantee you it's not as good as a regular CD player unless you find some way to preamp it.

    I am only getting audio out of the right channel and not the left channel. I have the shunt jumper the middle pins. Is there supposed to be another shunt on there somewhere. The manual says that there are 2, while I only have one. Also when I connected my sub amp to the mic jack after configuring everything it is still putting music out of my 10" sub, when I just bass only. Any ideas?

    like i said, not nit picking, just making sure you saw that, the instructions were great and well illustrated.

    i have a question on the software end, and that is, do you know of a program or utility at this point that would offer the equivalent of a virtual joy stick for the speakers, to give the same individual control channel to channel that a regular head unit would have? something like the equivalent to fade and balance for a regular head unit, except the added advantage that they are all separate audio channels.

    am i making sense? let me know

    I really would like to get this working and I tried a year ago or so. Has anyone with an M10K mobo, gotten this to work? I wonder if it's not possible?

    Yeah, I got mine to work. I just had to change a few jumper settings and plug up the Amps and it worked like a charm, well at least until the M-10000 sound card quit working on me.

    Damn, that sucks. Do you remember what jumpers you had to change to get it to work. I would really appreciate it. Also any other info on what I need to do to get it to work.

    Can you outline what exactly you're using and how it works? I think it might be helpful.Thanks.

    Which jumpers are you talking about? I didn't change any of the jumper settings, it should work out of the box with the instructions I provided.
    You may have the center channel feeding into the amp for the subwoofer which would provide sound from your sub, but most likely that's not your problem. I also got sound from my sub but I went into the software and disabled the center channel which helped a little and then I turned a few settings on the amp to change the cutoff for the sound going to it. Now it's about 98% bass.

    Ya, balance and fade, I know what you mean. This would be pretty good but I don't know of anything that would give it to you short of an actual equalizer. You could probably get an electronic single DIN equalizer you can plug the RCA into and then run them out to the amp. You'd lose some signal in RCA cables that long though if you put the equalizer in the dash.
