Great Project I enjoyed reading through your log.
How do you like the MS-8? any issues at all?
I really didn't care for the MS-8 remote and inquired with JBL on converting the connection to something that my carPC could understand, they were of very little help, so I choose Rockford for the smaller remote. One thing you need to know about the 3sixty if you are thinking about it, the wired remote will not function with USB connected, the software is not touch friendly, I am currently on my third unit! (First Remote no work, second worked for 5 mos died last week and 3rd remote no work).
I am really thinking about the MS-8!
