I'm not using the Allocator delay because it delays both pairs of speakers which is no good in the car. Good idea for delays of drivers in the same plane or enclosure and you are spaced evenly in the middle of your speakers, but no good for car use. You need something that delays each side seperately. The resolution on the Voxengo Delay is perfect and you can do each L and R seperately. :)
Cool on your install. You'll have to let us know how it goes. I want to switch to all software processing this weekend. What card are you using?
I didn't look too close at the allocator But now i see it is for a stereo pair.... That would have made it pretty easy..
I Will be using the Echo Audio LAYLA3G Audio Interface.. Really great specs if you have room. It has 8 channels outand Mic preamp for the WinMLS software, pretty much everything i need until a better solution is found.. Not cheap though..
Oh ya I forgot you said that in your email. That's cool because you could RTA right in your car with that card since it has phantom power on the mic. You got the MVC ok right?
I've been very busy lately, mainly with my audio part of my setup. I have been testing a few things for the carputer but no real advancements in that area except for integrating my factory volume knob control. I'll get into that a bit later. For now here is what I have been up to....new speakers! here is what I put in my door for midbass-a SEAS L18RNX.
The only problem I was worried about since these are home drivers, is that the voicecoil is open for water or whatever else trys to fall in there.
So I picked up some of these foam baffles from partsexpress to use as rain shields.
I then chopped off what I didn't need from the back of the driver and the bottom so that the sound is not sealed in.
So now it's time for them to go into the door.
Here is my door with the panel removed. Note how mazda did somethign cool, there is a plastic composite panel that you can remove to access the interior of the door. :)
Removing the window
And finally a naked door :)
Next up is the Raammat I bought from Rick. I don't get too crazy with it like some people. I usually only apply one layer and maybe beef up areas close to the speaker or in the center of large flat panels. I don't run alot of power to my speakers so I usually don't get too many vibrations, plus Mazda builds some pretty quiet doors on their own nowadays.
Then right behind the speaker area in the door, I applied a small layer of Ensolite which I also got from Rick at Raammat. This will help to absorb waves from the rear of speaker. He suggests not using too much of this behind it because it could overdampen the speaker.
Next a few spots on the interior door panel where it vibrates. Notice how mazda put this white felt stuff to help reduce vibratiosn. Kudos Mazda-I was going to apply the ensolite here too but this was a pleasant surprise. That white stuff was not there in my 2004 Mazda 6.
Also of special note, Mazda also put a gasket around the edges of the door so it does not vibrate against the metal of the door. It's no wonder I wasn't in any hurry to deaden the door. Mazda did a good job in reducing it for me. :)
And finally with the speakers mounted:
sweet, your getting me anxious... another 3 weeks till i get to start work on mine, so where do you compete anyway?
