never mind guys i found it ... you can only adjust it in normal mode, but this thing is really amazing in pro mode, i turned the bass all the way down and the treble all the way up and adjusted my crossover and my 12's are still slammin,

pro mode and eclipse = sound heaven! :)

If it is like the 8455 or 8454 then pro mode can adjust the sub. You go to time alignment and increase or decrease the decible rating for the sub channel.

yup i wish my 8455 just had a straight up menu to change the settings on each speaker but yea you gotta go to the TA menu and change the decibals there.

pro mode just lets you fine tune your sound on the unit, also i just connected the ipod to it today with a mini jack to mini jack cable, the clarity is amazing ... I LOVE MY ECLIPSE ... i will never buy another brand of h/u

Thanks for the help guys. I've purchase the eclipse cd8443 used 6 months ago and never knew it have a Pro mode.

Zach,

I just brought an Ipod video, what kinda of cable did you use to connect it to the deck? Can I buy the Monster Cable ipod cable for this?

That's the typical reaction :cool:

And what's a mini cable anyway?

At least invest in the cable that connects to your data port. The mini jack sounds horrible on the ipod.

Exactly what I was thinking....but I've never tried it so i can't comment

And yes Prozac should help you adjust :laugh:

The data port is the connector on the bottom. The same connector used for usb transfer on the computer. A data cable costs about 20 to 30 dollars and charges the ipod at the same time. I highly suggest the smart chargers that are about 30. Smart chargers condition the battery and prolong the battery life by a very large magin.
The mini jack is very poor. Listen to music with strong percussion or horns and you will hear a large percentage of distortion and clipping. I nearly sold the ipod after using it for a week due to this. I bought the data cable and was very pleased. The sound is still a little poorer than some other portable units I have used. The sony sounds incredible. But the ipod video is by far the most userfriendly and simply enjoyable to use. By the way. I may be wrong, but I believe the newer ipods can't replace the battery. If you have ever owned a cell phone and had the battery life deteriorate in under a year, then you understand the importance of a smart charger.

You may have missunderstood me. The data port on the ipod. The ipod has two ways to send out the signal. The poorest quality is the minijack. The best method is to use a dataport (connector on the bottom of the ipod) to minijack or rca connection.

Here is a example of what I mean. The belkin charger plugs into the data port (dock connector) of the ipod and has a new minijack plug. You can get minijack plugs that come straight out of the dock connector if you prefer. I bought the monster charger with minijack plug for 24 at circuit city.
