i have my left side delayed at .9 ms. you just slowly delay your side untill you feel that the singer/artist's voice is coming from the middle of the stage.... if that makes sense. you might also want to adjust your balance (left or right). for my setup i had to set my balance 3 to the left to sound right (to me at least).

so does that mean you delay your left side to match the right side? and will it improve the sound by alot? cuz i dont care about the sound passengers will get i only car about the sound that will come out of the drivers seat.

Depends on your setup, but for me it really improved where the center image was. It does completely throw off the passenger's staging, though :)

It really helps to use a track that you know is recorded with the singer or an instrument at dead-on center...Track 16 on the IASCA test disc is recorded like this.
