turn off HU > hold down right knob > this brings up another menu to get rid of the inverted display and demo mode.

you can also just hit display while the hu is off and it cancels the demo mode, too.

ok.

*Turn the unit off by holding down the volume knob. Let go.

*Hold down the EQ button. Let go.

*The deck will flip out, exposing the jack on the bottom (now leading) edge.

*Plug in your sensor, and hang it where your head would be, or wrap and clip it around the headrest.

*Click the knob on the right, and it'll begin beeping a countdown.

*Get outta the car, and hope it's quiet outside.

*Yes, it's okay to stick your ear on the window :P

*This would be a great opportunity to read the manual.

You'll hear periods of tapping from each woofer individually, and some pink noise of varying volume. It'll take a while, and when it's done you'll see 'AutoEQ Complete' on the display. Then you can get back in, unplug the sensor, and click the left button to turn it back on. Press the eject button to close the deck.

Voila! You'll prolly wanna turn the sub back up afterwards.

Don't forget you can turn off the internal amp if you are not using it to power any speakers. You can get to this the same way as changing the illumination by having the unit off and holding the right knob in.

you can use a computer mic, positioning might be a "pita" but it'll work.
