so my subs are way in the back of my trunk , and the rear deck holes are open , the bass enters through these holes. My bass seems a bit off delay wise. Should i be calculating the distance from the holes or from the subs themselves?

well whatever you do dont buy the USB adapter thing for it. I seen numerous reviews that say it is the worst thing alpine has ever made. does not work for ****.

i dont kno how alpines works but on the eclipse i usually do it by ear....i bring t out and try to have it feel like its coming from the head rests in the front

dont like far back bass but its all by ear

What are you guys talking about exactly, I'm confused haha

To help with the time aligment, you are going to measure distance from sub to what? and for why? and if so, you were suggested to move the box around by buck and imtjnotu?

The alpine 9855 is an active capable deck and that is one of the controls...

So, what and why is he calculating ha (distance?!, if so why?/ distance from speakers to back of rear deck holes, deck holes to head rest?)

Distance to the listener from all the speakers...

quick and easy way is it controls how the sound gets to u....i have my TA set to where theres no real left and right it sounds like it all comes from the dash and forward....

Im just curious but are your several periods and indication of condescension? whats the wire diagram from the alpine hu ----> active amp/ eq unit -----> components

Idk I guess that my way of leaving it open for more questioning or debate hahaha... You actually run 3 rcas one for sub (sub channel) one for front outs (produces jst highs in 3 way mode for tweets) the one for rear outs (for mids) then to each amp the wire each mid and tweet to its own channel...

You can mess with the phase as well.

yeah , i have my tweets wired out of phase from the midrange , that way the overlapping frequencies are cancelled out.

Your midbass wiring may be why its a little off. I have an explorer and my subs are as far back as I can get them, pointing upwards, and I have TA, and I don't notice a difference in delay. With the TA it just sounds a little sharper to me.
