I've installed my first HU with time delay: HU-Eclipse CD7200 mk II

"Regular Music" is proving to be challanging to tune with.
I'm looking for advice on dowloadable test tracks, or test CD's to have better tools to check alignment with.

Advice?

This where I got it on my first evening of "trying to figure out how to do it right":
I'm in a 4-door SUV with front and rear door speakers, and a sub behind the rear seat.
I started with the Sub (farthest) at zero time delay, but then I added "-1.0msec" to everything so I could have the flexibily to move the Sub both up and down because my unit does not adjust beyond zero.

(each of these numbers have "-1.0msec" added to them for flexibility with the sub while I'm experimenting & learning)

-5.0msec, Front Left (Front seperate components near front edge of door)
-2.1msec, Front Right
-5.4msec, Rear Left (Rear 6.5" triaxial, at lower front of door)
-1.1msec, Rear Right
-2.2msec, Sub (behind second row seats)
(I started with the Sub at 1.0, but then I "played" with moving it around a bit, and ended up here. I'll probably keep checking on this)

See if you can find the Focal demo disks. Disk 2 is a "tools" CD with pink noise and other stuff. There are 6 disks total. That's a crap ton of reference material. They were on MegaUpload for free but I heard a rumor that that site was down?

Why are you delaying every speaker in the car? There should be at least one with no delay. Lol.

Try Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon" a great CD for testing the accoustic abilities of your system....

Thanks, I have that one... I'll give it a try (I'm originally from Lafayette, LA ... I have to import spices to this tasteless place..... THEY DON'T SEASON THEIR FRIED FISH HERE! OMG!)
Thanks for the other advice guys... I'll search for the stuff you mentioned.
