Ok, I'd like specifics on how to tune the car. I have everything set up, just have to swap out the focals for the hertz when they get here next week.
I'll have a dmm, computer, and mic.
1/ how loud/low should the pink noise be when I'm eqing the car with the mic. Since individual freq response will be different at different spl, should I do this at mid volume, or average listening volume.
2/ do I need individual freq tones if I'm using pink noise overall? If so, why?
3/ do I tune/eq each speaker individually, front and back individually, all speakers minus sub, or all speakers and sub together?
4/ besides this question seemingly dumb, should my main eq and t/a be with the mic at the center console or at the drivers head rest?
5/ my sub is in the trunk, should I point it up, towards the seat, or towards the back? I'm looking for a tight hit. I kind of doubt it, but does it make any kind of difference?
6/ my front stage I'm cutting at around 150-250hz, I don't know yet, how much of a difference is the factory 18G vs upgrading to 16G wire? And please don't just regurgitate "it'll make a huge difference", "it will sound better", "you need to do it". What are discernible and audible difference? Will the highs sound brittle, will it distort, will it crack, will bass (if I was to use it) not punch through? It's running 8 to 10 ft. (I just can't imagine a discernible difference)
