I am just about sold on this head unit, but have a few questions about it before taking the plunge:
-- When setting the time alignment, are you able to hear the "steps" as you adjust it? Or do you need to make your adjustment and then hit the pause/enter button to hear the new setting? For example, if you are adjusting for a certain speaker, can you hear each change immediately as you repeatedly hit the up/down buttons?
-- Same question as above, but for crossover frequency adjustment and level adjustment
-- For an active 2-way front stage and sub (no rear speakers) can you use standard mode and still have a bandpass filter for the front midbass speakers? It sounds like there is no high pass filter, forcing the midbass to play the subbass frequencies... If this is true, then can the unit be used in 4-way (multi) mode and use the "low" outputs for my midbass and the "high" for the tweeters (ignoring the "mid" outputs) and have a seamless transition between mid/tweets?
Basically I have 6 1/2" comps, and through lots of listening, have already determined that the best-sounding XO points in my car are:
Sub: 63Hz/18dB, Midbass: 63Hz/12dB to 800Hz/6dB, Tweeters 1600Hz/6dB and up (tweeters also have an on-amp 12dB HP filter@900Hz as a fail-safe).
Which mode (standard or multi) will best accomodate these settings? Thank you for taking the time to read through this post. The 9255 sounds like an amazing HU. I wish the convenience of mp3s were available tho...
