    well since you have stock speakers just run the deck off of normal mode. you have no reason to work it off advanced mode.

    I dunno about the SVC, i have mine at 1 right now.
    As for volume i think thats i up to you. I'd look into upgrading the speakers as well .

    Re: Help Tuning Eclipse 8445

    I currently have a 8445. Not sure why you'd have trouble tuning. There aren't many adjustments it can make (for a high-end HU).

    One thing's for sure -- the Eclipse owner's manuals are quite easily the most well-done manuals for any electronic component I have ever seen. You should take a flip through the few pages of tuning and see if that helps.

    Generally, you just plug in your vehicle type and it "decides" for you (alignment).

    X-over slopes and ranges are a little different. It selects a good one by default, but if you decide to adjust it, you're in luck 'cuz the low pass and high-pass are adjusted together (blech! for tweakers but yay for someone who doesn't want to fiddle too much).

    As for SRS and ANY other digitally-enhanced sound garbage it's capable of mutilating your music with, I found that, all are horribly unnatural sounding and exaggerated. Leave them off.

    After about an hour of initial tuning (20 minutes if you're familiar with the unit), you should, no joke, have one of the nicest sounding decks on the market there.

    Re: Help Tuning Eclipse 8445

    no no, all that works fine just for the display colors like where u can customize it..like choose the color scheme such as green, blue, red all solid colors or blue/amber, or red/blue, etc... only the solid colors show up like green,blue,red.. it wont mix the lighting anymore..
