    What settings should I use on my new HU?

    So I just got this new pioneer and to be honest I don't know much about these slope options. Take a look at the pics and tell me if you know what would be a decent set up in general. I have a pioneer avh-x490bs HU, and infinity speakers 6.6" all around, the sub is a single 10" JL in a ported box. Any tips would be appreciated.

    If you don't have a RTA to measure you have to use your ears. Every install is different.

    It should never change once it's good. It's not song dependent. Play stuff you really know on a set of headphones. Try to make the car sound the same. You are on the right track.

    I'll keep tweaking, I had a kenwood in here and I'm trying to make it sound like the kenwood , I'll either ggnit or get used to it.
