For any of you out there looking for someone to help you get your SQ set-up dialed in, give me a call.
I have been tuning SQ vehicles for personal use and competitions for over 15 years.
I am located in Corona, Ca
The tuning process can be a very complicated and daunting process. There is nothing worse than having thousands of dollars invested in a system that still doesn't sound good.
My approach to tuning is the following:
RTA each speaker individually to determine crossover points
Set up time correction between pairs first by measurement then fine tune by ear.
Determine crossover slopes by listening for phasing between driver pairs
Do rough cut equalization on left and right using an RTA
Fine adjustments on equalization using music and test tracks
Revisit crossover points based on tonal problems
Revisit time correction between speaker pairs and on sub
Adjust individual channel gains to fine tune center image alignment
Final re-check of tonality after all other adjustments have been made
The last 75% of the tuning is all done by ear.
Anyone who tells you that it can be done with an RTA is dead wrong.
You are welcome to be there while I do the work or drop the car off.
I currently tune for over 10 competitors in the area.
My cars and the cars of my customers have a long history of wins in SLAP, IASCA and MECA.
I am familiar with IASCA and MECA rule formats.
