It Works Exactly As Intended
I have been a very spoiled audiophile in my life. I know what sound should "sound" like. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a way to bring a true audiophile- grade sound to my mobile listening experience. Until now. This equipment helped me get as close to the sound I wanted in my automobile like nothing else ever has. It is very, very good with all the bass I could ever ask for. It is an odd quirk of software that one needs to back off a bit on the subwoofer gain during measuring and then have to adjust the gain upwards afterwards in order to balance the system. It is also peculiar that one must back off on the high frequency gains ever so slightly after measurement because it will end up a tad too bright. I don't know why the unit can't set those gains appropriately, but that is a small matter. When set up properly during measuring, it gets everything else right and that's all that mattered to me in the end. Other than that, it is a shame that Alpine provided such poor documentation for this spectacular equipment. A comprehensive how-to guide is only available by reading through countless user forums. Anyways, only by utilizing this equipment was I able to approach a hi-fidelity listening experience in my car. I had always had to settle with sonic compromises that drove me nuts. Now I can just go down the road and listen to the music without being distracted by the fact that there are offending frequency anomalies.
