  1. About Android Auto Mirroring, CarPlay has been working fine but until Apple finally is happy to include other third-party navigation (rumoured end 2018), Apple map is crap - it's bringing me to timbuktu most of the time.. Recently trying to connect the HU with Mi5 but have not been successful. For those successfully using the mirroring, 1. What's the phone model please ? 2. To establish the connection the first time, do you need a USB cable to port 2 ? The manual doesn't say there's a need for a cable - just need to establish BT connection first. 3. Was a second USB cable included in the original package ? Thanks.
  2. Anyone with experience of 2" full range speakers? Audiobank, Sound stream, Omni Beyond, Debezt, Caewales, Enzonic, VF, Music Hawk, Audiobank,
  3. Any recommended shop that helps to install and link DVB-T2 HD Mobile Digital TV Tuner to existing In-Car entertainment system with LCD screen?

    Upgrade of ICE

    I just transfer my Ice to my new car. The installer mention that my Dego speakers going to up lorry soon. Any recommendation of speakers ? Should I go 3 way active ? Currently is 2 way active with 8850 HU. Steg 4 channel and Rockford 2 ch amp . Using Alpine sound processor and with varadium rainbow sub.soundproof both front and back door . Rear door with coxial speakers Thinking of either upgrade to 3 way and change sub to active sub or just change a better 2 way component speakers. Any recommendation ? If change to 3 way , budget for speakers and active sub about 1k Or change 2 way comp speaker budget at $500
  6. hi, just installed an active sub below my seat. than i realised that my front speakers are too weak to be blasted hard becos they are stock. so i went to upgrade the stock speakers to hertz speakers. after this, i was told that my stock head player has no power to drive my expensive front speakers to the optimal performance. and now, looking around for a amp to power up. after spending so much $$$ and time on all these upgrading, all we wanted now is to enjoy the music with good quality sound. so what media do you all use to play your music? is the SQ from a MP3 good enough? where can we get high quality music CD? TIA

  10. As suggested, what are the best pickup lines you would use to break the ice with a potential date. Asking for errr... friend.
  11. Has anybody tried connecting a PC stick to their car's hdmi port and used it? Curious about this and if it works means can have a mobile computer on board that can run Google maps and some other functions.
  12. I am unsure why the previous thread about the Pioneer AVH-X8750BT was removed. Starting another one. Question: Does AVH-X8750BT come with HDMI cable? What's come with the box?

  14. Hi everyone, As above, want to know how to qualify used component speaker is good condition to buy? I come across a demo speaker on sales, is pretty good high end speaker, feel like buying but I saw two small finger press on the cone, guess is demo speaker ppl hand like to touch touch. The price of the speaker is 500 plus, demo set sell at $400. Does it mean the speaker is gone case? The press is not deep in just like a mark on the cone. I wonder is this condition consider spoilt? Regards
  15. Hi, Does any bros used Brax speakers before ? Thinking of getting the matrix speakers. Wondering how's the sound

    ICE FB Group

    Hi guys, Any nice and active FB group to join to expand my ICE exposure here? The heat here is like a bit low. TIA
  18. Dear sifus, I know it can be a hassle to explain everything to a newbie in ICE. I do enjoy listening to good music at home and on my digital player. So can appreciate good music but just new to ICE. I would like advice on what should i do or get. I would like to do everything at once. Music i listen to - Vocals - Instrumental - Rock/concert sometimes Medias i listen to: - CDs - Digital lossless formats My car - Toyota Vellfire (has 2 front speaker locations and 1 rear speaker location for each side of the car) Items i think i need to change (correct me if i'm wrong) - change stock HU - change Front speakers with Component for tweeters - change Rear speakers to coaxial? - Add subwoofer - Add amplifier - Do soundproofing I'm not very particular as i know i'm listening in a car. And at most during weekdays spending about 1-1.5hrs in total in the car, weekends should be more. But i would appreciate some good music to listen to for the drives. Budget: $3k max? Thx for assistance.
  19. If your are extremely pleased with your ICE upgrade done, please recommend your installer here, and the work done. Please keep this constructive and factual, for the benefit of others considering their options. Do share what did you get done to your ride? What components did you change? What has improved? So, please only those with positive experience need share here. Thanks.
  20. Stage 1 Gonna start an audio system upgrade on Qashqai J11 In many occasion, the first to upgrade a car stereo is the speaker, head unit and addition amp. Often sound isolation or acoustic treatment is being left out in the equation. There are 4 main things to consider in car audio. 1. Speakers. 2. Amplification. 3. Source.(head unit). 4. Acoustic treatment.(soundproofing). http://www.ebay.co.uk/gds/Vehicle-Car-soundproofing-deadening-Engineers-view-/10000000176936757/g.html Personally, I feel that Acoustic treatment is the most important as it form the frame work or foundation resonant frequency of the car itself. If Acoustic treatment were to be in the last stage, there is a possibility of retuning the system again. (dismantle of parts, cover, speaker etc .) Love hate relation with vibration Vibration we love How do speakers work? http://www.physics.org/article-questions.asp?id=54 The electromagnet is attached to a cone made of a flexible material such as paper or plastic which amplifies these vibrations, pumping sound waves into the surrounding air and towards your ears. Vibration we hate As the speakers are generating these musical frequency, its also generated vibration within the door panels chamber. Often these frequency are trapped within the door chamber and causes crosstalk of frequency. Not forgetting that vibration from the car itself during moving off. As a result, some frequency are loss and some are amplify. That why we often hear the ugly sound of bass banging onto the wall of the inner panel. As much of the frequency(force) is being reflected back. In addition , other lose frequency. Solution Method 1 Weight the car down. By adding enough weight we can reduce the vibration of moving parts. However, efficiency suffer as more horsepower is require to move the car. Bad fuel consumption. Method 2 dampening material http://www.crutchfield.com/learn/learningcenter/car/vibration.html Vibration dampeners and noise deadeners can improve the sound of your vehicle by lowering the amount of ambient noise when you drive. Here are a few ways how: Speaker grilles tend to resonate and buzz, road and engine noise can come through the firewall and floor, and a door panel missing a rivet can vibrate noisily. Noise deadeners can help reduce these annoyances. Just using an inexpensive door kit can make your speakers sound better by damping the resonance around the speaker area. If your vehicle has a lot of ambient noise, applying a vibration damper can give you a quieter, more relaxing ride. Method 3 Acoustic Insulation 3M Thinsulate Acoustic Insulation is a cavity filling solution for automotive sound insulation applications. Compressible, lightweight and conformable, this product can be readily processed by conventional techniques such as die-cutting, heat sealing and ultrasonically bonding High performance and low density making them ideal for mass reduction applications Each method has it pros and cons Most convention and common is method 2. However, I decided to go for the 3M thinsulate as it should be the most elastomeric materials (An elastomer is a polymer with viscoelasticity (having both viscosity and elasticity) and very weak inter-molecular forces, generally having low Young's modulus and high failure strain compared with other materials.) also being lighter of the 3 and easier to work with. It just like going to the boxing ring with mike Tyson and you gonna tired him out by draining his energy by all those empty punch being throw at you. A empty punch is more tiring then a punch which land on the opponent. UNDERSTANDING DAMPING TECHNIQUES FOR NOISE AND VIBRATION CONTROL http://www.earsc.com/HOME/engineering/TechnicalWhitePapers/UnderstandingDamping/index.asp?SID=62 Sound test Please dont ask the wife or girlfriend for feedback. They always reply : NO different , why waste the money. But to ours Trained ear it really make a different.. Day and night.. After 3 installation on Qashqai I m totally convinces it works. All the cymbals sound like crystal bells All the bass sound more beefy Mid all around.. no more messy sound Songs Tested Rebecca Pidgeon No rattle on the door panels / vocal just flow into your face Carpenter It going to take some times - Sweet voices of Karen just feeling so lushy full / Feel like there a drum set right infront of me / All the instrument sound at the right volume. Megadeth Dawn Patrol ( the ultimate Drum and bass ) My ear just bleed. However, dont expect the 3m Thinsulate to perform magic an turn the car to total isolation from the outside. Nevertheless, it a good platform to start with Stay tune for stage 2 ....

  23. Hi all, Any compact and good subwoofer to intro? Current setup is helix front and back speaker with Rainbow beat amp. The current sound is very good, but somehow rather lack of bass and bom bom feeling.
  24. Noticed quite a lot of installer carrying the Micro-Precision speakers. Due to budget constraints,for their range of speakers I can only look for the 3-series. Has any user installed this 3-series speakers and has any feedback on the speakers? Any other speakers would you recommend within the price range of the Micro Precision 3-Series?
  25. I have bought 2 Focal amplifiers FP4.75 & FP1.800, and a 13" Focal subwoofer ten years ago. Due to COE law, I am force to get rid of my nicely maintained car and got to transfer these audio component to my new ride. These Focal amplifiers were much sought after during ten years ago. After a decade, I am surprise they still sound decent. The unfortunate thing is that my new car uses a different speakers size of 4" while my previous car uses 6.5" speakers, so I ended up buying a new pair of speakers for my front doors. I was offered to choose either Focal plug n play or K2 Power. The verdict is clear as there isn't much difference in price and so I decided on K2 Power. I had car audio installation from a small shop(have many trophies) with frequent customers at cheaper price, but this time I went to a slightly reputable bigger audio shop(also have many trophies) with more expensive cars at their workshop and charge a higher price. Total items & installation price can be difference of more than $100++. So, did I pay more for better tuning advise, workmanship, service? A sensitive topic with an easy answer. Tuning advise is depend on how newbie the customer is. To a newbie, whatever shit the installer says, the customer will agree as he/she has already parted few thousands dollar to buy happiness. To a customer to who has been burned his/her pocket with ICE before, the installer with discuss and give options on sound tuning, which is a rather accessible knowledge from internet these days. In fact, most customers ended readjusting their bass level after the installer knowledgeable tuning. As for service, most shops are customer service oriented these days. In car audio competition, judges not only focus on sound but also weight in heavily on presentation and installation. So if you think a good workmanship is worth the extra on your expensive car, then you should pay the difference.
