JBL MS-8 Digital Sound Processor

MS-8 The JBL® MS-8 dramatically improves the sound in any vehicle with an existing audio system. It’s got the power of a digital signal processor (DSP) to optimize audio signals and your car’s listening space, no matter what kind of car it is. Logic 7® matrix processing, a 31-band equalizer, user presets and precision active crossovers are but a fraction of the unit’s features. Onboard power allows direct connection for existing speakers, while pre-amp outputs offer comprehensive system expansion. Whatever your system configuration, no other car audio digital signal processor does what this one can do. It’s a true solution.

The JBL MS-8 handles all the necessary tasks for dramatically improving the sound in any vehicle with an audio system. It’s got the power of a digital signal processor (DSP) engine to optimize the signals and settings for any in-vehicle listening environment, whether new or old. Logic 7 matrix processing elevates the listening experience of any two-channel source material, and onboard power allows direct connection to existing speakers.

Setting Car Audio For SQ

Step by step to get staging and imaging on your car audio
1. Choose a car with the contours of the dashboard of a wide and flat, as much as possible the type of cabin singles such as MPV or SUV (but by no means sedan not only challenge is greater). Useful to get the pillar to pillar width and depth of the dashboard is ideal for positioning and Angling is ideal.

2. Installing and setting in the installer is experienced and willing to work on this project carefully and are patient enough in a comprehensive setting.

3. Plug the well silencer on the ground floor, doors, ceilings, hood, including the fender and dashboard. Do this carefully so that road noise, engine noise and mechanical noise can be reduced as low as possible

4. Choose Head Units, Power, Speakers including processor that has a distortion and noise as small as possible so that the outcome more predictable.

5. Often audition live concert and CD recording livenya use as a comparison

6. Speaker Placement, plug the speaker midbass, midrange and tweeter at the adjacent position and try to have a different path length thin difference between left and right speakers. Some cars I see use the kick panel to anticipate this. But then the ideal stage for high-mounted tweeters should be ear height. For that experiment is the key!

7. Setting tonal balance first do not rush to catch up staging and imaging (on this will be discussed in a special article about the tonal balance). Believe balanced tonal balance that will help produce an accurate staging and imaging. If you use the eq then use eq with independent channels with a lot of bands in order to solve the problem at a particular frequency either peak or dip

8. Crossover settings either passively or actively with a planned experiment, use the most optimal cut point based on the specifications of the speakers. Special attention shall be made on a different speaker brands and series.

9. Use the time alignment (if you use the processor) carefully, measure carefully and try focus on an even keel in the middle of the stage. Focus on sound balanced single seat in one position or two-seat listening position (dual listening position.

10. Write down all the process and repeat if there is a shortage in the process.

Also do not forget that the ideal staging and imaging is not impressed sound strange, phasey and artificial. He should have created a strong impression of the stage and the whole image. Well good luck, good luck!

Simple Car Audio Installation Schematic

Simple Car Audio Installation Schematic
If you wanna install a simple car audio system, you can do it yourself by follow this schematic. It's a simple installation car audio system. You can use low-end device. I think  it can made a good sound with cheap price. But you can use high-end device like power-amplifier from JBL ,  head unit from Alpine, etc.
