my aeroplane sound will most probably be my RCA's..

hmm.. will leave the aeroplane sound since it's not really that loud..
only when playing really really low volume then only can hear :(

crank the volume up then i wont listen to anything already.. wahahah

pocket rocket...it might be ur amp grounding wire...should be less than 1meter n dun go near 2 rca cable...tat stupid sound damn annoying 1 lah...

artnet...
yes...the tweeters is the most speacial thing 4 valaraine...if u compare 2 high end stuff...then u will c tat they also cut the tweeter freq lower...

i think its no prob 2 feed the tweeter even if 100wattRMS loh....provided tat tuned properly
i think if i feed my 6.5" wit 100wattRMS the mid bass sure kau kau :P

Not only the tweeter is special, but also the way we optimised and set the component speakers as a complete package. Therefore we don't sell any piece seperately. Because you won't be getting the best out of each component.

i think they will think so...

no comment recieve from anyone.

i myself feel helix blue vocal is loud. the mid bass
part is weak.

from wht i see... Valeraine is more advance, hahaha.
Helix blue is just like a normal two way speaker.

one more thing is that i only listen to this valeraine once.
and it is played using it's own CD i guess.
didn't test it with other CDs.
lots of CDs out there... i saw the HCCD. and my fren told
me there is more... SAC? bla bla bla...

Talking aabout test CDs, did you guys just mentioned a Valeraine test cd? Strange, coz my set didn't come with any... any kind souls can pinjam me burn, anyone? :P

I think you meant HDCD, but one would need a special player to reproduce the details, if we pop'em into normal HU, its gonna be treated just like your regular CDs

The Valeraine test cd project has been aborted. It requires a spl meter and following extra steps of tuning to make sure the level between drivers are properly matched. The reason is that spl meter is not common here and even some installers have problem following instructions in the quick installation manual.

The updated Quick Installation Guide will include some of the key steps used. Will be available with the 6.5" Set and in downloadable PDF format.

Hm... good price u've got there. Mine came as a complete set(except the bracket), but was pretty much brand new.

Hm... the player IS complicating :lol: The person who installed for me even thought i was bringing some kind of crazy shit.

Hm... don't bother about setting up radio channels(i didn't), coz u'll find yourself listening more to CDs than radio for sure :P

Hm... mine's not *that* sensitive, only one disc so far have some skipping problems, the rest are fine, most of my discs are CD-R burned from PC, only a couple of originals, the one that skipped was a CD-R, so... it was probably disc problem. Should save more and get original CDs already, don't later drive Ferrari but use celup tyres :lol:

Good buy on the DXZ-925, even if u had stock speakers, u definitely feel the difference ;)

Sorry about the messing up of the thread though, no valeraines, can't comment.

Er... munwai, too bad your setup now wired for 2 amps, i've got a pair of Sony ES amps ngam ngam for the valeraines, 50Wrms x 2 for tweets and 100Wrms x 2 for the mid, er... u want to try them? Probably need another power cable, the rest should be easy.

rest was ok.. no scratches..

i only have a bad experience in playing a damn new CDR ... IMATION summore... skip and got error sometimes...
rest was ok.. using black melody cdr and originals.. works fine so far :)

I know this will be so outdated since the last time I got involved with Avant Garde, still have the system though, planning to put it in again and my car will be the first car in Australia to be fitted with this? lol

By the way, has the company gone bankrupt or shut down or anything?

The last update on their website was dated like 2 years back! Any chance of getting my crossover upgraded with burrbrown chips, still?
