A series of test tones and sine sweeps.

Initial post, for questions:

http://caraudioforum.com/showthread.php?t=319138

Please don't fill this thread with questions, just use the linked thread, thanks.

I made this series of test tones and sine sweeps to help a member set up his system. I figured since I went to the trouble of packaging these and uploading them, I would share these with everyone. These will work great for setting up your system, adjusting crossover points, setting EQs, and determining how flat the system really is (using the final series of sweeps)... oh yeah, and just for showing off, if you so choose . All are unclipped 1:1 signals. I have enclosed the track list in a wordpad file, and I will include it here for you to determine if this set is for you.

This is saved on rapidshare, uncompressed in .wav format. It is under 100mb so you do not need a premium account to download it. DO NOT COMPRESS THIS FILE TO AN MP3!!! You may convert this to any lossless format, including, but not limited to .flac, .ape, and .wmp. Compressing these tones will result in incorrect settings, as lossy formats will not maintain all the required information. If you are not sure what formats can and can't be used, please ask here or PM me directly.

I take no responsibility for you misusing these tones and damaging your speaker system. If you have any questions, ask. If you have any doubts, let a professional perform your system set up and tuning. These tones may cause catastrophic speaker failure if misused, and they can cause permanent hearing loss.

MP3s, how and why they affect our systems, and system choices

Distortion. Even and odd order, high and low level.
