    I can't speak for anyone else but I have absolutely no idea what you are on about, I'm not sure what you're asking, and I'm not sure what your actual problem is.

    Are you just saying you don't like your head unit settings? and whats with all the other stuff about lorries and escorts and walnut dashes you've posted in this thread?

    try typing it all again... with punctuation... and not all one long post.

    You might want to wait a bit before you get impatient and post again as well a lot of people are at Billing this weekend so won't be on here until sunday night at the earliest

    I had mk1 Escort 1300gt. It was hand-painted in Black, and I fitted alloy wheels. I replaced both front floorpans. I took the head off, polished and ported it put a stainless steel exhaust on - can't remember what exhaust it was though as it was 20 years ago!! It had a tape player too A bit of a change from my current car which is an Astra.

    Whilst I think about it, can you tell me how to upload pics onto here so I can post pics of my cars?

    Going back to my escort, my Dad tuned it for me and it was pretty rapid At 17 however, I got a bit friendly with a lamp post and totalled it (I was only 17 at the time, now I'm 37 with 20 Years driving experience )

    I currently hold my Class 2 driving license and drive a 7.5 tonne truck. I like my lorries, 170bhp In A Works Wagon My last truck had 350bhp (Mercedes Actros - 38ft rigid) oh and a sexy walnut dash, eps, leccy sunroof/windows etc... All the mod cons I also fitted a laptop on the dash connected to the stereo... I had many a can filled night in that vehicle (a real home from home - curtains, heating, the lot) After 13 Years however, I have now left my job.

    I'm not too good with ICE really, you wouldn't believe how difficult it was fitting speakers to the rear shelf of my Escort


    Damn that was hard-going... all i could think of was

    hope it helps you get the response you're after

    have you tried the settings on the amplifier? it may be that you've got the filter selected on high or low pass, or the gain maybe too low. after that you just have to trundle through the head unit settings making sure none of the high or low pass filters are switched on, and making sure the EQ is set correctly. not had one of those hu's before but like most others its just about playing with it!
