A series of test tones for you to download.

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.

I am also adding a set of pink noise tracks, as requested by horsemanwill. It will be the second download link. I also just added a tutorial with images in the third link below to help you extract and unpack the .rar files to a standard .wav folder and files.

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.

Listen for distortion. It's quite audible.

I got a PM asking about unloading it. Just use this free program.

http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR/3000...-10007677.html

Be sure when you install it you only associate .rar files for unpacking. Then, you don't even need to open the program, just select the file you want to unpack, and unpack it wherever you choose.

They can be used for various things. Setting gains, being the most common. They are a necessity if using an o-scope to gainset. They can be used to figure crossover points at the amp, or wherever you have a continuously variable crossover. They can be used to set EQ's, as you can adjust intensity at specific frequency points (followed up with the sine sweeps I included, you can check for a flat response). These can also be used to determine where specific phasing issues may be presenting themselves. You can find the resonant frequency of your vehicle to show off for your friends, or to compete... There are dozens of ways we can use test tones in an audio system, for set up, evaluation, and just plain showing off .
