im kinda up in the air right now... i am selling my car so all i have left to drive [besides my wifes suv] is my toyota truck... and im seriously contemplating running seperates up front [already installed] and midbass drivers in the rear, iow losing the rear surround. im putting a 10" sub in the back compartment for the jack/storage in a fiberglassed enclosure. i do have a double din slot for the headunit so i could easily put a LCD in there but no double din units come with a DVD player... but i can get the single DIN flip out screen and a single DIN dvd player from ALPINE which would take up both spaces... hmm, shoud i go surround? im thinking of the ALPINE digital time alignment piece as well, its makes everything sound so freaking tight in the truck i heard that alpine did.\

ahhh.. planning a car audio system. probably more fun than designing any other system. its where i listen to ALL my music.

I have been playing around with surround for a little while now. I have been recording classical sessions in surround for about a couple of years, though none of these mixes have been used for releases.

I also have been recording live sound for DVD. This has been mostly jazz. I love that "in the room" experience particularly with concert recordings for DVD. Like most of you here I am not convinced that for rock records it really is the thing, but I could see possibilities for certain releases. With movies I think it has made such a difference to the whole cinema experience.

Next month I have a session recording a comedian for a DVD release. He has a band so I am looking forward to doing this in surround. It is a pity that the format wars are still on, with the exception of DVD video it is difficult to know how to deliver product to the public. For my own demo's I have burnt the audio as a AC3 file to a DVD video and just added a couple of slides to picture.
