Premium Automotive Sound Treatment Solutions

Remote DSP Tuning Service

$500.00$850.00

Note: Due to growing to an audience that isn’t very familiar with me, my businesses, or my schedule, I am going to make this clear right here. If you order this service, there is up to a 7-day wait until our schedules align. ResoNix is not my primary focus during normal business hours. I am usually free most weeknights after 8pm est, Friday mornings, and Sundays. If we do not schedule a date right away, please do not panic. My other business can get very busy at times and it gets a bit difficult to juggle both. I am always more than okay to receive check in emails/texts though. Also, please note that if we schedule a date, things come up. If I have to reschedule, please accept that I do not sit in front of the computer all day running ResoNix. Thank you.

 

Hey everyone, Nick Apicella of ResoNix Sound Solutions here, the guy who started this whole remote tuning thing, and I’m back offering this service for the foreseeable future. This is a great service for those that aren’t confident that they are getting the most out of their system from either their own tune, or even their installer’s tune. This is also great for those that maybe need a visualization of how to go about tuning their system and take it on themselves in the future.

How It Works

Believe it or not, it’s very simple. I remotely access your computer via TeamViewer, a free software, while we are connected to your DSP. You take measurements with the files I give you while I control everything. I do all of the muting, unmuting, eq, levels, crossovers, etc. The only thing you need to do is sit in the car, hold and move the microphone (no, we don’t do that silly, unreliable, and lackluster way of sticking it in the headrest), and hit play/pause. Once all measurements and adjustments are done, we go through verification and adjustment by ear. This is a process that I have in which we use certain tracks to verify tonality, staging, and imaging and make adjustments from there. This is the step where we verify the measurements were giving us all of the info we need, and fine-tune to your preferences. From here, you listen to your music to verify it’s what you are looking for. From there, we take a break and let your ears rest, then come back for more listening and verification and adjustment if necessary. I also give you 2 weeks to compile your thoughts to make adjustments after having some time with it. We can dial it in to your liking with a follow-up based on your thoughts up to those two weeks.

When you place an order, we will reach out via phone (make sure you put your actual phone number in the checkout) and will do a quick consultation and set up a day and time to have the service performed.

 

What You Need

. A decent laptop that isn’t sluggish (windows highly preferred). I will not work with laptops that are slow as it just isn’t possible. Macs add a layer of difficulty to the process, but I can make it work if you have it set up correctly.

. Decent wifi where your vehicle sits. Again, I will not work with slow internet as it makes the process nearly impossible. This is typically an easy process, but slow laptops/internet make this process nearly impossible.

. A phone purely for communication during the process

. Another way to play these test files other than your phone, either a second phone, a usb stick, a iPad, etc. We will need to be on the phone the whole time while doing this, so you will need another source to play these test files from.

. A USB measurement microphone (I recommend the MiniDSP Umik-2, or Umik-1 if on a budget)

. Room EQ Wizard version 5.20 or newer and TeamViewer non-commercial version downloaded onto the aforementioned laptop (both free). I’d prefer if you have REW functioning and set up before we start

. A tape measure

. The ability to connect to your DSP from your drivers seat (preferably via USB as wireless connections tend to be problematic)

. The ability to take the simplest of instructions and answer simple questions without telling me your life story (I hate that I have to say this, but the more we stay focused, the better and easier this process goes)

. And most importantly, an install that is ACTUALLY completed and ready to be tuned. I will be asking many questions regarding your install, and sometimes even photos before starting. If your install is not ready, I will not tune it until it is in fact ready.

Note: PLEASE make sure your microphone and tuning software setup actually works before we do this. I really cannot stress this enough. The amount of tunes I log into and something in their measurement or car audio system that doesn’t work is way too high. If you need help with instructions on this, let me know. 

 

 

What Makes Our Service Different

Frankly, the level of experience. I am up to over 400 full tunes done in person, and another 100+ done remotely. I am very experienced in being able to get the most out of any car audio system. I am also not like the other guys who will sit there and do the bare bones adjustments with incorrect measurements. We also have our own process where we train you to listen for certain cues by ear which is that “10 percent” that everyone always talks about and make further adjustments from there. We also allow you to request adjustments for up to 2 weeks after the initial tune is completed.

 

Speaking of payment..

We charge a base price of $500. This is for a single-seat tune. We do not offer two-seat tunes remotely.
Now to be very blunt and upfront… Yes, this is more expensive than the “other guys”. No, I don’t care. No, I will not adjust my prices. Most of these “other guys” are previous customers of mine who watched me do a tune once. This is why you see some people who are saying “I have tried 4 other guys before I was finally happy with a remote tune”. This is exactly why. My tuning experience and understanding of car audio systems as a whole separates me from the rest. This service will still make the largest difference and most likely still be one of the cheapest parts of your system.

This base price includes the tuning of Audiotec Fischer (Helix/Brax/Match), MiniDSP, and Dayton DSP’s. There are extra charges for other processors based on how difficult they make it to complete a tune, especially remotely. If you do not see your processor on the list, please send us an email.

 

A couple more things to know..

We can also help with OEM Integration. If you are going high-level in from an OEM head unit or amplifier, we can also get your input squared away. This may cost extra. Some OEM systems are easy to integrate into. Others are… not. I am familiar with most, so this can most likely be figured out beforehand, and I may even have a tune file for the inputs already based off one of the builds we have done.

Liability: There is one major limitation to remote tuning. That is having someone experienced such as myself sitting there and listening to what is coming out of those speakers. ResoNix Sound Solutions will NOT be held liable for any blown speakers during, or after tuning. This has never once been a problem, but who knows.

Heads up, this is not a service that is applicable to those with processors that use only an App to tune the device. It needs to have a desktop software. If you do not have a processor selected and are still selecting and considering this service, I’d 100% prefer if you have an Audiotec Fischer DSP. I know that the best end results will be had with a Helix, Brax, or Match processor.

 

Please note that there is a maximum time limit on the process of 2.5 hours. If the installation is correct and nothing is wrong and you are truly ready, there is no chance of going over these times and you will have nothing to worry about. Any hour extra is $200/hr.
