When I was running on XP, I had no problem using the utility to modify the power supply parameters. Now that I'm on Windows 7, it shows up as unknown device and I can't connect to it. Any ideas?

Any one ever use one of these ? - http://www.crutchfield.com/g_331950/....html?tp=61662 From my understanding it can help boost the RCA's signal. Not sure if its messing with on my system or not yet.

CT scan of a crashed car Computed tomography (CT) scanners are great for diagnosing problems in people, but what about cars? The Fraunhofer Development Center is using the biggest CT scanner it can find to analyze wrecked cars. Researchers hope to gain some insight into how individual components react under the forces of a collision. Fraunhofer says a CT provides analysts with a three-dimensional view of the wreckage, without disturbing anything. That sounds good, but how do you fit a car in a CT scanner? Apparently, you just get a bigger scanner. Fraunhofer is building a giant scanner that it says can be used for cars, as well as to detect damage to airplane wings and to scan the contents of shipping containers. Here's how Fraunhofer says it will work. A crashed car is hoisted onto a turntable. As it turns, two X-ray detectors on either side scan it, and a computer merges the multiple images generated into a whole, three-dimensional CT scan. The giant scanner has a resolution of 0.8 mm, but its designers hope to get it down to 0.4 mm. The scans could—theoretically—allow crash investigators to track the weakening or failure of specific parts across an entire car, showing which where forces were directed and how each part of a car's structure reacted. The question is: will the giant scanners actually fit in any existing crash test labs?

Hi Guys, I'm a newb to car audio/carputing but I'm in the process of planning my carputer installation and need some advice. I'm looking at getting the Fusion CP-AS1080 Slimline Amp/Sub combo as it's the best one that suits my needs and I just need something that sounds decent, here's a link so you know what I mean when I say combo: http://www.fusionelectronics.com/car...tive-Subwoofer And the Manual just in case: http://www.fusionelectronics.com/con...80_manual1.pdf I'll just be hooking up to an old laptop via 3.5mm jack but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to hook up the front and rear speakers to this amp. It's a 4/1 channel amp so it should be able to run them correct? I may be completely wrong in thinking you can hook them up so if I am then please point me in the right direction. Thanks guys, your help is always greatly appreciated ;).
