System Integration Processor

Hey, newbie to the sight, was hoping to get some recommendations from some more experienced people.

Just purchased a 2006 Acura 3.2 TL

She is bare, nothing installed yet. I don't want to remove the head unit so I am trying to decide what System Integration Processor to go with. So far on the short list are the following.....

1. JBL MS-8
2. JL Cleansweep
3. Alpine PXE-H660

Started reading about the Audison Bit One, not familiar with Audison so maybe somebody could fill me in. Really confused at the moment, would appreciate any feedback.

The Bit One is a nice unit but I've read it has stability issues. For the price, it had better be rock solid. But the features are way cool!

The JL Audio Cleansweep is designed for your application exactly. Quality product.

The JBL MS-8 does everything the Cleansweep does and more. Similar to the Bit One but with more channels. It can take a 2ch signal and make a 5.1 or 7.1 surround if desired. Also T/A on up to 8 channels is nice for expansion later on.

Not sure what the Alpine has to offer.

T/A is time alignment - MS8 seems to be the logical choice for future expansion!

The bitone is for advanced users really, probably best to stay clear of it.

I wouldn't be installing it myself.....

Does that mean you think the Bitone is a better product?

I have never used bitone.1 but I have used similar.

Tuning something like this takes lots of time. Pro's can take weeks or months to get it right. I don't know how much time your installer will dedicate to tuning it...and is he really a pro at tuning?

MS8 will get 90% as close in 5 minutes as the best you could do with bitone.1 or other sofisticated tuning.

MS8 IMO is the best processor available right now. MS8 has tools (all automated) that processors like the bitone.1 don't have:specific types of filters and EQ and of course autotune.

Definately the best choice at the moment . It does *almost* everything a pro can do in only minutes !!! Just take a look at JBL website for simple and comprehensive videos about the MS-8.

The EISA thinks it's good enough for "2010-2011 Best Product of the Year" for the in-car electronics category.
The prestigious EISA Awards are chosen annually by panels representing nearly 50 of the most prominent photo, video, audio, home theater and mobile electronics magazines from over 18 European countries. [...] Members of the judging panel described the JBL MS-8 as “providing a realistic soundstage to listeners in any seat of the vehicle’ and called it ‘a sophisticated device for sophisticated vehicles.”
I've ordered mine but not received it yet, should be coming in any day now !!
