      Tracks to Test your ICE !!

      Well I know all of you guys love your ICE and for guys like me who are deciding on ICE or are going to fit it,, Here are some tracks to test your ICE with after fitting it,
      Now there are no hard fast rules for it, Best thing would be to test it with the tracks you love, but there are few tracks which I always carry around with me when I install or go audio equipment shopping,

      Sure there are certain files you can download on the net, like 30Hz sine and stuff but these wont show the dynamic response of the decoder chip,DAC,OP-AMP's and the final Amp..These are actual songs which are designed by whacky artists which streach out the limits of most equipment and are also enjoyable to listen to..

      These tracks at higher volumes if generate signs of distortion (definitely will if system is not upto mark) , run these tracks from a low level volume to the highest possible...

      Now I know some of you would already be having this tracks (list is pretty general) but I insist you download HQ tracks 320Kbps MP3 or atleast 192Kbps better still if you rip from a AUDIO CITY..

      Now guys please pay for these tracks you download cos no money no artists no tracks..this list continues to constitute only of new songs, easy for you to download and good to hear too..

      The list (updated as I find more) :
      Beautiful - Akon (great overall dynamics)
      I put on for My city - Young Jeezy (lowest possible output by subwoofer)
      I Wanna love you - Akon (Sustainable output by sub)
      Hart as hell ft.Akon - UGK (sub killer , speaker killer, killed 4 speakers at a poor chaps house at high volume).
      Is It love - iiO (sustained dynamics, mid bass and lower foundation, dynamic surround)
      I'am Yours - Jason Maraz (mid bass , all 4 speakers, good for checking air leaks in cabinets)
      American Idiot - Greenday (mid bass , high pitch dynamics)
      Designer Skyline - Owl City (if your system is able to play this without silbilance at high volume levels you just passed the test, top dynamics , tweeters)
      Fly By II - Blue (voice dynamics, surround chorus , lowbass)
      to be updated....
      Glow - Madcon (vocal dynamics, surround system , Sub , high pitch response)

      I'd still say a proper "Audio CD" is the best.
      Hotel California does't some as good as it sounds on a plain "old" Audio CD.

      There are some CD's with multiple songs used in SPL competition.
      Some ICE crazy guys will have them
      Rabid Dog Club - bite first, bark later

      1997 - Yamaha RxZ
      2003 - 2003 OHC vtec (AKA The Boat) - Blackworked ;) - Sold
      2012 - Schwinn Frontier Elite
      2012 - KTM Duke 200
      2016 - Honda City VX(o) BL - Diesel (AKA Diesel Boat)

      Dinesh, PM me your mail ID. I will mail you some Boston Acoustics bass test tracks that are guaranteed to fry your sub if you are not careful. Ever heard a 20 or 30 Hz tone? It will give you goosebumps.

      Heavy metal is still the best genre to test mid bass. Especially on tracks that feature double bass drum pedals. That will let you know how quick your woofer is.

      Yeah, this track list comes close to the competition CDS , But this ain't for SPL this is for final check of system before driving out .. and yeah nothing beats audio cd , and thanx to point out hotel california, just went out of my mind..

      Hotel California - The Eagles ( surround , high pitch dynamics ,vocal ordinance)..

      +1 : Audio Cds are the best source to judge.
      and a track to test the set-up would be Santana's 'Maria...Maria' -not a new song but still consists almost all variations of frequencies.

      taste of everyone varies..some say hotel california , some say santana's maria maria... but these really don't really test the limit of your equipment..hotel california if a orig audio cd used can be used to judge SNR, the sound stage.. but if any other copy...seems to just kill it..
      the tracks in above list..just download one..especially the ones in middle of the list..crank up the volume and you shall definitely hear weaknesses of your systems..

      Try Paula Abdul's Rush Rush to check the vocals. Will put up my list in a bit. But this is one song I love listening to on a good SQ setup.
