Chrysler ‘s hot-selling 300 is a car that redefines what the American sedan can and should be, and its popularity is cutting a wide path in the marketplace. These were among the reasons we voted it our 2005 Car of the Year, which gets it an automatic invite into our one-year-test fleet–although we’d have probably wanted one anyway. As you’d expect, ours is a 300C Hemi, packing that all-important 340-horsepower, -liter, OHV V-8. Covered in Magnesium Pearl Coat (a rich color that looks dark green or charcoal gray, depending on the light), our newest tester is stately and stylish. The cabin is wrapped in luxurious Slate/Graystone leather. 300Cs are well-equipped, so our selection of options was minimal. We went for the Sound Group ($635), which includes an AM/FM/cassette/CD six-disc/MP3 radio with a Boston Acoustics seven-speaker/subwoofer combo powered by a 368-watt digital amplifier. To accompany the upgraded sound system, we added Sirius Satellite Radio, which includes one year of service, for $195. Our final option choice was a $950 power moonroof. With the $625 destination fee, the total came to $35,275. So far the only problem is getting the keys for a night in this always popular ride.
This mj chap clearly has no idea what he’s talking about! This is a great resource to give a starting point (and that’s all this can be), for setting up a drum mix. Take these pointers as a guide on what to listen for… most importantly for me though, is to listen to the FULL kit. It’s all well and good to EQ each mic individually with the drummer hitting his Toms or Snare again and again. But you MUST do this is relation to all the other drums… Get the drummer to play his full kit and then figure out what needs tweeking.
