Has anyone tried this with the Stereo?

If you hold the Load or eject button and press the other one while holding it, you get some weird thing that comes up. If you press the same button a few more times, it goes through a cycle. I forget what it said, as I am not in front of my Jeep now...but I wonder what it means. Would love to know out of curiosity. I hope this isn't some in the manual already...although I would doubt it. And yes, I was bored while waiting for someone in my car and this is what I do...press buttons.

Without doing it myself, my first guess would be it it showing the Sirius ESN number.

Were you able to select between thos 3 choices?

I wonder if this is the settings for the soundbar speakers being "clipped", or not recieving the full signal in other words. I know the soundbar speakers do not recieve the full signal from the head unit (or the amp on the 6disc model).

What did you actually do? You say hold the Load or Eject and press the other one. So... that is confusing since they are the same button. What was the other button? And was the key in the ignition, was radio on?

Help us out.

I just tried it.... doesn't seem to be any difference in the sound of the stereo. Any clues?

You have to have the six cd changer. It has seperate buttons for load and eject.

My guess would be some sort of clipping attenuator to protect the speakers if the volume is turned up too high - severe clipping (aka distortion) will damage your speakers, so I'm guessing that setting this would change the threshold at which it starts attenuating the signal. In other words, 3% would allow no more than 3% clipping (probably a bit too conservative), 10% would allow no more than 10% clipping (you can turn it up louder, but you will hear noticable clipping at high volumes), and off will let you turn up the volume as loud as you want (and possibly blow the carp out of your speakers, depending on how badly the amp clips).

Just a guess, but seems to make sense. I wonder if there's any other hidden options or setup modes.....hmmmm, I'm intrigued...
