Re: Best sounding exhaust setup for XL883?
Well....I would say the RUSH slip on's have a nice sound and give some performance increase. I put them on my XL883 and now it sounds like a harley instead of a moped. They have a nice deep sound to them and have a good bark to them when you get on it, but at cruise tame down to a nice rumble. You can put on the rush slip on's up to a 2" baffle with out needing to remap, now when you change your air cleaner too, a remap would be in order.

Your vehicle already has a stainless exhaust system designed just for your vehicle. An aftermarket system will not be of the same caliber of quality. I would see if Toyota offers a TRD system. If not, I would suggest a Classic Chambered muffler installed by a reputable exhaust shop. They are a popular muffler for Toyota Tundra owners.
Set it to factory spec for the best sound you can expect. Stock or manufacturer recommend after market exhaust may enhance the experience. Remember ... noise annoys. Anything else will cause you big trouble ... engines and exhausts are designed to work together ... if you mess with the formula ... you can damage your machine and lose your investment and or void warranties - violate laws. Stick with what the manufacturer recommends ... that is unless you are a engineer and absolutely KNOW what you are doing.
You're correct and that is exactly how I always recommend setup (contrary to what the manuals tell you). It makes no sense to me to run any signal through any electronics or interconnections that neither use it nor improve it. Hence, I have NO SOURCE VIDEO going to or through my receiver and NO high end audio going to my TV (which could just as well be a monitor with NO audio capabilities, right)?
Audio electronics should receive the BEST digital audio directly from it's root source.
The TV should receive the BEST video directly from ITS root source.
THAT is why most all high end A/V gear has separate audio and video in/outputs.
If that means you have to make some switching choices when using different sources, oh well. At least you won't have experience potential degradation from multiple hops or have to troubleshoot problems that could be anywhere in that chain.
Inadvisable. The stock exhaust system and the engine jetting / calibration are balanced for the best"compromise" performance. Removing the baffles will change the exhaust pressures and upset things. It may sound more powerful because it will generate more noise but that's all. If you want a better sound AND better performance change the complete exhaust system and have the induction system matched to the new pipes.
You did not provide the model number so I can not be 100% positive, but in my experience I have *never* seen a separate sound card in a laptop. I was a Gold Tech support tech for Dell and to the best of my knowledge, all laptops have the sound circuitry integrated on the motherboard.
What I would recommend is to enter the BIOS setup on the laptop (before Windows starts) and disable the integrated sound.
Then you can buy a USB sound card and plug it in to a USB port. There is quite a variety of choices. Search the Internet and choose the one you like best.
I am available as a sound system designer. Your request is a bit simple. Given the complexity of the situation there are way too many factors involved to give a simple one or two paragraph solution.
Installing a sound system involves several areas of expertise.
1. Acoustic analysis of the venue.
2. Analysis of the electrical system.
6. Operation and maintenance protocols.
Fixya is an advise site for do it yourself solutions. If you want advise. My advise is to find a consultant, pay them to give you a sound system design, buy the equipment new or second hand. Hire a competent sound engineer, carpenter, rigger, licensed electrician who can build and install your PA in your venue. Best of Luck!

One thing to consider is that the remus importer, maxmoto, seem like really good guys and I know they have good customer service. I have the remus, I didn't buy it from him, but he really helped me out, and gave me a great deal on a couple things I needed.
Yoshimura's stuff is the best under the sun. Be sure to order the TEC kit if you get it. It gives you two sound inserts. The smallest makes the bike as quiet as stock. Best fit and finish there is as well!
That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.
