Gen6 AUDIO: What does ASL stands for while we adjust the stereo?

What does ASL stands for? It shows after setting the bass, tre., balance, fade , etc of the audio system. The ASL has a high, mid and low setting, which one would get the best result?

RTFM

It is basically an automatic sound level adjustment that works off of a microphone in the vehicle that senses the noise level and will increase/decrease the sound level (mainly volume) accordingly to compensate. The high/mid.low settings are for how much adjustment you want it to make (sensitivity).

This is where you insert your signature

Oh, that's cool. I was just reading the features of the Accord found out they have it and thought that's pretty cool. I am glad that ours have it too.

The AV manual talks about a "Vehicle Speed Signal Circuit between StereoComponent Amplifier and Combination Meter" I don't think it uses a microphone. I personally think the ASL sucks!!!! or it does not work well in my Camry.
