Hey, this is really simple, and you may already know this but all I do is crank the treble up to around 15db and 'boost' the bass by -5db in Premiere. Hope this helps, if not...just ignore me!
Audition is best for this and has an exact Preset for the task.
Thanks Craig! I expected something like that. It might be easier to follow Brad's example, to keep it all in Final Cut, but if that fails in FCP I'll try Audition on my PC. Too bad Audition doesn't run on my Mac!
Okay Craig, where do I find the effect in Audition? I have 3.0 installed. I'm not looking for a Doppler effect, though that might come in useful later. I want something that makes the audio sound like it's emanating from a tin can, almost.
> This is a general FX question regarding audio and making a clip from a song sound like it's coming from a car radio while still being good enough for theatrical presentation. Any suggestions? Does After Effects have good enough audio FX plugins for this kind of effect? I have access to SoundBooth, Audition, and Soundtrack Pro as well as QuickTime Pro... I also have a tight schedule and no time to dig around for answers or experiment on my own, not to mention that AE CS3 doesn't seem to recognize the audio hardware that came with my new MacBook Pro.

Found this on a sound site....
To start, we need to EQ. Put an EQ plug-in on the channel, or use a VST
plug-in when working within a two-track editor. You need to bring down
the frequencies on the low and the high end, and bring up the mid
frequencies. Start by taking out everything below 400Hz, and then
reducing everything above 2Khz. Then, if you have the option, make a
narrow bandwidth notch of about +4-6db at 500Hz.
If you've got a good compressor, add it as well. You want to start
compressing early, at around -20db, with a ratio of at least 4:1. You
can change this to your liking, though. If you've got it, adding some
light distortion from whatever plug-in you have and like best will give
you some extra effect. And there you have it!

Yep, that's a good one. Thanks for the pointer!
