Re: audio help

Hi, i am working on a similar project starting with replacing my 430n in my 9 alpine factory setup. Im going to utilize the idatalink component to retain controls and cameras.

You mention looking for a head unit with built-in dsp. Would this negate the need for an external dsp and provide overkill if one is added before aftermarket amp?

Im looking into kenwood dnn991hd, or pioneer avic7100nex units. Both have internal EQ, would either of these benefit from added dsp or should i go cheaper head unit and add external dsp?

Sorry for the hijack, but it looked like the OP and i were having same thoughts.

Thanks for your time.

Greetings,

The need for an external DSP falls into 2 categories that is in some cases are both.

The 1st is to have a better surround experience than the factory system provides. Today, you can choose from the Alpine Unit which will give you a 5.1 system or the JBL MS-8 with it's 7.1 capabilities which matches the design of your system. So, here, the question you have to ask your self is, do I want to retain the surround or go with a traditional front/rear/sub system. With traditional, the 2 headunits you mentioned will be fine for you unless you require a lot of fine tuning.

The 2nd category is how much fine tuning you want. For that, I recommend to figure out your speaker first. Then you can ask your self how much to I want to improve the sound, I am in the audiophile category where I have to have each speaker time aligned.

The question of overkill is really depending upon your perfection you want to achieve. And no worries, you did not hijack anything.

Keep us updated.

Best for now.
