factory dsp question

Is the factory dsp on the 430n built into the head unit or is it built into the amp at the rear?

Im wondering because if its not at the headunit. I think im gonna run 4 channel amp to 4 speaker's and monoblock to subs and disconnect the factory amp ONLY if the dsp is built into the amp NOT the headunit. Thanks

Re: factory dsp question

Greetings,

The factory DSP is built into the amp if you have either the Alpine of Hk system.

Yes, you can by bass the unit if you want to. Their is harness out their that does it. Or, if you want a better quality sound, then get rid of the 430n and go for an aftermarket unit. It will be a significant difference, especially couple with aftermarket amps.

Best for now.

Im keeping factory headunit but i only care about powering the front and rear doors with a 4 channel and unhook the center and rear pillars and unhook the factory amp. Then i was planning on summing those into a dsp then into the 4 channel and monoblock amp.

I should beable to use my headunit volume also i believe because i wont be using the factory amp with any crossover point am i right?

Like if i wire straight from head unit into aftermarket dsp i can maintain factory volume on the head unit and dont have to use a dsp remote correct?

Re: factory dsp question

Also do any of the dash kits for our vehicles actually fit for aftermarket HU? If i went after market i would do alpine or pioneer. But i also wanna retain rear backup cam and all the stock features. I believe installation alone would be ober 500 then the unit and all the control stuff would prob be anothee 1k

Re: factory dsp question

Greetings,

Now that CES 2016 is over, you can look at Cruthfield for the headunits. Between now and the next couple months when the new units hit the market, the previous models start to fall in pricing.

Based upon your setup, which is a traditional front/rear/sub, you can put together an excellent system on a decent budget. With the right harness, the majority of today's aftermarket HU will allow you retain many of the factory features such as the backup camera. For example, my Pioneer AppRadio 3 is using the factory camera.

The other positive point of using a new headunit, you do not have to bother with channel summing, an additional DSP and you get a much cleaner signal. And yes, their are dash kits for you. You just have to determine if you want a sound quality or an SPL (loud and pumping) system.

Best for now.

Greetings,

Alpine has a very decent DSP built into their HU's which will work for setup with no problem. Pioneer has the same features as well. But I would recommend to spend just a little more money and look into their exelon line of HU's. You should see price drops shortly and even open box deals from Crutchfield soon. BestBuy is also not a bad choice to look either.

If you do want the extra performance of a DSP, then look into the combos of the DSP/AMPs. This is now becoming a big thing in the aftermarket world. Even AudioControl is getting into the act shortly.

Best for now.

Ok ill think about it. Might see how it sounds without dsp. Honestly never heard s vehicle with dsp. Nor a vehicle with hertz, focal or any other high end speakers so im not sure a dsp would be a crazy difference for me
