Question for those using aftermarket DSP...

I recently installed a helix DSP pro in my 14' Limited with alpine system. I tapped the front tweeters, front doors, and sub after the amp to use as high level inputs into the DSP. My plan is a 3 way front with sub and no rear fill.

I got the DSP playing and I cut the wires, at the amp, to turn off the left rear speaker, the whole left side stopped playing. Re-connected the wires and all was fine again.

My question is how do I go about disconnecting the rear doors, surround, and center channel?

Re: Question for those using aftermarket DSP...

Greetings,

Nice DSP. After I pay off a lot things, that is my next purchase to replace the RF 360.3.

In theory, it should have worked. Normally, when I perform any cutting to eliminate or splice, I stager the +/- leeds to prevent shorting. I use good quality electrical tape to wrap them.

I am not aware of any difference in between my 2011 and yours. Here is the wiring block if you have not seen yet:

Going directly to the speakers is not the much trouble for the center and the rear door. The D-pillar is the time consuming piece.

Best for now.

Re: Question for those using aftermarket DSP...

You might want to consider retaining the center channel as you might lose some of the radio features. I'm pretty sure the audio for phone bluetooth runs through that little guy. As far as your other issue, the simple fix is to just fade the radio to the front. You can still do what you want and leave those speakers connected to the factory amp. I left mine connected and have had no issues.

Re: Question for those using aftermarket DSP...

Retaining the center channel is not an option. My helix isn't designed to run a center channel and any speakers still playing off the factory amp will cause time by and response issues. Also if I fade to the front, the sub gets turned down.

I'm gonna try disconnecting the wires at the speaker rather than at the amp and see what happens.

I figured it out. I just unplugged all the speaker wires from the speaker itself. Maybe I snipped the wrong wires at the amp?

Although the oem amp to DSP is. Amusing some phase issues but the helix has quite a bit of adjustments for phase so I was able to get it close. Sounds pretty damn good so far with minimal tweaking

Greetings,

I think right now, only the Mosconi has edge to the Helix Pro. Otherwise, for the price point, the Helix is right up their. Those processor's truly make a difference.

Best for now.
