Re: DLS vs. Arc multichannel amps
Desertheat-He wants to run active-I now the set he is using has the DRT-25 which needs to be crossed over no lower than about 2.5khz and up. Looking at the manual it apppears there is a 3x mulitplier on the HP filter on the front channels bringing it to 1800hz and up. Is that correct. Which is not going to get work with the DRT-25 tweeter's. I would say they might play that low with a steeper slope but its risky.
This from the manual on the A4
The filter setup are as follows:
Front:Lowpass (LP) 50 - 125 Hz Highpass (HP) 20 - 200 Hz alt 60 - 600 Hz (x 3 button)
Rear: Lowpass (LP) 45 - 200 Hz alt. 90 - 400 Hz (x 2 button) Highpass (HP) 20 - 200 Hz
The x2 and x3 buttons are used if you run a 2-way
I am not pulling for either amp in particular. Can we help this guy out in what will get him active 2-way front off the amp x-overs.
I will try and find the manual for the ARC.
The ARC and DLS are both at the top of the yep when it comes to quality.IMO I would no hesitate to run either one. I like them both. Excellent products.IMO
