View Full Version : WANTED: Blade DSP-2X Servo Programmer Software & information about the "RC-DSP"remote

02-19-2007, 02:04 PM
I'm looking for t/Blade DSP-2X Servo Programmer Software for my DSP-2X w/the "new" DSP-2XEM processor.
Unfortunately my old DSP-1 software (ver. 1.36) does not recognize the enhanced 2XEM processor.:crying:
The eprom versions are 1x SVU1R39 & 1x SVU3R39 in my DSP-1 and 1x SVU1R39 & 1x SVU3R40 in t/DSP-2X.
Furthermore I'm looking for information about the slimline "RC-DSP" remote control, especially t/data and/or values of t/2 presets "A" & "B".
Any information WILL BE GR8ly appreciated!

Out of curiosity & frustration I've taken my DSP-2X apart & noticed some very strange/interesting things 2 say t/least!
I was wondering if some of t/DSP-2X owners around here, if any, would like 2 share their insights w/me?

Btw. the "?factory?" seal on my DSP-2X was still intact - anyway here we go:

Here's t/seal on my DSP-2X.

I've also noticed that someone has modified/?hacked? t/parallel port connections.

Furthermore t/resistor "R85" & t/transistor "Q8" are missing and the diode "D3" has been bypassed by a 9,44kOhm resistor.

Detail shot:

??? Can anyone (current or ex-owner, employee or designer/technician) confirm these alterations / modifications ???
Thanx for interest & patience !

I am looking forward 2 hearing from you soon!

Hello "Rich B",
thanx 4 t/link!

That was t/one, but I was fortunate enough 2 get it 4 free from a cs&p-Forums member ! :D

I can now confirm that t/DSP-2X is supposed 2 l@@k like this on t/inside.
DSP-2X: Modified parallel port/solder side (2 traces cut & 2 new connections)

DSP-2X: Modified circuit board/component side (transistor "Q8" & resistor "R85" missing, "D3" w/bypass resistor)
http://www.imagehut.eu/images/5590DSP-2X, R85, Q8 missing.jpg

It was only a matter of t/right software version (DSPDOS rev.2.00 & upwards).
Special THANX 2 "tristan20" from t/car sound & performance-Forums 4 providing me with t/correct software! :clap:
Honorable mention:
"robmar", also from cs&p-Forums. Thanx 4 Software & Links! :bigwave:

..., but I'm still looking for information about BLADE's RC-DSP remote!

Sometimes manufacturers will find a bug and need to make a change, or will simply design a board that has more features than needed. It's easier to just leave off components in the latter case, and do bypass/re-circuit work in the former case, than to redesign the entire circuit board.
