    What brands do people like for HU's?

    youre going to find tons of pioneer responses to this question, and for good reason. JVC is making a comeback too. Sony makes some good stuff, Alpine isnt a bad choice albeit spendy

    Where Are the Headunits With an HDMI Output???

    ive only ever seen composite outs on decent decks

    the issues he listed sounds like connection issue that could be anywhere between the amp and the tweeter. So it could be wiring or even a resistor in the passive x-overs getting frisky. Bi-amping good speakers is always the best way to get clean power to the driver. If the tweeter isnt damaged and the wiring is good, that doesnt leave very many options for culprits of the issue. In all honesty, @randpost its just going to sound better biamping the fronts, period

    They have several thousand dollars wrapped up in gear already and no sane person would do that if they didn't want immaculate sound. The added cost of a dsp would be less than what they probably have invested in sound deadening if the weight figure is correct. Why try to argue the point of a passive setup? The end result of the active will greatly surpass the passive all day long. If the cost of an additional 2 channel, dsp, cables and install isn't an issue for the op, then let them get it and be happier as an end result. Nobody with this amount of gear should be passive if no aversion to a dsp, laptop and an additional 2 channels of amplification didn't make them balk in the slightest

    also, i do see where people talk a lot about putting a resistor in line with the tweeter as a backup in case the dsp's xover forgets the x-over point and lets all frequencies thru to it. youll not see nearly as much parasitic loss in the power as you would with a conventional passive x-over and still have a failsafe for your tweets

    1: yes 2: yes, probably cheaper to add an addtl 2 channel

    i cant think of a dsp that cant do both. seems like you have a pretty decent budget, and if you want to lay down the coin for it the audison bit one is pretty good from what ive seen.

    if youre not exaggerating about your install, then you have no reason not to do an active crossover for your mids/tweets. If you went that extreme with everything else, you shouldnt limit yourself with power robbing passive x-overs. You would need 2 additional channels for active if you want to retain your rear speakers and add a DSP since the deck only has 6 rca outputs and youd need minimum 7 (2 front tweet, 2 front mid, 2 rear fill and at least 1 for sub)

    Has anyone used these in a car? (Emotiva Big Ego)

    yeah, i missed his second post showing the dsp he was looking at and only realized it after he said that he was confused because he was going to go directly into it from the interface also, +1

    i guess if youre going to a DSP after the interface, it should be ok in concept.

    Rear speakers not working, help!

    you can also leave the speakers in the rear deck and test them without speaker wires connected to them
  12. 4x6's up front? go f**k yourself

    5 Channel or Seperates?

    if theyre in an enclosed area like the spare tire well, they will get very hot, but that can be alleviated with a couple cheap fans and vent slots in the lid

    Rear speakers not working, help!

    what about the fade? or even an on/off setting for the rear speakers? can you test them with another speaker like a small home audio speaker?
