While I've mostly been happy with my current car audio installation, the call of 'more tweaking' got the better of me, and I wanted a DSP. The commercial products seemed to all have either significant technical limitations, reliability issues, or poor software implementations..and were all way too expensive for what I consider my 'toy' budget. So, minidsp here I come. I've never attempted building anything electronic before..but it looked easy enough.
The current system:
Kenwood DNX691HD head unit,
Apline PDX 4.150 (4 channels for front doors)
Alpine mrv-f345 (2 channel bridged for sub, 2 channel for future)
JL audio 12W3 in a sealed box
JL audio ZR800 mid bass in the doors
Infinity perfect Kappa 5.25 component set in the doors
The plans:
I don't have enough wires into the doors (yet) to run fully active, so I'm keeping the kappas on their passive crossover. I'm also going to keep the Sub-main crossover handled in the Kenwood head unit so I can keep front seat sub boost available while I'm driving.
(2) Minidsp 2x4 boards with the miniDC power supply in one box
one to run the crossover and EQ for the front channels and the other to eq the sub.
In the future, if I do run new speaker wires from the extra 2 amp channels to the tweeters to go full active, I can split the system to be 1 minidsp per side, L/R.
I considered the 2x8 board, but it was just too large, so I've settled with the limitations of doing 2 2x4's..and the miniSHARC based system is just too much for a first timer to tackle.
The boards arrive.
Mounted to a laser cut steel baseplate
Layout inside the box
nearly complete
I realize that I never took a photo of the finished product..I'll add that later.
I still need to build a permanent mounting location in my trunk. I discovered that the class D amp puts out some EMF that the miniDSP will pick up if it is right up against it (which was my first plan) so right now it is just velcro'd to the carpet (hence no pictures).
So far, it seems to be working well. I have a LOT of tuning ahead of me to really dial in the eq and time alignment settings; but that is half the fun.
