Hi all -
I greatly appreciate your help in advance. Let me give you the run down. Factory head unit. Polk audio in all doors, including tweeters. Running active in the front to a Rockford 4x400. Back doors are running to a Rockford 2x300. Kenwood Excelon 10s (2) under the rear seat driven by a Kenwood amp. I recently had a RF 3sixty.3 installed. The 3sixty started to fail (Hz settings on certain bands were randomly set, to say 10476, 12874, etc.). So I contacted the dealer and shipped it back. This was the second unit. So, before I replace parts (I'm waiting on a store credit, so I have time to solve this), I want to ensure I have the right pieces in place.
I utilized the high level Speaker inputs on the 3sixty. These were OUT of the Sony amp. Now, I need to make sure I spec this correctly because I'm unsure what signals are being sent out of that sony amp...Here are my thoughts...your experience will help me decide.
JL FiX 82 prior to the input on the amp to flatten the signal - then out to a DSP. Or, LC7i handles the high level Speaker inputs, then runs RCA out to the DSP? Or, just run straight to a DSP?
One other consideration, I'm ok with any type of DSP that will work correctly, and have been looking at the Helix, but after reading many threads here, I'm curious if the MS-8 is a better option?
At any rate, please let me know your thoughts - I greatly appreciate it.
Edit: I'd like to keep the OEM sound pieces, if possible - but if I have to sacrifice those to ensure I get the sound I'm paying for, so be it.
Edit 2: If the LC7i ONLY is also the best option, I'm ok with that too - like I said, I just want the best option and the best sound for what I have from a component perspective.
