It's pretty strait forward but one question I ha e is the bass processing. Under the FX tab it says "augmented bass processing applied on channel F. Then at the bottom there is check boxes that read.
" channel E - subwoofer output" and
"channel F+G - line output".

Right now my sub amp is using channel G and H. If I want to try this, do I move my sub to channel F and use a Y adapter or do those check boxes do something I'm not understanding?

Default Re: Helix DSP.3 questions

how many sub amps are you using?
if one why are you using g & h for sub out?

Just one. But it has left right input so I just used both.

This is something that has been pointed out to the crew at Audiotec Fischer. The channels are based on the first DSP that the functions were available in and the labeling just needs to be addressed for each other processor and the available channels.

It shouldn't be too long before we see an update. I believe this will be a part of it.

The new software is available as a beta on the website now. It has been working just fine for me and the mislabeled options are gone.

Has anybody used the rta auto feature on any of the helix dsp's? It looks like it only uses graphic eq.

I use it quite often, and yes it uses graphic EQ. If I see it doing strange adjustments I tune using parametric or a combination and see if I can improve it.

It is really quite good with averaging out the response. Our demo vehicle was tuned using just the Auto EQ, and it sounds darn good.

How about if your running active? Change the match range to suit the driver? I use rew but my brother likes this way cause it's on the same screen. I'm trying to persuade him to learn rew.

I ALWAYS run active.

Yes, you can break the system all down and tune each speaker individually if you like. You would definitely want to set the auto tune frequencies for each channel as you go through it. I probably wouldn't bother with the sub and auto EQ.

REW is a great program and can help you pinpoint and fix a lot of issues in a system, but for every day tuning I love using the built in RTA.

Looking forward to trying out RTA once I get my new amp installed

Are you using it in systems with rear fills too?

I finally swapped out my Mosconi 8to12 to the Helix DSP.3

The Helix is definitely way more intuitive to use but my one problem I am having is that I am getting a loud turn on and off thump now. Anyone know how to remedy this? Remote out is from the DSP to the amps. I've messed with the turn on and off delay but that hasn't helped much.

Hey man your in San Diego. Me too, same processor. All I can think of is turn on timing. Try setting it at 0 maybe? Are all your speakers thumping or just the sub?

Seems like it's just the sub but I can be wrong. I haven't done too much troubleshooting yet but definitely loudest is from the sub.

Does helix just take an average of a few mics and use that for a default Cal file for the mic they sell? I wanna use my brothers with REW but nowhere can I find anything about a Cal file.
