Stand alone processors or any robust processor is extremely valuable in a 2-way front stage also. Again, probably even more needed because of the difficulty of tuning. Otherwise, your system will never sound as good as it could.Yeah,
It's just the extra stuff that's all, the bigger picture, maybe I don't look at what I will be hearing, I just look at the extra things, including a stand alone processor, the laptop hook up.
Maybe that is why I don't use a stand alone processor, what would be the point of having one other than having a 3 way front to have more fun, but so far what I hear it's decent.
It would be nice if they made a 2.5-3" 2 way point source driver with a tiny tweeters placed in the middle. But either they are not practical, deliver better performance or the whole point is to show off extra cones on the dash and pillars to psychologically impress people.
