The miniDC gives isolated 12V power and also provides a remote relay for turning on amps. miniDSP works very well and lots of advice here as a resource. A little more DIY than others, but it is a small unit with lots of features. There are two 2x4 minDSP's. You would want the "Balanced" rather than "Unbalanced" The balanced can take a higher input voltage and is designed to be mounted. The wiring uses phoenix connectors, rather than RCA, but you can cut the cable or make an adapter. I just cut some female RCA interconnects.All you need is a single rca cable from the headunit.
You will need the mini dc for car audio to make it work. I believe it isolates the processor from the rest of the electrical system to prevent noise. And make sure you get the advanced plug-in. The amount of power this unit has in the eq and crossovers will blow your mind. Software is about as straightforward as it gets.
