I was able to compensate for some of my muting issues by lowering the gain on my front stage amp. On talk radio and other lower output music the dayton was muted and when I turned the HU up enough to unmute it was too loud for normal listening. Factory HU high level full freq inputs.

I lowered my amp gain a bit, obviously this fixed the problem but my gain is now set based on the dayton's muting and not solely on my amp as before so I lost a bit of clean db at higher volume.

I wish there was a way to adjust the muting characteristics. I cant find much info on this, doesnt seem to be a common problem.

Maybe it's not giving enough of an output signal to the dsp?

So, your using the signal sense and it is not turning on till its really loud? Could you run a acc wire to the unit and use the remote in for turn on?
I have remote turn on. It must be something with my head unit. It comes on fine, but something is auto muting when output drops.

I used the Dayton DSP for a while in my truck and it never dropped out like that. Do you have a multimeter? If so, measure the voltage at the RCAs. There will be a low voltage if there is output. then you will be able to tell which device is turning off.
