Run the amp in 4 channel mode, otherwise there is no reason to have the 4 channel dsp. Wire 4 channels of rca cable from the dsp outputs to the 4 amp rca inputs, and wire the speakers individually to the 4 amp outputs. Make sure you have proper xovers set up in the dsp for the tweeters before you power them up. And don't use the factory speaker wires, run your own.Hello all,
I've got a question that I can't figure out and google ain't helping me out.
This is the first time I've used a DSP, a 4 channel amp, and running front stage only.
This is the DSP I'm using :miniDSP 2x4
This is my amp: Amazon.com: Alpine KTP-445U Universal Power Pack Amplifier
I've been recommended this setup on a related forum and people have had great success but I can't get any answers.
I'm running a LC2i: Amazon.com: AudioControl LC2i 2 Channel Line Out Converter with AccuBASS and Subwoofer Control: Car Electronics
from my factory radio and tapping the Front speakers. From there I run the rcas out the main output to the dsp and then there's 4 outputs on the dsp
that run to my alpine amp. I've been told I need to run the amp in 2ch mode but I need a 4 channel amp which confuses me. Do I run the 4 outputs from the dsp to the 4 inputs on my alpine amp still? And if I put it in 2 channel mode what do I do from there? Also the dsp has a file that I loaded onto it which will delay the tweeters and woofers in the door to where they closely play together and hit my ear at the same time.
So my question is how do I wire this stuff together to get the information to each individual driver? The tweeters and woofers are wired in parallel so if I run the alpine back into the factory wiring how do they know which speaker needs which delay/crossover setting?
Thank you for any insight. I can understand using a 4 channel amp and separately wiring each channel to each tweeter and woofer. I don't understand getting a 4 channel amp and putting it in 2 ch to run 4 drivers with different delays.
