How is the match series amps? Looking to pair it with my p six with a 10fx to run an esotar 1200 but wondering if the 300 watts will be sufficient
It is my understanding that any component in your audio system should be set at the max volume before clipping when tuning. There are exceptions, of course, like if your system is capable of playing louder than you ever reasonably would then lower the volume of the component that may introduce the most noise until you are at the maximum normal listening volume. Then keep your hearing safety in mind when measuring if you are in the vehicle during tuning (which I prefer).So this question isn't specific to the P-Six but didn't want to create a new thread just for this question...
This is my first attempt at tuning, I am using my computer w/ REW connected via aux to my OEM H/U to measure. I am using the sweeps method. How do I account for the volume setting on my computer?
What I mean is, I finished my first tune and it sounded pretty good but there wasn't enough volume. I realized that my computer volume setting was nearly maxed, so I went back and tried remeasuring at a much lower volume setting on my computer but same volume setting on my h/u and sure enough the sweep was at a much lower volume.
The only thing I can think to do, is set the h/u to a particular volume setting and take an SPL measurement with Helix at its stock setting. Then connect the computer and determine what volume setting the computer has to be at to give me the same SPL measurement, with the same H/U volume setting.
Am I missing something really simple?
The more efficient the drivers the better.I'm just curious about which speakers in a 2-way would be a great pick to be amplified from the Helix P Six DSP...
Brax Matrix 6.1 and 1.1?
Sinfoni Maestoso comps?
Audiofrog GB60 and GB15?
Audio development MM6 and Aerospace 28?
It is such an amazing product but I'm not sure if the power provided by the P Six is enough for some people drive their 6.5s.
I emailed AF on this and here is their response:Not sure if this has been covered here .... Has anyone tried experimenting with the Dynamic Headroom Management setting in the DCM section of the p Six? Here is the description from the AF change log, it was introduced in v3.15:
(HELIX P SIX DSP) - Added the feature 'Dynamic headroom management" which allows to increase the maximum output power of each channel pair by accepting higher distortion.
It does seem louder but I am a little concerned about how much distortion. Are we still getting 120w in SQ mode or do we need to switch it to SPL mode to get all of that power?
