how do you plan to do front rear and sub with only 6 out? Are going full passive?

Front is two channels, rear is two channels and sub is two channels....so 6 channel in? 6 channels out?
Yea I have dash speakers but those are passively crossed over and the power is from the headunit. The 4 mid basses (2 front, 2 rear) will be in the front and read channels and the sub, on the sub channels. well thats what I'm looking for but Ive seen no cheaper units setup like this.
If you are staying passive, i see no real reason for a DSP. But i don't want this thread to go to 200+ replies like your other one. Just buy a minidsp for now its the cheapest once you can buy and will let you get your feet wet i guess. But honestly i think you are not ready, especially if you plan on putting 4 midbass driver on 2 channels, and ignoring your dash speakers all together. Sounds like a train wreck tbh.

I think you are misunderstanding me.
I have a 4 channel (4x100). Each channel drives one silverflute 6.5. Then I have 4 channels on my headunit. (4x15w). The headunit has passive crossovers inline with some 2” whispers in the dash, and a set of Dayton air motion tweets. Yep channels are running those mid ranges and tweets. Then I have a pair of Dayton air motion tweets on the rear head unit power channels, in the rear with the silverflutes.
then I have a separate punch 750 sub amp. The dsp would be used only for the four channels of the silverflutes AND for the sub amp. That’s why I need 6 channel in and six channel out. My head unit has front/rear/sub rca outs and I want to retain that control (fader, individual volume level of each speaker, and the sub control). I don’t want multiple paths of changing settings. Like I want to install the dsp, adjust it to the frequencies that sound best, set it and forget it. Then if any minor tweaking needs to be done, the headunit will be what I use.
Passive crossovers ARE ONLY ON the headunit powered dash speakers. I MAY put a small four channel on the dash speakers and tweets so I can use the dsp if it has enough outputs.

I think i will stand pat with my trainwreck comment. You cannot DSP your heat unit powered speakers. So you have 4 mid bass drivers and a sub getting external power. Those can be DSP'd....but why bother with only have the system? You need to do a lot more reading before you buy any more gear.

I never said anything about using the dsp on my head unit speakers UNTIL I put them on a amp. I wrote that in my reply. Until I get an amp on those, they will remain on the passive crossovers. Not sure how you how it’s a train wreck when I never said I’m using the dsp on them while using headunit power. I know it doesn’t work that way lol.

maybe reread it or read the whole thing or at least read the last sentence at least.
so what are you going to use the 6 output channels on? And more important what speakers will still play only not off the DSP? Unless all speakers are running on the dsp i would call it a train wreck.

If you read my posts I answered that already. Probably more than once. Are you trying to see how many times I’ll answer the same question? Lol

I’ll say it again. Front is two channels, right? Rear is two channels, right? And sub is two channels, right? (Actually it mono but I’m saying that for simplicity). So if my math is correct, that would be 6 channels, no?
I can break that down even further if you like.
Running on punch 4x100 amp
front right- channel 1 silverflute 6.5
Front left- channel 2 silverflute 6.5
Rear right- channel 3 silverflute 6.5
Rear left - channel 4 silverflute 6.5
Running on punch 750
Sub right - channel 5 (8” sub)
Sub left - channel 6 (8” sub)

then FOR NOW I’ll leave it a train wreck and keep the aura sound whispers and Dayton tweets on the passive crossovers ON HEADUNIT POWER NOT ON THE DSP. When the non unlimited budget allows, I’ll get a small low power amp for the dash speakers SO THEN I can untrainwreck it and put them on the dsp.
This isn’t a competition car. I’m not trying to impress anyone. I just want decent sound and I’m not interested in spending a bunch of money doing it. The car is more of a race car than a car stereo project. It’s not a daily driver. It’s a weekend car. I’m not wrapped up in this hobby enough to spend 5-6-7 thousand dollars on a stereo. Some of you have more money in your dsp than I have in my whole system. I’ve said it in another thread, before I’d drop a bunch of cash on stereo items, I’d rather put that money towards a bigger turbo, new drag tires, drivetrain parts etc. that’s where my priorities lie in this car.
So if you eventually need 10 channels output, and you are on a budget why waste money on a 6 channel DSP that is only going to make your system worse? Or at best it will be a push. IOW, you don't need a DSP yet. Which is what i said in my first post. I see how your threads build up to 200+ posts now. LOL.

Most dsp’s I see if they have 6 channel input, they don’t have just 6 out. Usually have 8 or 10. Am I right?
so now I don’t need a dsp? Lol.
so I posted a thread on how to cut a peak frequency from my subs. First response from Andy at audiofrog said I need a dsp. So now I dont? Noted.
You wanna know why my threads get to be so long? I’ll tell you. I’ll post what I’m looking for. Hoping to get a simple few suggestions. Then I get someone trying to push me this way, that way or some other way. Then they don’t read my complete posts. Prime example above. I was clear in why I needed 6 channels. I thought I was detailed enough, but if you don’t read everything I wrote and skim what I wrote then say I’m working with a train wreck, then of course I’m going to ATTEMPT to explain myself again. Anyways. Whatever. I just wanted someone to maybe point me in a direction on an affordable unit that would do what I’m looking for. Nothing more, nothing less.
You seem to be a smug little sarcastic know it all, at least that is how you come off. I never said you don't need a dsp. I said you don't need a 6 out dsp to run half your system. It would be a bad idea, and you can choose to listen or you can ignore that fact. I really don't care.
