View attachment 309504 Acc start is all I need to wire up to make this thing come alive!
The amp has a switched ignition wire - AND a remote turn on wire? I'm not seeing it marked but there must be one. Or maybe that's what they are intending to use for one? It's not blue, but a remote wire is a type of switched wire.
Interesting.

So is there sound?
This thread"s silence is all the answer we need. If the product was a success the op would have been the first one to let us know. I had high hopes for this unit to succeed. Not because I am interested in this particular unit but the 4 channel DSP/amp combo that is selling for $190. In my opinion, the built in amp is only powerful enough to run tweeters and midranges. Many midbass will sound better with more wattage than what these amps are providing, including name brands like Jl and Helix. Eventually users will realize they need to add an extra amp anyways to run their midbass to their full potential

There was a thread about the power acoustic. However, like this thread, it went silent. Several people bought it and said they will report back on the results. The thread has gone silent for months. That is your answer in regards to the quality and results. I may bite the the bullet and buy the $190 4 channel DSP/amp and see if the software or noise floor is horrendous.

My motto: buy once and never look back.

Experimenting is cool but at some point u just wanna install something that gets the job done, and move on to something else lol

People on this forum don't just buy once and don't look back. I bought your JL Audio xd 800/8. That's a pretty nice amp but you sold it and replaced it with something else. I see the Helix dsp being sold on here often enough to know that the upgrade bug will eventually bite you.

MOD: DELETED, your post

feel free to re-post WITHOUT the name calling...!
I'm just curious if it works.

I didn't see the post that was deleted - but I'd also be critical of all the other's commentary that's based on assumption - and that assumption itself that's literally from a lack of information.

We have a LOT of problems in the world today caused by people who make assumptions that have no facts behind them, and then when the facts come out - people prefer to believe the imagined version.

I suspect the same will happen here-

Maybe the OP caught Covid, had a work trip, had to make an appointment at a busy local shop... Or two.
Even if it turns out all that's wrong was "bad Chinglish instructions", there will still be lots of people who will absolutely never believe that this thing could even possibly work just fine.

The OP has not been on the site for 9 days now, hopefully it's due to him getting his (budget) Chinese DSP Amp working and he is out driving and listening to music, too busy to check in...!

To me it seemed like his issues had little to do with the hardware and everything to do with lack of knowledge on how to use it? Which is fine, I'm just pointing out that I wouldn't put your decision on this one case lol.
